We were really afraid as it was our first dive and before this also we had tried dive in Maldives and stopped at learning session as the trainer was very impatient and like how can you not learn fast... We did dive on conception island in marine park and saw beautiful colored fishes . Our dive was around 10m deep.... More

I pre-booked 10 dive package for me and my husband since it's cheaper. My bad!!! Won't do it ever again. When we arrived there, the owner Liz was friendly (so was our communication through e-mails). We booked three dives for the next day. She told us we can already try the bcd so we won't need to bother with it... More

We went an afternoon to check with the team for the available dives on the next day and their rate. I am a PADI-OW-diver, my husband has only done one dive in his life. Ms Manuela (a French lady) of their team told us that next afternoon they offer this and that and when we asked for the price she... More

Having not dived for 2 years, Oliver gave myself and my Daughter a refresher and when we were on the boat Ryan our dive master (young but experienced and good fun) also put emphasis on safety and once underwater made us remove our regulators and fill and then clear our masks, once he was happy we carried on and saw...

We are expierienced divers who have over 140 dives each and have dived all over the world. We dived with this team in Aug 2016 and were very disapointed with the level of proffesionalism. There was no complete briefing, a dive guide who didn't have any idea how long or deep the dive was even though we had been told... More

I booked 5 dives in advance before I arrived, which had a 10% discount. All the staff were very knowledgable and gave very good briefings. Most of they equipment is new and very well maintained. The good thing about this dive school is they have boat dives from a nearby harbour. The other dive schools seem to have boats from... More

I am an experienced diver and saw a fair share of various formats dive centers in many countries. Big Blue Divers certainly did not make the top of my list. My experience was not terrible, was even quite ok, but I witnessed and heard stories of other divers which were very disappointing. So, pros and cons. Pros: At the booking... More
