Cameradie , learn and play

If traveling from uk travel go via Bankok , grab a train then coach to boat terminal .
Expect a paradise setting and trust me your senses will still get bursts of surpassed surprises time after time both below the waterline and above .
The staff are helpful and are good company which enables you to socially get along with there team and your own diving team members who you will probably meet for the first time.
Bonus for you thinking of diving is simply this In London to get upto advanced diver it will cost you £700 -800 plus travel . As I remember the flights, accom and course at big blue is roughly the same price if not cheaper . food and booze is cheaper. eating in house has to be done it's highly affordable too . locals are great . The ladyboys there are immense . I nearly got caught out by one but was fortunate enough that he had some ugly lady mates with abig Adam's apples standing next to him lol

Great dive training, Fun staff

I got my Advanced Certification here, and felt that the staff truly cared about making sure we were well-trained and knew what we were doing. I am confident in the skills that I learned. While we were there, we went on a number of dives with a variety of different guides with unique styles. I appreciated the briefings before each dive. The week we were there, the weather was unusually windy, so the visibility was very poor. The rides to the dive sites were treacherous at times, but it was an adventure. I loved the dive boats. The equipment was in good shape. I would recommend Big Blue to anyone looking to take a diving course or to get in a couple fun dives while on Koh Tao.

Take your Diving Certification with Big Blue Diving at Koh Tao

Big Blue Diving at Koh Tao is a good center with the experienced instructors and a perfect location close to the beach.
Instructor 70537 Kari Lee Wride is an excelent instructor.

Generally a good course however with too high pace. Theory should be separated in time from the practical exercises and open sea dives.

Great diving school, amazing diving sites for an awesome price! You start out in a pool, this already is really fun, but it is also essential for your basic diving skills.

Best Dive experience ever :)

It was our first visit in Thailand and we (me and my daughter) traveled without plan through the country.
KohTao was the first Island were we arrived and we have really enjoyed this small Island.
Sice we met by chance the Big Blue Diving Team, we were realy happy to be there.
We decided to make a dive course and I think we have had one of our best experience ever.
Our Teacher From Switzerland was the Best and we enjoyed the whole week which we we spent at Big Blue Diving, the team was unforgettable for me and my Daughter. We will come back for shure.

Just amazing!

I could experience one of my greatest adventures with the Big Blue Team. We had an amazing time, a funny dive-master and unforgettable dives!
The only thing I can criticize is the food, you almost have to eat there (because you don't have enough time to go somewhere else) and it is quite expensive and I had tastier things elsewhere.
But for the rest I am super happy that I did it, we had nice roommates and just the most amazing time you can imagine.

Neil is the best!

Neil, our instructor, gave us such a wonderful diving experience. He has so much experience in diving and he's able to explain everything clearly with great detail to help us understand. He's also very technical so he helped us understand how the rules and the practices make sense. Every time we went into the water, we all felt really safe following him listening to everything he told us. At the end, we were all very comfortable with diving after finishing the courses.

All the staff at Big Blue were all very friendly too. I'm pretty sure I'll come back and dive here again.

Amazing experience

I have always had a deep fear of water after an accident on a lake a few years ago. The training process at Big Blue made me feel extremely confident and comfortable. Liam Kelly was an exceptional instructor. His fun demeanor complemented his strict guidelines for safety. The experience was amazing, and left me wanting to dive more in the future. Con: the old dorms are extremely hot and uncomfortable. I highly recommend spending the little extra and staying in the new dorm rooms.
