TDI Side mount

Just completed the big blue tech side mount course. Absolutely loved it. Changed what I thought I knew about diving. Such a great feeling of balance and achievement once I got the hang of it. Richard Devanney presented the course in aN easy to follow way. If you are even thinking about it, do it.

Pretty awesome

I did my basic and open water certification with Scotty. Chip also joined us for basic. They were both awesome, answered all the groups questions and generally felt like the Mom and dad on our little scuba adventure. I highly reccomend Big Blue for new divers. Staying on site made everything easy.

Great but rushed

The diving was a lot fun and the instructor Lilly and G were great. The course felt rushed for something that is potenially dangerous. It is like cramming for a test you might pass test but you don't retain anything.

It was money well spent though as the diving was fun and accomodations were nice. I will be back to do my advanced diver with them and will try to bring some friends along.

Big Blue, Big Fun

Really enjoyed my time at Big Blue. Liam was great fun and made sure we had the best experience possible. The dives were great, as was the overall atmosphere of the resort. Good times!

Openwater + Advanced

I did my open water and advanced with Big Blue Diving in Koh Tao.
They are closely located to the beach with restaurant, bar, pool, training center and accommodation. Simple accommodation is provided for free for each day you dive with them.

Incredible experience

We had an absolutely amazing experience at Big Blue. Ant was our dive leader and he was extremely knowledgeable and made us feel very comfortable in the water. I was very nervous about diving for the first time but Ant made me feel completely safe and ready to jump in. In fact, our experience was so incredible that we decided to go on to get our advanced certification right after our open water certification. Couldn't have asked for a better experience or a better teacher.

Big Blue Diving Ticks Every Box

Fantastic dive instructors, great atmosphere at the dive centre a real community seems to thrive there. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. The basic accommodation was more than adequate, additionally it was free whilst i was completing my courses, comfortable beds, wifi, good showers ...

The diving itself was out of this world, we were blessed with great visibility and saw some pretty spectacular stuff.
In regard to the teaching i completed both my open water and advanced open water i feel i was taught very well ! Felt incredibly comfortable in the water and confident in the technicalities of the equipment.

Would defiantly recommend Big Blue Diving to anyone

Best experience ever

I spent 7 days in Koh Tao getting my Open Water and Advanced adventurer certification and must say best decision I ever made was to do this at Big Blue. I was travelling on my own and Everyone is so friendly and welcoming.... My instructor Oli was fab. What i loved though is the size of the groups. A lot of other diving companies take you out in large groups, but with Big Blue you are with a handful of people which I preferred as I think with big groups you wouldn'the get the one on one with anything you found difficult and helped to overcome.
I cannot recommend this place enough to go diving with you'do be stupid to go anywhere else

Absolutely phenomenal and unforgettable experience

I don't normally do reviews but for BB and Mama G I really wanted to take my time and write my very first one. First, I'll talk about the actual diving school. Big blue just has an amazing vibe and friendly atmosphere that keeps you from going elsewhere. All of the staff there are very friendly and helpful, and they are quite fun to interact with. All of their diving equipments and boats are in excellent condition and kept in a very organized and clean manner that shows professionalism. This indicates that they know exactly what they are doing. The school is able to teach all 3 styles to accommodate everyone's different learning method but I do recommend doing SSI for basic because the teaching method for it is much more flexible and it's cheaper than PADI! The visibility here is absolutely amazing and crystal clear. Whether it's sunny or raining, I guarantee you will have the best time (you're getting in the water anyways!) My friend and I did our basic with Mama Irish G and that was the highlight of the whole diving experience! We were so glad that we had her as our diving instructor as she was just full of energy all the time, super friendly, super approachable, super knowledgeable (as she did more than 10,000 dives!) and most of all her teaching style was very much fun and learning friendly. I'll never forget some of the acronyms that she taught us. We came to Ko Tao thinking we were only going to do basic but she got us hooked and did our advance as well with Luke. He was also an amazing instructor. If we had more time we would have stayed and do our dive master with Irish G without a second thought. Everything just worked out so well and that made up to be the most amazing experience I have ever had. I'm sitting here reviewing in Vietnam wanting to go back and dive with them again as Mama G as my dive master instructor. I wouldn't want to try any other dive schools but this one. It's really hard not to go on and on and talk amazing things about this place and my instructors but if you are ever lucky to get either Irish G or Luke as your instructor, I have nothing more to say than you are guaranteed an amazing time and an unforgettable experience! Thanks Mama G! :)

Best plan ever for my vacations

I never planned to dive, but when I arrived in Thailand I received a lot of advices to go for a Open Water Diving training and everyone just recomended Big Blue, so I went there.
And I have had very good time with them.
Scott was my instructor for Open Water and conviced me to stay there and do the Advanced Adventurer.
Erin took me for incredible divings and I loved everything.
Very thanks to Scott and Erin and all Big Blue staff, all of them very friendly and funny.
I hope I can back there in my next vacations.

Go Big Blue!

I took the open water and advanced courses at Big Blue, and I loved it! Ernesto and Rebecca were very fun and informative instructors, and I hope to return to Koh Tao in the future. I can definitely see how people get sucked into the diving lifestyle in such a beautiful place, and I plan to make diving part of many future vacations. Thanks so much for turning me into a confident diver and giving me such an amazing new hobby! :)
