Big Blue Diving Resort - Koh Tao - Thailand

News 2017

Post monsoon Beach Clean up collective

ecoclean300x225A huge thank you to all those that participated in our latest community eco day yesterday with mountains of trash collected from the streets and the ocean. Not really a surprise to pick up quite as much garbage as we did this clean up especially bearing in mind the torrential rain storm we had at the beginning of the month. So thank you everyone for coming and good job from Rachel our Manager at Big Blue Conservation for organising the Diveshops collective in coming together to generate a bigger taskforce of garbage collectors. Act locally, think globally.

Sun of a beach!

calm300x225And as you were! The rain has stopped & the floods have eased and very quickly we are able to restore relative normality back on Koh Tao after the dreadful downpour we’ve had over the last week. We are able to go diving again & surprise surprise its actually nowhere near as bad as we first feared. Visibility though not great aint bad with the closer to shore dive sites at les than 10meter viz but the further divesites are 10meters +. The sea is relatively flat & January is beginning to look a little more like January should! The island infra structure has taken a bit of a beating but luckily for us at Big Blue we seem to have escaped all the damage. Got to put it out there aswell to all the tourists who were here for the rough ride you were awesome. Completely understanding, no complaints & pitched in to help the local community with clean ups & sandbag filling. Thank you so much. Bet you didn’t anticipate shovelling sand into sand bags when you booked your holiday on a sunsoaked tropical island paradise did you. Thanks guys.

Big Blue Diving Khao Lak

hallelujah300x225Koh Tao might not be your first choice of holiday destination right now. With all this rain we have taken a bit of a battering here. Luckily at Big Blue we’ve escaped most of the damage and as soon as the rain does actually stop it’ll only take us a few hours to get things back to ship shape, but the rest of the island… well it aint good. Mother Nature sure is a powerful beast!

So what are you going to do instead? Well our recommendation is Khao Lak on the west coast of Thailand. Big Blue Diving Khao Lak offers 4 day 4 night Liveaboard trips aboard one of the largest boats MV Hallelujah. An amazing experience cruising through the beautiful Similan & Surin Islands. A holiday of a lifetime. Contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to book your place now.

All the small things

filefish300x225So the weather in the region hasn’t been the greatest but because Koh Tao is such a small speck in the Gulf of Thailand we’ve managed to escape most of the precipitation. But not all! And with the heavy downpours & strong winds it does effect the visibility underwater which for this time of year is pretty disappointing. However having said that when the visibility reduces like it has it’s a great opportunity to focus on the smaller marine life we get here in Koh Tao and not just swim past as we cruise the divesites acknowledging their presence but actually spend time checking out these creatures & their habits. Like these Baby strapweed filefish aging at the buoyline of Twins... aren't they cute! Thanks Fishual Diving for this awesome shot.

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!
