Big Blue was recommended to us from quite a few people. We completed out Advanced Adventurer course with them and had a great time. We'd recommend Big Blue to others going to Koh Tao.

Best thing ive done in my whole trip

Doing my open water course with big blue was the most amazing thing I'd done in my 6months of travelling... until I did my advanced course also with big blue two days later!!! Unreal instructors Ant and Sophia... great accomodation and lovely atmosphere... not to mention a beautifully stunning island. Would thoroughly recommend big blue, I had such a great week and cant wait to go back :)

The dive school had a great vibe and our instructor, Tim, was excellent. I really felt comfortable user the water after the course. The dive boats and site could be a little crowded but overall it was a great experience.

fear of the sea

From a young age I had a fear of the sea, however thanks to the instructors at big blue with the right amount humour mixed with sound instruction I passed my open water course, and enjoyed it so much stayed on to complete the advanced divers course.

A really great time

We really enjoyed our time at Koh Tao. Diving with Big Blue is/was one of the best things we did during our vacation. We are looking forward to see everybody there next year. Big Blue Diving is the best diving center we`ve ever been to. We can recommend to dive with Big Blue especially for beginners because you get a really good training there.

Yours,

Verena

Good spot

I have a really good time doing the open water course, but the dorms were really bad, with a non working aircon and really bad bathroom. Also you didnt send me my certification to my home address so i dont have my SSI card.

Response from Big Blue Diving, Koh Tao Mar 18, 2014

Hi, Sorry to read you havent got your card yet. Please tell me your name & your certifying Instructor & I will get n to that straight away for you.
I understand your comment about the dorms. Part of the reason we offer them for FREE.
Sorry you didnt like it tho, but I do understand.
Yours,

Put me off diving for life

I had some trouble in the first session in the swimming pool, the instructor was not concerned about this and still made me go in the sea. I struggled again and instead of being helped I was told to get back on the boat and I couldn't complete the course. The onstructors were so rude, didn't even bother explain what I had done wrong or how to improve. Completely knocked my confidence. Plus the accommodation was the worst we have stayed in SE Asia. There are plenty better schools on Koh Tao who will care about their students and aren't as the instructor quoted 'a people factory' only after your money.

Response from Big Blue Diving, Koh Tao Mar 18, 2014

Hi Stacey, My name is Jim & I am the Manger & Owner of Big Blue & therefore take a lot of pride & responsibility in the way my shop is run. Reading your review has very much distressed me & I would like to chase it up with the Instructor. The way you were treated is most definitely not the way we want our students to be feeling. I would very much like to take action on the Instructor Instructors who were involved in your training so would appreciate it if you could tell me who I need to address to ensure this behaviour from my employees does not happen again.
I very much appreciate the time you have taken to point out the failings in my business & hope that you can help me just a little further by letting me know who to talk with.
Yours, very disappointed, Jim Donaldson

Really great environment for training!

I did my open water certification here in February, 2014, and I am so glad that I did! The class size was pretty small (there were 6 of us) so the days went pretty quickly and you got the attention you needed. The instructors were really patient and fun. I was worried about doing my certification because I was only on the island for a few days and wanted to be able to enjoy it, but I didn't feel like the course took away from any enjoyment of this wonderful island! I definitely recommend it and I would do it all over again if I was going back. They do a nice video on the last day of your training course as well which is a nice buy if you have a few people to split the cost.

Awesome!

Great accomodation and friendly staff. I was instructed by Luke for my Open Water and Advanced Open Water courses who was great. Both courses had both more than 5 people on and it felt like I had loads of one on one time.



Big Blue 1 and 2 are no more than 5 minutes walk from each other and the bars at both schools are great!
