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'

We did a SUP tour with them. Everybody we dealt with there was very helpful and friendly. Wish I could remember our guide's name, but I can't, and he was really great! We didn't see quite as much wildlife as we would have liked, but they can't control that. It was still fun and informative. Based on my experience with... More

Big Blue offers several different activities. We only tried the snorkeling by boat. It was some of the best snorkeling I've ever done. We visited 3 spots to the east of Grace Bay. The captain and crew were experienced and friendly. They gave appropriate guidance. The boat was a catamaran style powerboat. It was stable and reasonably speedy. I loved... More

Big Blue is not just environment-friendly, they're alround friendly! Hosted by Big Blue (Philip Shearer) and lead by Dave Kalama & John Denney, our week-long SUPP Camp in October was brilliant, action and full-board from dawn 'till dusk. All leaders and staff were tops, highlighting safety, care, attentiveness, flexibility, warmth and fun. I wholeheartedly recommend this annual (October) course. Just... More

Kalama Kamp is one of the highlights of the year. What an opportunity to learn from the legend Dave Kalama, one of the pioneers of Stand-Up-Paddleboarding, Big Wave surfer and just an all around cool dude. Between him, John Denny and Philip you've got some serious expertise and a whole lot of fun. They're awesome at catering to all levels.... More

Day 3 of kiteboarding with my instructor Jessica Sloan at Long Bay beach ... I have butterflies with excitement every time before my session . I love this sport and she is such an amazing instructor, professional, knowledgeable , caring, motivating and fun. She makes me feel at ease and challenges me . I highly recommend her .

We went on the kayaking Eco-tour and had a great experience. On time pickup at our resort, driver was friendly and informative. We were welcomed cordially at their office and assisted through the final sign in process. Our tour guide Trey was very friendly, well versed in the islands, their history, and the ecology. He was also light hearted and... More

My wife and I took a private boat with Captain Brent and Cole around the islands. Wale watching, snorkeling and beach walking. They were fantastic and friendly. They were informed and professional and we really enjoyed the entire experience. We have done such tours around the world-- and Big Blue and the team was amazing. Highly recommend them for couples...

Okay, they get many of their stars because Turks and Caicos is amazing but the real truth is that they do a GREAT job of showing you experiences and places that most people will never get to see. They know their stuff. The provide great service... BTW I have done a few adventures with them including SUP, Snorkelling and Kiteboarding.

We're stoked that you enjoy exploring with us. We love our back yard but also specialize in adventuring off the beaten path. The different activities that you've done with us are all particularly awesome for this. I'd add scuba diving and kayaking to that list. We look forward to seeing you next time for some more experiences and adventure with... More

I did the snorkel Eco trip, four hrs. We did two reefs. This is not a party boat, this is serious snorkeling. OD was the "dive master" and lead us to and fro, diving here and there to rustle up a barracuda. You could follow or explore in pairs. For the second reef I elected to stay near the boat... More

Great for rentals, group tours of all sorts but you can also rent by the hour. We were able to rent Stand up Paddle boards and Kayaks for 1 1/2 hours and go out on our own through the mangroves. The pricing is also very reasonable.

Our group of 4 signed up for a private Kayak Eco Adventure for 4-6 hours. Our guide, Colin, was knowledgeable and entertaining. We had a blast. Take sunscreen/sunblock - you'll need it!

Thanks for writing a review about your private kayak trip with Colin last week. The 'iguana experience' is managed by the Turks & Caicos National Trust with whom we work very closely. We support their aims of preserving the cultural and natural heritage of the TCI. Really glad you enjoyed the kayaking and educational adventure. More
