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!

Big Blue is a great place to stay and learn diving, with many friendly instructors and a warm atmosphere and good accomodation this is the place you should choose when learning to dive, on koh Tao.

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.

Just do it

So professional and friendly staff makes everyone feel comfortable becoming a very enjoyable and relaxing environment. Diving stuff is in a very good condition and they all take care nicely of it. My instructor, Minty, despite of being British, he was LOVELY! hehehe ;-)

I totally recommend big Blue in Koh Tao... Wonderful experience!

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.

Great Environment, Great Instructors

I had a great time at Big Blue. It was a great place to stay, everyone was very friendly and helpful, and I thoroughly enjoyed my instructors. Not only were my 2 instructors fantastic, but the instructors we were constantly surrounded by were quite entertaining as well. I had a great experience at Big Blue Diving and I'm so glad I chose to do my training through them.

Fantastic experience

I did both my Open water and Advanced and it was fantastic. I was a little nervous at first, but our instructor (Tim) was very helpful and calmed our nerves. He's a great instructor, with a lot of experience and it really helps your confidence. It was an amazing experience, extremely safe and I will definitely dive with Big Blue in the future :D.
