Padang Bai is definitely not just a place to catch a ferry theres actually some very worthwhile diving there as well. I hadn't been diving in warm water for over 2 years so i decided to do a quick refresher with the guys in Gecko.Wasn't too worried about my skills or how to dive just more about getting my weights right for cocktail diving. walked into Geko and they seemed to be running a well organised dive shop. Good gear good staff nice atmosphere. they had me out on the boat in no time. the guys had my gear set up and even put my fins on! Now I'm definitely not used to that.
This isn't a critique as such because I had explained that I was really just doing the refresher to get my buoyancy nailed down but perhaps if someone rocks up to do a refresher you should ask them if they want to go through how to assemble their gear.
I knocked a star off?- no buddy check. Harsh yeah but theres no option to knock half a star off and not doing a buddy check on a refresher sets a bad tone for what turned out to be an otherwise excellent experience.
