Big Bubble Diving is one of the first dive schools to be established back in 1994 on Koh Tao.

Located in the southern part of the island in Chalok Baan Kao, Big Bubble has remained a family-oriented business with a relaxed atmosphere.
Big Bubble Diving has about 30 Thai style bungalows with fan or air-conditioning options on the small mountainside near the dive school. The Big Bubble restaurant is on the beach and serves Western, Thai, and Burmese dishes. There is also a small bar that serves cold beer and cocktails that are perfect for enjoying while sitting by the sea.
