Kyle Is A boss

No words can express my love for this place. I recently completed my dive master training after having done my open water, advanced, EFR and rescue courses all at big blue. I was fortunate enough to have Tim as my instructor earlier in the year for OW and AAOW…upon my return to the island, in May, I was so pleased to see he was my instructor for both EFR and rescue! Every instructor there is truly amazing at what they do and Tim instructed in the perfect way that worked for me. He introduced me to the other instructors and really helped to make me feel at home and welcome. During my DMT I had 6 brilliant mentors, all of whom would help in any way they could. The full time dive masters were also fantastic role models and really helped to show myself and all the other DMTs the ins and outs of being a good dive master. The tech boys are one in a million, and were good enough to put up with me sitting in the tech shack for many hours on many occasions, boring them with meaningless stories and terrible jokes. The genuine highlights of my time there were the assists! Seeing the DM’s and instructors deals with all manner of situations in relaxed, confident and professional manners is really inspirational. The DMT challenge really put me through my (drinking) paces and I have Simmo to thank for making it such a fun night! (from what I remember that is). Dive at this school and you will not regret it for a second. All the instructors and DMs take the time to get to know their students and customers personally and won’t give up ANYONE. Upon completion of open water, I can guarantee the thought of continuing onto advanced will be playing on your mind. DO IT. Everything is better below 18meters! Once you do the advanced, you will be hooked. And it is safe to say, there are far worse things to be obsessed with. Obviously diving is the main attraction of this beautiful place, but in the evenings the bar is always buzzing, great food in the restaurant and once a week beer pong is held. Get involved! it is a great way to meet other people- especially if you are backpackers! Living on this island for 3months simply wasn’t long enough, so I will be back next year for the entire summer. Sorry guys, not got rid of me that quickly. Just read all of the other reviews and it speaks for its self…there is no place better than Big Blue. Happy diving!!

NEW via mobile First and foremost, gotta give a shout out to my main man Kyle (special K) and the photobomber herself: Irma. Kyle was my dive master and my oh my what a dive masterbator he was. Had the most incredible time getting my open water certification; achieved mainly thanks to the help of the friendly staff, the incredible sights and, of course, the wonderful leader that was Kyle.

If you're out there thinking about where to dive in Koh Tao, look no further. This place is the sea-breeze knees and if you're looking for an instructor, try get Kyle (he's my buoy).

Open Water Course with Kyle!!!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

What an AMAZING experience!!! I would recommend Big Blue Diving to anyone who is interested in learning to dive for the first time. I did the open water course for 3/4 days and it is now the highlight of my trip to Thailand. Kyle was a brilliant instructor!! Ask for him if you can :) I never felt nervous or unsure of anything as he explained everything so welll! During the dive he constantly made sure we were all ok which is very reassuring when your 18 metres under the water... Overall would give my experience a 10 out of 10!! :) Loved every second of it!!

Was never the most confident swimmer so was a bit nervy about diving. But when we arrived all the staff were very professional and accommodating they let us move an extra bed in to our room for our friend who had injured himself during full moon which saved us a lot of time stress and money.

My instructor was Kyle who from the get go really gave me more confidence in myself. He was very professional knew his stuff and was very patient with us all if we were struggling with anything. He also was great fun and made the experience so much more enjoyable. Most importantly we all passed our open water qualification. Big thanks to Kyle and all the big blue staff would definitely come back.

Highly recommend
