Is Koh Mook and/or Krabi local islands wort the dive for experiance diver?Hi there,
wife and I (+ kid) consider take a 2 week trip to Thailand (direct flight to Krabi).
As I hold 400+ dives, but haven't really dive since whale shark encounter at Sail Rock north of Koh Phangan in 2009, I know wish to get peoples view on 1 week at Kog Mook and diving of the local islands there?
And, secondly we consider staying north of Ao Nang/Krabi for second week, and hence how is the local islands there for diving?
Dont wanna be away to much from wife and kid, hence, local island!
Else I am considering staying on Koh Lanta and go speed boat to Hin Daeng / Hin Muang for 2 days then!
So Option I guess is:
1). Ao Nang/KRabi, 2 days diving at local islands + 1 week at Koh Mook around 3 days diving,
2). Koh Lanta, 2 days of speed boat to Hin Daeng / Hin Muang + 2-3 days diving at Koh Mook.
Last, is there no good diving close to Koh Lanta for starting out agian?

8I have dived most of the best known sites in Indonesia and also quite a few of the lesser known sites. So many divesites in Indonesia that a claim 'the diving in Thailand just can't compare to Indonesia' is simply ludicrous. I'll give you one thing though, the best Indonesian sites (where you have not dived BTW) are better than the best Thailand sites (I have dives nearly everywhere in Thailand).
But the main thing with your post, and you're diverting attention now, is your claim that marine life is very sparse in Krabi, is simply nonsense.

9If , as you say,the best dive sites in Indonesia are better than the best dive sites in Thailand- you've more less agreed
with my point. You still haven't said which Indonesian sites you've dived which makes one wonder if you've ever gotten away from your Thai-based dive operation and dived Indonesia... you won't know what you're missing until you do...
