A must for anyone visiting Thailand and interested in diving.
Fun, safe and proffesional. Must go when in Koh Chang for people looking to get certified.
I cannot recommend this place enough, even in rough weather conditions and low visibility as a novice diver I felt in safe hands.
I trully believe that if you want to get certified in a tropical place, there is no better place than in BB divers Koh Chang.
My sincere thanks to Tan, Katarina, Kristel and the boat crew.

Overwhelming Experience!
Jun 2021 • Solo
Undergoing a diving course was not in my plan of staying in Koh Chang at all. But I know a friend who's diving with this dive shop and coincidentally met the dive instructor. And also found out that they offer a free trial so I decided to give it a try and purchased the course later on. After my first dive, due to the bad weather, they had to call off the rest of the dive and had me continue my dives the next day. But with miscommunication and my misunderstanding made me unable to go diving on the next day and they re-arranged my dive program professionally.Though, this was my first diving experience but I do not find anything irritating at all. The equipments are in a good condition, the staffs are nice and what I really appreciate is that my dive instructor is very dedicated. Having a dive with passionate instructor is one of a factor that make me love BB divers so much. I absolutely am seeing myself coming back here for more diving courses. If you are thinking of getting a PADI open water diver course. I highly recommend BB Divers.

จริงๆแล้วผมไม่ได้มีแผนจะมาเรียนดำน้ำที่เกาะช้างแต่ผมบังเอิญรู้จักคนที่กำลังจะไปดำน้ำกับที่นี่แล้วเจอกับครูสอนดำน้ำด้วย ก็เลยรู้ว่าที่นี่มีสอนแล้วให้ทดลองใช้อุปกรณ์ในสระฟรีก็เลยไปลองดูแล้วตัดสินใจซื้อคอร์สทันที สิ่งที่ขอบหลังจากจบคอร์สคือ อุปกรณ์ทุกอย่างรวมไปถึงตัวร้านเองอยู่ในสภาพดี แต่สิ่งที่ชอบที่สุดคือครูและสตาฟทุกคนเต็มที่กับการทำงานมาก ถ้ามีโอกาสได้กลับมาอีกก็จะใช้บริการ BB Divers อีกแน่นอน

NEW DIVER
Jan 2021
It was great!! I just finished my 3-day course and it was magnificent.

The course is intensive and thorough, encompassing a lot of information to prepare me for the open water.
On the first day, I got a lot of theory to learn including quizzes and my instructor guided me through each chapter and explains all procedures with a lot of patience and clarity. The practice sessions inside the pool are necessary to understand what you learned.
After the second day, is where the magic happened. With the knowledge that I learned, I barely felt nervous anymore when we finally entered the ocean. I now fully understand the beauty of diving and it allows me to spend more time on activities together with my girlfriend who has been a diver since 8 years now.

Special thanks, of course, goes to my dive instructor Charles. He's been my teacher, my dive buddy, and mate throughout the course. No shortcuts to finish the course, serious about the craft, but light-hearted and pretty much awesome guy.

Thank you so much BB Divers

I also recommend to go diving nowadays, less tourists and the boats are rarely filled. You will see more fish than people :)

What a great and rewarding experience !!! Tea, my instructor was very patient and pedagogue. His personalized advices were a great help for self-confidence. Otherwise the dives are well organized and the food on the boat is delicious. Moreover all the diving site are beautiful. I can only recommend this very professional structure.

Professional and fun
My friend and I did our OW with Tea and had an absolutely blast. We both had our own wobbly moments with confidence and Tea was very reassuring and helped us every step of the way. We felt very safe in his capable hands. He was incredibly knowledgeable and a good laugh too. Communication with BB in advance of our trip was good too as they used WhatsApp with us. First day in the pool was also at their lovely restaurant which had great food. Food on the boat was excellent too and they picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel daily.
I'm looking forward to diving for fun with them in the future.

Extremely Professional Diving Instruction
Jun 2020
Our three teenage children complete the 3 day Open Water Padi course in Koh Kood and we were very impressed by them. They were very professional and caring. The communication prior and during was excellent. They also helped us with other logistical issues. Our children loved the experience and are now divers for life. Would highly recommend BB Divers.

Want a PADI centre recommendation? This One!!
A fantastic experience from start to finish. Kristel and all her staff were so friendly. K. Tam our instructor was excellent, calm and patient. The boat lunch and equipment was second to none. Hannah another instructor was lovely too..We recommend this PADI centre based on our novice experience but also based on our customer satisfaction. The wreck was awesome, the coral amazing. All made possible and safe by Tam. Visit BB Lonely Beach for a great meal and chill. Check out the hydroponics. Great experience for myself and family.Thanks for the bubbles with no troubles.

Awesome first diving experience!
Oct 2019 • Couples
We had a great time at BB Divers while getting our Open Water Certification. It was very well organized, the crew was incredibly friendly and helpful and always open for questions and the food on board is delicious! Thanks to Instructor Tam we had a great theoretical introduction and first practical experience in the pool! Special thanks goes to Instructor Tea who guided us the following 2 days in a very patient and knowledgeable way and showed us the incredible sea life!

Can fully recommend BB Divers and we hope we can dive with them again some time!

We have never dived before and have made the OW with Tea. He is a very experienced diver with good humor. The first day we were in the pool at bb lonely beach. On the 2nd and 3rd day we did two dives each in the sea. The dive to the wreck was very impressive. Everything was perfectly organized: the shuttle from the hostel, the briefing before the dive and the very tasty lunch/food on the boat. We only can recommend bb divers and we will always remember our first experiences under water with bb divers.
See you next time 👌😳
