Great value for Thailand dive boat experience

Richelieu rock had an abundance of sea life and good color. There were however a lot of divers and it was less than an average day (5 boats total vs 10) this made it harder to enjoy than some other locations around the world where the number of divers and boats are restricted. Staff were all extremely helpful and friendly.

Fabulous trip for our first liveaboard experience.

Beautiful coral gardens in crystal clear waters of Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, abundance of sea life in Richelieu Rock. Having a responsible guide for just 2 of us who are novice divers.

Great Liveaboard

We stayed in the deluxe room and found the room to be comfortable, air-con works fine and there's always hot water to warm you up after diving. I think the dive guides and Thai crew really make the trip. I had a bad experience on my last dive trip in another country and left me feeling very nervous. I communicated this to our Dive Guide, Boots, who is very understanding. Over the past few days he basically nursed my confidence back and seems to be genuinely happy when I finally got it back. In short, best dive guide I ever had. The rest of the dive guides are always open for a chat about underwater life and its apparent they are there because of their love for diving. The Thai crew was excellent. The Thai dive crew ensure we came in and out of the water safely and in a timely manner. The kitchen and housekeeping crew churn out the most amazing Thai and Western food. My room was also usually cleaned by the time we returned after the first dive of the day. Overall, I think this liveaboard has got it right and is very good value for money. I will definitely be back to dive with them again in the future.

Ric and his team have the right blend of relaxation and organization to make this a brilliant trip. The range and mix of challenging and more gentle dive sites worked very well. The local crew were always friendly, the food exceptional and the accommodation clean and comfortable. Well done and keep up the good work!

Fantastic liveaboard- the one to choose

Its odd to say that the food is the highlight of a diving trip, but with Big Blue it is amazing. The staff and crew are also incredibly friendly and accommodating, I cannot recommend this trip, boat and company enough!
