Big Blue Diving Resort - Koh Tao - Thailand

News 2017

Another Whaleshark at White Rock today

dave shark2300x225Thought to have evolved 200 million years ago, one might think that humans would have had ample time to study the species, but its life history remains poorly understood, partially because it is both rare and migratory. Jacques Cousteau is reported to have observed only two whale sharks in his life and it took him 20 years just to encounter his first. He obviously never dived Koh Tao cos we're buming into 1 a day at the moment. Look at this one, taken at White Rock.

Flying with Whalesharks

freediving4300x225In recent years Freediving, also known as Breathhold Diving or Apnea has become the fastest growing water sport in the world. Records are being broken around the globe for longest time underwater, deepest depth reached on one breath & some amazing footage has been recorded of freedivers being approached by some of the biggest & most amzing underwater creatures in the world. Because there is no Darth Vader type noises as there is with Scuba Divers Freedivers get approached out of curiousity by these creatures & underwater photographers are recording some unbeleivable encounters. Well worth a go if you have time to learn. It just takes 2 days & we'll teach you how to hold your breath for longer than 2 minutes & reach depths in excess of 20 meters.

The Blue Ringed Octopus

octopus300x225So this is exciting. A marine creature thought to be only residing in the waters around Australia has recently been seen ( alot) here in the muck around Koh Tao. One of the most venomous creatures in the world the Blue Ringed Octopus tho small in size packs a punch that can kill! So no touching, as always. But they are not naturally aggressive so there is no cause for alarm and they are beautiful and very rare so getting a glimpse of these creatures is definitely worth a note in your Divelog!

Happy Songkran

songkran300x225Sawadee Pee Mai everyone. Happy Thai New Year 2017. Songkran is Thailands most famous festival. An important event on the Buddhist Calendar, a water festival marking the beginning of the traditional Thai New Year. Songkran sees the entire country go bananas in friendly water fights & street parties. So when in Rome... we water fight! Happy Thai New Year.

Whaleshark! It's a great season for Big Spotty Fish!

whale shark1300x225More Whalesharks than you can throw a stick at this week with sightings at Chumphon Pinnacle, Southwest Pinnacle Shark Island Sail Rock & White Rock! April it is typically Whaleshark season here in Koh Tao so we haven't been let down! And bearing in mind May & June are usually pretty good months for Whaleshark sightings too it looks like we could be in for a very successful Whaleshark season. Fingers & Fins crossed!
