Great way to get started

I've always wanted to learn how to dive, and BBD seemed like a fairly decent option. The accommodation was great for the price, and the schedule easy for just about anyone. Our instructor had the patience of a saint, when our group took several hours longer than necessary in the pool trying to get things right, and managed to work the schedule so we got everything done on the day despite it.

And when it came to going into the water, our odd numbered group was evened out by the trainee instructor who was partnered with me - while the 3 dives we actually went on were great. The first perfect for getting used to being in the water, while the other 2 a reward for going through the tests.

My only issue was the video that was offered at the end of the course. I would have happily bought it had our group featured in it - however our camerawoman was allocated to 2 groups, and spent the majority of her time with the others. As such it didn't seem worth getting.

All in all loved my time at BBD, and would have happily stayed to get the full diving license had it been possible, but would happily return to do the second part without a second thought.

Great Place to Learn to Dive

Big Blue is one of the best places to get your open water and advanced. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and work to ensure you have a strong grasp of diving fundamentals. This place is very biased towards SSI, not a bad thing but do your own research about which certification you want before you get there.

I had a really nice time at big blue diving. However, it is a very big company with many people working and diving there so if you are looking for something personal and small, don't go. If you are looking for fun, good instructors, nice boats and nice diving, just go.

Remarkable Dive School

I ha the best time at Big Blue Diving. Learning my SSI Open Water and then doing the cleanup dive was wicked. I never thought i'd be able to do any sort of diving as i'm not a strong swimmer and have a slight fear of swimming in the ocean. Instead I learnt so much and made some really wonderful friends, but most importantly was able to complete all the dives and tasks. I had a fantastic time and Matt was a great instructor. I'll be coming back to do my Advanced for sure.

Great place for a beginner diver!

I couldn't recommend a better school to come and learn to dive in Koh Toa. The staff and instructors are super friendly and enthusiastic about what they do! That combined with great facilities and awesome reef surrounding the island, a diving course here is an awesome addition to a trip in Thailand.

Great and Helpful Staff

The clinching factor about Big Blue was the staff and instructors, they were instrumental to the learning process and facilitated it to be as easy and constructive as possible.



However, the slight issue with Big Blue was that they constantly seemed to have taken on a bit more than they can chew, as I had some friends who didn't get a proper wetsuit due to massive amounts of learners and divers.

Great place to relax and dive!

I stayed here longer than i originally planned because i loved the atmosphere so much. My brother ended up getting his Open Water Certification, and went on his first dive in Koh Tao with Big Blue Diving. To this day he says it was his favorite place we visited by far. Thank you Big Blue for making our time spent here unforgetable!
