I came to Koh Tao having travelled Thailand & kind of knew I wanted to dive with Big Blue, but wasn't 100% sure, but once checking the website one final time & seeing the funny biographies of the staff I knew instantly this was the diving resort for me!

We had a fantastic experience diving with Divemaster Angel. First we did a refresher, and following that another three dives at Twins, Red rock and No Name. Angel is extremely experienced in these waters and knew how to find all the cool stuff (hovever small or hidden sometimes). He took enough time to take us through instructions, briefing of the...

My son on 11 years and I did a diving course today. This Company is very professionel and High class. Our instructur Johan took hand of us a hole day and thought us everyting about diving, fish, coral and life in the sea. Most off all he made us feel safe and enjoying diving.

We had Chris who was super nice and offered a beer at the... More

Did my Open Water & Advance Adventurer with Big Blue, it's lucky to have Mikael Roos as instructor because he is very helpful and patient person. Mike taught us a lot at simple way, and he also shared some experience & information with us. I really had fun through out the diving days... The food of restaurant was pretty good,... More

If you're planning on doing the open water course, save twice the money cause once you've tried it, you're definitely gonna want to continue with the advanced course! Tim and Erin were great professionals and extremely kind people, i would really recommand courses with'em!

Having been recommended to try diving on Ko Tao by friends I'd made in Chiang Mai I arrived at the island solo and slightly suspicious of the friendly Big Blue representative on the ferry to the island loading newcomers into the back of a truck. I shouldn't have worried but because I had my guard up I decided to research... More

They have excellent equipment, very nice staff, comfortable boats and reasonable pricing.... but they lack decent accommodation. Even though we went for the expensive option we were very uncomfortable in an under-standard room. Next time we will use them only for diving, but not for sleeping. I am specially grateful to the Divemaster Fiona, who gave me one of the... More

Did my first diving with Big Blue Diving in Koh Tao and loved it. Very good diving school. Cool people and a friendly attitude. Thanks to my divinginstructor Chris, he did a very good job, a funny guy who is very patient with everyone and knows how to help us kids :P
