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,

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! :-)

Great training

This was one of the best experiences of my life. We got SSI training and it was great. The scuba diving staff was great and the package was amazing.

Pure fun

Visited for a week of diving on Koh Tao which included taking my open water course. Chose the SSI option. The course was run very well, groups of no more than 6. Mine included an instructor ('Steve-o' -ask for him, he's professional, has a great teaching manor and is a great laugh) and a DMT.



Dive sites were great (particularly Chumpon Pinnacle) lots to see, kit was well looked after and everything well organised. Also went on a day of fun dives after the course, Gretel (sorry if I've spelled that wrong) is a great DM if you're looking to fun dive.



Overall, good value, great week, and a great bunch of people. Highly recommend.

Rude and scam!

My friend and I stayed at bug blue for 5 days. We were told our room was 600 baht. Was a room up top with no air conditioning, but we stayed because we figured 600 baht between 2 people was pretty cheap. We were told that the amount of dives we did would get us half off our room for the equivalent amount of days. One morning I woke up very congested and had to go and cancel my dive. For the next 3 days we tried to book dives, and they were either full because a lot of staff wanted to go or the morning dives were too advanced it did not get switched up at all. So when we decided it was time to leave we were pretty shocked when what we had to pay was more than double what it should have been. They charged us both for the full dive that we could not go on. Not even a fee or anything just 2 full dives, we were not made aware of that. And they charged us 600 baht each for the room instead of 600 for the room in total. You can stay anywhere in koh Tao for under 800 baht with air conditioning so this was pretty shocking. The workers were very rude, condescending and judgemental. Not once did we feel welcome there or that we weren't being talked about. Extremely disappointed, to the point we were so annoyed we had to leave koh Tao, made us have a very jaded view to a beautiful island.

Great dive school!

We went after a full moon party and there were A LOT of people, but Big Blue did a great job making sure we all got the instruction we needed. Steve-O was great.

Highlight of my trip!

When I went to Thailand, my intention was not to get my scuba diving certificate, however I am so unbelievably happy that I chose to invest a couple extra dollars and days in Koh Tao to do so. Big Blue was an amazing company, and we're so glad we chose them. The accomodation included was great. Our instructor, Chloe (highly reccommend that you ask for her) was amazing. She was so patient with the people in my group when they got nervous, and completely made them feel comfortable in the water. The diving experience itself- something I'll never forget, and I now have a complete new bucket list- a lot having to do with places around the world that I can't wait to go dive. Thank you for an amazing experience!
