BB divers' team
All BB instructors are Padi certified and working up to the highest standards. They come from all over the world, offering an international touch to the diving courses and the possibility to learn the diving in your own language.
Every instructor and dive master works with BB divers out of passion for diving, they have a heart for the job because teaching people how to dive can hardly be compared to just another day in the office. Most of our 'BB-ers' are travellers who started their dive training here and found their place on Koh Chang, quite many of them are local Thai who climbed the Padi ladder and became divemaster or instructor. Every year more and more familiar faces show up for a visit or a have a break from routine life. This is the magic of Koh Chang.
Next to the foreigners teaching we have some great Thai instructors and divemasters. Most of them have been trained inhouse on an internship program. With their local knowledge of the sea they are very valuable dive guides. Our mixed company of BB staff will take care of your safety on the boat and make sure to ad to the fun…
BB divers' boats
Most of our scuba dive boats are originally Thai fishing boats which were comfortably rebuild for diving. There is plenty of place for the dive equipment, space to relax for the non divers, to have a nice chat or to take a siesta on the way back from a day out. We take a dingy boat with us to the dive sites for safety.
Koh Chang has the "big boat" Blue Lagoon, licensed for 50 people and it can hold 100 tanks. It has 2 decks, we keep the dive equipment on the lower deck and have plenty of space on the topdeck to relax in the sun or find shade under the roof. The boat has a slide on it which is very popular in the lunch break, not only with the kids!
The smaller boat, "Sky Saeng" has a license for max. 30 people and carries 50 tanks, making the setup for dive equipment very comfortable and easy. The topdeck is set up with matrasses to relax on the way to the dive sites.
The boats are available for charter as well.
The "Pi Chai Yut", wooden boat with 2 decks, is used in Koh Kood. It holds 50 tanks and can take 30 people. The top deck is used for relaxing, eating, sunbathing,... and of course playing around jumping in the sea or having some fun on the slide. It offers shady spots as well. The dive equipment is set up on the lower deck.
The speedboat which is used in Koh Mak has a capacity for max. 13 persons. When the speedboat is used for diving, there will be room for 8 divers and 16 tanks. Since Koh Mak is just a short ride to the dive sites we made the choice to dive of a speedboat here, between the dives we take a small lunch on a beach. When we go out for 2 dives with a surface interval on the beach we will need half a day. On busy days we ll go out for a morning and an afternoon trip..
In Koh Mak we also have our "mini speedboat" for short trips with just 2 or 3 divers. This cute small speedboat is often chartered by families or friends to go out on a private trip around the beaches of Koh Mak, mini safari on Koh Kradat or see the lovely corals of Koh Rang National Park.
