Was in Thailand for 2months and havnt stopped talking about the diving! It was mine and my partners favourite part of the holiday! We did our open water immediately followed by the advance with Neil who was a fantastic teacher and a great laugh. If it wasnt for him we might not have stayed to do our advance and it was so worth it as those were our favourite dives!
Me and my partner both got food poisoning half way through the course and had to take a day off, but we were assured we could continue the course from where we left off with Neil, the dive instructor we had requested for our advance after doing the open water with him.
The whole atmosphere is brilliant at big blue, its always busy, a great place to meet new people, fantastic diving and a great fish BBQ on the beach in the evenings! Only one word of warning, it was the taco's from the big blue2 site that gave us food poisoning! Otherwise the food there was always good and reliable.
