I have just finished both my SSI Open Water and Advanced Adventurer with Big Blue and can't speak more highly of them! The entire team at big blue was welcoming and very helpful on and off the boat and in their affiliated store and other resort. Accommodation is comfortable and free as a diving student. The boat is excellent and... More

First diving I had done in years and Ko Tao is a perfect place to dive (especially if you don’t like cold water). The staff were real friendly and after the dives would always join you for a beer – met some cool people here and would recommend diving with them. If you are looking to head to Ko Tao... More

What a great place to learn to dive!! Not only was it well organised, comfortable and fun, the people are great. Ask for Ernesto for your open water and advanced - the night five was one of the best things I've ever done!!!

Also had a nice time with other Dive Masters and instructors. I recommand Chumphon Pinaccle, South West Pinnacle and the night... More

Did my open water course with Big Blue a week ago and loved every minute of it. My instructors were Stevo and Ophilia, they were both absolutely amazing, especially as I was really nervous and scared, they were patient and really encouraging. Not to mention a really good laugh. I was only planning on staying on Koh Tao for one... More

I started koh tao with just a name "big blue" and apparently thats all I needed! From the port I asked for big blue and I got a free taxi straight to the Dive School. From there I booked an open water licence course. The price was reasonable with accomodation included. Little bit of advice would be to stay at... More

I just finished my last dive of my Advanced Course today and with that my diving time on Koh Tao came to an end. I had a great time at Big Blue Diving the last week. As I did m Open Water Diver over two years ago I started here with a Refresh Course for one day that made me... More

Never scuba dived before so did not know what to expect, the wife & I completed our SSI Open Water with a small group lead by the excellent Nick. I've had several instructors over the years in various sports e.g skiing, snowboarding, golf etc. & I can honestly say that Nicks' knowledge & professionalism was second to non, and there... More

I was doing a 3 week trip through Thailand and heard great things about Big Blue so that's where I went. I had been scuba diving once and Mexico and wasn't a huge fan but figured I'd give it another shot. Glad I did! I took the Open Water class with Matt, he was great, friendly and definitely knew his... More

We could not have had a better time with Big Blue Diving. We have just returned from spending a few weeks travelling around the Gulf of Thailand and the Big Blue diving experience was certainly the highlight. We decided not to say in the free accommodation provided Big Blue (BB) 1&2 (although from chatting to people who did stay there... More
