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.

Great fun AND professional education

I had a great time during my ssi open water course! We were a group of 6 an had two great dive masters. The equipment was good to very good and the accomodation was also good :) the only negative point to mention was the crowded boat but everything was well organised!

Not good

May be good for people who need to do their courses, but not for fun divers! Messy transport to boat and divemasters whose air consumption was poor! Bedbugs in the dorm bed! Cheap is not always the best way!

Time of my life

I loved every second of my stay. I already recommended Big Blue to my friends that are going to Koh Tao. I loved the people, the atmosphere, the bar, the diving instructors - just everything! I want to go back, soon!

Very good diving instructors

I had a really good time at big blue.

The best thing were definitely the diving instructors.

It's easy to meet people there.

Good food.

Good rooms, but a little expensive though.

Loved it!

Loved every minute scuba diving at big blue. Made lots of new friends, instructors and travellers! Special mention to our instructor Nick who was awesome. Everyone I have spoken to feels the same way and I would definitely reccomend the experience to anyone considering it.

Thank you

a truly great experience

a great experience, i stayed for 7 days on koh tao, doing open water and advanced certs. the instructors i had close contact with (ants 1&2) were always engaging and fun, while remaining completely serious about teaching us the diving skills. i stayed on to try a night dive and found that their utilized completely different skills than my normal dives. i would have loved to do several more dives to practice and perfect buoyancy in these conditions

Best scuba diving I've done

I have been to several countries and done an introduction to scuba diving as I have never had the time to do my padi or been sure if it's for me. However after this experience I want to do my Padi for sure! The discover scuba was in a small group with a down to earth knowledgeable member of staff. They made me feel at ease and that was something I had not felt in my previous dives. I had really enjoyable time and just wished that I had more time and money to do my qualification. Hopefully I will be back

Amazing fun times

Came to big blue not knowing what to expect.



They really made a huge impression on me everything from their food to accommodation to friendly staff and instructors was above and beyond what I could have ever hoped for.



I will be coming back to continue my diving experience and will be recommending them to everyone I know that wants to try diving.
