Your Divemasters are Magic!

 Dear Jim, My wife Jenny and myself had the privilege to dive with and stay at Big Blue from the 10-18th July 2013 whilst on holiday. We want to take this opportunity to thank your staff for making us feel welcome and receiving great service during our visit.  We will certainly recommend and promote Big Blue - Koh Tao to all our club members and future students as a "must dive and stay with" - destination!  I managed to do 12 dives and Jenny did 4.  7 Staff members we would like to especially thank and commend are: Wibeke - Jenny did our research and booking/travel arrangements and was so impressed by the quick response and detailed information from Wibeke and also great website and that sold us on choosing Big Blue. Peter - What a lovely guy, - he was most friendly from the moment we met him on the pier in Chumpon and always made the time to chat to us during our stay when we saw him.  He also went out of his way to try and assist us with a bag we lost in the train station in Bangkok. Phil, Carly, and Kim, - So very helpful and lovely to chat to, dived with them all once and really helped us with lots of info etc. on the island. - Lovely bunch! DARREN & STEVEN - Wow - now these two guys are magic!!!!!  Wow - if I could poach them as DM's for myself - I would do so in a heartbeat! Had most of our dives with both of them and they really went out of their way to assist us, made the dives super special and all round just excellent DM's and great guys!!! All your staff above are huge assets to your operation!!! All our gratitude and greetings from South Africa and we will surely be visiting Big Blue in future! Kind regards, 7th Heaven Scuba.

I travelled solo & met some awesome people at Big Blue

“Rip snorter off a time”5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013 NEW - I chose big blue because off their fantastic reviews on trip advisor. I was NOT disappointed!!! When I first arrived in Koh Tao I was whisked away by the friendly big blue sangthew driver and taken to big blue 1. We were then greeted by a superb Irish instructor G and given the run through on what was going to happen next. She then arranged the sangthew driver to take us over to big blue 2 where we were to stay (very thoughtful as I had quite a load to carry). We gathered to go through the induction. G was very funny and I was hoping I was going to get here as my instructor....I did!! Yay!! Pool work and theory was informative the next day. G's enthusiasm for her job is infectious and makes you wan't to dive constantly :) dive 1 and 2 (aow leuk and hin ngam),on the third day were awesome and we all started getting more confidence in the water. Day four was fantastic, we had and early start but it was worth getting up for! Our destination was champhon this was by far one of the best dive spots I have been in the world. Visability was excellent and we had an extra buddy for the day (Barney, our camera man). We saw so many fish including a massive school of barracuda swimming along side us. Not the big one (the whale shark) like we were all hoping, but you have to be extremely lucky to get that chance.... Next time :) NR after that dive it was off to Japanese gardens (dive site 4) to have some fun with the camera and man did we have a blast!!! Brilliant instructor, excellent cinematographer, very helpful reception staff, polite and helpful bar and wait staff, food was lovely (though could have been slightly cheaper), housekeepers very kind. I travelled solo so I met some awesome people. 100% the best stay and great fun. Thank you all at big blue for the experience and memories, I WILL return :) :) Elaine

Full Moon Party- Koh Phangan

So we've had a hell of a week just gone which has completely caught us off guard. It does usually get a little busier around Full moon Party in Koh Phangan but this month has been absolutely unbeleivable. In 15 years or so On Koh Tao I've never seen it so busy. Its quieter now as the party is tomorrow night but then its all just going to completely kick off again. & will again be probably as busy as I'll ever have seen it then too! So word of warning people, if you are on your way then book ahead. Its going to be mental next week AND I can feel a Whaleshark coming on too! Full Moon Rush & Whalesharks. The ultimate recipe for success!
