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!

Excellent instructors & a lot of fun

Best experience of my life. Really nice people there and sure a lot of fun. I can recommend this diving school to everyone. I was kind of afraid to do it in the beginning but then I did the full scuba course.. I would definitely go for diving with big blue again!

Great spot on an amazing island, with fun yet responsible and helpful staff. Great dive sites with plenty of variety. Very impressed at how stress free the diving was and how the team was willing to accommodate requests for fun-dive sites.

When can I come back?

Big blue is the best company I've dived with. I was doing mostly fun dives, but I had a refresher course before I started - the teaching style is thorough but very calm. I really felt relaxed and was reassured that no, I hadn't forgotten everything in the years since I last dived! All the dive leaders I met were excellent - the perfect mix of professional and fun. The briefings were very detailed and I never felt that there was anything that they missed out but at the same time it didn't feel like a lecture, just like I was diving with friends. They are superhuman at spotting small stuff like shrimp and nudibranch too!

The bar and restaurant are great, really sociable and really really good pizzas.

I struggle to find any criticism - the original dorm room I was put in had a bit of a mould situation but they took note of it and as soon as I mentioned it they immediately moved me up the beach to the alternative dorms at big blue 2 which are among the best dorms I've stayed in.

Oh, and I saw a whale shark on my third dive which doesn't hurt either!

Friendly, easy atmosphere

I had a great experience doing the Open Water Diving course with Bug Blue. They were very accommodating and I always felt comfortable and at ease! The instructors are knowledgable and best of all fun! Would love to go there again.
