Big Blue Diving Resort - Koh Tao - Thailand

News 2017

All the small things

filefish300x225So the weather in the region hasn’t been the greatest but because Koh Tao is such a small speck in the Gulf of Thailand we’ve managed to escape most of the precipitation. But not all! And with the heavy downpours & strong winds it does effect the visibility underwater which for this time of year is pretty disappointing. However having said that when the visibility reduces like it has it’s a great opportunity to focus on the smaller marine life we get here in Koh Tao and not just swim past as we cruise the divesites acknowledging their presence but actually spend time checking out these creatures & their habits. Like these Baby strapweed filefish aging at the buoyline of Twins... aren't they cute! Thanks Fishual Diving for this awesome shot.

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!

Koh Tao - 8th best location in the world for Night Diving

uv300x225Not a bad accolade when it comes to the "in the world accolade" but this years top 10 in the world for best night dives, Koh Tao has come 8th according to a readers Poll in Scuba Diving Magazine the no 1 read for Scuba Divers in the know. The actual reason given for the award wasn't actually for the magnificence of Koh Taos underwater night life but actually for the uniqueness on offer in Koh Tao of the UV Night Dive, also called a Fluo Night Dive. We descend with specialized High Intensity Blue lights in combination with a special vizor this dive light allows us to see marine fluorescence. Not only do the corals around you radiate a spectrum of the brightest fluorescent colors but so too does the aquatic life. Moray eels, crabs and tiny shrimps display flashes of a bright fluorescent yellow and scorpion fish luminesce with pink.
