I can't dive but had a wonderful time with these guys snorkelling. The boats and gear were good, the lads friendly and efficient and the reef amazing! More live coral and an abundance of fish with perfect visibility than I have seen in other popular tourist sites.

I hold advanced open water certification and did 6 boat dives over 3 days. The quality of service and professionalism is first class. The dive sites varied form deep to shallow, wrecks to coral reefs. The boat was specially designed for diving and the staff above and below water made to feel comfortable and confident in their skills. Plus -... More

my third holiday diving with these guys.Finally got out to the cathedral even with a swell running, the old masters Luarky and Gerry took us in and out with no fuss and a great dive. I would trust these guys to take me through hell and out again. Always interesting sites, straight down the line pre dive checks and briefings... More

A great refresher in the safety of a pool with friendly, confident staff. And then out into the big blue bay for a dive to see the water world. What a delight to return to the depths in safe and friendly company.

As I working dive instructor I like to think I can spot a quality operation. These guys have it. Facilities, staff, boat and especially dive sites. I brought a group for a days diving recently and would like to pass on everyone's thanks for an amazing day of diving. Cathedral was just sublime :-)

Our group had already booked a 10 dive package at HideAway Island (which was amazing in itself) but decided to spend an extra day checking out a different area of Port Vila with Big Blue. Most of us did 3 dives - The Cathedral, Konanda (wreck), and Twin Bommies - and it was absolutely worth it. Not only were the... More

I went for a five this afternoon with Big Blue Dive. I hadn't dived for 10 years and Lu and AJ looked after me very well. I have done most of my dives in the Great Barrier Reef. They took me to the Bommie and we saw lots of fish and clams and 2reef sharks. I would highly recommend them.

Mike sold me my 6 dive package. He is easy to deal with. I was picked up at my motel and taken back to it later in the day. The dive sites were not very damaged by divers or storm that I could see. It has recovered since the cyclone of March 2015. I liked the shallow dives around the... More

I managed 9 dives in 4 days with Big Blue and can't speak highly enough of everyone I came in contact with. I won't call anyone out specifically because I'm sure I'd miss someone. Safety standards are great, plenty of choice of dive sites, the crew are very knowledgeable and go out of their way to ensure you get the... More
