Big Blue Diving Resort - Koh Tao - Thailand

News 2017

Ciao Patrone

Ernie300x225We are very proud of our teams of Instructors & Divemasters here at Big Blue. Generally every member of staff at Big Blue has under some form or other undergone rather vigorous training whether it be in the form of alearning through a course with us, or an internship, so that with the guidance of one of our existing high performance educators they truely get to learn the ropes. The how's why's & what's of the system at Big Blue if you like. This way the candidate can truely make the decision as to whether they want to work at Big Blue or not & we can tell too as to whether the applicant is of the exceptional quality we are looking for in our staff with regards to character, professionalism, knowledge & amicability. And so it goes with pretty much all our Instructors & our Divemasters. Its extremely rare we employ from outside this framework but if we do you can bet your booties its cos we've struck gold. & with Ernie, We struck gold! 5 very happy years at Big Blue for him & us in which he won Big Blue Diving's staff awards in the form of Best Dive Staff, Best Instructor & the prestigious Instructors Choice Award for 2016. In his time with us he also recieved SSI's highest honour with the Platinum Pro 5000 Award. A true Spanish legend. So it is with great sadness we bid our amigo adios as he heads to Mexico for new adventures and from all of us at Big Blue we wish you all the best for your future & thank you for everything you have done for all us in the past 5 years. Adios Muchacho, you will be sorely missed.

Koh Tao Officially the most frequent place in the world for Whaleshark sightings

OPW 22 11 16 Sonia Reiss300x225Well the surveys complete & the results are in! The best locations throughout the world to swim & dive with Whalesharks are finally revealed. Apparently Koh Tao comes in 5 months a year as the one of the top 5 & those month are March, April, May, September & October. Bearing in mind that we have had on average this year so far an average of 1 sighting a week so far for 2017 I'd say Jan & Feb weren't too far off the top 5 either! And bearing in mind we had 30 days of Whalesharks last November then I reckon November must have just been overlooked. But anyway 6 months a year aint bad & officially it makes Koh Tao the most frequent location to swim & Dive with Whalesharks througout the year worldwide! Better book your ticket hey!

Koh Tao Eco Day, cleaning up the rubbish at Hin Wong.

cleanup300x225Another succesful day for the Koh Tao Eco Day which involved a whole heap of volunteers from various Diveshops around the island all getting together & heading to one part of the island to clear the place of trash both on the land & in the water. With Big Blue Conservations leadership this time we headed over to the East coast of the island to the beautiful Hin Wong Bay. Managed to collect so much rubbish that it actually took us 4 truck loads to remove all the rubbish up to the Garbage heap. I would like to add here that 90% of that rubbish has been floating in the sea for god knows how long and has over time drifted its way to Koh Tao & washed up on the beach or in the bay & originates from the mainland or the other islands in the Gulf. Of course some of that rubbish does originate from Koh Tao I'm sure, but I dont want you thinking its all us. Cos it aint!
