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!

best.

Even though there are a hundred new places I would love to go and dive, I am 100% going back to Big Blue - nothing beats the people you dive with and the experience of living on the beach meeting new people every day!

Gone corporate, vibe is gone

We were five people who had booked two rooms, one non-diver. Last minute my girlfriend, who dived, wanted to come along. I was supposed to stay with the non-diver but now I of course wanted a private room for me and my girlfriend. Even though Big Blue had spare rooms we were not allowed to rent it because a non-diver would stay in it by her self, even though the other five of us were diving and taking certificates. She was given the finger, big blue couldn't give us three rooms for the six of us even when five of us were diving. We had to send our non-diving friend away by her self to find a room somewhere else. This was after two days of exhausting travelling including the rough boattrip to koh tao where a lot of people puked.

The Big Blue staff might be smiling but they don't give a shit about you or your friend(s) if they're not diving. The relaxed service minded layed back "we fix"-mentality is gone, it's all about the money now.



I wrote a complaint to big blue. I got to speak with the manager. He said his staff was right to send my friend away but when I explained that six people of whom five were diving should be able to rent three rooms and choose our selves which of us would stays in which room, he said that he now understood, that I was right and that it was a shame we were leaving now. I did not get a refund even though they ruined the vacation for me and my friend. I was angry with them the whole week.



Big blue get a second star for f***ing us with a smile :)



Never ever Corporate Big Blue Diving ever again.

The vibe is gone. What happened with the cool "all about the diving" and chilling experience I got 2010. Wiped away by the cynical wave of capitalism.



Yours Sincerely,

Robert Westling
