uv300x225Not a bad accolade when it comes to the "in the world accolade" but this years top 10 in the world for best night dives, Koh Tao has come 8th according to a readers Poll in Scuba Diving Magazine the no 1 read for Scuba Divers in the know. The actual reason given for the award wasn't actually for the magnificence of Koh Taos underwater night life but actually for the uniqueness on offer in Koh Tao of the UV Night Dive, also called a Fluo Night Dive. We descend with specialized High Intensity Blue lights in combination with a special vizor this dive light allows us to see marine fluorescence. Not only do the corals around you radiate a spectrum of the brightest fluorescent colors but so too does the aquatic life.

Drift by Big Blue Diving- Koh Tao's Number One Retail Store

Tshirts300x225Famous for our awesome dolphin logo we sell more T-shirts than most Dive shops put together. In fact the reason our Retail Center Drift exists is due to public demand. We had people from all over Koh Tao come buy a T-Shirt from our diveshop. Then we realised that people were buying our caps, Board shorts & bikinis too just because of the logo. So we opened a retail store in Sairee Village high street focused on beach wear featuring our dolphin logo. It was an instant success & is now Koh Tao's number One Retail store for beach wear & watersport accessories. So keep up with demand we produce a lot of different T-shirts every year. Here's our latest effort. What do you guys think of our new t-shirt designs? A lovely underwater number with a beautiful sea snake and a sunset view of our tech boat Big Blue. The guys at Drift by Big Blue never let us down. Let us know what you think of our latest offering.

Predicting Whalesharks for the next few days

waynesws300x225Well we're getting pretty good at his now for predicting how long the whalesharks will hang around for. Dived with one for 2 days on the trot & my money s on a t least another 2-3 days more. Conditions are perfect. Great visibility, slight ocean currents & lots of plankton all make for a good pit stop for these huge ocean travelling beasts of the deep. And then of course when they do finally head off chances are we will bump into them again at one of Koh Tao's other awesome dive sites most predictably, Green Rock, then White Rock, round the corner to Shark Island, off to Sothwest Pinnacle & probably the last place we'll see them as they head off on their great adventure will be Sail Rock. Awesome creature, awesome divesites, awesome Dive center!
