Simply put, there is no Koh Tao for me without Big Blue Diving.
There are many dive schools to choose from but from you know Big Blue is on point when it gets so many of its customers through WOM. That is why I chose to come here since it has been highly recommended by so many others. I was not disappointed! While Big Blue is one of the bigger schools, the instruction is still personal. Groups will never be more than six people to one instructor. As for me, I was quite lucky and had a stellar group of six as well as two awesome instructors!
Now my two instructors were Tim & Luke, who were complements to each other and assisted tremendously in our group's development as divers. Tim, our main group instructor, is to the point when it comes to dive instruction and while he may be blunt, it pushed us as a group to work harder. Luke, our second instructor, is extremely patient and gave us extra encouragement by sharing loads of tips and personal stories with us.
Together, Tim & Luke put a lot of time and effort into making us better divers. Personally, I struggled with one of the skills in the course and they both worked with me individually to make sure I got it and was confident with it. They were great at noticing how we as individuals could improve and it was clear that their main goal was to make us good and more importantly safe divers! These two were a DYNAMIC DUO and it only speaks well on the quality at Big Blue.
If you choose to dive with Big Blue, I am sure you will love your time with them as much as I did. :) Thank you Big Blue, Tim, & Luke!
