Booked on to do my Advanced Open Water with Big Blue mainly because of their comprehensive website and free/discounted accommodation. Really happy I did! Matt and Richie are top class instructors - very encouraging and patient. The course was great fun, unfortunately a storm reduced visibility and altered the components, but the skills learnt will be integral to my future... More

Where to start!!! These guys ran me through my open water and advanced diving, they went above and beyond in and out of the water at sea and inland absolute legends, passionate and enthusiastic from the time you start your course to the time you are done having a beer at the end of the day. Couldn't have got better... More

I didn't stay with Big Blue as when we arrived the only room we were offered was a double bed fan room which was scorching hot, but it was the only available accommodation since we hadn't booked. So all good with that. The diving experience was great: great briefing, friendly and extremely professional staff, and they are good judge of... More

We had an absolutely brilliant time with Big Blue Diving. With a few hairy moments, nerves and anxiety nearly had me pulling the pin on my open water license. With Scott (beautifully assisted by our DMT, Stefan) I was reassured. Thank you for allowing me to comfortably and safely fall in love with scuba diving and the underwater world. xxx... More

I just left Big Blue and I can't praise this place or our instructors enough. I did my open water course and our instructors Stevo and Liam were excellent. The whole experience was amazing. I was just devastated I had to leave.

Big Blue diving is known for their great reviews/reputation, but my time spent was very average. I was disappointed on more than one occasion. The 6 bed dorm you get free accom on the days you dive, when I arrived I was told my booking did not exist so they offered me a 4 bed dorm at 100 baht per... More

I can not stress enough how much my week at Big Blue made my Trip. I have been traveling for a year now and this is by far one of my highlights. Learning to dive is so incredible and Big Blue were the perfect company to go with. The teaching was superb and the environment was special. A wonderful week!... More

Our open water course at big blue was amazing. While doing the diving course,they provided us with free accommodation. What really stood out for us was our instructor Mike. He was really reassuring and took our initial fears away and made it fun and overall an awesome experience for us. We would highly recommend Mike!

This driving school welcomed me from the vota to koh tao already, and at the driving school the contact got better (phil welcomed me here and gave me a lot of information). Then I wanted to do the padi course, and this was no problem (Neil arranged this). I got... More
