Big Blue Conservation - Koh Tao - Thailand

How did the swim first start out?

It all started on evening at the bar, with two Big Blue dive instructors thinking of ideas to raise awareness about shark finning. They organized a swim around Nang Yuan for them and 19 other swimmers, raising a total of 17,000 thai baht.

The swim was organized the following year, and has now become a annual event with participation from many diving locals across Koh Tao. Last year we hit a new record of 120,000 baht in donations with a total of 61 swimmers!

This year we are hoping to beat this record, and have just as many people support the cause at this year’s swim!

Where does the money go?
