        Highly recommended!
        An amazing experiences doing the course with instructor Michael Capper. Michael was very understanding, patient and explaining, making it safe and secure to try diving for the first time. Great dives in the small national parks, and a lot of different and colourful fishes. Sadly the corals were bleached because of the water temperature, but we could see it getting better. All staff at BB divers are super friendly, and a special thanks to Steve, one of their great photographers🤿🐟📸 Best, Kasper & André

        Bargain for the price
        Pretty good snorkel. The company runs the trip really well. Stops at 3 spots for 1hr each. Managed to cater vegan food after requesting it the day before the trip, so extremely grateful for that also. Divers finished up at a similar time to snorkelers so weren't waiting around long to move on which was good too. Can't beat what you get for the price anywhere else I reckon

        Great school and crew
        I had three awesome days with diving instructor Chang from BB-divers. During this time I finished my open water diver license. Chang was a great teacher and the hole crew was very friendly. Definitely a good recommendation for diving.

        Amazing IDC with BB divers and CD Charles
        Finished up an amazing IDC with BB divers and their course Director Charles. It was a very intense course yet so knowledgeable and I learned so much. After the IDC with him the IE was quite easy. Thank you so much for the course and the training and also a shout out to our Staff Instructor Pierre. I would highly recommend the IDC with BB divers and Charles. Great experience and great time. See you guys under the water.

        Good experience with open water
        I had an amazing experience with BB Divers, especially with instructor Cheychuen. After doing a Scuba Discovery Dive, I was so impressed that I decided to proceed with the Open Water course. Cheychuen made the entire process seamless and enjoyable. His expertise and knowledge of the island as a local added an extra layer of insight to the experience. I felt safe and well-prepared under his guidance. Highly recommend BB Divers and Cheychuen for anyone looking to explore the underwater world in Koh Chang.

        PADI openwater diver course
        I did my diving license on April 10th for 3 days. The diving school seemed very professional, as did the diving instructors. My instructor Michael was very competent and I could ask him anything about diving. The equipment was maintained and cleaned every evening. I would recommend this diving school straight away. I also really liked the small groups.

        We went on the boat 3 times for snorkeling, bubble maker diving and diving in Kho Kood. Everybody on the boat is super nice and friendly. We felt save and had a great time on and under the water. Highly recommended.

        Must do experience in Ko Chang
        Me and my girlfriend had a great experience at the school. Our instructor, Chang, is very professional with the teaching and he showed us the underwater treasures of Ko Chang. The approach is primarily focused on all the safety related procedures, which gave us enough confidence to enjoy our first recreational dives. Highly recommended!

        Fun day in the Thai marine park
        A carefree, fun and relaxing day. If all days would be like this, life couldn‘t be better. I took the 1 day snorkeling tour, as my scuba experience is s bit rusty. Pickup from hotel on time, check in and gear selection done quickly. Equipment in good condition - I heard no complains - all sizes available. We left with 27 guests on one of their big boats. Got a very serious and well explained guidance on the sensitive marine eco system (and I beg everybody to respect) and a lesson in sea life with pictures. We made 3 stops, and could choose to follow our guide, or do free snorkeling. The guide was Thai and very funny. He took care of some timid guest with s lot of empathy. Tasty classic Thai buffet was served, and ample soft drinks available (all included) - but seriously what is bettet than ice cold water :-) - ok, 2x 1,5 h on a ship might not everybody‘s favorite :-). BB Divers - keep up the positive spirit! … my personal small disappointment- I didn‘t see the sea turtles - but can not blame it on the operators :-)

      Excellent and unforgettable first experience of Scuba diving at Koh Chang Island, with BB Divers and specifically with Pierre and Michael. It was a thrill to meet these two guys, passionate about diving and eager to teach and transfer their passion to everyone who want to learn & listen. I learned so many things during this 1st day of scubadiving, about the world under the water, but also about my mind and body. I would not be able to learn all of these things without the great support and trust of Pierre, who is an amazing teacher that you can trust in every situations. Just go for it and try !
      Thank you Michael for always having the word to let us laugh and relax during this great journey.
      Thank you again.

      It was my first dive ever with Pierre and Michael and I couldn’t believe I made it to dive twice given that I can’t swim! The coaches were so fun and helpful that they explained skills in an interesting way and always listened to our concerns to ensure our safety. It would be nervous at the beginning but you can definitely get used to it and be able to enjoy seeing clusters of fish and colorful corals underwater. I couldn’t be happier to dive with Pierre and Michael for their efforts to make it an incredible trip. They were always around to adjust equipments and ask if we’re okay to continue so we felt very safe with them. We ended up diving at a maximum of 8 meters and we will definitely come again for our next holidays! Thank you BB divers and our divemasters for this amazing experience! :)

      I did the Discover Scuba Diving Course from Koh Kood including one instruction course for the most important skills for diving (e.g. recovering and cleaning regulator, cleaning mask underwater,...) followed by to dives. In between the dives there was a third stop, where we could go snorkeling at Koh Rang. Our instructor Makiya did an incredible job instructing and diving with us, was very reassuring and made us feel safe all the way through. I highly recommend this course, for everyone who wants to try scuba diving.

      We had an amazing first experience with Charles and Chen. Although scuba diving can be quite stressful the first time (at least it was for me) Charles was very attentive and supportive. Thanks to both of them for making this experience a wonderful one ! The corals were very colorful and impressive as well as the large variety of fishes. We even had the chance to see a turtle !

      Just wanted to say thank you for such a memorable tour... Everything was very well organized, especially our instructor Mr. Pawel from Poland was very helpful and really tried his best to make us comfortable. All the other staff also helped my kid with snorkeling and everything. We were never hurried and were given enough time at all the sites. And lastly the boats are also very cool.

      We did our DSD with BB Divers and were really happy with it! The team was friendly and professional, seemed to know their ways around the boat and the gear exactly. They offered us a pill to prevent sea sickness (which I would highly recommend taking!).
      We were taught the basics of scuba diving aboard with great explanations and pictures, then went into the water for a few training exercises and did two dives. It was almost a one on one training so we did feel safe and well cared for. Pierre and Damien, our instructors, both did a great job. There was also a very delicious lunch served aboard as well as fresh fruits and unlimited soft drinks, water and coffee. We could use our action cam on the second dive, if you don’t have your own, you could rent from the company. It was great fun!
      Only thing that would have been nice to know before (or maybe we didn’t understand) was the fact that you are on the same boat as other, more experienced divers so sometimes you had to be aboard and wait for them to be ready or do the snorkeling in that time. All in all, would recommend this experience!
