My wife and I got a great half-day kayak tour from Alvaro. He knows everything about the local ecosystem - it was like getting a tour of his own private mangrove! The tour route was varied - from the mangroves to the iguana sanctuary and then back into the mangrove channels. We saw lots of fish, star fish and conch. Herded a turtle too! We missed out on the sharks though.

They provide wet bags for your stuff, a bottle of water and a snack (cookies, etc...). Equipment was in good shape. Definitely fun if you like kayaking, you'll learn alot about Provo as well.

My husband and I were looking for a snorkeling trip on the island that was informative as well as giving us as much time in the water as possible. Big Blue achieved that and more. We did the Eco Snorkel (3 separate snorkeling spots) on the inside and outside of the barrier reef. Our captain was a master diver and our guide was also. They were super friendly and helped out from passing out the equipment to explaining specific fish species to look out for before the dive in. I felt like I was on a mini National Geographic trip. Our boat held only 8 people and we left the dock on time as promised. We saw so many exciting sea life on this trip...huge Southern stingrays, nurse sharks, big lobsters, scorpion fish, barracudas, beautiful corals and even a full rainbow while swimming. We were so happy not to have opted with the other tours that take you to conch diving and serve rum drinks we got so much more from Big Blue Unlimited.

If going to Provo using Big Blue as an expedition resource is a must if you want to get away from the tourist scene. We did a snorkeling trip, a paddle boarding trip and a multi-island tour with them. Small, intimate and informational. The staff are all unbelievably nice; interesting people you would have at your dinner table.

Took a half day snorkel trip with Big Blue. Staff was great. Bring your own equipment if you have if you have it.

Our family took a trip over to North & Middle Caicos, the day after a storm, so we were a little nervous. But we were assured it wouldn't rain & the cloud cover was not a problem. We have three small children, so rain was a concern. Ben was our captain, and he was awesome, I would ask for him by name next time. He was so patient with the kids, and we appreciated that. Cardinal Aurthur was our driver/guide on Caicos, he was wonderful with a lifetime of info to share with us. All in all, we had a perfect day, thanks to Ben & & Big Blue.
Note: We also rented SUP's & kayak to be delivered to the villa, the equipment was waiting for us when we arrived.
