Thanks to Daniel and Allessandro for a great day of diving around Chole Bay. Superb equipment, an excellent dive shop, 2 cool dives and a really nice relaxed atmosphere all day. Especially heading back to the beach on our beautiful Dhow under sail which was so tranquil and idyllic after a full day’s activity.

Guys, we hope the puppies are doing fine!

Dave & Bruna.

I hadn't been diving for about 14 years but the Instructor Alessandro gave me a thorough refresh and I was straight back into it.

All the staff are friendly and I almost enjoyed my time above the water as much as under it.

If you are lucky Big Blu can also organise for you to head over to the other side of the island to snorkel with Whale Sharks, I thoroughly recommend this along with Big Blu.

I can't compare as I only dived with BigBlu on Mafia Island. But the stuff is very friendly and laid-back. Also the dhow are really cool. Therefore i fully recommend BigBlu.
