BIG OCEAN DIVE
We are Big Ocean Dive – a PADI 5 Star Dive Center based in Kuala Lumpur. Our centre was founded in 2015 by Malaysian-born American Michael Grossman, who started diving at the age of 15. He began his career as a commercial diver working in the United States, eventually finding his calling as a dive instructor. In 2017, Michael teamed up with his Brit buddy Tim Warburton, who he met in Portland as commercial divers. This dynamic duo has a passion for diving that keeps them hungry with the goal of turning Big Ocean Dive into the best dive centre in Asia.
We offer scuba diving, freediving, and swimming courses from beginners to instructors and dive trips around Southeast Asia. We pride ourselves on our 100% safety record, personal touch, and on keeping things fresh with new courses and trips. Each year, we certify hundreds of new amazing divers, including families and children. We also take them to some of the coolest and most exciting diving destinations around Asia. From Malaysia to Bali and even the Maldives!
In 2015, Mike moved back home to KL to open his dream scuba business “Scuba Mike’s Dive Co. & Brand”, which is now Big Ocean Dive. His passion is teaching scuba students to become the best divers they can and he’s known for his ability to put his students at ease with his friendly and student-centric teaching style.
In 2005 Tim became a PADI Instructor and split his time between working in the UK and overseas. He’s an explorer who loves travelling the world to dive! As of 2020, he has logged over 1,500 dives. Tim is a British Citizen, now residing in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
