“Two Trips”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

We took two trips with Big Blue Unlimited. The first was the Pure Snorkel. A short smooth ride to the reef with snorkeling in a very pristine location. Lots of coral formations and rock valleys to explore. Then to a cut in the reef for an out and back swim. Some stayed by the boat as they were not strong swimmers. Captain said he would pick them up half way through if they wanted. They declimed and saw a shark and had a good time. No pressure to do anything. Then snacks and beach walk. Great brownies and muffins. Then a wreck snorkel. We spent most of our time in the water. 8 people on one trip, 4 on the other. The other trip was to Iguana Island and snorkel at the reef and wreck.
Captain Anthony was very concerned that everyone had a good experience. Some had limited snorkel skills and he went to the wreck first so they could practice. Then to the reef. We had a guide on the 8 person trip that went into the water with us.
We were picked up on time ( do not let the van worry you). The boats are of good quality and the crews are excellent. We have snorkeled all over and this outfit was one of the most concerned about everyone having a good day.

“Snorkeling Eco Tour”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

We went on this half day tour today, our last day here on Provo, and it made our trip! My husband and I snorkeled around right off the beautiful beaches for days trying to find a single fish here or there, but when we were led out to the barrier reef by boat, we finally saw the 'real stuff' - best snorkeling ever! We must have seen 20 different types of fish, puffers, even a shark! Thanks to Jason and Blue, who made sure my seasickness was tamed by letting me get off the boat close to shore for a quick stroll on the beach halfway through the tour, and for being so attentive to all of our needs.
Pricey, but worth it.

“Great kayaking experience in Provo”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

We did the Kayak Eco Tour. Although we did not see a lot of wildlife in the water we learned a lot, saw some beautiful scenery and the iguanas and the beach on the island were unforgettable. Highly recommend and we would do another tour next time we're there.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

We did the Kayak Eco Tour. We were a family of four, 2 adults and 2 children ages 7 & 10. Our guide, Ray, was very knowledgeable and lots of fun. The kayaking was mostly easy, but when it got a little tough in one spot Ray was quick to help. The mangroves and iguana island were magnificent. Our whole family really enjoyed this trip and would highly recommend it.
