Comments the good: they gave me my own dive master ( named Tiger); other experienced divers were in groups; only photographed
octopus, moray eels, tropical fishes, stone fish, etc.; the people running the operation remembered that I wanted low carbo food; the air temp. was 31 C, the surface temp. was 29C and the bottom temp. was 28C.
the operation was well organized for transfers and diving.

the bad: the boat ( named all4dive.com) was sorta crowded at 50 divers including students (OW and 2 adv.); you pay for 3 dives; it takes from 7:15 AM till ~ 6PM. There was really no bad stuff; the boat was at Karon, > 6 km away ( 2 buses)

I was well prepared for the dives; yrs. ago, I did the Phi Phi islands
and Similans,
