We did 4 dives with big blue, great small groups, 3 the first day and 4 the next. Staff were hugely supportive as we were all pretty new to diving. The diving was great, mixture of reef and wreck dives, even got to see a couple of baby sharks. The whole team is amazing, Sam was out lead diver both... More

Had such a great time diving with Big Blue! We did a double dive during the morning and we're absolutely satisfied with the whole experience. The staff are great! We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the shop were we left for our dive. The locations that we went to were the Konanda Wreck and Kate's Corner.... More

We came to Big Blue having just finished 6 fantastic days of diving on Hideaway Island. Maybe I would have rated this higher if it wasn't in direct comparison! My biggest problem with Big Blue was the equipment. We found multiple leaking cylinders which is always a bit alarming! One of the dive masters had to pull apart the regulator... More

Awesome time we had on our morning dive/snorkel. Well organised crew with a morning pickup from resort, good briefing and two dive/snorkel spots visited. Felt well looked after by Jerry, Lu, Max and the team. Diver even went back for a night dive - another highlight of trip where turtles and Sharks were spotted.

Went snorkeling on October 20th with my wife. Just the 2 of us with our guide A.J. and 2 divers, and their guide, who were also from our cruise ship. It was a windy day so the visibility wasn't perfect, but still pretty good. Spent 45-60 minutes in the water snorkeling. It was awesome!! Saw sooooo many interesting fish and... More

These guys really do have their stuff together. My lady just wanted to snorkel and I wanted to get my PADI open water dive qualification and we managed to do both through Big Blue. Extremely professional and safety conscious, took all the necessary precautions and then took us to some of the best diving we have ever experienced. Picked us... More

Myself and my fiancé have just completed the PADI open water dive course, which Big Blue kindly arranged over 2 days to fit with our travel plans (we did the theory as elearning online). Our guide Max was excellent, very professional and enthusiastic- he managed to calm me down when I panicked on the first open water dive. The course... More

We arrived from the cruise ship and were worried about getting back to the ship on time. That was no problem for Big Blue: after our snorkelling trip, they took us directly back to the ship instead of back to the shop where we would have had to catch a land or water taxi back to the ship. Great service!... More

We did our advanced open water cert here, 5 dives plus one fun dive at the cathedral. The diving was fantastic! We dived twice with Jerry and 4 times with Madi. We were happy with the instruction and the crew, and blown away by the dive sites. A couple of minor issues, they forgot to pick us up from our... More
