Spring Cleaning

In the ever changing landscape of social networks like MyFace and SpaceBook it can be quite easy to get left behind. Not us, though! Here at Big Blue we're doing some late summer, early autumn, pre-winter spring-cleaning of our online accounts so that they're are all shiny and user friendly! It's called "brand alignment" apparently. As well as emails, snail mail, and phonecalls, you can also stay in touch with us on:

  • Facebook - our biggest network, for all the latest student photos, diving videos, full day trips, and of course not forgetting the regular updates of "which style dress Simon Garrity is wearing in this photo?"
  • Twitter - Follow @BigBlueDivingKT for regular updates on diving conditions, local weather, news & features, all in 140 characters or less!
  • Google  - For those not on Facebook who still like to stay in touch, or for those fancy people on both Facebook and G , we'll be posting the latest videos, pictures, and news direct to the Big Blue page.

So get liking, following, and adding us to circles. Keep an eye out in the very near future as we'll be running some contests to get your hands on some much sought-after Big Blue merchandise!

“Best Dive Team On Koh Tao!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 11 September 2013- This place is AWESOME. You have half a million options of shops to dive with on koh tao, and these guys are by far the best. Great equipment, comfy boats, cheap open water courses, cheap dives, great food, fire spinning every night, knowledgeable staff, better than anything I coulda asked for. For me what really makes a dive shop are the people who lead you. Since all the divesites will be the same no matter what company you book with, having skilled divemasters who know how to find hidden sea creatures, know the names of EVERYTHING in the sea, know the animals swimming patterns (we saw a WHALE SHARK today. TWICE. Only because our divemaster knew the way they swim, we were able to get up close to the majestic animal.), and are cheerful, fun and funny people. This place has all that in spades. Special shout out to James who knew a ton about whale sharks and steven who's a funny, practical, and smart dive guide.

More good news for sharks
Following recent news that a number of Hong Kong airlines have banned the import of shark fins, now the Hong Kong Government has joined in! They have announced a ban on shark fin soup at Government sponsored events in order to "set a good example". They have also banned Government employees from consuming shark fin soup at functions hosted outside of Government! Now considering that Hong Kong is the global hub of shark fin imports, this is a big deal! Big Blue Conservation will be watching events closely to see what else gives in the coming months. In the meantime we'll continue to educate all our fun divers, open water students, and dive professional trainees about conservation and being a responsible diver that also sets a good example.
