Incredible experience at Big Blue!

I dove with Rudy Ricour and had an incredible time! What a fantastic instructor; patient and a good teacher, in addition to adding a load of fun to the course. I did both the intro course and the advanced course at Big Blue with Rudy and couldn't recommend the experience more. If you're looking to dive in Koh Tao, Big Blue is the place to be! And if you're lucky you might land on the best instructor they have, Rudy!!

Amazing company to learn to dive with

Always felt safe, amazing crew working there
Up to date on animal sightings
Would definitely do more courses with them in the future if in Thailand

Good diving school, nice atmosphere

I liked the diving school a lot, the location is perfect and I would love to go back there. The trainers are all very nice and it‘s a funny, and friendly atmosphere between the trainers and the students.
The only thing I did not like that much was the first day which we spent in the pool. There are too many people in the pool at once and we spent the whole day in there with almost no breaks in between...
But the dives were great and the food is really good!
They trainers really care about you and that the equipment and everything is safe.
I also love that they try to make people aware of the environmental issues and how to help.
Would go there again!

Best experience ever!

I did my Open Water Training in August 2017, and absolutely loved it! I caught the ferry to Koh Tao from Koh Phangan after the full moon party and was met but a lovely lady on the ferry promoting big blue. She was really helpful and informative and helped everyone who wanted to join get transport with them to the Big Blue Resort. Once we arrived, we settled in our air con rooms and signed all of our paperwork. The theory was a bit tedious that night, but I guess that’s what you’d have to do at any five school. The next day we did our first dives in the pool and it was amazing! Our instructor Annemarie was so nice and such a bubbly person, it made our group become really good friends! The diving in Koh Tao was amazing, we saw so many fish, turtles and stingrays. I loved it so much, I stayed a couple more days to do my Advanced Adventure. The whole experience was amazing, I’m really looking forward to going back again in the future.

Excellent

I made my Open Water with an other center. I liked it but I was scared. I wanted to continue so I came to Big Blue Diving and I had there my own instructor. Thanks to him, my scare leave. I’m no instructor. Thanks Big Blue Diving

Awesome Experiences

The crew at Big Blue are excellent instructors who make their students feel very comfortable and are great fun to be around. Diving with BB was a wonderful experience, I look forward to going back and I recommend them to people heading that way often.

Felt like a little community

Did our open water Padi, the course was easy, and our instructor was very knowledgable.
The school had good resources, it never felt like we were missing anything in the experience.

Good dive school but not the friendliest

I went to big blue to do my rescue and dive master course. But moved on to another dive school after the rescue as I found the people who worked there very loud and unfriendly. I was staying there for a week and sat in the bar alone each night, the instructors there where all in a group together. I found the showers quite dirty and i myself was very ill whilst staying there in a private room in the hostel along with others in the dorms. The information I gained was 5star and my rescue course was intense and taught me a lot but I much preferred the other dive schools where they really want to integrate with you and help build your confidence in diving. I felt belittled with less experience than others so I wouldn’t go there myself. But people with more confidence would maybe fit in better.

Great diving, great staff

We've visited Big Blue twice, first doing a discover scuba dive and then for advanced certification. We were impressed by everyone we met, dive masters, instructors, boat crew, office staff, other guests. The vibe is laid back and relaxed, but diving and instruction are professional and of high standards. The "resort" is self-contained with housing, restaurant, and bar on site, but lots of local amenities are just a short walk away.
Big Blue is comfortable, fun, and affordable, but is not a luxury resort (thank goodness!). We wear out Big Blue tee-shirts proudly and recommend it whenever we can.
