My wife and I had 2 great dives with Big Blue. Our dive master Lina was very knowledgeable and looked after us really well. The dive company has a great casual feel, with exceptional safety standards and equipment. I would highly recommend Big Blue for amateur and experienced divers alike.

I highly recommend doing your open water diving license here! It's the cheapest place you'll find, 1,000 baht, which includes 4 nights of accommodation while you are doing the course. I found myself in Thailand by myself with a few days of spare time, and I would recommend this activity to anyone in the same boat. The staff were highly... More

As a couple who have never been diving and only decided to try after being told by so many people how amazing it is, we were rather cautious of it. After a day where we very easily booked in a day course with JD in the office and then had the experience of a lifetime with Phil our first 2... More

Incredible dive school with incredible dive instructors. Everyone is very laid back. Matt and Kent made me feel very comfortable under water, just enjoying the coral instead of focussing too much on technicalities. The centre is very mellow and you have the liberty to do what you want, a little joyous bubble away from home.

I came to Koh Tao to get my Open Water certification and Big Blue did an amazing job. I had two instructors (Matt and Gus) who made the process really great - lots of banter but the serious information was communicated as such. I'm sure there are many schools who let you pass with ease but Big Blue cut no... More

A few days ago my boyfriend and I finished our open water SSI course at Big Blue and this was a fantastic experience! The diving itself is great, but staying at Big Blue made it even better. Our instructor Steve was very warm, funny, relaxed and made us feel comfortable in the water. We can really recommend this place!

It was my first time diving, so I was pretty unsure what to expect. From the get-go we were made to feel really comfortable, everything was explained to us and our itinerary was explained. With so many diving places to choose from it's pretty overwhelming, but I'm so glad we chose Big Blue. Our instructor Boz was great, he made... More

I felt really save while diving with him, he has a lot of experience. Because I liked the diving so much I also did the advanced course. Kent Bilstrom's first course, he... More
