Five of us were booked in for a 2 part try dive, unfortunately two people couldn't make it due to a motorbike accident and a refund was issued straight away without any problems which we really appreciated. Our instructors (Andy and Ashleigh) were incredible and tought us the basics in no time so we could get out and enjoy two... More

We did our open water course with Big Blue and now we refuse to go anywhere else for our advanced! Shoutout to Liam (our instructor) for being so amazing! The small groups and great atmosphere of the resort makes this a place you should definitely put on your itinerary for Thailand!

With no previous experience of diving, me and my brother had no intention of diving during our trip of south east Asia. We were recommended to dive here by a friend and it was truly one of the best weeks of our travels. We completed the open water diving course followed by the advanced course. Our instructors, big ant and... More

We were recommended big blue by past divers and I can honestly say I was over the moon with my experience. From the moment we spoke to a member of the close knit staff we felt welcome and valued. Things just got better when we met Liam our instructor. He was caring, fun, always thinking about our safety, made lessons... More

I did 14 fun dives with Big Blue over 4 days. We had all the arrangement after arrival with just booking prior before that. The staffs were great in all the dive arrangements and hostel arrangements. Divemasters are knowledgeable and know where to exactly to look out for underwater. They put divers according to experience and certification level together so... More

Went to Big Blue after dinner one night and was sold immediately. As we were going to dive anyway it made sense to do the open water so my sister and I signed up to start the next day. I can honestly say this is one of the best experiences I have had in South East Asia. We were a... More

I followed the reviews' direction and went for what appeared to be the best rated dive school. Needless to say, I have not been disappointed. The guys and girls at Big Blue find an excellent balance of fun, professionalism and top quality scuba instruction. I recently completed both open water and advanced dive courses and I can't wait to hit... More

I did my open water course with Big Blue and it was amazing. Small groups so you get individual attention from your instructor. I had Neil as my instructor and he was great...extremely knowledgable! He made me feel safe and relaxed and I fell in love with diving. I went on to do the advanced course with Neil as well... More

Trip Advisor had me heading for Big Blue without so much as a question mark & I'm so glad I did. I and my team mates really lucked out with Guy Bannister as our instructor, the man is a legend! His knowledge about diving is second to none & his ability to knit that together with professional thorough teaching while... More
