Is Koh Samui a good destination for beginners?

I am fairly new to scuba diving, and I'm relocating to Thailand very soon, so I want to take the chance to explore Koh Samui and I thought of doing scuba diving, but is it a good destination for beginners?

I am planning to take a tour with Boutique Yachting because they have many years in the sector and their ships are pretty good (https://www.boutiqueyachting.com/yachts/), but I do not know if they will help me with scuba diving (I will message them haha).

But, according to you experts, is it a good idea to do scuba diving as a beginner in Koh Samui? Thanks a lot in advance!

Yeah, Koh Samui is pretty good for beginners - there are LOADS of dive schools there to take you through the early stages of learning too.. I would recommend not going for the cheapest center - to a large extent you pay for what you get and its not a sport you want to cut corners in!

Hi. we dived with the Dive academy. They are a professional outfit that make safety the first priority. Water can be choppy, so travel sickness tablets are a must if you suffer. This dive school do provide them onboard. http://www.thediveacademysamui.com.

The best place for Diving in Thailand and learning is Koh Tao, however if you are just wanting to learn then Koh Samui its probably a nice place to start.
