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%.

BEST experience!

Shout out to Big Blue Dive School and my instructor Alex for superceeding my expectations regarding my first diving experience. I'm an Emergency Room nurse in the states and am quite apprehensive about entrusting others with my safety and life. These fears were quickly put to rest upon arrival...in fact, I almost stayed for an advanced certification (as well as the other ER nurse I was traveling with). I truely can't imagine having had a better experience! Make sure to request Alex for your instructor as he is intelligent, knowledgeable, humorous and considerate, THANKS AGAIN!!!!

A sublime experience

Koh Tao is the perfect place to get lost and Big Blue is the perfect place to find yourself. From the instructors, to the general personnel, all of them are very professionals and lovely. The ammount of experiance thay they have and share is incredible. I have been there two times and my idea is keep going as much as I can. It feels so good to be there and dive with them that makes you think if you need a new approach to life! Thanks for all that you have given to me Big Blue!

Extremely Up Tight Instructir

Initially I was going to book and do the entire diving instructors coarses with Big Blue. Unfortunately Ant (our diving instructor) was extremely up tight and moody the entire time. On 2 separate occasions he completely verbally insulted our class. A few times he even threatened to cancel our dives when the current started pulling us away from the boat. Honestly Ant, I don't really care how many people you have certified I just really wish I had done my open water through MOJO..

Very Friendly and Informative

Very friendly, the instructors were great and there was a great community of people helping out, I did the open water course, advanced course and a free diving course. My favourite course was the free diving but all of them were amazing and all of the instructors were really helpful

Where my heart belongs

Amazing time.
Instructor was Ant 2, who was great. I'm not going to lie, within 20min in the pool I was not going to continue, but he got me through it and turns out I love it!
Group size was good, my friend and I got paired with some idiot who was solo so I wished the groups were a little more even, since there was a group of 2 German girls learning in German, I figured the idiot (happened to be German) should have been with them to make more even groups, but hey, if that's my biggest complaint then that says something.
Really though, even in shitty weather we had a great time.
It set me up to dive in Vietnam and Cambodia as well as this year Mexico so thank you deep blue!
Also, get some more shirts in! Ran out the day I was leaving ! Boo!!!
Lol great times though

Awesome experience

I did my open water course with Big Blue Diving and had an amazing time there. Great staff, a lot of nice people, a very social place, excellent teaching. Their teaching is great and they have their own boats leaving directly in front of the facility. Dorm beds are included in the rate and they are also very good. They even have a restaurant with very good food. I had a great time and can highly recommend Big Blue!
