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'

I wish airlines were as organized as Big Blue! Exactly at 1, the lead moved us towards the boat, collected fins, and off to the first snorkel site. Visted 3 sites, including a ship wreck. Really enjoyed having a guide in the water, pointing out sea life etc that we would have missed. Snacks were great as were the brief... More

My family used Big Blue for two scuba diving days, a dry day tour of other islands, and kayak rentals. Brent (all 3 excursions), Lizzy, Daniel, and Ray were all great hosts and did a tremendous job taking care of all our needs. We all felt very safe yet were able to have a great experience. Thanks from all of... More

I have never written a review for an excursion before, but since my experience was so incredibly awesome, I wanted to share. Here are the two Beach Side Excursions I enjoyed: 1. Caicos Cays Cruise: Three stops to... More

We had a great time last week snorkeling with Lynn and Hugo. Learned so much about the islands and their history, and were reminded of how important it is to be eco-aware. Good fish, great coral. Excellent chocolate cake ;-)

So this is our 2nd trip to Turks and our 5th time out with Big Blue. We have never had the same trip twice. We are snorkelers and tried the kayak snorkel trip, the edge of the banks and an afternoon snorkel.. We are birdwatchers so the kayak was great - lots of warblers, herons, egrets.. I have not kayaked... More

SUP was a great way to explore the mangroves in Princess Alexandra National Park. The relatively quiet nature of SUP allowed us to view an array of aquatic creatures including bonefish, puffers, barracuda, upside down jellyfish and even a couple of juvenile lemon sharks. Our guide was wonderfully patient and paced our tour well given that hardly anyone in our... More

Spent a good deal of our vacation with Big Blue. We had a great self-guided kayaking experience, they were very knowledgeable about routes to take across water. We also took a guided SUP tour through the mangroves, a special thanks to Ben, our guide, who gave me some much needed pushes when the current made it difficult to make any... More

I booked a private dive trip for me and my boyfriend. I emailed a number of times as I was trying to sort out just what I wanted to do. Tanya always responded in a friendly, informative and patient way! We ended up going with a two tank trip, one late afternoon and one night dive. Our dive masters were... More

Janna took 6 of us out to the man grows. She was an excellent instructor, we all felt very secure, even while having to cross a boat Lane. We saw all sorts of wonderful things, including young lemon sharks, nurse sharks, turtles, starfish, jellyfish, and all kinds of flora and fauna. She helped us feel comfortable regardless of our skill... More

My boyfriend and I took a trip to Providenciales, and booked two adventures with Big Blue Unlimited. We did a half-day snorkel trip, as well as a sea kayak trip. Both were great experiences! The guides gave the groups a little lesson on the nature of the islands, as well as marine life in the area. Everyone leading the tours... More
