Beginner nerves of diving

Not necessarily the place to go for beginner divers who are still nervous about diving and are doing PADI. There are few PADI instructors and I tried to take steps to ease into the open water diving but it was ignored by my instructor until I was too nervous to continue.

Response from Big Blue Diving, Koh Tao Sep 06, 2013

Hi, thanks so much for writing in & giving us your feedback on your experience with us at Big Blue during your Open Water Course. I am however absolutely gutted to read it! I am the Manager & part owner of Big Blue & funnily enough during my Open Water Course I was literally seconds from dropping out but the patience of my Instructor made me complete what was what I thought an extremely hard task. He got me through it! & now almost 20 years later I am doing pretty well at this Diving lark & have made a reasonably successful career out of it! All because of my Instructor! I think the best Instructors arent those that get the popularity vote but those that have the patience to get people like you & me ( the nervous ones) through to the end despite the hurdles & obstacles. I would really appreciate it if you could drop me a line to jim@big blue diving.com & let me know the name of your Instructor so I can tell him about my experience, your experience & hopefully advise them on how to improve their qualities or recommend a different career!
Do hope you can spare me the time & on behalf of all good Instructors out there I really hope you'll give Scuba Diving a Second chance. Trust me , it'll change your life!
Do hope to hear from you
Yours
Jim Donaldson

Great Experience and Great Value

I thoroughly enjoyed the four days I had with Big Blue Diving. As a new diver, I strongly appreciated the professionalism and experience the dive masters showed. I was also very impressed by the overall cost for the four days (two dives a day) and the four nights I stayed at the Big Blue dorms.



If I'm ever back in Ko Tao, I will definitely dive with Big Blue, and will certainly recommend Big Blue to any friends or relatives going to Ko Tao.
