A friend of mine gave me the tip to head to the south of Koh Tao where its not that crowded and busy as on the main beach Sairee. Following his advice I ended up in Chalok Baan Kao, the main beach in the south, walking around to check and find accommodation I met the guys from Alvaro Diving who helped me to find a place to stay without even asking if I want to dive. After I settled in at Taraporn resort I went around to checked different dive shops in Chalok bay only to find out that the place where I started suited me the most.
I did my Open Water course with Jesse one of Alvaro Divings Instructors. It was great fun, we were only 4 people in the group and he really took time with us. Thanx again I didnt think that it would be that easy : )
After the course I went for 4 great fun dives with Jacque.
By the end of my stay i felt like i had become part of the family atmosphere, i will miss the dive team at Alvaro. Thanx Andraes, Jesse, Jacque and Jeff.

Equipment: No need to bring any equipment its all included in the price.

All the rental equipment they gave me looked in a good condition

Address: Chalok Baan Kao Bay, Koh Tao
Directions: In Koh Tao take a taxi to Chalok Bay, on the beach take the small concrete bridge to Taraporn restaurant, cross it and follow the next little bridge to a small beach, here you find Babaloo Bar and Alvaro diving, a bit further are the Taraporn bungalows.
