Lots of options

More on Khao Lak
The Khao Lak area boasts one of the highest number of dive operations of any destination in Thailand.
Travelfish says:

They’re spread all over the main drag in Nang Thong, with options in virtually all of the smaller beach towns as well. Everything from day dives to full PADI certifications are offered in a number of languages.

The Similan islands are the main draw from Khao Lak, but most dive companies can also take you to Ko Bon, Ko Surin and Richilieu Rock, among other destinations in the region. Some also have live aboard ships that offer multiple day excursions to a host of sites throughout Thailand’s Andaman Sea.

When considering which dive company to go with, it pays to remember that, more often than not, you get what you pay for.
