We took the half day snorkel tour with Captain Blue and Michael. Their services were superb! We went snorkel at three different spots. We aren't good swimmers and Captain Blue took great care of us. He made sure we were doing Okay in the water. Wish we could stay a bit longer on the island to do more snorkel trips... More

Our 1st tour with Big Blue was so fantastic that we literally booked our trip back to Turks and Caicos so our children can experience the eco tour with Big Blue. Being avid snorkelers we know that no two trips are alike and sometimes its not even fair to compare but our trip with Big Blue fell below our expectations... More

Had a great morning with Michael, our guide. Started out at a pretty slow pace to the Little Water Cay to check out the iguanas. Saw a turtle on the way over, and then a couple of rays on the beach where we landed. Toured the nature preserve for the iguanas and then had a small breakfast of muffins, brownies,... More

If you're interested in learning about the nature around you while also engaging in some fun water activities, this is the company for you. Big Blue offers almost all the different water activities you might want on TCI: snorkeling, kayaking, diving, even bicycling. Big Blue prides themselves on having no environmental impact, and being in such a beautiful place with... More

My husband and I did the 1/2 day snorkel tour and we're quite pleased. We have different likes/dislikes when snorkeling and one four hour trip satisfied us both. We had 4 other people on board plus two crew members - Luke and Alvarado. Both of them were great! We made three stops - two reefs and one small ship wreck.... More

To give a fair review, I will point out that I am reviewing the company, and they deserve 4 stars. Every staff person we came across was pleasant, professional, funny and fun. They deserve huge kudos. I will not give the company a 5 star review due to the price of the trips. Half day for $125 per person? Too... More

We rented two sea kayaks and my wife and I took the kids out for an excursion on the Iguana Island. The gentleman at the desk was very very helpful, gave us a water proof map and suggested routes with the tides. Great kayaks, easy to use, and our kids who are 10 and 12 were able to enjoy the...

We went paddling boarding with Roy, he was awesome, my family and I loved every minute of it. However, there is a staff member there name Lizzy who is rude, loud, condescending. I would warn everyone to stay far away from her! I would skip a activity if she were my guide!

My wife and I recently returned from Turks & Caicos, which was our second trip to the island. After our first trip there two years ago, I told her I would not return until I was scuba-certified. Well, I finished my PADI certification in Texas one week before this last trip and, after much research into diving shops in Provo,... More

The girl behind the desk (sorry forgot her name) tried to dissuade us from kayaking to iguana island because the wind and tide were going to be against us on the way back. I'm glad we didn't listen but man we certainly worked our butts off on the way back. Great paddle and worth the trip to the island just... More
