Diving Schools for Young Teens

Posted by BaliThai on 28/12/2016 at 17:35

I am traveling to Koh Tao in June, 2017 with my two daughters who will be 12 and 15 at that time. We are looking into getting our PADI open water certifications while in Koh Tao, and we hoped someone had good recommendations (preferably based on personal experience) for dive schools that are particularly good with young teens.

We've looked at the articles on TravelFish related to diving on Koh Tao, and we'd also love hearing from people's experiences, good, bad, otherwise with the various dive schools on the island. Thank you!

I suggest you check first the minimun age for OWD with Padi or SSI. If I remember right it is 14 years.
