Some of the best dives that we've had in a long time. We went to Koh Bon, Richelieu Rock and The Similian Islands. All three were different and beautiful. But if you go diving you must go to Richelieu Rock (Big Blue is one of two companies in Khao Lak that does a day trip). It is simply amazing with... More

I don't often write reviews as I feel most people before me have covered all the details. However, this experience inspired me to write it all down. The Hallelujah was outstanding, comfortable rooms and beds, private bathrooms, all time Air Conditioning, and electrical outlets in all rooms. Night lights were also available for reading in bed at night as I... More

We completed our open water PADI certification with instructor Anna who was the best instructor ever! We had a really bad experience with another dive centre close to Phuket where the instructor basically had no English and failed us, so we asked Big Blue to squeeze in the rest of the dives in one day and they were luckily able...
