Had a great day with big blue divers doing a DSD (Discover Scuba Diving) Andy and Chris were our instructors for the day and they were both very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed it so much that we are hoping to do our PADI course in the not too distant future!

I did two consecutive days of fun diving in early December. Everything about the diving itself (equipment, instructors, lunch etc) was absolutely magnificent and a true pleasure! The groups were small, and the instructor was good at describing and explaining what we could possibly see on each dive. As for the administrative part, there had been a misunderstanding. This was...

Best dive company hands down. Great instructors (thanks Scotty) small group classes. Best boats and decent equipment. It is in party central so if you like to sleep pay for a quiet room. Stayed ten days .,..at 56 I was a doubter...they made me a diver :)

I went to Koh Tao last week with no real intention to do any diving. After arriving on the island and speaking with a number of people I decided I would do my open water diving course. I was recommended Big Blue by a few friends who had done their open water course there. I was in a group of... More

Just completed the open water diving course. Had such a great time learning to dive. Daisy our instructor was so nice & made the overall experience so much better. Small groups meant we got the attention we all needed and got to go at our own pace, which made a huge difference to me especially as I wouldn't be the... More
