I did my SSI Open water and Advanced with Big Blue, and couldn't have been happier. The staff were not only informative and helpful, but also friendly. The boats were comfortable, and the diving sites around Koh Tao are incredible. In the future I will go back to Big Blue when diving this area!

Amazing time at Big Blue

Completing my Open Water Diving Course with Big Blue was definitely a highlight of my travels and opened many doorways for me when travelling to other dive sights as I had the confidence and skills to enjoy dives elsewhere due to their excellent diving instructors.



I was travelling alone yet at Big Blue from the moment I arrived I was never alone. The staff are so friendly, welcoming and helpful. I turned up without a booking, had done some research beforehand and read reviews. Got a free Big Blue taxi which I found at the port on arrival which brought me straight to Big Blue. Arrived a little anxious about the diving however within minutes was signed up for my open water cert with a smile on my face and eagerness to start diving asap and had free accommodation for the nights I would be diving however ended up staying extra nights as I loved the place and people so much.



Matt Waters was my Instructor and definitely made the open water course an amazing experience. Matt knew I was nervous yet made the whole experience very easy for me and allowed me to gain confidence and experience at my own pace- his professional guidance and ability to teach the skills required to dive safely appeared to come naturally to him with lots of laughter thrown in- Never a dull moment when Matt was around :) I had a wonderful experience with my group and from diving in 4places around the world since can say Big Blue was the best when learning to diving, the equipment provided and from a social experience also.



I cannot recommend Big Blue highly enough and hope to return next yr to complete my Advanced Course.



Thanks for all the fun times and teaching me to laugh continuously under water while experience a whole new world :)

One of the best things I've done

I'm really glad I chose big blue because the instructors were so friendly and great and funny. Had never dived before but always wanted to, did my open water and my advanced here and have done more diving since I love it! I also recommended it to my friend who came here and would recommend it to many more (was recommended myself to big blue by Another friend!)

I would definitely return to big blue to do more diving, I'm thinking of coming back next year to do one of the Eco internships with big blue conservation.

Big blue is for sure a great place to learn to dive or do diving as it is fun, safe, friendly, exciting and amazing!

DMT review.

Big Blue has everything you would ever need from a beginer to a well seasoned diver. One of the bigest centers on Tao but still has that personal feal. With 4 boats going to your fave sight is not a problem and group sizes are always small. With instructors speaking all major languages makes doing your dive or course very easy. If you plan to do your DIVE MASTER like me with the no of boats they have and the number of highly qualified mentors. Doing it in the time scale you want will not be a problem. Not only do they do the normal stuff, if you wish they cover tec, free dive, everything for everyone. I have found them so helpfull friendly and wat's more profesional and fun! If your looking to come dive on Koh Tao I would recomened BIG BLUE with out a dought. My only warning is be VERY CAREFULL you may find it hard to leave. Andy Rice UK.

The best diving center on Koh Tao

Second time at Koh Tao, and like the first time we spend all our days with the most amazing diving center, Big Blue.

The diving, staff, food and accommodation are just all amazing. Big Blue offers all kind accommodation, but the once we fell in love with where there huts on the beach and the rooms in the heart of Big Blue, where your diving gear is just outside our door.

Big Blue feels like a diving camp – and we love the atmosphere.

Especially thanks to Darren, which we dived with both on our first and second visit, Phil, Nick and Steven for giving us some amazing dives.



Big Blue just has the most amazing diving crew, and that’s why we want to come back!



And we saw a WHALESHARK again! – Thanks guys!



See you next year!

fabulous experience from start to finish

I went to Big Blue back in June for my open water certification. Before even going, the staff were very helpful as I was making arrangements. They answered all my questions and helped set up my transit and lodging. I had Chris as my instructor, and in a small group of 5 of us, he was very clear, safe, and knowledgeable. We all felt totally safe and had a great time throughout the course. I loved my experience at Big Blue so much that I went back in September to get my advanced certification. I had a different instructor that time, and he was also awesome. Everyone there is helpful and friendly. The setup they have - with a restaurant/bar and a little shop right on the beach, as well as a variety of different lodging options - made it a really easy one-stop-shop for diving in Koh Tao. Very highly recommended for anyone interested in getting certified! I didn't get to do any fun dives with them, but I can say even without having done it that you would be in great hands to go fun diving with them!

Great diving instructors, team and dive sights

The Big Blue team were a good laugh as well as being good instructors. The dive sights were very clear and you could see plenty of different spesices of fish. The only negative would be the Accomodation, but they don't promote the Accomodation, it's included in the package, so it's expected. Overall a fantastic experience and great time. I would definitely recommend it.

Best experience I've ever had

Had gone Scuba diving once before, in Jamaica but they didn't really care much about safety or sealife but Big Blue was the exact oposite. Really good prices for really good instructors. Don't have a bad word to say about it.



Do it!

Amazing experience gaining SSI

Brilliant time, very professional but very fun also. Ant the instructor was great and Saul was brilliant DM, both a lot of fun and great advice for future dives that we are now putting into practice. Defiantly would recommend, already have and they have since also gone to big blue to get there SSI also.

Thanks.
