I postponed my scuba dive for the second to last day of my visit. What a mistake! If I hadn't, I would have definitely done the 4-day open water certification course.
Diving in Koh Tao is awesome! The marine life is beautiful and diverse. The water is warm, clean and clear.
There are numerous diving schools on the island. While I don't know how diving is with them, my experience with Planet Scuba was great. My instructor was professional and made me feel safe. Unlike the other boats that we saw, with tons of people in them, we were just 4 divers which made the experience much better.
If you decide to do a Try Dive, make sure you have enough days left to complete a PADI/SSI certification as you are very likely to want to get back into the water the next day!
