A series of fortunate events

I arrived on the shores of Koh Tao, a lady from Big Blue came up to me and offered to lift me to the beach i wanted stay on. My plan from the start was to stay at the koh Tao Backpackers but they were full. I then made my way too Big Blue and asked if they had accommodation, they told me I had to dive to stay there. Having no plans to dive before that moment, I thought why not. I ended up staying on Koh Tao for a week longer than I had planned because staying and diving with Big Blue was so unbelievably amazing.

Best teacher ever! Good equipment, very friendly people

I was really scared to go diving, but my instructor made sure i dare to do it and he was on my side the whole time and was so patient. I couldn't have done it without him! And then i would have missed out on one of the most amazing experiences of my life! Thank you Big Blue Diving! And Thank you Steve!

I will not go there again

I am disapointed. Three years ago me and my boyfriend visited Koh Tao and Big Blue. IT was a friendly atmosphere, style and pricing. Now had not only the prices got up a little bit too high for their standard both concerning the rooms and in the restaurant, but mostely has the friendly stress free and relaxed feel gone out the window. The bungalows are almost falling apart and the costumer service is not flexible or personal as before. Such a shame. I recommend Thalasso nearby for a better standard and especially for their more friendly staf. Not Big Blue.

Response from Big Blue Diving, Koh Tao Oct 08, 2013

Hi Sofie,
Very sorry to read your review on your stay with us here in Koh Tao. I was hoping you would spare me another minute of your time & explain a little more regarding the lack of freindliness & stress that you experienced. There is nothing I hate more than unfriendly customer service & if this is what you have experienced I would really like to put a stop to it.
AS for pricing, I'm not 100% sure but am fairly certain our prices are still the same as they were 3 years ago. We even have more accommodation to offer at lower prices than 3 years ago. Not sure thats the same for the restaurant tho so you are probably right there. But regardless I would really appreciate some further feedback on the lack of courtesy & customer service you experienced with us if you could spare me the time.
Much appreciated & sorry once again that you didnt enjoy your time with us.
By the way you haven't mentioned the diving. How was that for you?
Yours,
Jim Donaldson, General Manager/Partner

Response from Big Blue Diving, Koh Tao Oct 08, 2013

:-( Hmmm, yeah we got a little inundated this year. You obviously caught us in peak season. We do try & avoid the Dive factory feel which is why we have more boats than anyone & 2 resorts & a guesthouse so that we can try & spread it all about rather than be soo concentrated but sometimes it just gets soo busy its hard to do. Sorry about that but do hope despite it all you didnt have too bad a time with us.
Regardless, thanks very much for taking the time to give us some feedback
Yours,
Jim Donaldson, General Manager/ Partner

Nice place, people and so much fun... just perfect!

I already had the advanced open water diver when I arrived at Koh tao. I ended up at big blue and that was a great luck. After a few fun dives I decided to make a wreck diving course. My instructor was Matt Waters. He is a funny but also serious person. He did a perfect job as instructor and I would recommend him without any exceptions. I was the only customer in this course so it was always just us two and some diving master students. So also the breaks between two dives to the amazing wreck was always a fun time.

I did my fun dives with Harrison, a diving master student that has his full heart at diving and you can feel that. He showed us so many nice fishes and other great things under water that every fun dive was a perfect adventure.

The last dive I had was a night dive with Irma. She also did a great job and after the diving we all had a great time at the bar on the beach.

I am sure that it wasn't my last trip to Koh tao and for the next time my first point to go is for sure big blue again. Thank you again for a great week.

Yours, Max

High expectations surpassed

Big Blue had been recommended separately by two friends, so I had high expectations going into the course. The plan was to complete my open water as quickly as possible and then move on to meet up with friends. 2 weeks; open water, advanced and 14 dives later I reluctantly left grinning from ear to ear. Accommodation, instructors, equipment, everything was top notch and I can't recommend them enough.

Ami is the best!

Officially addicted to diving, Big Blue was such a phenom environment to learn and Ami was seriously so awesome! Without her knowledge and experience I don't think we would have been as inspired as we are to continue diving! Keep doing what you doing big clue!!
