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'

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

We were initially concerned about taking a 4-hour kayak excursion, considering our group was fairly new to kayaking. Our guide Yanna, immediately made our group feel comfortable about the mechanics of our kayaks. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area, pointing out many exciting sea creatures along the way. Visiting the Iguana sanctuary was definitely a highlight of the trip.... More

We had a trip planned with them for a snorkel trip. Even though the weather was bad, they insisted on picking us up and driving us to their location. When we got there they made us wait 45 minutes, then canceled the trip, and took a half hour to get us back to our hotel. Overall 2+hours wasted when they... More

Dear Sir, Big Blue has not charged your credit card. As our manager cordially explained it appears that you are confused with a purchase that you made at the 'Blue, The Surf Shop'. Given the similarity of the name we understand how you made this mistake but we confirmed with them that the charge on your card was for items... More

Sent my teens out for a morning SUPS adventure with Big Blue. They said they had a blast -- saw sand sharks, puffer fish, and a while assortment of other marine life. The best part? It wiped them out so my husband and I could enjoy a little quiet time without the endless chatter. Great adventure!

As two friends, we had an awesome time exploring the Mangrove Cay with Big Blue Unlimited during a SUP Ecotour. Our guide was great at spotting marine life and giving us an up close look at many creatures including shark pups, upsidedown jellyfish, sea urchins, starfish and an eggret nest filled with fluffy chicks. It's definitely worth the cost and... More

While we did not do a tour with Big Blue, I can comment on the Kayak rental operation. I suspect that this place may have a bit of a monopoly because their staff people struck me as extremely bothered that we wanted to rent anything. They were stand-offish and annoyed verging on rude. Perhaps they were tired at the end... More

We had the exceptional opportunity to go on two boat trips with Big Blue Unlimited on our recent visit to Turks and Caicos. For our first trip, we did a private charter that we won via a contest Big Blue ran on Facebook. Mark and Roger spent a lot of time helping us plan the perfect day out and we... More

My husband and I just returned from our first visit to Turks & Caicos. While there, we knew we wanted to snorkel and SUP. We researched several outfits, and finally decided on Big Blue Unlimited. Our first experience was snorkeling. Our group consisted of the two of us and another family of four, with two guides (Jason and Mikey). I... More

The instruction provided was thorough and professionally delivered. Crew members Lynn, Lizzie and Amanda were personable, patient, and caring. Should I ever return to Provo, I will be sure to choose Big Blue for my scuba and snorkeling expeditions.

Our dive experience with Big Blue Unlimited in Providenciales, was outstanding. Thank you's to Laura, Lizzie, Roger, Amanda, Lynn, Tanya, Yanna, Emma, Bradley, Ben (and anyone I missed). On my second dive day, on the trip out to the site we joked "maybe we'll dive with dolphins and sharks and see some whales today". We did just that ! A... More
