Fantastic Days on Koh Tao

“Big Blue Diving Open Water”5 of 5 stars Reviewed on Trip Advisor August 1, 2013 - Came to Koh Tao back in April and couldn't have been more happy with my choice in Big Blue. It came with numerous recommendations from friends met along the way and I wasn't disappointed. The instructors were incredibly knowledgeable and a lot of fun, always there to help you and they help to create a fun and infectious atmosphere when on the course and dives. Our instructor was Iain who is a top bloke, pushed us through the skills and learning quickly efficiently - definitely ask for Iain if you can! look out for the Scottish accent - was great to hear about how he became an instructor and why he chooses to live & work on Koh Tao. was always up for a beer after the diving. Big Blue threw in free accommodation for my 4 day open water SSI course which was a great bonus and I was very happy with the dorm, 1 minute walk from the sea and the bar/restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed the course and was very very close to staying on for the advanced course along with my group, however couldn't stretch the budget! Until next time. A definite highlight of my trip to south east asia and was made even better by the video that you have the chance to watch and buy after your 3rd and 4th dives on the final day. Will always be able to watch and remember those fantastic days on Koh Tao.
