My girlfriend and I have been at Big Blue diving for a week. I did the SSI open water and advanced course there. This was really one of the most exciting experiences in my life. The instructors that I dealt with during the courses (Liam, Mike and Erin) where all outstanding and the diving sites are really cool. The equipment... More

Myself and three friends stayed in Big Blue last week and we had a brilliant time! The diving instructors were fantastic! So approachable and really made the whole experience as enjoyable as possible. We did the "try dive" and I couldn't recommend it enough for anyone who isn't sure if diving is their thing, it gives you a good feel... More

Mark was our instructor and he was the nicest most patient person ever and he helped us learn how to dive in a really comfortable and fun environment. We stayed in the accommodation for one night and it was really close... More

I absolutely loved my time at Big Blue last week. Although I had never planned to go diving during my trip, through recommendations from fellow travellers and pure luck, I ended up doing their SSI Open Water Diver course. Our group was fortunate to have two instructors, Simon and Reiss, who are unequivocally the two best diving instructors I've ever... More

Fantastic Crew, great diving school and a really enjoyable way to get your scuba licence. Not as competitively pricedas other diving schools but still great value for money.

The first dive was ment to teach us the basic of diving and to get used to the gear and the second dive was a pure fun dive. Our dive instructor,... More

Really great dive school-- wouldn't have been the same without Luke as the instructor. Only downside is that the wifi is absolute crap. Needed to book a flight and couldn't even connect long enough for it to go through. So just prepare for a few days without wifi

We went here just one night, but still talking about it. The service was great; the waiter was funny, everyone's English was good and they were friendly. Furthermore, the food was amazing. We had a tasty Panam curry, and the Western food like fish and chips and pasta tasted just like resp. in the UK and Italy. And I would... More
