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.

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!

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