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!

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

Hilarious, Highly Experienced Instructor

I am going to focus this review on my instructor as I think that's probably the most important thing when you're taking your first breaths underwater.
The experience and good humour of my instructor made the process much easier and fun than I could have imagined. All members of staff at Big Blue were friendly and good-humoured. A wonderful place to stay and learn to dive. Thanks

Great place to learn

Good location, good instructors, maybe the old accomodation is not so good (Big Blue 1), good restaurant and really close to the beach

loved it

Fun instructors, great atmosphere , good accomodation and the best restaurant. Had a lovely time here! I planned on doing only my open water but I loved the diving, the place and the crew so much that I stayed longer to also do my advanced. I would definitely recommend this place! (In fact, I already did...!)

Great diving and a place to make new friends

I did two courses (First Aid and Cpr, Stress and Rescue) and some fun diving with Big Blue. I felt I got the knowledge I wanted from the courses and the instructors were knowledgeable. The practical exercises were great but the theoretical parts were a bit pushed.

I did most of my fun diving with divemaster Stephen, a funny and enthusiastic guy with lots of experience. He did the best briefings ever and I would definitely dive with him again anytime!

I made some new friends while diving with Big Blue, they had a great beach bar (it was closing/changing location just as I was leaving though) where many divers would hang out and have some food or beer together after diving or in the evening.

Would recommend anyone to dive with Big Blue and they would be my first choice if I return to Koh Tao for more diving in the future.

Ps. I would also recommend their dive shop where Big Blue divers get a discount!

Excellent diving

Big Blue on Koh Tao was great. Me and my wife loved the open water course, the atmosphere and the people on Koh Tao and Big Blue. Our instructor Eirin was great and we learned a lot while taking the course. We will definitely come back next year to Koh Tao to take the Advanced course.

Friendly, human, easy to get started!

Big Blue instructors were very nice! The groups are just small enough to bee able to have fun and one on one time with your instructor every once in a while!

Amazing experience!

I never snorkelled, scuba dived nor done any water sports before this and I have motion sickness, sea sickness and fear of water. I arrived to Koh Tao on a ferry from Chumphon without any reservations. I found the Big Blue truck and it took me straight to the resort no hassles at all. The staff at the reception were extremely friendly, I was briefed and explained in detail about the course and was asked to fill in the forms. I enrolled for the Open Water course along with accommodation in the dorm. The evening started off with an orientation class followed by 1 day introduction to the gear in swimming pool and 2 days diving at the sea. Our instructor Tristan helped me greatly in getting comfortable with water, gear, techniques, a lot of doubts and above all gave me a lot of confidence and strength. There were at least a couple of times underwater I was giving up due an ear pain, some kind of fear of water and terrible sea sickness but he helped me get past them. After completing the course I did a few fun dives and I started enjoying it more. Then, I signed up for Advanced Open Water and I was lucky to have the same instructor. I had amazing fun learning more techniques, understanding and getting myself accustomed to diving. I think by then the Scuba bug had bitten me and I was learning something new in every dive. My Dive Masters for fun dives Steven, Seanos and Kristen took attention to detail and showed the wonders of life underwater. I was really enjoying my routine of early morning dives, afternoon dives and chill by the bar and hit the bed early so much that, I extended my stay for another week. Extremely warm, kind- hearted and welcoming people at Big Blue every single person. Instructors, DMT's, DMs, reception staff, restaurant staff and great service. I met some lovely people during my stay at Big Blue and wish to go back and do my Dive Master there. Diving at Big Blue Koh Tao has been one of the best experiences of my life.
Just a few things I noticed which I wasn't too happy about was, the first day at the swimming pool. The pool was very dirty since there were too many in the pool. May be, it would have been better if we practiced our techniques in shallow water at the beach.
The housekeeping for the dorms could do a better job of cleaning the rooms and bathrooms every day.
Apart from that, I'm very happy. I thank Big Blue Koh Tao for such an amazing time. :)
