OUTSTANDING!

I completed my open water diving certificate and was blown away, not only by the professionalism of Big Blue, but by how great the value-for-money was. I'm already planning my next trip back to Koh Tao to complete my advanced course and couldn't imagine diving with anyone else but Big Blue. My instructor Antony Edgley was very professional and very knowledgeable of the marine life we observed. I recommend to anybody interested in diving Thailand to go with Big Blue.

Great experience doing my Open Water Diver Course

Was made to feel like family from the moment I stepped onto the resort.

Erik and Guy were my instructors. Small group of 5 made learning enjoyable and they spent extra time with those who needed it.
I was unable to complete dives 3&4 with my class. Erik came in on his day off and we dove together, allowing me to complete the course the following day.
He went above and beyond.

The resort is within walking distance of everything you should need in town.
The restaurant serves amazing food with a huge selection, and the bar always has people just hanging out. Great for a solo traveller like myself.

Stayed in a single room all to myself (800 baht). Nothing spectacular but everything you need.
Can't wait to return one day.

owd & adv. With Guy & Handsome-Erik

Everything was awesome with big blue! The accommodation, the courses, the guys&girls at big blue. Especially our dive instructors Guy & Erik. !!! Thanks guys! We have recommended big blue to everyone we have met during our travels.

We are going for a fun dive tomorrow at koh rong samloem @ Cambodia. Hope it's as fun as it was with Guy & Erik. Don't think so, but I'll keep my fingers crossed.

10/10 would go again!

Gorgeous Dive Sites & Knowledgeable, Friendly Instructors

I was lucky enough to have Guy as my instructor for my Open Water course and first time diving. Not only is he hilarious, he made sure we all felt safe and comfortable diving. He was incredibly knowledgeable and took us down to some amazing sites around Koh Tao. The other staff members at Big Blue Diving were clearly like a family and made sure all guests were having a great time. I can easily see how you could come to Big Blue to dive and end up staying!

Best by far!

I can say with complete conviction that Big Blue was the best diving resort and company I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. They were the first and remain the best. I even noticed when diving with other companies around the world that the training and preparation they gave me far out-shot that of the others as divers with double my dives were not nearly as prepared and fluent in the skills needed to have a safe, fun dive with others.
Matt (Waters) was a great instructor and because a friend! We all always felt safe and well instructed while having so much fun in the process. The whole team was always helpful of all of our needs no matter how specialized.
I can't wait to come experience it again!!!

Definitely recommend

I loved my stay here. A really nice resort on the beach front. I did the Try Dive course and unfortunately didn't get to finish the dive as I wasn't feeling well but the instructors were all really friendly and good at their jobs. I had a great time and was sad to leave.

During my trip in Thailand, I had never thought about doing a diving course. But really, no regrets! The experience was so exotic, different! The crew was awesome, the structure is great!

An Awesome Adventure!

Had an amazing time at the end of January, 2015 doing my open water course followed by the advanced adventurer course at Big Blue! Petra was an amazing instructor. Would recommend Big Blue to anyone looking to dive wheather it's their first time or their 100th! This place has a great vibe, you feel welcomed right away, and it's great for meeting other travellers! Would highly suggest to anyone doing their open water that they continue to do their advanced part of the course it was my favourite part and well worth it!!

Easy professional diving for every level and every budget

Big Blue has a professional dive center with ambitioned friendly dive masters and instructors.
The rental equipment is in decent condition.
They have the biggest boats, that can go to the dive sites further out even in bad weather.
They offer different accommodation with discounts for divers - something for everybody.
The dive sites are of course very busy, the corals are not in best condition and the marine life is over all rather poor - same as the visibility in autumn and winter... but its one of the cheapest diving in the world.
