Great

It's a great place in Koh Tao! But they are a bit over pushy when trying to sell more stuff and courses. But is ok to make your first steps on diving since Koh Tao doesn't have the best divesites.

Best experience of my life!

Thank you so much to Rosse, Steven, and our instructor Iaan ! Best boat that we could see off Koh Tao. Professional, fun and safe instructors, equipment, and atmosphere. We loved every second spent at Big Blue, and can't wait to return some day.

My TripAdvisor review

We decided to do our open water course with Big Blue and it was the best decision we ever made! Initially I really struggled with the skills in the pool session as I started panicking about my breathing underwater, but our first instructor, Andreas, helped me calm down and gave me the opportunity for some one on one instruction after my group had finished.
His help was invaluable, but did mean I was a day behind my boyfriend as he was due to do his first dive when I hadn't finished my skills; however, Andreas went out of his way to arrange for me to redo the skills with Reiss, another instructor, so that we could dive together.
I was still nervous about my breathing underwater but Reiss was absolutely fantastic and massively helped me build my confidence and have fun- we liked him so much that we went on to do our advanced course with him!
During the advanced, I got ill for one of the days we were scheduled to dive on, but Reiss and Big Blue rearranged it for when we felt better and at no extra cost. We met loads of great people and a potentially disastrous situation was made a rewarding and magical experience for us by both Reiss and his colleagues.

I highly recommend Reiss to anyone who is looking to dive, whether nervous or not, as he is extremely professional and lots of fun. I look forward to returning to Big Blue for more great diving in the future!

Chill diving school

I did my advanced, Nitrox, and Deep with Big Blue Diving. The instructor was very good and relaxed. The whole group had fun and a good experience. Besides, there is a nice place to be, after and in between your dives. Chill party spirit, good food and nice people.

AMAZING

When I went diving with Big Blue it was my first real diving experience, and since then I've been diving with many other companies and have yet to have a better experience. These guys are awesome I'd come back in a heart beat.

I spent a magical week at this place

I spent 7 days taking courses and staying at the dorms, it was probably one of the best weeks of my life! Great staff, accommodations were fine and my diving instructor was amazing!

Great for backpackers

I can here in August and had the most amazing time scuba diving. I originally can for just my open water course and stayed for the advance cause it was so fun. The intrusctors were fun and friendly and I made amazing friends there that I continued traveling with. Scuba diving is an amazing opportunity and I would recommend everyone to go to big blue in Koh toa for an awesome experience

I'm coming back!

the friendliest,most welcoming group of instructors. Never felt I couldn't ask something, always felt like a valued team member not just a cheque. They even tried to convince me to stay when I had to leave early! Definitely coming back again to finish my Divemaster training. I cannot tell you how professional and thorough they were in their training.
