Big Blue Diving Resort opened in 1991 and has remained a well-known dive establishment on Koh Tao.

Located directly on the beach in Northern Sairee nestled among coconut trees, Big Blue is a step away from the busy center of Sairee Village but within walking distance of several restaurants and bars.
However, since Big Blue has its own coffee shop, restaurant, massage parlor, and an incredible view of the sunsets, most people are content to call Big Blue their central hub. Guests can choose from beachfront bungalows with fan or air-conditioning, or they can stay in the budget bungalows a few meters away from the oceanfront. Big Blue Diving Resort has poolside rooms with fan or air-conditioning options as well as dormitories with communal washing areas.

Big Blue is well-known for its scuba diving courses. SSI scuba dive courses are primarily taught; however, some PADI courses are available as well. Training sessions are done at the swimming pool with all equipment included. The dive school also has their own boats that dock in the bay nearby, so getting started on your day of scuba diving is effortless. In addition to SSI beginner, advanced, and rescue courses, many travellers end up staying longer on Koh Tao to complete their SSI professional dive guide training or the SSI instructor course. Big Blue also has the largest Japanese-language dive school, Big Blue Chaba, and owns the retail shop Drift in Sairee village.

Big Blue Diving Resort offers a bit of everything for those looking to make the most of their holiday. The courses and activities offered can keep the curious traveler busy and content.

Along with the professional route, Big Blue also offers eco-internships. The staff at Big Blue has worked with their in-house marine biologists to develop a 1-week, 2-week, or month-long eco-internship where divers can study and learn about the marine ecosystem at the dive school’s very own house reef that has been built and maintained over the years. There are also TDI and SSI technical diving courses and freediving courses to take. Big Blue offers a bit of everything for those looking to make the most of their holiday.
