Amazing Dive School

I did both my open water and advanced open water with Big Blue. They were a very professional company when it came to diving. I always felt that I was receiving the best education possible and that my safety was always a top priority. The dive school seems to be like a big family with everyone working closely together.

Koh Tao is an amazing place to learn how to dive, the fish and marine life is unbelievable. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Big Blue!

they'rrrre grrrreat

Big Blue Diving company was really a great experience.

I had never been diving before, so i took the open water course.

My instructor was Ami, she was very knowledgeable and friendly.

The course consisted of one day in the classroom, one day in the pool getting used to the equipment, then one day in the ocean getting used to the equipment, and one final day where we were just able to dive "freely" with the group looking at all the coral and fish. Every step of the way Ami and Sofia were patient and helpful while introducing us to an amazing sport they had done countless times before. Koh Tao has some amazing dive sites and while the weather/visibility when i was there was not great, (10m) being my first time, i enjoyed it nonetheless. Apparently the group after us got to see a whale shark which would have been amazing. I would definitely recommend Big Blue Diving in Koh Tao to anyone whether its the first time or the 100th. I am planning on going back there to get my advanced dive license as soon as i am able to.

A great choice!

I loved my diving experience with Big Blue! The staff were incredibly friendly, fun and outgoing. The instructors that I had were also very patient and supportive with beginners and I always felt like I could ask for help if I needed to. The courses I have completed have definitely inspired me to continue diving around the world!!

Amazing

I was with a group of 5 and we all had an incredible time. Our instructor Matt was great, he knew how to have a laugh but was also very professional. He made sure we all had the best possible experience with big blue! I felt safe safe and confident in what I was doing at all times thanks to Matt. The accommodation was nice and there was always a good atmosphere in the bars. I would highly recommend big blue to everyone who wants to dive!

Excellent dive instruction

Our open water course with big blue was excellent. Our instructors Chris and Ryan were very knowledgable as well as fun to hang out with. The classroom instruction as well as the in water instruction were run with extreme efficiency. It was neat to be able to finish our course and then immediately go on a fun dive. The restaurant at big blue made super yummy food and it was great that they were open early enough to grab breakfast before early morning dives. Our accommodations were very clean and comfortable my only complaint being that they were a bit far from everything else. I didn't mind the walking but it did become a problem if you forgot something in your room. My only complaint was the ferry shuttle. They left with enough time so if everything went ok you would just make it. People were late for our shuttle and we almost didn't make the ferry which would have be a real pain I the neck. In all I would highly recommend big blue and their accomadations

My best time in Thailand

I did the open water course and it was a great experience. The instructor was very experienced and very professional. I felt safe the whole time.

The idea of making a movie at the end is brilliant, and all this for reasonable money.

The only minus point is that they are far too many people. It is a real factory and in my opinion the diving sites are over-exploited.

Awesome Place!

I only had time for a 'discover scuba' dive… wish I'd had the time to stay and get certified. Big Blue was awesome… staff were super cool and helpful, resort was nice, a range of lodging options to choose from, great food, cool bar atmosphere, etc. I'd recommend Big Blue to anyone looking for a great place to learn to dive!

I had an incredible time at Big Blue. I wasn't even planning on diving and just stumbled upon it by accident. The staff at Big Blue were all so welcoming and friendly. I ended spending 2 weeks at Big Blue, doing my open water, advanced and fun diving. The instructors are amazing. I did all my dives with Ernesto and would absolutely recommend him. His teaching methods allow you to feel so comfortable in the water and before you know it you are swimming with the fishies! Definitely dive at Big Blue if you have the opportunity!

Amazing and so much fun!

I arrived at big blue diving to be greeted by Petra Bauer. Straight away I knew I was in the right place! Petra was so friendly and efficient with checking us in and finding out exactly what we wanted to do regarding dives!

Over the next week I completed my open water course followed by the advanced course (because it was so addictive!), both led by Petra who was very thorough, patient and made me feel completely confident underwater! Even at 30metres!

I loved every second of my diving experience here at big blue! I will be returning in the future for sure! You are all so friendly and helpful, I can't thank you enough (especially Petra haha!) for giving me an amazing time on koh Tao! Hope to see you soon!
