Great experience

Big Blue was exactly what I hoped for when I went for my first diving experience. They took all the stress out of the experience. They picked us up from the ferry, we stayed in decent rooms with good air-con that were close to the dive center, and the instructors were knowledgeable and personable. The facilities and boat are top notch. The dive sites were beautiful. I liked it so much I stayed for my advanced open water certification as well. I would absolutely recommend to a friend.

Awesome experience getting Advanced Adventurer certification!

I spent a week at staying at Big Blue in the summer of 2016 getting my Advanced Adventurer certification and going on some fun dives afterwards. The classes were well run with small groups and knowledgeable instructors. Every trip out on the boats were very well handled, and the dive sites were all incredible. I'll definitely have Big Blue at the top of my list for a return visit the next time I'm in Thailand!

A great time!

I had an amazing time getting both my Open Water and my Advanced Diving Certifications at Big Blue Diving. They really push SSI here but definitely will accommodate those who want to do PADI. The instructors are nice and help you the entire journey. The air-conditioned dorms are a must.

Very accommodating

I had a fantastic time with Big Blue Diving. I was a little worried they would be booked solid, but they managed to get me in on fairly short notice. Our group was fairly small, so the instructor was able to spend a good amount of time with each of us. I actually had an issue on one of the dives and our instructor took me back out so that I could finish the course. Great experience overall!

Amazing Experience

Everything about my time at Big Blue Diving was fantastic. I was picked up at the ferry when I arrived with no strings attached to book with the company. I ended up booking the Open water course which started the very next day. The price what very competitive to other dive centers in the area. I also stayed at their hotel in a private room. It was a short walk from the main lodge (which has hostel type accommodations). The room was clean, a very comfortable king sized bed and A/C. I got a discount since I was diving with them. I didn't spend much time in the room, the dive center has a wonderful open - aired beach side cafe. So when I wasn't diving, we were spending time there, or on the beach chairs they provide. When it comes to diving, they are very professional. The instructors are very good at their jobs. They are informative and lots of fun. I felt safe at all times. My only complaint is that I didn't have time to take the advanced course.

Steve-o

My boyfriend and I took the course to get certified for diving with Steve-o! He was by far the best teacher ever! He took time to work with me and make me comfortable under the water!

Great atmosphere and great trainers

Great trainers, always felt well lookef after and they made sure we were doing the right thing. Class sizes quite big, but to be expected of big dive school. Only giving 4 stars as the blonde headed English girl at reception was horrible. We were there for 9 days and she was incredibly rude and we felt like we were bothering her by being there. Nearly didn't do my advanced because of her. My awesome trainers made up for it.

I love Big Blue Diving

It was my first diving experience and i did the open water course. We only had 5 days to stay on Koh Tao but we could start the course the evening we arrived. So i think it's a really good thing they starts courses every day! Everybody is very friendly an the food is really good to! we were with 3 people to dive for one instructor (2 chinees people didn't pass the flooting test), so its also very good that were were not with to many people for one instructor. If i have to give points that can be improved is the matrasses in the dorms and the humidity were the showers are. (Don't know if you can do anything about that..) Overall i was very happy to do my course at big blue. Sorry for my bad Englisch...

An unforgettable experience

Instructors Lilie and Sonia were amazing, the dive sites beautiful, and the whole experience one I'll never forget. My only complaint would be that the food was a little over priced and sometimes we couldn't avoid eating there due to when lessons were.

Great dive school

REALLY friendly school with community atmosphere and small class sizes. I really felt my individual needs were cared about and accommodated, with my amazing teacher going the extra mile at every opportunity. It's also on a great spot on the Sairee Beach - close enough to all the partying but far enough away that it isn't too busy.
