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.

Great!

I really loved your diving school and also going diving with you. The only thing that I didn't enjoy though, was the fact that the pool was kind of disgusting, but I guess it might be hard keeping it clean with so many people being in it for such a long time. Anyway, I loved diving with you and I've already recommended you to a friend.

I can defenately recommend Big Blue in Koh Tao

Very professional and secure. Took my first certificates here and came back years later after diving at alot of different places and find Big Blue kept its very high standards and quality. Great equipment, great staff, very well trained instructors. I would say defenately one of the best places/companies to go diving with. It seems they found a balance, a way for newer staff to add value, blend in and bring in new fresh "strenghts" as well as keeping what is good already. A very sound and safe environment for practicing potentially high risk sports in other words. I would defenately recommend Big Blue to anybody. To the new beginner taking their first open water certificate and diving for the first time. For the more advanced diver that wants to fun dive and maybe get some more experience or a new certificate. It seems alot (ALOT!) of people also find it a very good place to become dive masters and even more advanced diving professionals as well. Alot of them trained me and I dove with a lot of them over the last few years. Everywhere I go diving and meet people that have been at Big Blue they tell me good things and I think in general they have a really really great reputation in the industry for beeing professional, trustworthy, very very serious about safety, keeping good equipment in good order etc. Also they mind the environment alot and do very much to clean up on land and in the waters. Go here. You will love it.

A factory

The person in charge of us was perfect but we had the feeling to be in a scuba diving factory. Too many people. We spent too much time waiting.

Best outfit anywhere!

Highlight of my trip! Big Blue is amazing. I can't say enough about the professionalism, the service and the fun. I can't wait to go back!! Hopefully you'll get lucky and get Stephen Larder as your instructor, he is not only super knowledgeable about all the different species, he was incredible at being able to teach to all different skill levels and personalities. Although from everyone I spoke with they all said the same thing about their instructors. Can't go wrong with this place.

Great vibe!

I love this school! I did the try dive and I would definitely do it again! Before choosing a school I went all over the island to inform myself about prices and accomplishments. My result: Big Blue Diving had the friendliest staff and the best conditions! Nowhere else people spent so much time explaining and caring about my questions. In addition to that the owners are incredibly nice and spread an awesome vibe. And my diving teacher was super professional and gave me the feeling to be save under the water. All in all it was one of the best experiences I ever had. The feeling of diving is so great you cannot discribe how great it actually is! People out there, go to Big Blue and have one of the best days :)

Great beach, very professional, great vibe

I kept saying that while at Big Blue I felt like I was at Summer Camp. The vibe was so much fun, great comradery, very relaxing . The facilities were modern and the walk to and from the main centre was relaxing and so scenic...I miss it.

Excellent, completely satisfactory

Big blue was everything I hoped for. Great facilities. Wonderful teacher who made us feel very safe, yet still made the learning fun. Good group size. I liked having sleeping accom right on site. Great social atmosphere with a nice patio bar/restaurant on beach

Briliant experience at scuba diving

I had completed the open water diving course at Big Blue diving. The Big blue diving team definitely provided me with one of the best experiences of my life and I have already recommended many of my friends to try out the course. Right from the course registration, payment, answering questions to doing the course was as smooth and easy as it can be. Morever the atmosphere, the people, and the food is too good.

Fantastic, safe and fun

I did the open water course here for 4 days and had a great few days, staff are really friendly and helpful and made you feel comfortable really quickly. Accommodation was decent and food was really nice. Early morning starts are worth it!

Incredible Experience

As a trained Divemaster I am critical of my continued training and the level of safety standards and professionalism. My experience with Big Blue for my recent technical diving course was a excellent experience. The instruction was fantastic and the overall dive school was well run. I would highly recommend any course or training.

Best dive school - ever!

We were recommended to go to Big Blue to learn to dive by a friend we met on our travels. We went, we saw, we loved it. Never been to a dive school before but were massively impressed by the warm, laid back but efficient communication before we got there and the equally warm welcome when we arrived. Our instructor Stevo was the poor guy who had to put up with us and my slow learning ability and was an absolute gem. We hit if off from the start and the banter flowed. The Open Water course was duly completed with a great set of team mates and we moved on in Thailand, only to come back 5 weeks later to do the Advanced course. The second time we came back we felt instantly as if we were at home again amongst friends and family. The diving is wonderful of course and seeing Whale Sharks is the cherry on the top of a delicious cake. I had full confidence in all aspects of the operation. I knew my instructor would be there if I had a problem, and the care and maintenance of the kit was exemplary (I've been elsewhere since and been let down by the kit on a number of dives) . After the diving there is the relaxed atmosphere of the bar and restaurant to celebrate our achievements. Would I recommend Big Blue? Absolutely and 100%.
