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.

Big blue truly has something to offer for everyone. My brother and I came planning on staying a few days and I ended up staying 10! He completed his open water course with instructor Iain who definitely lives up to his surname. I got amongst the fun dives alongside a range of experienced dive masters who all had something different to offer. Whether your into pumped up adventure dives searching for the big stuff (btw whale shark 7 times! Thanks to expert DM Steven!) or you prefer just cruising through the stunning coral hunting for that cute little juvenile harliquin sweet lips. Big blue tailors your experiences so you make the most of your time and money which are always so precious during travelling. Unlike other companies on Ko Tao, the big blue dive boats access all of the amazing dive sites the island has to offer. Some are quite far away so often on an afternoon dive big blue boats will be the only one at a dive site leaving you and your group to explore without someone clambering over your head with a giant camera. If your not having the time of your life at big blue somethings going wrong, as long as you let someone know they will sort you out immediately qnd go out of their way to fix it.

A couple of stand out staff of course need to be mentioned who contributed to my five star experience here. Dive master Nick T assists divers of all levels with an outgoing attitude and helps you to feel at ease. Boat master and DM Darren knows that place inside and out and ensures everything on the dive trips run smoothly. DM Luke and his ipad have extensive knowledge of the marine life and can identify any queries. Instructor Chris Cherry is a honey creating a relaxed environment essential for diving.

I will definitely be heading back to this amazing place in the near future and recommend that anyone visiting Thailand who is diver or would like to give it a go simply must, call into Big Blue!

Worst Accomodation ever

Diving was quite ok. Good equipment, friendly instructors and very well organized.

The Accomodation where I lived in was horrible. No AC and it smelled like shit all night long. It felt as if I sleep in a toilet.

Besides that fact the room is very small and the mosquitos are killing you in the night.

All in all the diving is cool, big blue diving as an accomodation shit.

Response from Big Blue Diving, Koh Tao Oct 18, 2013

Hey Roger, Glad you enjoyed the diving but sorry to read you had such a low opinion of our accommodation. Did you let anyone in reception know you were unhappy with your room? Would you mind letting me know which room you stayed in.
Like I said Roger sorry you didnt enjoy your stay with us but glad you enjoyed the diving.
Yours,
Jim Donaldson, General Manager
