We did two excursions with Big Blue, the first was stand up paddle boarding (SUP). It cost $85 each and we got to paddle for well over 2 hours. This was a new experience for both my wife and I, we both loved it. Our guide Michael gave us an introductory lesson and let us practice by the dock. Once... More

Big Blue Unlimted in Turks and Caicos came to with a luke warm recommendation from everything I saw on line. I hope this report gets a point across: Big Blue Unlimited is one of the best scuba diving operations I have experienced. I have used similar services in Little Cayman, Cayman Brac, Curacao, Belize, Mexico, St. Croix, and other places... More

Went on a two tank dive yesterday with Lynn, Chito, and Jason. Fantastic visibility, great fish, and some amazing pictures. Easy short trip into Grace Bay too! This is going to be our dive company when we come back. Lynn was the instructor for my husband's Dive 3 and 4 for certification and she was professional and knowledgeable. Great personalities...

My wife and I went to the Big Blue Unlimited for some scuba diving. We have never done scuba diving before, but our instructor—Lin—made us feel comfortable during the verbal training. Once we hit the water with our gear, she instructed on us step by step, and five minutes later, the three of us are 40 feet below water and... More

We rented a tandem kayak for 1/2 a day and it was very reasonably priced. We went to iguana island and walked around and took pictures and relaxed, then ventured back. Definitely bring your sunscreen and water bottles, as there is a nice path that you can hike on for about 20 minutes there and back on iguana island.

It took about 3 and half hours and our Guide Chino was great company and very knowledgeable about the area. The Equipment is top notch, they have Naish boards as well as Imagine... More

We did the Snorkel/Kayak trip and it was amazing! Jason and Brent made our trip memorable and fun! We learned a lot during our kayaking portion and got to see turtles, jellyfish, etc. It was a great day spent with Big Blue and can't wait to do something else with them next year!

We lucked out and our family of 5 were the only ones on the 1/2 day snorkel trip. We went out with Big Mike and Elvardo. Both were great guys and very knowledgeable. We went to 3 locations that offered different things to see. Lobsters, nurse shark, squid, lots of fish and coral. They were flexible with time at each... More

We found Big Blue very overpriced compared to other dive operations that also offered small dive groups of 8-9 divers and similar dive sites. We went out on a total of 7 (2) tank dives with Big Blue and rented dive computers. Total cost was over $1400 or approx. $200/2 tank dive. The other highly rated operators (Flamingo Divers, Dive...

Hi Mary, thank you for diving with us. We're very sorry that you did not find that the diving was value for money. I am surprised because we normally receive the opposite response from our guests who enjoy the intimate attention they receive with just 9 divers on our 40ft cat, the variety of dive destinations we can access from...
