Since 1997 Big Blue Unlimited has developed the most comprehensive, innovative and "small group" water sports and Eco-adventure program in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Our adventures include scuba diving, kayaking, stand-up paddle-boarding, kite-boarding, snorkeling, biking and cultural Eco-tours. The main base is on Providenciales, but our trips span the entire breadth of the Turks and Caicos archipelago. The Ocean is our inspiration, exploring is our passion and innovation is our trademark. For over 18 years Big Blue Unlimited has continued to set the standards in adventure across the Turks & Caicos Islands and has never wavered from its core philosophy that 'less is more'

Great Kayaking Tour. Great Kite-Boarding Lessons. More Personal & Less Touristy than others.

If you have read my other reviews, you know they are long and very detailed – the way I like to see reviews when I’m researching places on line, so I apologize in advance. And if you don’t want to read the whole thing – the take home points are that we did an eco-kayak tour of the mangroves with... More

My daughter and I decided to do the kayaking eco tour- I have never kayaked before so we took a 2 person boat and my daughter led the way. We were with 2 other couples and our tour guide Odessa. We learned abt T and C and spent a lot of time exploring the mangroves. It was a wonderful day... More

Went on a 1/2 day private boat trip with Lynn and Odessa. Lynn, our captain, was very knowledgable and gave us lots of info about the islands. Odessa was a great snorkeling guide. I swear he could hold his breath for what seemed like minutes! We were a family of 6 (2 seniors, 2 adults, 2 children) and I felt... More

We took two trips with Big Blue. One was a combination snorkeling/Iguana Island/private island visit. The crew (Alvardo and Dervin) were so warm and professional. We had a small boat to ourselves, and we had the trip of a lifetime. On another day, we took a kayaking trip, and our host was Odessa. Again, he was so kind and patient,... More

My husband and I did the 1/2 day kayak Eco Tour yesterday. They picked us up at the hotel and brought us to their base in Leeward. FYI: they stress the importance of biodegradable sunscreen and sell it there. We purchased a small 30 spf for $19. You can definitely find it cheaper elsewhere. Our guide gave us a history... More

EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT day. We chartered a boat after having a really bad experience with another outfit. So SO glad we did! Mark (our captain) was extremely knowledgeable and took us to fantastic sites, beaches and the boys even got to "free dive" - best day so far. Odessa (our first mate) entertained the boys - which gave us a break... More

This was great. Very early in the morning, but turned out better as the sun wasn't beaming yet. We did SUP for the first time. The quick introduction was priceless. Nice little tour of the mangroves. You can see some fauna swimming freely in the water, but it is not a guarantee, as these are animals in the wild, not... More

Excellent and safe diving. They were a full service company. There was NO rush to get in the water. Everything was safe slow comfortable. I believe this was possible because our groups were at most 6 people. Given these were my wife's fist dives this was really nice. In addition to the regular stuff, they did all the little things...

Our four person family (including two teenagers) took a great kayaking trip from Leeward Marina through the mangroves and then to Little Salt Cay, aka, Iguana Island. Our guide was great fun and led us well into the mangroves and then guided us across the channel to the cay. The iguanas are fun, though the boardwalk is pretty short. Nice... More

Took a 1/2 day kayaking excursion through Mangrove Kay to Little Water Kay. We got to see lovely Red Mangrove trees, BIG iguanas on Little Water Cay. This trip is better for people who have kayaked at least once or twice. Good exercise, Lots of sun and beautiful views - both land and sea. Our guide, Amanda, was great and... More
