I can see why a lot of people might really enjoy diving with Big Blue, but for me it wasn't quite on point. I dived with three different organisations during my time on Koh Tao and I definitely preferred Big Blue the least. I did two fun dives with them a couple of weeks ago. Our DM had obviously done...

My wife and I went to Koh Tao for our honeymoon, not really knowing what to expect. We only had a few days to dive and I didn't have a license, but the staff at Big Blue helped get me certified and in the water ASAP. Moreover, I had a great time doing it! My instructor was Rob who was... More

Stayed at Big Blue a few weeks ago to do the open water padi course. This is clearly a very slick operation and they have two centres both on the main beach. The staff were excellent from start to finish (Special shout out to Daisy, my instructor and Derek, our dude of a Divemaster! Both of them were great and... More

I went for a day of diving with Big Blue Diving last Monday and really excited to give a good review for them. However, I was concerned that their gears was not maintained properly..at least those that I was supplied with. First off, the mouthpiece was not tied to the reg. I only found out when I jumped into the... More

I visited big blue to complete my open water diving course. My instructor was Mini Ant. He was a cool dude, who knew his stuff and was a good laugh. The course itself was amazing, everyone seemed to pick it up really quickly. The teaching was very good also, He always explained things well. The group I had were awesome,... More

Booked on to do my Advanced Open Water with Big Blue mainly because of their comprehensive website and free/discounted accommodation. Really happy I did! Matt and Richie are top class instructors - very encouraging and patient. The course was great fun, unfortunately a storm reduced visibility and altered the components, but the skills learnt will be integral to my future... More

Where to start!!! These guys ran me through my open water and advanced diving, they went above and beyond in and out of the water at sea and inland absolute legends, passionate and enthusiastic from the time you start your course to the time you are done having a beer at the end of the day. Couldn't have got better... More

I didn't stay with Big Blue as when we arrived the only room we were offered was a double bed fan room which was scorching hot, but it was the only available accommodation since we hadn't booked. So all good with that. The diving experience was great: great briefing, friendly and extremely professional staff, and they are good judge of... More

We had an absolutely brilliant time with Big Blue Diving. With a few hairy moments, nerves and anxiety nearly had me pulling the pin on my open water license. With Scott (beautifully assisted by our DMT, Stefan) I was reassured. Thank you for allowing me to comfortably and safely fall in love with scuba diving and the underwater world. xxx... More
