    I have never been scuba diving, but am looking into getting my PADI certification on Koh Tao in October. Was hoping I could get some recommendations on what people view as the best place in terms of overall services provided and bang for your buck!

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    There are plethora of diveshops on Koh Tao with relatively equal quality level. You can select one from official PADI listing:

    I have personal experiance with CrystalDive and can recommend it.

    But please be advised that October is not the best time to visit Koh Tao. Monsoon season usually begin in November in the Gulf of Thailand, but last few years heavy rains and strong winds hit Koh Tao in October, causing ferry service problem.
