Inexperienced instructor

My instructor was very young and inexperienced. Skills in the pool were rushed and she had no patience for discomforts or fears once we were in the ocean. When I became nervous and panicked, her response was to become stern and short with me rather than encouraging and calm. Not a fun time. I suggest you go elsewhere or at least ask how long you instructor has been teaching.

amazing experience!

When travelling around Thailand I couldn't make my mind up whether or not to get my diving license. It was the best decision of my trip!! Amazing 3 days absolutely loved it. The instructors are incredible and will do anything to help you. Ian and Stevo are superb. Amazing company and the best on the island.

open water course

There is one thing i have to pillorying. You shoult clean your pool, because diving inside was one of the most disgusting things I have ever done. First I thought it would be a salt water pool with dangerous amount of chlorine. Than I understood that the pool was full with urine and thing I really don't want to know.

Nethertheless we had a great time, because of the Tom, our diving teacher.
He was really friendly and patient and he created a really good atmosphere.
We always felt safe with him, because he was really professional and helpful.

All in all it was great and i would do it again(maybe without the pool story it wouldn't be so funny ..:) )

Great way to become certified!

I arrived in Koh Tao with the aim to finally get certified in Diving. Upon arrival in Koh Tao you will see that there are many choices of schools available for learning to dive. I decided to go with Big Blue as they are the longest running diving organisation on the island and I figured that if they had lasted that long then they must be good.

They were indeed very good and all went well :) 3 days later and after a lot of fun dives, exercises and the exam I was certified :) The Instructor was great and really made me feel at ease. If I go back to Koh Tao I think I will take the advanced courses there. Also, Koh Tao is a beautiful place to get certified, the clear waters, sea life, and island itself is very much a great place for diving.

I recommend them 100%.

Great Team

Did a few dives wtih them and every instructor was really fun. Some dive sites were too crowded but that couldn't be helped I assume.

Big boat, awesome staff

I love my summer there. I did 10 fun dives with Jai, Johanna and Liam. They're awesome! and I like the location, friendly staff, professional dive masters. I'd definitely do it again with Big Blue :)

Big Blue Diving - My Fascinating Trip

Last August, I went to Koh Tao on my vacation, my friend, Nana suggest me to BigBlue. We both are the divers so we always find new place to dive. I like BigBlue because of the crew. They are friendly and helpful esp. my dive master. They are Jo, Jai and Liam who took care of us well. I have great experience there and I wish I will go back. However, I sometime surprised that they changed the destination in the morning and I'm not so pleased because they didn't inform me before so I miss the place that I want to dive for a couple places.

Respectable company, excellent equipment and boats, professional staff

I would recommend the Big Blue Team to friends. I had done some diving severeal years previously and was undertaking my dive refresher training. The instructor (Jesus I think) we had spoke excellent English (not his mother tongue) was really personable and warm whilst also maintaining high standards. The boats had been newly refurbished, equipment was in good working order and tuition professional. I enjoyed my day with Big Blue, thanks again.

Unforgettable experience!

We spent three incredible days on Koh Tao with the Big Blue guys and the whole experience was nothing short of amazing! We completed our open water certificate with Ant (who's a ledge) and we'd recommend it to anyone! We had one day of training in the pool and two days out diving in reefs around Koh Tao. If you have enough time you should try the advanced course, we wish we'd stayed longer to complete it!

Really nice

I took my diving class in Big Blue and all the staff were amazing!
I got the free dorms because I was taking the class and I have to admit, most of the room are great... exept mine!
The AC was not properly working but at least they managed to add new fans to the room.
On the last day, they also offered me to get another room!!

In sum, the staff is great and they are there to help you!

I recommend this hostel :)
Thanks

Nice and relaxed dive centre!

Good dive centre in Koh Tao!
We did our open water course at Big Blue Diving and got free accommodation in the hostel from Big Blue while doing the course. We preferred to have our own room but in the end this worked out fine as well! Just simple beds and be prepared, no warm shower after a dive! That was one small drawback but our experience there was really great.
The staff in the dive centre was really nice, we had a nice and relaxed instructor called Chris who taught us well. The dives were really cool and I would definitely advise the dive centre if you are a backpacker and want to go to a relaxed place.
