Khao Lak is probably the most popular base for diving in the Andaman Sea in and around Khao Lak, including the Similan Islands, Koh Tachai, the Surin Islands, Richelieu Rock and especially with liveaboard up to Myanmar.

There are many Dive Centres throughout Khao Lak, some with offices in the bigger resorts. See this link for a list of some khaolak-info.net/directory/divecentres.htm

Also http://thailanddiveandsail.com/ and https://www.google.co.th/search?q=Dive+Centres+in+Khao+Lak&gws_rd=cr,ssl&ei=2UK2VJ3ZJcSMuATu44D4BQ

Also look at Things to Do in the green menu bar at the top of the forum listing page.

As suggested above, if you are in Khao Lak you are very close to Thailand's best dives sites - the Similan islands. There are some decent sites accessible from Khao Lak on daytrips but it would be a shame to be so close to the Similans and not take a few days liveaboard there.

Most dive centres will offer learner courses. Just call in when you are in Khao Lak.
