The most amazing experience ever!

I signed up to the SSI Open Water course after reading reviews & being recommended, I wasn’t sorry! It was the most exciting experience I’ve ever had & I felt so safe.

My instructor, Graeme was extremely patient, informative & efficient. I had some issues with getting out of the water with my BC & tank, it’s pretty heavy for a first timer, and a petite one at that lol. It wasn’t an issue. Graeme & the other instructors immediately helped me & as I was pretty embarrassed, they also reassured me. On next few dives, with my new found confidence & strength & under Graeme’s watchful eye, I had no problems at all.

I enjoyed my OW so much, myself & the other 3 in my group all signed up to the Advanced Course straight away which was even more fantastic. Amazing dives, good visibility & I felt completely safe.

The equipment is well maintained & all the staff in the office to the restaurant to the instructors are professional & friendly. It’s a really great vibe.

I loved my experience so much, I’m due to fly back in a couple of weeks to continue diving with Big Blue & hopefully take my diving up to the next level!

Superb

My husband and I decided on a whim to get certified. We are in our early 50s. A bit of a late start, but we did it.
Graeme was fantastic. He never made me feel older. I had difficulty clearing and removing my mask; he was super patient and kind. A very professional experience! Choose BLUE.

Great Diving School

Great diving school on Koh Tao. After a friend's recommendation we chose Big Blue to do our Open water course and never regretted it :)
We had the luck to be teached by 2 diving instructor's, Julie and Yam in a marvellous German-Englisch mix :D
They thrilled us so hard, that we are now always looking for the possibility of diving when planning holidays

Amazing, friendly staff, great environment

Sonia Scott taught us well and had such a laugh along the way, this was one of my favourite experiences in my travels thanks to the team, Sonia took her time with me when I was taking ages to equalize and that made a huge difference for me. The food here is also amazing and a good price.

Perfect, perfect, perfect!!!

We chose for our Open Water Diver Course Big Blue because they have a pool for the first lessons (which was really great as I was quite anxiuos) and because they have the SSI version instead of PADI. SSI is more flexible, they accomodate to your personal needs and speed. In fact it was the best decision we could have made. Really just go there and you will be happy! The staff is amazing, they have a restaurant and accomodation included (which we didnt use, so cant say anything about that). Its 10 directly at the beach.

#1 Scubadiving School In Koh Tao

If you are planning to get Open Water or Advanced Scuba Certificate I recommend you go talk to the awesome instructors at Big Blue Koh Tao. Like most people on the island, overwhelmed with all the choices, I walked around checking out diving schools. I was making a pretty serious choice learning how to scuba dive. I wanted an environment I felt safe and comfortable with. As soon as I walked into Big Blue I knew this would be the place I was going to get certified. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The staff were amazing, the instructors were knowledgeable and fun and exciting. It was a very friendly environment and I learned so much. My Instructor was Sonia Scott and I knew before I finished my Open Water Course that I wanted to complete my Advanced and I requested for her to be my instructor. I stayed on Koh Tao for 2 weeks getting Advanced Adventurer Certified and I have over 20 dives now. I can not wait to go back to Big Blue. Check it out for yourself!

Tolle Ausbildung

Ich habe den open water und advanced adventurer gemacht. Die instructors waren extrem freundlich und man hat sich zu keiner Zeit unsicher gefühlt. Alles wurde mehrmals erklärt in gut verständlichen Englisch. Ich werde definitiv wieder kommen und weitere Lizenzen machen! Bigblue wird seinem Ruf in allen Punkten gerecht!

Extremely Professional and Great Experience

I was just certified by Big Blue Diving this past month, and I am so glad I did it with them. They were extremely professional and made me feel super safe while learning all the necessary information in a short amount of time. I'd highly recommend doing your certification at Big Blue because of the setting and the great instructors!

Friendly and professional dive school

I'd only been scuba diving once and was really looking forward to heading to Thailand to learn to dive! Big Blue was recommended to me by a family friend and what a great recommendation it was.
The website was informative and all contact was super helpful and professional.
Once I finally made it to Koh Tao everything was great. The Open Water course led by Ant gave me the confidence to dive and feel like I know what I'm doing. I then undertook the Advanced course led by Yam who was also an excellent teacher.
I just wish I could have stayed longer and done more than 9 dives!
