Big Blue Tech

intro to tech big blue tech technical diving TDI

The boys at Big Blue Tech are out teaching day three of TDI intro to tech today. The three day course teaches the core skills required of technical divers, allowing them to progress on to more demanding TDI courses; advanced nitrox and decompression procedures. They will be working on kit configurations, dive planning, and emergency skills, and will also need- and get, lots of buoyancy practice, as this is initially very challenging compared with the feel of recreational diving equipment. Lets also not forget the final "hell" dive, where the students are put under pressure with gas loss scenarios and entanglement issues! Very testing on the student, great fun for the teacher! So if you want to challenge yourself, have a lot of fun, and learn valuable new skills that will also benefit you in your recreational diving, and you don't miind being taught by a Northerner, contact James and Ian at Big Blue Tech.

“Simply awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 September 2013- I came to Koh Tao for an open water diving course and mainly because of the lonely planet decided to go here. The vibe of the resort and on the boats is really great and the instructors are very good at what they do. My instructor was Rich and he was really good at getting the most fun out of every dive. I ended up staying two days longer to do my advanced as well and have no regrets. Especially the night dive was great fun (got to see a turtle swim right over us).

Koh Panghan Airport

Construction of an airport on Koh Panghan- Thailand's fifth-largest island, has stepped up a pace, with developers announcing their aim to complete the project by 2014. Historically it was always difficult and time consuming travelling to Koh Samui, Koh Panghan and Koh Tao, with fishing boats being the only method of transport. Then slow ferries came along which made the journey slightly less agonising, but it wasn't until the Lomprayah, Songserm & Seatran ferries, and the airport at koh Samui came along that access to these beautiful Islands became more comfortable. The airport at Koh Panghan will have a knock on effect for Koh Tao, making it much easier for people to travel from Bangkok to the Gulf of Thailand. The only thing that will be missing is the train tunnel from Koh Tao to the mainland!
