Time Out Explorers- Asia's Top 50 Shorts Breaks

We just can't stop getting printed this month! Another article on Koh Tao this time in London Town's Time Out Magazine with a feature about Diving gadgets. Written when our own SSI Instructor Trainer Tosh was the writers Instructor, though unfortunately he was working at another shop at that time but as we all know he has seen the light since those days of immaturity & prepubescence & came & joined us at Big Blue & hasn't looked back since now spearheading Asia's largest SSI Instructor Training Center. Keep your eyes out for this issue of Time Out Explorer- Asia's Top 50 Short Breaks. 

A One-2-One Scuba Refresher at no extra Cost

“Happy to be in the water again”5 of 5 starsReviewed on Trip Advisor August 7, 2013-I had been to Koh Tao a number of times and had done my open water and advanced certification here as well, but not at Big Blue. As I had a bad experience diving elsewhere in the world I had gone back to my initial shop to see if they would be able to help me get over my fear for diving. Unfortunately they were short on dive-masters and could only offer me a refresher course with a group. We then went to Big Blue and told the same story again. In stead of the big group they offered a 1-on-1 refresher at no extra cost. I had all the time in the world to do my skills and get familiar with the diving again. The next day we did a fun dive, and since they had remembered my initial issues, they had made sure that me and my friend were the only two diving with one dive master, so in case I needed more time, that would not be a problem. I am happy to say that at the end of the 2 days I felt comfortable in the water again, thanks to the patience shown by the Big Blue staff! 

2013 Swim For Sharks raises 5000USD for shark conservation around Koh Tao

This years Swim for sharks was an even bigger success than we had even anticipated with an incredible 135000 Bt raised by our Eco arm Big Blue Conservation & most notably our very own Green Queen & in House Marine Biologist Jennifer Matthews. Jen started off the day with a very informative lecture on Sharks & their reproductive cycles & then almost 70 people came along for the extremely challenging 3.4 km swim (in bloody big waves ) around Nang Yuan Island. The winner this year was a stranger to us! A weary traveller who just happened to be here at the right time & whipped the favourites (Nick Bufton) ass by 3 minutes. After the exhausting & gruelling swim around Nang Yuan it was free Barbie & music from our very own DJ's Mix Masters DJ DM Dazza Milsom & legendary Las Vegas Inked celebrity Mr John Huntington. AN awesome night, & a lot of money raised. Thanks again to all those who contributed & especially Eco Jen. Those sharks owe you a debt of gratitude!
