We read reviews and decided to book our diving with Bug Blue. We had Liam Kelly as our instructor and the first morning was mainly theory work. The afternoon we got kitted up and went to the pool to begin the water sessions. I felt uncomfortable with the though of breathing only through my mouth and not my nose! Liam... More

We did our open water SSI with Luke and couldn't just stop there so we continued straight onto advanced with Luke also. Great instructor and very nice guy - really goes out of his way to make your experience better, even leant us some of his own equipment to make the dives even more special! Would recommend Big Blue in... More

I did my advanced adventurer diving certification with Big Blue and was very impressed with the service, tuition and price. Koh Tao is absolutely beautiful and they provide as much variety as possible in terms of dive sites. There are loads of dive resorts on Koh Tao, but Big Blue are the only ones that seem to be constantly busy... More

As an avid diver for over 15 years and 200+ dives, I enjoyed fun diving with Big Blue and found that the staff was friendly, professional and dives were safe. I hadn't been to Ko Tao in over twelve years to dive and went out for 4 dives in one day. Both the morning dive lead Angel and Nick the... More

I did my Open Water certification with Big Blue last week from sunday to wednesday, and it really was a great experience. It's one of the biggest school in Koh Tao, so it's perfect to meet many other fellow travelers doing their certification at the same time as you, but more importantly the diving instructors are highly qualified and very...

This shop really made our trip to Ko Tao! All the staff were excellent and very friendly and helpful! The shop offers a variety of dive sites including night diving every other evening. The boats were large and had lots of room for everyone and everything, fruit was served between dives and water/coffee/tea and biscuits were available at all times.... More

I finished my Open Water Diver course on Thursday this week and can only be described as amazing! My instructor Steve-O and Rosy a DMT were brilliant. Never felt pressured in the water and always felt safe. Would thoroughly recommend the Big Blue to anybody who fancies diving, once you've descended down through a school of a few thousand Baracuda... More

My partner and I both did our scuba training with Big Blue years ago - yet we keep coming back to dive with this incredibly organised, skilled, fun, friendly, family feeling business. Ko Tao has much to offer, very busy and tourist friendly - and if you are learning to dive, fun diving or wanting to up skill - Big... More

I completed my PADI Open Wate Diver course with Big Blue, and I am so glad that I chose such a fantastic company. My dive instructor, Ami, was incredible, making sure I knew exactly what I was doing and massively increasing my confidence in the water. I had one-on-one tuition, very rare for a diving company of its size, and... More
