one-day dive without certification in Koh Tao

Posted by FaceTheHorizon on 2/6/2013 at 13:10

Hello...

I previously did a one-day scuba dive with an instructor off of Cairns at the Great Barrier Reef. This trip, I'm traveling with a friend who is PADI certified, but I don't have the time to complete the whole course, either here at home or in Thailand.

So I'm looking for recommendations of good dive operators located in Koh Tao who offer one-day outings that allow me to dive in the Gulf and not just a pool. (Yes, I've done some Google-ing already; I just wanted to see what users here have to say.)

Re the Burma thing, I did a tour with Golden Harp the other day (the taxi service run by released political prisoners) and they referred to it, to me, as Burma. Also met with another politically active group the other day and they referred to it as Burma. Others, hoteliers etc have been using Myanmar.

We'll be using Burma/Myanmar on the site but using the new city names (so Yangon not Rangoon) -- so I'm fitting in as many Rangoons and Burmas as I can before we put anything on the site.

Yes, you are right. Myanmar is formerly called as Barma. The capital city is now called as Yangoon, not Rangoon.
Thanks for a nice post!
