Any scuba divers out there? Khao Lak, Krabi or Phuket to base out of in January?

We are ending our 3 week trip to Thailand and Cambodia with 3-4 days scuba diving. While we are still debating between going on daytrips or a liveaboard, my big question right now is where to base out of? I like the idea of being in Khao Lak- it's not quite too busy and looks really nice. But is it TOO quiet? We are 40-somethings who are not really party animals but enjoy some measure of nightlife.

I was looking at staying at the Similana in Khao Lak- $80 for a beachfront treehouse. I have absolutely no idea where to stay if we decide Phuket or Krabi!

Any thoughts?

Thanks- I'll check it out. I've read so many great things about so many different places- Phi Phi Islands, Similans, it's enough to make one's head spin! I'm sure they all have their strong points...
