Great Place

Absolutely loved doing my dive course here. Nick the instructor was amazing, never felt rushed or unsafe. Accomodation was basic and a little overpriced on non diving days but fine. Only downside was video cost being graded by how many people purchased it. No one in my group did so I felt like I was being punished for their decision as it became very êxpensive for me.

Big... Some call it The Factory

Bin Blue is really big... You can feel like a number. All happens too quick and not really professionally. They almost encourage you not to read the book. They focus on the minimum. I guess it really is more about quantity than quality.

A great introduction to the world below...

Stayed with my girlfriend at Big Blue at Koh Tao for 5 days, where I got my open Water certificate and my girlfriend tagged along for some fun dives. Andy Campbell was our instructor and we were both very happy with the instruction we got from him, his attention to detail and safety on the dives etc. Big Blue in general is a fine place to stay when getting your certificate, as you'll only meet other divers and people don't stay up all night partying, but instead tend to go to bed early in order to be fresh for tomorrow's dives. All in all a great experience - we highly recommend Big Blue as a place to go for fun diving or training/certification.

Really great experience

My stay at big blue was wonderful. I took open water and advanced and both were paced perfectly. My instructor was Scotty and I never felt like he was rushing me into anything I was unsure about. Everyone from instructors to housekeepers were so nice! The accommodation was great as well- it was good to hang out with other travelers and divers in the evenings.

Andy is amazing, diving is the best!

I decided to try scuba with some friends while living in Thailand and I AM SO HAPPY I DID. Andy was an amazing instructor and we had such a wonderful time learning how to breathe underwater. We had an amazing time and the videographer was also wonderful - making a really great video of our last dives!

The actual Big Blue operation is good, but definitely not the best. We were there in the middle of the hottest season and they were super stingy about air conditioning, charging an obscene amount for the remote. This was really disappointing because while scuba diving, everyone knows you should be well rested and with the exorbitant price to add a/c to the already expensive scuba diving was a bit annoying and unfortunate.

Overall, we really enjoyed our time, just wish Big Blue included a/c!

Fun, interesting and professional! I will defiantly be coming back. Wonderful bunch of people who really make you feel welcome and all are extremely dedicated and passionate. I only planed on doing the open water diving but quickly signed up for the advanced diving which was well worth it. Dive Locations are beautiful and full of life. COME TO BIG BLUE !!!!

Get your dive on at Big Blue!

My first expierence with diving and because of Big Blue Diving Koh Tao, I'm hooked! We were looking for a diving school on KohTao and visited serveral of them to gain more information. Our third school to visit was Big Blue Diving and the information we got was fantastic. Steven pointed out to us what to look for.

We got back at Big Blue Diving and signed up. We started the same evening with the introduction made our first step to our first dive.

The next day we got to meet our instructor: Big Ant, the man, the Welsh legend and an amazingly funny and friendly guy. He guided us from the pool into the ocean and it was an experience I didn't want to miss.

Thanks Big Blue!
