Awesome time

My boyfriend and me spent six days with Big Blue Diving and did our Open Water Diver and our Advanced Adventurer. It was a lot of fun. Our instructors Amy and Molly were really helpful, explained everything well and we had a lot of fun under water exploring the under water world :)

Highlight was seeing a turtle during our nightdive and playing with a cracked egg at a depth of 28m :)

Excellent staff good fun

I Did the whole diving after full moon party thing on Koh Tao and chose big blue based on other good reviews. Now I'm writing my own.I stayed in free dorms (solo traveller) which was fine; met some decent people and it was free from bed bug and cockroaches which I heard about some places (its also free so don't expect the Ritz). Stella was my teacher who was really relaxed and taught us theory and practical easy. Equipment was decent and upkept. Boats I went on were good with complementary biscuits, tea, coffee, and fruit. Dive sites were mostly good but due to large number of dive schools corals were not the brightest but big blue does have a conservation scheme to try do their part. They produce a DVD for you if you do the open water license thing its a bit pricey but best way to capture the memory. I left this DVD behind by accident and Wayne was good enough to post it out to my home in England, London which is super awesome and appreciated.

Excellent

I had a great experience diving with Big Blue. With no experience of doing anything like scuba diving before I genuinely didn't think I would be ready to dive to 18 metres in 3 days. However, the course allowed me to gain confidence in my ability over time and I absolutely loved it! Will definitely be back again and would recommend to anyone to go with this diving school. We had Ant as our instructor, lovely guy and a great teacher.

just promises

I really liked it at first, but then they told me the just work with SSI and its the best option and I had to complain about not having a spanish instructor.

Everyone there is SSI so when we were doing our PADI course they just ignored us and didn't want to cooperate at all.

So, just to be clear, if you offer PADI, be willing to give PADI courses. Even if that isn't the best profit for you. If you can't do that, then don't offer it.



above all we had a really good time because our spanish instructor (not from your staff) was awesome and Toh (the salesman from the boat) was the only one willing to help us.

Everyone else was just behaving like inmature people not saying even hello (Mainly instructors and Dive masters).

If this get to the owner of Big Blue, you just have to review your staff

Nice staff, right on the beach

I liked the fact that they provide cheap accomodations right at the dive shop place. They have excellent room and dive packages. They have a big boat to take you to the dive sites. The shop is close to many services and one does not have to go very far to cover the basic needs. The island itself as much to offer and has recently been listed as the 10th most beautiful island in the world. The diving itself is unfortunately not ranked in the world's top ten. Phuket, Koh, Pi Pi and the Similans are still the top in Thailand.

A great experience at Big Blue

My boyfriend and I recently visited Koh Tao and had an excellent experience with Big Blue Diving. From the minute we arrived we could feel the positive energy and enthusiasm towards diving, and it was contagious! We stayed in the AC dorm which was comfortable, away from the noise and very affordable- free when diving! Jordan did his Open Water Cert. while I did a couple fun dives. Both fun dives were enjoyable and Jordan was hooked after completing the Open Water so we both decided to go ahead with the Advanced Open Water. The course was very educational and the 5 dives were some of the best I have done- especially Chumphon Pinnacle. Our instructors were great and the whole experience was very memorable. After spending a few days at Big Blue you begin to feel like family.

Awesome!

Our plan was to stay 5 days at koh tao. After the first dive we realized it was going to be epic! Got Rich as our instructor, great knowledge and alot of entusiasm. Ended up staying 12 days, did the advanced adventurer. Learned alot and now im planning to continue diving. Have nothing bad to say about big blue at all. Great staff, great bar, good equipment. Im pretty sure i'll be back in a year or two!

PS. Ask for Rich.



Best regards, Albin
