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.
