Best week of diving ever!

If I had the vacation time I’d be back at big blue in a heart beat. What was supposed to be 3 days turned into a week and even then I didn’t want to leave. Loved everything about it and wish I could go back. And we saw a whale shark so that topped the whole trip off.

Great atmosphere, experienced divers

When I first arrived at Big Blue it seemed as if everyone had already known each other for years. The atmosphere there was amazing and the people that I have met were some of the fondest friends I have made in half a year of traveling. I had such a great time diving and felt at home immediately. I would recommend Big Blue to everyone who is looking for a place with great people who like a drink and have a passion for diving (and a party now and then). The beds are absolutely awful though, expect to come home with a great tan and a broken back ;)

Best diving instructor ever!

I can't thank enough the whole team but especially Ernesto who truly hook us into diving! I am now travelling the world searching for new diving spots but it was there in Koh Tao that I realised how much I love the sea and its creatures!

A door to a new world

I did my OW and AA course with Big Blue and it was the best decision I could have taken. Not only because diving is amazing, but the enviroment inside the school and among the team is incredible.

Great experience! High professionalism and lot of fun!

Beginning of September I had the chance to make my first diving with Sonia, a great diving master. Although it was the first time I felt like I was a veteran thanks to the tranquility and confidence that Sonia was able to instill in me in only a couple of hour of lesson before the diving session. Definitely highly suggested!
No need to say anything about the location: absolutely amazing!

superb place to learn to dive and/or do a bunch more diving!

I got my scuba license at Big Blue and then stuck around to do another 2-day/higher level certification because it was so much fun and the instructor (Simon) was so great. Can't recommend this place highly enough, hope to make it back real soon!

Love of water

I was absolutely terrified of the ocean until I arrived at Big Blue, Ooh Tao. Where my instructor changed my fear of open water into a deep passion for the ocean.

Best and friendiset dice centre

I learned to dive (open water and advanced) with Big Blue 2 years ago and felt it was a wonderful and safe company. The guys were fun and welcoming . My friends who are very experienced divers wanted to try thailand so I suggested Big Blue. We had the most amazing 9 days. We completed 20 dives including a night dive. Staff were amazing. In fact so much we've booked to go again in March 2019

Best diving school in Koh Tao

Funny, safe and very serious organization, I did open course and I found flexibility to best arrange my needs, and I received very good advices from our instructor Mark.
Location and structures are in my opinion the best in the island

What an unforgettable experience

My partner and I knew we wanted to dive and we heard Koh Tao was a great place to learn. After lots of research and chats with a few companies we decided to go for Big Blue. We believe they had an excellent balance of professionalism and friendliness. Anyone we spoke with from the office staff, people at reception, any staff in the cafe and of course our wonderful instructor Phil, were all very knowledgeable and helpful. The actual diving experience was amazing, both my partner and i had different reservations and fears to over come but our instructor was patient and knew exactly how to help us. We had such a great experience we decided to book on to our advanced course straight away after. The whole area had a great vibe and we easily made lots of friends. We traveled for 8 months in different countries but our diving experience with Big Blue was easily one of our top moments.

Fear

I was really nervous about doing the course, every aspect. I found it terrifying breathing under water and the open water also made me feel overwhelmed but the instructor Andy really helped not only did I pass the course but I think I actually did well and feel confident with everything he tought me. I'm very happy I chose Big Blue Diving I'd recommend to anyone

excellent experience! Best bang for your buck!

We stayed at Big Blue for two weeks getting certified! It was inexpensive and the experience was absolutely amazing! Our instructor, Luke was very knowledgeable and an excellent teacher! My ONLY complaint isn't even with the diving experience but with the extremely unpleasant and unprofessional restaurant manager. Tall, scraggly, rat tail hair cut, jacked up teeth and poor business sense. We stayed at the establishment for two weeks usually eating at least one mean everyday and getting coffee every morning and tipping as I would in the US and this guy decides to come to the room and start screaming at me and caused a huge scene because I didn't pay $.50 for some cheese on a sandwich... Having spent money to get two certifications for two people and renting a room for an additional week AND buying food and drinks everyday you would think that a slice of cheese is trivial, but this guy wanted to fight me over it... Needless to say, I walked the 30 minutes to town for the rest of my stay to get my food elsewhere. Other than this, I loved my time at Big Blue and look forward to going back someday!

Amazing place!

Big Blue Diving, Koh Tao is a great place. Took my OW and AA certificate there. Classes are small, instructors are super friendly and the whole environment is just cozy and a good place to meet friends. Once you've acquired your certificate, they also offer all sorts of side activities such as night dives, etc. Would definitely recommend

Great Bag Packers place to scuba dive !

You have a choice of various ways to stay there, from the comfy A/C rooms down to the dorms with other bag backers.

Various choices of courses as well with great instructors and nice places to dive.

Did I mention that it's often crowded with nice people to hang out around beers at night ?

Fantastic place

Starting with the location, I was blown away when I arrived. It’s simply beautiful. It’s close to the village, between the palm trees and their beach is amazing.
Staff is professional and fun and the prices really competitive.

Big Blue made me fall in love with diving!

August 2016 I signed up to big blue to try some diving as my partner was really keen to learn. A few days later I was hooked and when our time was up in Thailand we moved on to other countries and planned the rest of our travels around where we could dive more!
Patient teaching from Phil made you feel safe at all times. The team were lovely and the atmosphere is so relaxed and friendly. Would love to go back!
