I picked this place after scouring TripAdvisor; it seemed like a solid place to begin learning about what scuba diving had to offer. I went in with almost zero knowledge about scuba diving and had very little idea what to expect.
They had a free taxi pickup from the dock. The second I stepped off the boat, Koh, the taxi driver was there to drive me to the office, a 5ish minute drive. I was in a 4 person class with Will North and you can tell he used to be a teacher. He has a way of explaining things very carefully and deliberately so you don't miss anything. We spent 1 day learning scuba basics in a beautiful little pool, then went on 4 dives the following 2 days. The dives were a lot of fun and we even got to see a little family of clownfish. Everything was really well planned out, the equipment was all new, and there was ample time to try out everything you learned in the classroom. The morning dives had breakfast included. We finished out the class by filling out our new log books (included with the course) with lists of all the fish we saw on our 4 dives :)
Worth mentioning: The staff is very professional and really went the extra mile for me during my stay. Jesper gave me a free lift to my next guesthouse after the course was over (a huge help because taxis are pricey on Koh Tao) and Will helped me rent a bike at a trustworthy place. These are all things that have nothing to do with scuba diving, so it was really impressive to me they took the time to do all these things. Lastly, their office had great, FAST wifi, which a lifesaver for someone traveling without a phone ^^
So, in a nutshell, this is a great place to get certified and/or do other courses!
