The personal touch and degree of professionalism delivered in our trip to iguana island and snorkel tour was incredible! While the trip was only 4 hours, there was never a feeling of being rushed or lacking in education or entertainment. Mark and his captain provided a personal touch to the tour as if it was custom planned for our tour... More

My wife and I have been coming to TCI for five years, and this was my fourth time out with Big Blue. I love this dive outfit. We typically private charter for a half day (or a full day if going out to West Caicos island). This time, we asked at the last minute to have two other couples join... More

It is always a pleasure to see old friends again. We're stoked you enjoyed the diving so much and saw a Manta Ray feeding!! It's great to read your review and your take on our team, service and environmental philosophy.

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!
