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.

Good experience

I really enjoyed the divin course. We had a great group and Ant our instructor was awesome. He made me feel really calm and safe. We also had Helena with us as DMT and she was awesome.
The only things I would say weren't the best was the dorm we stayed in and the way the video gets sold to the group. It was an awesome video but ruined by the experience of trying to bargain a price for it at the end.

Incredible Place

We looked at a couple of dive schools when me and my girlfriend got to Koh Tao and thought they looked alright. We walked into Big Blue and decided almost instantly that this was where we wanted to stay. The accommodation is excellent, the people are amazing and the vibe is spot on. I came to do my open water, maybe my advanced and left after doing my rescue course. I had the best time learning despite a few early starts but i would recommend to all. Oli was my instructor for the 9 days I was training and he was brilliant. From chatting to other people it sounds like all the instructors are spot on. If you're in any doubt about where to dive, go to Big Blue, I couldn't recommend them highly enough. If and when I go back to Koh Tao I'll be straight back at Big Blue

Best diving school ever :)

Big Blue Diving School is really a great and truly a professional diving school.
Our instructor Ant was really the best teacher we could have. Because of him it was quite easy to learn everything and the whole experience was soooo much fun!!! :) Not once did I felt affraid or panicked, because they all make you feel safe and in good hands. After the course I really wanted to go back and do the Advance course, but sadly didn't have time. If I ever go back to Thailand I am surely gonna go dive with them again.

Love Big Blue and Koh Tao

My girlfriend and I went to Koh Tao to get our open water diving certs. We had Neil as our instructor and he was awesome! Very calm and relaxed and it definitely helps with the class. He took his time and made sure everyone was comfortable and ready for the next skill. We liked it so much we came back after Full moon to get our Advanced cert and we were lucky enough to get Neil again. Koh Tao has some beautiful dive sites and if you get the chance to go to Sail rock, please do not hesitate.

Thank you some much Neil and Big Blue.. We have been recommending you guys to everyone!
