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'

One can find cheaper rates for snorkel, scuba, and kayaking adventure in TCI, but if your goal is really to get closer to nature, while respecting it and helping support an organization built around education and protection of the natural environment, then Big Blue U is the way to go. Their smaller group size means you'll have more time to... More

My husband and I signed up for a day of kayaking and snorkeling with Big Blue Unlimited during our March 2012 visit to the Turks and Caicos Islands. A tropical storm made the water rough for several days of our trip, and Big Blue canceled the snorkeling and extended the kayaking portion of our excursion. We were really disappointed to... More

We had a great 1/2-day kayaking adventure yesterday with Laura of Big Blue Unlimited. We started around 1:00 and kayaked to a couple of different cays just east of the leeward side of Turks and Caicos. The color of the water was amazing on the entire trip, and we saw tons of wildlife. We saw a grey egret wading near... More

My husband and I and two daughters in their early twenties visited Turks and Caicos during March 2012. We had a marvelous time on the beach and doing snorkeling and island hopping with Caicos Dream Tours, but I love birdwatching and was really hoping to see some of the birds that are unique to the islands. I called Big Blue... More

I'd say it's better than the rest because even though we spontaneously (booked just hours before our trip) went on a half-day snorkeling trip, the experience still felt like we were going on a much more expensive diving expedition. This definitely is their "money maker" at $125 a person since they offer far more premium and technically difficult or advanced... More

We went on a 1/2 day snorkeling trip with Big Blue Unlimited @ $125 per person and were quite disappointed. First of all the waters were quite rough that day and the trip should have been re-scheduled. We didn't realize how rough the waters were until we were out there. We couldn't anchor where they usually do with the waves... More

What an amazing adventure, thanks to Lynn & her awesome staff! Hubby and I went to T&C for our honeymoon and decided scuba diving was a must on our list. Never mind the fact that neither of us had any training or experience. After researching all the options around T&C for novice divers, Big Blue was heads and tails above... More

My husband and I took the Biking on North tour. The tour wasn't quite what we expected from the description. I expected the boat trip to North Caicos and that was quick. But I was a little surprised by the plantation. It was a ruin and our guide mentioned that some of the buildings were mislabeled because they didn't really... More

Booked the ½ day kayaking trip through the mangroves. We’re a family of 4. Two adults and two kids, ages 7 and 11. Dad took two kids with him in tandem kayak. Mom and guide were in their own tandem kayak. Ray was our guide, and he was excellent. We’ve traveled the world, and this was one of the best... More

My husband & I took our PADI Open Water Certification with Big Blue last week. The staff was absolutely wonderful. Tanya was very helpful & patient answering all of my questions via email leading up to our trip. Dave Goring, our instructor, was awesome!
