I am going to Koh Phangan for the Full Moon Party and I want to go diving at the same time. Which dive shop should I use?

Try H20 Scuba in Thong Nai Pan. They are very professional and have their own speedboat.
Managed by a Welshman (Lee) H20 Scuba is an efficient operation with professionally managed dive trips and experienced instructors. H20 caters largely for the guests at 5 star resorts in Thong Nai Pan Noi, but they also take guests staying elsewhere.
20 Minutes By Speedboat to Sail Rock
By speedboat it takes only 20 minutes to the main dive site of Sail Rock and about an hour to Koh Tao, expect it take to 2 to 3 times as long to go to the dive site if you use any other company on Koh Phangan as you travel to the dive site in a slower converted wooden fishing boat.
Three Outlets in Thong Nai Pan
H20 Scuba has a shop on the beach at both Thong Nai Pan Yai and Thong Nai Pan Noi, as well as one in the centre of Thong Nai Pan Noi village. They have trips most day and you can book the day before by visiting one of there shops. Book early the day before to guarantee a place on the boat.
Thong Nai Pan is a Great Place to Stay
Thong Nai Pan is in the North East of Koh Phangan. There are two bays: Thong Nai Pan Noi and Thong Nai Pan Yai. Thong Nai Pan Noi has the more expensive hotels. Thong Nai Pan Yai has the more affordable bungalows and hotel rooms. Both beach are amongst the best on the island and very popular with travellers who want to stay in an unspoilt tropical paradise rather than a busy resort area.
