And its with great sadness that we bid farewell to one of Koh Tao's longest serving Dive Instructors, a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer, an SSI Dive Control Specialist Trainer, an EFR Instructor Trainer & a DAN Oxygen Instructor Trainer Steve Read who very sadly herniated a disc in his spine last month & has now been told he cannot dive anymore. So sadly Steve has had to quit our team of Instructors & Divemaster Mentors and will be found still on Koh Tao working at one of the islands leading medical clinics. So tonight we will be holding a small party for Steve & hopefully raise a bit of cash to help Steve out with his astronomical medical bill coming his way. Tonights theme is a medical one so expect lots of girls in skimpy nurses outfits, lots of guys in skimpy nurses outfits, a few buckets & an awful lot of hangovers tomorrow. Cheers Steve for all your hard work over the years & don't forget to pop by & buy us a round next time you find yourself here at Big Blue. All the best mate.

“Good diving - Excellent atmosphere”5 of 5 stars Reviewed on Trip Advisor March 13, 2013 - We Just finished a week on Ko Tao , staying at Big Blue 2 which is a bit more quiet than big blue 1 and dived nearly every day. You get a discount on accommodation when diving. Corinna did her Open Water with instructor Anke and was more than happy about the profund training and good instructor - you feel very well looked after which is extremely important when diving first time. It did lots of fun dives and enjoyed the good group atmosphere. Big Blue managed to grow big but still keep that familiar feeling you need among divers. Look out for John - crazy but lovely DJ-dive-master. For sure you will have fun and great dives! Thanks! 
 
The self proclaimed 'Best Divemaster in the World' was interviewed yesterday by ASEAN Tripper Magazine, an English magazine published & distributed in Bangkok with a readership of over 200,000 readers traveling the country every month. Celebrity stardom has gone straight to Stevens' head now so we've been left with no choice but to bring him down a peg or two by pointing out how much more rotund Steven has become in the last few weeks. In fact that when his girlfriend sent him a care package from England last month he couldn't even fit into his new Doraemon Boxer shorts! Luckily though Steven isn't able to eat chocolate anymore cos his false teeth keep coming out! Apparently when the magazine comes out next month they're going to have to print his article over a double page spread in order to fit his photo on! Eyes out for the April issue of ASEAN Tripper Magazine. The truth is out there! The world's Best Divemaster is a toothless chocolate addicted Asian equivalent of Mr. Blobby!
