Big Blue Diving Resort - Koh Tao - Thailand

News 2017

The awesome divesite of White Rock

white rock300x225White Rock is located about halfway between Koh Nang Yuan and Koh Tao and is a very popular night diving destination. The site consists of two submerged pinnacles starting at 20 meters and rising up to within 2 meters of the surface. The pinnacles gently pan out into many shelves, which are covered in a healthy selection of hard and soft coral formations. As the reef slopes away you will see small blue spotted sting rays and larger Southern Rays resting on the bottom as well as Pelagics like, Jacks and Great Barracuda patrolling the depths. This great aerial shot was taken by Andreas Fisketh from Koh Tao Aquatic Images.

The SSI Stress & Rescue Course


If you are thinking of becomming a Dive Pro then you need to take your Open Water your Advanced & then your Rescue before you can enroll in the joyous experience of the Divemaster Course. The Rescue course is probably the most challenging of the non professional certifications but only takes 2 days to complete. It will expand your knowledge and experience beyond the purely recreational level because you’ll learn to look beyond yourself and consider the safety and well being of other divers. Although this course is serious, it is an enjoyable way to build your confidence. And then its time to enroll in your DM Course.

The Beautiful Island of Koh Tao

kt300x225Koh Tao. Also known as Turtle Island which is the direct translation from Thai. So called beacuse as you approach the island from the sea you can see the very distinct outline of a turtle. Helps as well that Koh Tao also has lot of resident turtles here too! Amazing to think that in this 21 square kilometer island there are over 50 Dive centers here. Must be pretty good scuba diving if theres that many centers here wouldn't you reckon.

Awesome Whaleshark Photo being considered for Nat Geo Magazine

lifeaquatic300x225Huge congrats to Dan Charity who went diving with our friends at The Life Aquatic in Samui last week! His fantastic Whale Shark picture made it in today's National Geographic Daily Dozen! The young Whale Shark was swimming in the Gulf of Thailand at a popluar dive site called Sail Rock near the island of Koh Pha Ngan. The brief encounter was was captured whilst diving the remote reef which the graceful giant was using as cleaning station, a sort of car wash for big fish. What makes this such a great shot is that while the whale shark might be moving slow, the school of fish that is surrounding the shark is moving quickly so as an underwater photographer you have to be prepared for this moment. Great work being prepared for this brief encounter.

Fingers crossed that it gets printed in the National Geographic magazine Dan!
