Big Blue Diving Resort - Koh Tao - Thailand

News 2017

When is the best time of year to go diving in Thailand?

minke300x225It's got to be the most often asked question. What is the best month to go diving in Thailand? And the answer is in February. Not just here in Koh Tao but also over on the West coast if you fancy a visit to the Similan Islands. And the reason why February is so good? Well apart from the weather being reliably fantastic with clear blue skies & constant sunshine, its a great month for visibility & when it comes to marinelife encounters we got Whalesharks, large schooling pelagics, & if you're lucky we often have encounters with pilot whales, minke whales & if you're really lucky we've even had sightings of Blue Whales. On the west coast we get all of the above & mantas. Not bad eh? Which is why February is probably the best month of the year to go diving in Thailand. Check out these Minke's spotted yesterday in the Similans. Photocredit goes to Mr amazing Walter G. Schmit onboard Khao Lak Scuba's awesome liveaboard boat Manta Queen 2.

Whaleshark for breakfast.

big blue diving day tours300x225Only one way to really get your day off to the perfect start & thats by diving with a Whaleshark. The top of the list of any divers wish list is an underwater encounter with these amazing creatures & here in Koh Tao we are lucky enough to get to dive with these guys on a very regular basis. Conditions at the moment are perfect & with the full moon at present as well we anticipate this beast hanging out with us for quite a few days. Big Blue Diving- we've been making divers dreams a reality since 1991.

Ever thought about becomming a Rescue Diver

Rescue1300x225Being a Rescue Diver. It evokes mental images of you jumping from helicopters into frigid waters like Kevin Costner in The Guardian. While becoming a rescue diver won't make you a virile hunk from Hollywood, it can be a challenging and rewarding experience.

Rescue training takes you beyond the purely recreational level by expanding your knowledge and skills to assist other divers, handle problems and emergencies, and prevent those problems, leaving you with a sense of security as a diver that cannot be obtained in any other way. Rescue certification is a prerequisite for all dive professional level training.

The course makes the serious subject of accident management enjoyable and rewarding. Until now, the emphasis of your training has been you and your dive buddy; the rescue training teaches you to make diving more safe and enjoyable for others.
During this course, you'll learn how to foresee, prevent and manage potential diving accidents; from assisting a tired diver to handling possible emergency scenarios, you'll practise applying the knowledge and skills that can make the difference in the unlikely event that problems do arise.
You must be an Open Water Diver and have recognised CPR certification, such as the Emergency First Response , within the past two years. You may be asked for proof of logged dives. Big Blue provides all equipment, boat trips, etc., for the duration of the course.

 

Which is Koh Tao's best Divesite?

malin300x225Located between Koh Tao & Koh Phangan Sail Rock rises out of the water creating the best wall dive in the Gulf of Thailand, with a maximum depth of 40 meters. The wall is covered in soft sponges along with many oysters and clams clinging to the craggy surface. The site is best known for it's naturally formed rock 'chimney' home to hundreds of little white eyed moray eels, where you can enter an opening at 18 mtrs and ascend inside the rock with your buddy and exit at 10 mtrs. A few Meters away from the wall, schools of batfish and jacks huddle together in the slight current. Most divers come here in the hope of seeing whale sharks, or bull sharks which are frequently sighted in season, whilst the rest of the year divers swim surrounded by schools of pelagic fish patrolling the depths. Yesterday we were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the fastest fish in the sea elusive Blue Marlin.You never know what you're going to bump into at Sail Rock which is the reason Sail Rock is not only Koh Tao's most interesting Divesite but also Koh Tao's most exciting! Come join us on our next Full Day Trip to the awesome Divesite.
