Dive Center / Liveaboard recommendation for new divers?

I got my Open Water cert in July 2014 and just recently finished my 15th dive in Bali. Diving in Crystal Bay was a bit challenging as my 10th dive. I definitely want to do more dives in calmer sea... I heard Koh Tao is relatively inexpensive and a good place to get AOW, but I would prefer somewhere with less parties...

Any recommendation for dive center / dive package in Khao Lak?

Thank you.

p.s. and I would love to see Whale sharks in Thailand!

Hi

Try Thailand Dive and Sail at http://thailanddiveandsail.com/ and Octavia Dive Center at http://www.oktaviadivecenter.com/

Friends from both companies here in Khao Lak have told me that there have been whale sharks sighted on several trips this season.

You can also try http://www.bigbluedivingkhaolak.com/ . Ive been out with them a few times as well as lots of friends of mine and weve always found them to be a good quality dive center.
