Owner description: 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 have dived all over the world and have had various experiences with each agent. Big Blue are about as good as it gets!. From booking, getting kitted up, safety briefings and into the water is fast, efficient, safe and most of all enjoyable. Going below with Janna and Ben, (Ben-I-Am) was like diving with old friends and they went... More

My friend and I have snorkeled in many places, but were very disappointed with Big Blue. It was expensive and we only went to two sites, one of which we could kayak to from our villa for free. The guides were friendly, but they didn't go out of their way to look for things to show us. They also didn't... More

The Dive Masters went out of their way to make our trip fantastic. We stayed out an extra 2-3 hours so we could watch whales and swim with a whale. The diving was unbelievably beautiful. On our first trip down, we could hear whale songs. I totally recommend Big Blue on Provodenciales in the Turks and Caicos Islands

Our philosophy when it comes to whale & dolphin encounters is that we can never promise these but when they grace us with their presence we take the time to interact with them on their terms. Patience and know-how can create the most magical and sometimes life changing experience and when it is done right it very obvious that it... More

I've done a few tours (SUP mangrove, diving, snorkelling) with this outfitter over a few visits and enjoyed every one. The organization is small and efficient, the staff are great and the tours are really well conceived. Big Blue doesn't pad their tours with timewasting bits like cheap, bad meals and unremarkable sightseeing. They get you out and back with... More

After that its a natural combination of mother nature mixed with enthusiastic and well trained staff. I shall pass on your review to Monica at Club Med who does a brilliant job catering to the...

Today was definitely memorable among the already memorable 60 or so dive days in my life. My father-in-law and I left the Big Blue dive shop on Providenciales about 845am heading to West Caicos islands, about a 1.5 hour steam. On the way out the captain, Brent, spotted a small whale spout a quarter mile or so off the bow.... More

Wow, what a great read. Thanks for the very comprehensive account of your diving and humpback whale experience. What a treat to have the whale just hang out like that. The experience of the crew really shines through to keep the whale and guests safe during this soft encounter and it's clear that the more patient one is the more... More

We visited for the kayak Mango tour the day before we flew home. It was a nice send-off. Our guide was Jay. He was very friendly, helpful, and informative. The kayaks were very easy to maneuver and the visit to Iguana Island was an unexpected treat. Overall, a great way to spend an afteroon.

Me and my BF booked our kayak tour of the mangroves through our hotel Beaches. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided a great memorable tour. We started out kayaking to a protected island which had tons of iguanas. We parked the kayaks on the beach and started exploring. There were so many iguanas. He started describing the various...

'Active educational adventure' about sums up the kayak eco-tour, plus I took you on an extended paddle around the whole of Mangrove Cay so you worked harder than most.
