We rented 2 tandem ocean kayaks and explored the mangroves. We saw baby lemon sharks, juvenile cowfish and cool birds. Beautiful trip, great gear and staff are extremely knowledgeable about navigating the mangroves. We highly recommend using BIg Blue.

We did a lot of research before booking and we are so glad to have done a half day snorkel with big blue. There were just 8 of us on the trip in a boat that had plenty of room for us. We were out on the reef early, before any other boats and spent a good hour or more... More

We spent ten days in beautiful Turks & Caicos and took 3 tours with Big Blue. First, we took an amazing 1/2 day snorkel tour with Captain Michael and tour guide Odessa. Odessa really made my children feel comfortable with their first snorkeling trip in the open water! Next, we took a 1/2 day kayaking tour with Gershwin. He was... More

Gershwin (KJ) led us on a wonderful kayak trip in the mangroves and across to Iguana Island. We saw turtles, a baby lemon shark, sting rays, barracuda, conch, iguanas, and the upside down jellyfish. They provided some nice snacks at a break - fresh fruit and baked goods. The paddling was not too strenuous, but the sun was hot. Wear... More

Really nice staff and a great dog named Kaya. It was super easy to rent kayaks (tickets for the island too) and paddle over to Iguana Island. There are nice tour guides on the island and lots of iguanas. Really fun outing!

Big Blue offered small group half day snorkeling adventures. We visited 4 different snorkeling spots, and saw huge tiger rays, an octopus, and many other colorful fish. The guides were great and they were also conscientious about preserving the reef. (We were instructed not to touch anything and to use only eco-friendly sunscreen, which can be purchased at their shop.)... More

We had a great time sailing our kayaks across beautiful Chalk Sound. Once the paddling began, Mark (our guide), stopped frequently to explain the diverse ecosystem. We saw jellyfish, a ray, and got to explore along the mangroves. We then had lunch on a secluded beach. Mark had us take some of their snorkeling gear so we could see the... More

We did a SUP mangrove excursion with Johnny as our guide. He was great. We got to see turtles, conchs, puffer fish, and reef sharks to name a few. It was a very fun trip!

We booked a kayak tour with Big Blue. Their location was amazing, the scenery and wildlife was spectacular. Our guide was very helpful, knowledgeable and quite funny. We spent over 4 hours on the tour, great exercise and well worth the cost. I will use Big Blue on my next trip to the Turks and Caicos and would highly recommend... More
