Thanks for the great time Big Blue, and thanks Tom for being an awesome instructor. I've been telling everyone I know about my experiences at Big Blue and told them if they want to dive Koh Tao, to do it with you guys.

Fantastic experience

I did the open water and advanced courses with Big Blue and absolutely loved it. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. A fab group of people to dive with and a great instructor (Steve-o). We couldn't have asked for a better instructor! What a guy! He kept us calm and kept us working well as a group underwater. As a result there weren't any problems. We saw some amazing creatures, especially on the deep dive at Chumporn pinnacle. I am so glad we chose to do our courses with Big Blue and I have recommended to everyone along our travels.



Thanks Big Blue!!

Diving with Big Blue - Why not?

You are going to Koh Tao?

I strongly recommend diving with Big Blue. A good place to stay, even if you're travelling alone as an backpacker. The atmosphere is amazing. All The staff/diving instructors are friendly and very helpful. Many people from all over the world are there. It's easy there to make new friends.

Also the diving is amazing. By the way: Thank you "Big Ant", it was a pleasure to got teached by you!

Good Times!

We had so much fun and we definitely wanna come back to Koh Tao and to Big Blue! Jules was a great teacher and time was running so fast that we were stuck for nearly two weeks!

Friendly and professional

I really enjoyed my divings there, it really was a wonderful place. I stayed in the free dorm which was really simple but all I needed was just a bed and a shower so it was perfect for me. They had good prices and you just pay at the end depending on the dives that you did, so you can decide every day if you want to dive or not. The staff were really professional, helpful, funny and really friendly. Also, I did a free cleaning dive, which consisted in collecting garbage in the see and it was really fun! I would definitely come back in Big Blue Diving the next time I go to Thailand again!

Safety First

Every time I tell someone I got scuba certified in Thailand I get asked if it was safe. Yep, totally fine. The staff were responsible, and clear and thorough with their explanations. The gear was properly maintained. Nothing sketchy. (It was fun too!)

THE TIME OF MY LIFE!

I can not speak higher of my experience at Big Blue!



I travelled to Koh Tao on my own after a week in Koh Samui with friends. The ease of being collected at the pier, following by a friendly hello & intro to the resort. The greatest thing about Big Blue and travelling alone is that from Day 01 of your course you are set up with at least 15 new friends who you will continue to have the most inspiring and straight out FUN with while you learn to dive!



I had booked a private room, but did actually spend a night in the free share accommodation - which I have no complaints about!



My instructor was Neil, he was amazing. Someone so funny, but so trusting - a great core strength of all the instructors.



Just do it - that is all I can tell you! But be warned.... you may never leave Koh Tao.

Amazing experience with a top instructor

Diving with Big Blue was one of the best decisions I made whilst travelling in Thailand. I was doing my advanced open water course with Matt Waters who was a top guy and a top instructor. The diving was great, everyone at the dive centre was helpful and the atmosphere around the centre was good. Will definitely visit again.

Great staff!

I was really pleased with our dive masters, the people at the front desk seemed really stressed though and it was hard to ask questions since it just felt like annoying them. The diving was really good although on my last dive I got a broken tank that leaked. My dive master handled it really well. What was bad though is that the tank wasn't removed and my dive buddy almost went down with the broken tank on his next dive.



Love the location and the hotel!

great experience

was a great experience diving with u, experienced und motivated diving instructors gave me a good save feeling.

i was a bit surprised, that when i compare the diving times on the diving cards u gave us with the actually dining times we did, we stayed a lot more time in the water than we should have according to the dive planer. maybe u should explain that to ure customers.



thanks for a great time,



micha

fantastic experience

I did the combo of open and advanced diving in 5/6days. Excellent value for money! I had Denja and Molly as instructors, both very experienced, enthusiastic divers and passionate about conservation. Absolutely brilliant experience and such a friendly and supportive atmosphere! Great team working there! I cannot recommend them highly enough! :-)
