I went on a kaying trip with my girlfriend. We went around Mangrove Cay and then went to Iguana Island where we stopped for about 30mins. For sure we saw cool stuff like Jojo the dolphin, sea turtles, small nurse sharks and some jellyfish as well as the iguanas. My probems really fell with our guide and how I felt... More

Your feedback is noted and appreciated. Very sorry to hear that you suffered in the sun. We'll be sure to remind our guests to cover up and bring extra sun cream; it's hot in TCI any time of year!! Stoked that your saw JoJo on your trip, plus all the other marine life. Very cool. More

The Kayak Eco Tour in the mangroves and Iguana Island was a highlight of our trip to TCI! Seeing the marine life - sea turtles, baby sharks, jellyfish, urchin - up close in shallow waters was amazing. Gershwin was a cool guide as well. We had tandem kayaks and took our kids (ages 6 and 10). Current and winds can... More

It's wonderful to hear that the Big Blue kayak eco-tour was the highlight of your trip to TCI. The marine life in the Nature Reserve has been outstanding of late with baby sharks and turtles galore. Thanks for joining us and for writing the review. More

My wife and I came to Provo to celebrate our 10 year Anniversary. One thing that I knew I wanted to do after reading about T&C reef system was go on a snorkeling excursion. After looking at MANY Trip Advisor reviews and websites, I felt like Big Blue Unlimited was the right choice. The reasoning was simple. Island Vibes and... More

We had a great experience for 10 of us on a SUP tour of the Mangrove Cay. A windy day made it a challenge in the beginning, but our guide, Ray, did a great job shepherding us through. We saw a lemon shark, nurse shark, turtles, and the famous dolphin JoJo!!

There were 6 of us who did the eco snorkel trip. I can't say enough how professional our 2 captains were, Gershwin and Elvardo. They made the experience great with all their knowledge. We went to 3 different snorkeling spots and each was more fantastic than the one previously. I would highly recommend this company!

We did the Heart of the Island tour. There were only 3 of us on our tour. After being picked up at our hotel, we quickly filled our paper work and met our guide Lynn. She gave us a quick boat safety lesson and then we were off. She was very safe in navigating the shallow waters around the island.... More

This was probably our top experience in Turks and Caicos! My mom and I took a 2-hour SUP excursion (both first-timers). Trey, our guide, was so friendly and knowledgeable: he really made us feel comfortable getting on the boards and into the water, and made sure we were using the correct techniques. The water was surreal: seeing turtles swimming under... More

We chartered a boat for 1/2 day with the dynamic of Jay and Brent. Best duo we have ever dove with. They made our day so easy as we dove two sights and did one great snorkel to film a Manta Ray up close and personal. Great jerk chicken lunch was included! Highly recommend!

Our eco-kayak tour was fun but it could have been great if they had single kayaks for people over 5'6" tall. I'm six two and I literally could not fold into the space for the cockpit/opening. Putting my legs outside decreased my stability and cause one dunking. The tandem kayaks had much better and bigger openings. Our guide was 5'7"... More

Thanks for joining us and we're glad your enjoyed the kayak eco-tour with Trey. Your feedback on the single kayaks (and water consumption) is greatly appreciated. Our 14ft Necky singles are amazing craft but we agree the cockpit is a bit tight. We have some larger Wilderness Systems kayaks on order so will have some greater options available soon. More
