Hi, I'm planning next years family holiday and have decided on Thailand. What I'd like to know is has anybody done any diving in Samui? Any recommended dives would be appreciated. I'm currently PADI OWD, Cancun earliery this year, diving in local Scottish waters with Advance Open Water booked for January. Thanks

Hi,

I worked as a dive instructor on Koh Tao for many years so every so often we would head over to the sites around Samui. The diving is Okay and yes it is suitable for a family. However I would recommend the west coast (if you are planning to come between Nov and May). Koh Lanta is a beautiful island with great beaches, places to eat, and very good diving definately worth thinking about. If not then better stay on Koh Tao as the sites are closer and diving a little better. Another option would be Perhentian Islands, Malaysia but that too is seasonal May till October..

Samui is fine but there is better diving to be had in within reach.
