A New Year and a Very Big Birthday Featured

Friday 15th January 201625years

The New Year has come and with it came new sets of equipment, new TVs for our new classroom and new dorm rooms. Santa saw how good we were last year and has given us some stunning visibility for this time of year which has meant we have been able to go out on our full day trips to Sail Rock, which is the very best dive site we have in the Gulf of Thailand.

Big Blue Diving is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year. 25 years ago a young Swedish boy called Michael came to Koh Tao and what he did has now changed our lives forever. That’s 25 years of certifying divers, 25 years of showing divers their first Whaleshark. 25 years of changing lives and seeing marriages and babies, 25 years of the Big Blue Staff coming and going and then coming back again for more. 25 years of Big Blue t-shirt designs that our now collector’s items for the guests who have been over the years. 25 years of boats including  Banzai, Phalap, Big Blue, Navakid, Aow Mong, Poponawa, Waverunner and Enzo. 25 years of thai beers being consumed in Deck Bar, Blue Bar and Higher Ground. 25 years of helping ginger instructors feel wanted. 25 years of riding to work on a scooter in bear feet in the sun passing coconut trees. 25 years of sunsets on Sairee. 25 years of the best dogs including Ugly, Yurie, BBD, Leo, Rocko, Schnitzel (RIP) Sausage, Moomoo, Panda, Piglet, Ernie. 25 years of being in the best job in the world and being surrounded by some of the best people you could ever dream of meeting (except some of the gingers)

I could go one but they would start to get a bit silly… to celebrate this huge birthday Robyn down at Drift has made some limited edition t shirts to celebrate this huge milestone. They will be on sale soon, so it’s time to book your holidays back to Koh Tao so you can get yourself one to add to your collection, and celebrate what already looks to be an awesome year.

Apart from the deaths of David Bowie and Alan Rickman which just sucks!
