getting around on koh tao

Is getting around Koh Tao easy? (are taxis and tuk tuks easily available?) Am thinking about staying at either Jamahkiri or Koh Tao Resort...but my dive centre at Sairee. Would it be a drag to go back and forth?

It would really - you can get open trucks (songthaews) but no cars or tuk tuks. Lots of people hire mopeds/scooters but they are not for me, risk of accident too high. There are dive shops on the beach that Ko Tao Resort is on - why not dive with one of them?

Jamahkiri - they will probably have arrangements with a dive shop under which the pick up and drop off from the villas would be included in the price you pay the dive shop. Worth enquiring directly with them.
