I searched for 'scuba' and found there are many bcsb members who can scuba dive, but most of those threads were from 2005-2007.
I plan to get my Open Water PADI Certification in Ko Samui, Thailand in February 2013.
I've heard it's a lot cheaper, easier, and much better to dive in warm water for complete newbies. I've snorkeled but never scuba'd. (= Oh and I'm also told I should buy my own mask here first and bring it over instead of using the school's.
I've just been researching on the internet and reading reviews from tripadvisor and lonely planet. Does anyone have any recommendations or tips? Any other good review sites to recommend? School you've been to or someone you know has been to?
I've narrowed it down to 2 choices:
the dive academy
Any helpful suggestions welcome.
