Big Blue Facebook

The Big Blue facebook page is a fantastic way for us to keep you updated on what we're up to. We regularly post about the latest activities and courses at Big Blue Tech, Big Blue Freediving, and Big Blue Conservation. We also put up any cool pictures taken by fun divers, and let you know when the next full day trip or beach clean up is happening. But we want more people to get involved and "like" us. So, while stocks last, if you're a fun diver, doing a try dive, or complete any course with us, you can claim a freebie in the form of a very handy key chain, or an environmentally sensible bag for life! All you have to do is show us that you have "liked" us on Facebook... They look cool, they're free, practical, and help the environment, so what are you waiting for!?

“Diving at its best!”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 29 August 2013- We did the open water course and felt very comfortable from the beginnig. We were only 5 students in our group and had two awesome and very competent instructors (ask for Elena and Nick, aka as "Mr. Bean" or "Nick Carter") with whom we had lots of great laughs and fun! The dives were just awesome and the visibility was perfect so that we saw swarms of colorful fish and beautiful reefs. In a nutshell, it's a must do and I can totally recommend it to everyone! Our entire group was so amazed as we all went straight on to do the advanced course, after having enjoyed our open water diploma with a couple of well deserved beers! ;)

Plastic waste
If you go anywhere in Thailand, you'll quickly notice how readily any shop will place your purchase in a plastic bag, or give you a straw for your drink. This is a big big problem on Koh Tao, if that plastic gets into the ocean, it kills. Turtles and birds have been found dead because they swallow plastic and their digestive system gets blocked. Dive resorts all over Koh Tao are constantly having to remove them from Sairee beach as they wash ashore or are left after a days sunbathing or evening of partying. So please help to reduce the use of plastic. The next time you go to any shop, especially a 7-11, either have your own re-useable bag with you, or refuse a carrier bag, and say no to a straw!!
