Wreck-diveThe lure of exploring sunken vessels, airplanes and automobiles is something most divers can't resist. The Wreck Diver Specialty course introduces you to wreck diving and helps you develop the skills and knowledge necessary for safe and fun wreck diving.

Here in Koh Tao we have a varied selection of wrecks ranging from old wooden fishing boats to Second World War Submarines & Battleships. In 2010 we had our first official wreck when the Trident was purposely sunk just south of Shark Island in about 30 meters depth & in 2011 the Navy were good enough to sink one of their own retired battleships in about 20 meters depth quite literally right on our doorstep here at Big Blue.



Nitrox-divingLearn now what is sure to be the future of scuba with Enriched Air diving. If you increase the amount of oxygen in your tank & thereby decrease the amount of nitrogen then you will be able to increase the length of time you can stay at your maximum depth leaving the opportunity to explore more. An essential dive certification for all serious divers.

Only 7800 Thb



First off before setting out on the Rescue Diver Course you do need to be medically trained. If you have medical training already it needs to be valid within the last 2 years & you need to bring proof of your certification with you. Otherwise we can offer you the React Right course. 

What's involved?
The React Right program can show you how to respond if someone needs help. The course provides extensive instruction in CPR and First Aid, as well as offering optional Secondary Care and Emergency Oxygen sections.

Rescue training takes you beyond the purely recreational level by expanding your knowledge and skills to assist other divers, handle problems and emergencies, and prevent those problems, leaving you with a sense of security as a diver that cannot be obtained in any other way. Rescue certification is a prerequisite for all dive professional level training.

The course makes the serious subject of accident management enjoyable and rewarding. Until now, the emphasis of your training has been you and your dive buddy; the rescue training teaches you to make diving more safe and enjoyable for others.

How much?
Only 9600 THB.

The technical diving department at Big Blue- Big Blue Tech, is run by long-term instructor Andy Campbell. The "tech shack" is located within Big Blue in Sairee village. Andy is always around to have a chat with. If you're in Koh Tao, you are more than welcome to pop in and have a chat.

What is technical diving?
Big-Blue-Tech-thailandTechnical diving is a different kind of diving that allows you to go beyond the limits imposed by diving on a single tank. You carry more gas and are therefore able to go deeper than the recreational diving limit of 40 metres. But you don't do this just for the sake of it. Some people want to explore and be able to go inside shipwrecks. Other like exploring caves. Unsurprisingly, a number of pioneering marine biologists are technical divers, as it allows them to go beyond the photic zone to collect new fish samples.

Hold your breath!
