An immerging experience

The open water diver course at big blue was a great experience. The instructors are skilled and a lot of fun. They make you feel like youre part of a family while your at big blue. You have your own equipment for three days and they learn you how to use it and take care of it. The guides are comforting underwater (also give u extra attention if you need it, and i did) and guide u through amazing divesites. So...... Go with big blue!

Big Blue Diving rocks!

I had a diving course with Big Blue Diving, under instructor Jacqui. I always had a fear of closed space, so diving seemed so daunting to me. It was even more terrifying when I learned that I had to take off my mask under water! I couldn't be more grateful having Jacqui to guide along the way. She patiently taught me to remain calm, even though my nose is under water. (It took me more than 3 trials to finally finish the mask-off task)

Now that I'm a licensed open water diver, I cannot wait to go back to Koh Tao and take advance class with Big Blue!

P.S. Oh and the staffs in the hotel are really nice!

Excellent

I had an awesome experience diving with big blue. My instructor Tim and assistant Nicole were very experienced and helpful with my learning. They were friends instead of instructors by the end. Thanks again for the great few days!!

Professional. Safe. Fun. High quality boats.

Came to Big Blue to do my Advanced Open Water and some fun dives. Fantastic! Very professional operation. Only 4 plus instructor on our AOW. Only 4 divers and 2 DMs and me and 1 DM on fun dives. Boats are some of the best on Koh Tao: purpose built and plenty of covered space up top for dive briefings, relaxing etc. Great dive sites. Lots to see. Beautiful. Instructors have a great reputation for encouraging tentative/anxious newbie divers. Variety of good accommodation available as well.

Great School and amazing instructors, but terrible accommodation

Had a great time at Big Blue, with their excellent location and friendly staff. Will highly recommend the school to anyone, however the hotel i stayed at, was across the road from Big Blue of a side road, and this place however I cannot recommend to anyone. The bathroom had no real shower, and I found a band aid left in the bathroom, by the previous occupant. During my 5 night stay, my room was never cleaned once, and with the surprise left in the bathroom, I have my doubts as to when the last cleaning was done. I can live with low quality, but low cleanliness I cannot. My recommendation therefore would be to take the course at Big Blue, but to arrange your own accommodation.

Great!

Felt safe and had loads of fun! 4 people in the group so I felt comfortable, lots of other divers going down from the boat too. Drinks and snacks on the boat was a bonus! Diver leaders are all very friendly too.

Awesome!

The course was amazing - Petra was the best instructor I've had. She was patient, explained everything really well and took us on some really amazing dives. The facilities at Big Blue were great too.

Great course, Phil is awesome

Phil was a great dive instructor, always made you feel safe underwater, Great sense of humor, and very knowledgeable. I did the PADI open water and did an advanced open water with him as well. Ask for Phil!

Friendly and positive atmosphere

We enjoyed Big Blue a lot, friendly atmosphere, professional dive masters and very positive staff all around, nice location on the beach! The food in the restaurant was tasty and at a good price level. The dive boats were excellent. The toilets were in need of a makeover though!!! We are thankful for Carly and Mats tip to go to Kao Lak/ Phuket and join a "Live a board" for four days, it was amazing!!! We saw big Mantas during several dives and everything during the trip was great!!!

Great fun - great people - great experience

I've had the best time learning how to dive at Big Blue Koh Tao. The people are SO nice and professional. The best dive was at Chumphon Pinnacle. I'll be back for sure!

Neil was the man

Highly recommended! Neil was a knowledgeable and fun instructor even though the other staff give him a hard time for being a grump.
