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!
