Big Blue is awesome. I don't have enough good words to write about this company. I went to Koh Tao during a backpacking trip and chose to do the "discover diving" one-day class they had. It's not the cheapest diving company on the island, but do you really want the cheapest when doing such a dangerous activity? I really struggled... More

I went to Koh Tao one month ago and took a five-day fun diving tour, the best part of my 15-days travel in Thailand. I dove with Big Blue, which I recognize as the best diving resort on Koh Tao for the best location on the Sairee beach, amazingly nice staff, good food, nice equipment and free accommodation. I did... More

I went to Ko Tao with the intention of staying 4 days and doing my open water course with Big Blue, but I ended up loving it so much that I stayed on for the Advanced course as well and then two extra days beyond that to do some fun dives. The courses were fantastic. Petra was one of the... More

Really good experience. The staff are extremely experienced and great teachers. Thanks again Tim and Nicole! I had problems with my visa payment and the staff were very helpful. I liked it so much that I did my advanced open water. Only drawback was that I decided to register last minute and so the dorms were full. Book in advance.

Did my Advanced Open Water and 4 fun dives with Big Blue and stayed in their accommodation. Everything about the Big Blue experience was well done. V experienced instructors ( over 50 years instructing experience at Big Blue between the top 5 instructors alone). The prices of diving and accommodation on Koh Tao are very similar. What does vary is... More

I visited Koh Tao mid- May 2015 with the aim to try diving. I was quite anxious about it but really wanted to experience it. So I went to the Big Blue dive shop and spoke to a couple of guys and I ended up signing up for the Open Water course. Koh Tao has some amazing dive sites and... More

I went to Koh Tao to complete my open water course with Big Blue from my sister's recommendation. From the moment we arrived to the moment we sadly left, everything and everyone there was amazing! Our instructor, G, was hands down brilliant! Her guidance and training was beyond expectation and we really did learn so much, not just about diving,... More

My partner and I have just finished a fun dive package with Big Blue. First the pros.. Very friendly and competent dive staff. Special mention to Nick (who signed us up on the package), Lina (who we dived most with), Beat (who was a very good DM and looked after us on the day trip) and Steve (both Geordie and... More

Highly recommend!!! I completed the Open Water Coarse through Big Blue with Matt as our instructor and absolutely loved it! Easily one of the best things I've ever done in my life. All of the dive masters were friendly and approachable. Matt ensured each individual in our group received exemplary training whilst constantly checking that we felt calm and comfortable... More
