Profile: https://www.rateyourdive.com/profiles/jonathan-parr/

The rateyourdive users are convinced of his skills:

  • “Chartered a private boat through Sunrise Divers. Jonathan was our dive master and he made the trip extremely comfortable and fun. It was evident that Jon spent some time planning to make the best (fun and safe) dive trip for us. He was very knowledgeable of the chosen locations and was very thorough with our dive plan. “ (David Jensen)
  • “I signed up for a refresher course after not diving in almost 2 years. Jon patiently helped me get back my skills in no time. Great time out and great company. I’ll definitely hit him and Sunrise Divers up next time I come diving in Thailand.” (Sam)
  • “Jonathan was extremely knowledgeable and conscientious of the tides and currents, and he gave us the option to change our original plan so we had the most enjoyable experience. Although we still encountered some strong currents, the dives were exciting and I felt comfortable the entire time.” (Ashley Stevens)

The rateyourdive users recommend that Dive Center:

  • „Went to Koh Tao for 5 months, mainly to do my divemaster course. By recommendation i took a chance on Big Blue diving and I don´t regret it, for sure. The staff that educates students and bring costumers out on the fun dives are proffessional, fun and exprerienced. They live for showing you the great things of scubadiving and a lot of costumers stays for longer time than they planned. And Big Blue ain´t just a dive school- it´s a social institution with their family vibe, restaurant and bar down by the beach. Big Blue have a big spot in my heart and I still refer to “us at Big Blue” even if I´m back at my job in Sweden. I´d recommend Big Blue anyday of the week!“ (Therese)
  • “God, what an experience! I had the absolute best time at Big Blue. I spent a couple of months on Koh Tao doing my dive master, and over that time the BB team absolutely became a second family. I has a ball doing my DMT, learnt so much and came away with a whole bunch of new mates. Special shoutout to Ant, who was my mentor and an all round absolute legend. Go and dive with these guys. You won’t regret it.” (Lauren)
  • “I had been recommended this place and was absolutely not disappointed !! From the second I got there right to the end was just a constant laugh and an experience I will never forget ! Had one of the best weeks of my travelling life. Was lucky enough to be taught by the one and only Ant, and have the best group to learn to dive with. The teaching they give you is second to none and make sure your safe and definately having fun along the way,. I can’t recomend this place highly enough, the staff, the atmosphere and coming away with an amazing new skill, I even went back to do my ad advanced course coz I just couldn’t stay away. So thankyou so much to everyone there at Big blue and a special thanks to Ant for putting up with us haha !!” (Katy)
