The entire experience we had whilst diving and staying at Big Blue was fantastic. There are options for many different courses including SSI and PADI.
The atmosphere that surrounds Big Blue is one where you can kick back and relax with a great social scene. The accommodation at Big Blue 2 (there are two sites, one situated at main reception and the other a 3 minute walk down the beach next to the pool) was great for what we needed, comfortable beds, hot showers, towels and blankets provided with lockers in bb2 reception (and wifi, two bars, two restaurants and free taxi service to the pier). Accommodation was free on the days we were diving.
As far as diving goes, the course (we did SSI) was structured really well, everything was thoroughly explained and having access to the swimming pool to do skills and training with the equipment was so useful.
The equipment at Big Blue is all up to date, checked and well maintained. They have 3 large boats to take out to the dive sites and 100% oxygen is kept onboard (as well as fresh fruit, biscuits, tea, coffee and a well-stocked medicine cabinet!).
Not once did I feel unsafe as a new diver, and the group sizes are never more than 6 people. You feel really looked after and I cannot recommend Big Blue enough. It was such an amazing experience and such a good laugh. It's not every day you do horse and jockey races at 18m..! Thanks mini Ant for an unforgettable Open Water course :D
