Britney was awesome!

Our instructor Britney was really good, she helped me a lot. I was kind of afraid but she made me feel like I could do it and made me feel safe underwater. She was always so happy and nice to the whole group and kept the atmosphere good:).

The part that I wasn't really a fan of was the going on the boat: it was kind of chaotic to me. Maybe with less people it would be better.

Knowledgeble instructors

Pretty big school, but with multiple small groups 4-6 ppl when teaching. Courses seems to start each day. Instructors from a lot of different countries. Accomodation, location etc. was all good. Felt professional.

Excellent school excellent price

I went with big blue on the recommendation of a friend and I wasn't disappointed! Phil was a great teacher and I heard very good things about the other instructors from other people whilst I was there. As for the location - Koh Tao is a beautiful island and the water crystal clear, perfect for learning to dive. Highly recommend big blue. Ask for Phil ;).

An Amazing experience

Travelling around Thailand and the thing that scared me most was our pending scuba diving experience in Koh Tao. But from the moment we were on the ferry over, we felt so welcomed by all members of the Big Blue team. We completed the Open Water course and had such a good time that we couldn't possibly leave the island without doing the Advanced course. From not even being able to snorkel easily to diving through to 30m in the space of a week felt like a massive accomplishment. There really aren't words to describe the amazing feeling of diving, and I couldn't have asked for a better school to learn with. Our diving instructor Ernesto made me feel so at ease, explained things so simply, and really is a top guy! Had a great time and will recommend the school to everyone I know travelling to Thailand. Thanks!

Amazing

Best place to do your dive licence. If you can get Ellie she was amazing, and knew all her stuff extremely well.

Lotte is a perfect instructor"

This summer at BBD the Dutch instructor Lotte taught our two daughters diving. In three days they became qualified diver and had a perfect time!

Amazing experience!

Had an absolutely fantastic time diving in July! We had two instructors, Petra and Max, and both were great. I loved diving and I hope that one day I can come back and do some more diving at big blue!

Big Blue was great :-)

Big blue attracts a lot of young people that like to dive and have a party. Very good atmosphere and very kind instructors. My instructor was Amy from England and she was super sweet, patient and clear in her explanation. Good vibes all over. Maybe just one down side at this dive location. It is a very big diving school. It makes it a little less personal. The only person you really know is your own group and your own instructor. The rest doesn't really bother to say hi. Also, the instructors have regular parties in the evenings after diving and they don't really give you the feeling that you are welcome to join.

FUNtastic!

I had a great time with Big Blue and its divers.
The Instructor ( Steve ) was really funny and so the time just seemed to run, while I finished my course and did some more fun-dives.
The team was always helpful and friendly and we had nice parties in the evenings, so that I felt a bit like home there.
The dive spots are pretty cool and the instructors know how to make every dive an unforgettable adventure.

Sea-tacular!

For the price, the package, and the beautiful experience, big blue is the best choice! Accommodations are rough, but FREE, as long as you book ahead of time and at least 4 days. You get that small school feel with the perfect size dive groups and super experienced instructors, with the big school credibility. I had such an amazing time exploring the depths of the sea! Thanks Big Blue!

Amazing experience

Despite the fact that Big Blue is a really big company, the 2 instrutors I had for my open & advanced water were amazing and attentive to everyone ! I'll be back there for sure for my future diving lessons.
