Where do you begin with a place like big blue? I had the best time taking the advanced course with mini ant and fun diving with Carly. The two of them made my dive experience perfect! The whole crew there makes you feel like family while on the island. I won't dive anywhere but big blue when I go back... More

All of the staff are very friendly at BBD. Despite the laid back appearance of the beach culture, the staff are highly knowledgeable about diving, what fish are at each dive site, and dive procedures. They are extremely professional in all the tours they take out. Did a Refresher Dive and 2 Fun Dives. Didnt see a whale shark :(

We had a really amazing time at Big Blue. The weather wasn't great in July, but considering we were under water most of the time it wasn't really a problem. Scotty, our instructor was awesome. It was very easy to learn and we got to so some great diving after completing all of the Open Water skills. Thanks Big Blue... More

Big Blue just has an amazing relaxed atmosphere around and I just love it. They have barbecue every night and the food is amazing. I came here in August to see if diving was something for me with a diving introduction and afterwards decided I just had to come back. Came back in September to pass the SSI open water!... More

Came to Big Blue to do an open water diving course and ended up coming back to do the advanced course! Had 3 different instructors, Guy, Luke, and Britney, (usually the same instructor would teach you for the whole course, but I was out of action for a day and had to complete my course in another group) and they...

My second time on Koh Tao, I chose to dive with Big Blue. I had the best time. This is really THE spot for backpackers who want to dive and meet people. All the instructors are so much fun but also really helpful and serious when needed (sometimes under water I get a bit afraid..) in my case this were... More

Two of our teenage girls joined the junior open water course and were enthousiastic from the very first minute. Both the theory and the practise (pool) part was instructed in a serious but also, fun way. The four openwater dives that followed were just fantastic. All the credits to the diving team of Big Bleu and especially to their instructor... More
