Great all around

Was a first timer and was able to learn to scuba very quickly with the help of my instructors nick for the beginner course and denja for the advanced course. Great restaurant and the accommodations were discounted with the course.

Wonderful Teachers, Beautiful Ocean!

The Big Blue Diving school was amazing!
The only reason I gave the four stars is because I thought the accommodations could be improved. We were in the shared dorms and found that they were very hot and not much of the ocean breeze made it past the new building. Adding a couple more fans to these rooms would make a huge difference.
The actual course for open water and advanced were amazing. My husband and I felt so comfortable with our instructor (Steve-o). We really appreciated his balanced teaching style- humor, confidence, kindness, and knowledge. We also appreciated the fact that he took time to get to know us personally. You could truly tell he loves his job and is passionate about diving.
Thank you Big Blue for introducing us to a new beautiful part of this creation! The ocean is a beautiful place and we look forward to seeing more of it and working to protect it.

Fantastic experience!

I had a wonderful time diving with Big Blue - it's a real dive camp feel where everyone lives and breathes diving, and the atmosphere is fab! Clean dorms, cool staff, thorough training and the bar is a great place for food and a couple of drinks before sleep & repeat! Loved it so much I stayed for the Advanced course... Then came back after the Koh Phangan Full Moon Party for a night dive! Had to drag myself away before I signed up for the Rescue course or I'd never leave!! Would absolutely recommended this place.

It is really a wonderful experience

I really enjoy this diving journey, cause Andy and everyone are all so kind and and gave us a full instruct about everything when we are diving. My girlfriend and I are only asian on that boat, so at first I was a little nervous, but when I get on the boat, everyone is so good and we have a really relax surrounding feeling. Thank you so much for giving us this great experience!

Had such a great time that I had to come back

In the last week of September I took de Open Water course at Big Blue. We did 4 dives and had practice morning in the pool. Unfortunately it's mandatory to watch a couple of videos and do some homework, but other than that I had a great time. Lily was our instructor and she did a great job! While having a lot of fun with us she was at the same time a great instructor and made sure everyone was comfortable and knew what they were doing. Two days after finishing the Open Water course I came back to Koh Tao and Big Blue to do the Advanced Adventurer course as well. This time Sonia was our instructor and she was equally good fun and committed to making sure we were having a great time. Although the advanced course consisted of 5 more dives and several skills, such as navigation and a night dive, I did not really feel like I learnt that much, except for gaining more experience. It would be great to work a bit more on breathing and swimming techniques. Nevertheless, I would highly recommend Big Blue and might be back in the future!

All super!

We have made 2 courses at Big Blue. It has worked out everything. We were only two of us in the courses. The hotel and its restaurant are also recommended.

We had a great time!

I went there with my boyfriend in September. We had the most amazing time there and completed the Advanced Adventurer, even though at first we wanted only to do the Open Water. Staff is very nice and capable, our instructor was Liam. I can only recommend him.
