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.

Friendly, cheap, fun

We did the open water + advanced and slept there. It was real fun. Our instructor, Alex, gave us good advice. The boats are great, and one has cats living onboard. Gear was ok, except swimsuits that are a bit old. Diving places are fun, but overcrowded at times. Good place to start. After the course they made a film of the final dive, not cheap, but really professional.

Just great!

If you're looking for a diving school, catch big blue! No words can discribe how I loved diving there. I've never felt like that when I was home again....I'm still thinking about Koh Tao, Big Blue and all the great people arround.

Awesome experience

Doing our course with Big Blue diving was the best choice we could have made. I was scared of doing the course, I had tried once before, and had given up. But at Big blue, they take te time to teach you the theory in many different ways. Our instructor (Tim) was the best. Very professional and we felt safe with him. He took his time with us and made me not be afraid of diving. It was an amazing experience. We met awesome people, the food at big blue was very nice, accomodation was good, equipment and boat were good, we have nothing to complain. The experience we had with Big Blue diving, and most of all Tim, our instructor will probably be the reason why we will keep diving. And we will definatly go back to Ko Tao one day!

Amazing first diving experience!

I met some friends on the ferry from Koh Samui, who were also heading to KohTao, in hopes of learning to scuba dive at some point in their travels. We decided as a group that Big Blue was a good fit for us so we headed there straight from the ferry. Upon arrival we were greeted by Liam at the lobby. He would later become our instructor for our open water course and, since we had such a great experience and learned so much in the open water course from Liam, we decided to pursue the advanced adventurer course! What an amazing experience. Liam was very knowledgable and patient while instructing is through both courses. He possessed the skills and knowledge that helped us learn and explore the underwater world. All of the staff at the resort were kind and helpful, the dorms were clean and comfortable, and the restaurant food was delicious. I would highly recommend this dive school to anyone who wants to dive!

Best experience, Best place to do it!

Me and 3 friends originally came to do the padi course. We then chose to do the SSI and it was perfect!!!. We ended up staying and doing an advanced course a night dive and 2 fun dives! If you have booked an exit ticket out of koh tao you have made the wrong decision as you will want to stay!! We had thee best instructor ever! Steve! He made experience perfect, we felt 100% safe. I advise everyone to go!

Professional and friendly

A professional and welcoming place. Nice with free accommodation when you are diving with them. Although the free dormitory is not super nice. It was cleaned every day wich was good. I came to big Blue to do my open water and because of the good, nice and professional instructors I stayed for my advanced too. I was really nervous and scared about beeing under water when I first started my course but it was not a problem because the instructors helped me and showed us all the tips we needed for diving. I'm now in love with the water and will continue to do loads of diving!!
