stay away from this school

I had a really bad experience with this school. My english level is far from being perfect but is not bad at all. I lived and worked around europe and never had a problem with it. The teacher I had was from england and had a REALLY strong accent, sometimes really hard to understand, more even when he was using plenty of slang all the time. He never made the slightest efort on making himself a little more understable, and not only that, he got angry if I didn't understand him the first time. But this was not the worst part. On our freaking first dive, the very first dive in my life with all that comes along with that, doubts, fears, etc before doing it he asked me to follow some steps to make the buoyancy test, so we were already on the water with all the equipment. I made something wrong, not in the order he expected and started shouting at me really angry 'what are you doing? what the hell are you doing? did I ask you to do that?' making me to feel really bad and stressed, just before going on my very first dive. Its funny because in the book they gave us to study it says really clear to absolute never do something like that, apart from the common sense of course.
ps. in their page they say that you get a free t-shirt with their courses but when I asked for mine they said that they dont do it anymore

Great school, even better staff And The best momories

My highlight in Thailand ! The week I spent in big blue ! The staff is great fun and allways funny and in for a joke. The time really flys during your training . Thanks to Ant ( the Welsh one ) I had one of the best experiences so far on my world trip. And I even consider doing my dive master training over there next year.

Thanks you big blue for the great time ✌️

Team Jaqui

Hello Divers and thos who wants to become one,
I keep it short: go to Big Blue Diving Koh Tao and try to get Jaqui as your diving teacher!
She is a Ex-Teacher and this makes makes a great difference when you want to learn diving. She know how to treat students :)
Apart from that she knows where the best spots are while you dive and you will not miss anything as a newbee.

Open Water Scuba Cert

It was a pleasure diving with Big Blue! They were professional and made it fun and easy. You will feel very confident by the end of the course. Our instructor was sure to point out cool fish and the videographers are spectacular. Classes consist of six students per instructor and I recommend taking the class with a few friends! Even if you take the course alone, as I did, you are certain to make good friends and have a blast. I hope to return in the future for the advanced diving course. Thanks again Andreas!

Great experience !

To improve the service :
Smaller group (3-4 students) not 5-6
More flexibility in free accommodation (private room) instead of dorm

First time was better.

Been to Big Blue twice. And the second time wasn't as good as the first. Five masters seem to pretend they don't know the students after they finish the dive. It's like having their own club at the bar next door. No interaction at all. Anyway, had a great time again.

Unforgettable experience and amazing people!

I spent 5 days in September at Big Blue and I wish I never had to leave! We started with the SSI Open Water course with Matt as our instructor (who is incredible!). Matt was a great teacher and a great motivator, and also gave me huge amounts of confidence in the water as I was petrified. All of the dive sights were absolutely beautiful, and the overall experience was irreplaceable. We enjoyed it so much that we continued by doing 2 dives (deep sea and shipwreck) that counts towards our advanced diving qualifications.

The only reason I left was because I had a flight booked back to the UK! So if I had more time, I wouldn't have left for quite some time. All of the staff at Big Blue are outstanding, everyone is so welcoming and down to earth.

Honestly, I would highly recommend Big Blue to anyone considering to dive on Koh Tao. The sights are breathtaking, staff are fabulous, and the price is just the cherry on the top.

Thank you to everyone at Big Blue who made my experience an unforgettable one, I'll be back!

Professional and fun

I did the open water course at Big Blue and am very happy with my choice. Boz was my instructor and I couldn't have made a better choice.
