We did the half-day kayaking tour out to Little Water Cay (Iguana Island) and the channels of Mangove Cay. Lynn and Hugo were the guides, and they were great. Very helpful and knowledgeable. We saw a ton of sea life, including things a novice wouldn't necessarily know. They provided water and snacks as well. The route is in the neighborhood... More

Thanks for the review and recommendation. It's a fun and interesting Eco-tour and we're glad you enjoyed learning about the marine life. Your feedback about the length of tour is noted and something we will look at; especially concerning prior experience and stamina of the paddlers. Cheers. More

We booked a snorkeling tour with Big Blue and were so excited to get out on the reef. When we got to the reef, the majority of our group decided they weren't comfortable going in. We were very disappointed when the tour guide acquiesced and took us back in for a refund. We couldn't fault the company or the guide,... More

Always tough to please everyone in these situations but safety always comes first. Sorry you missed the opportunity to snorkel but thrilled you enjoyed the kayaking so much. Hugo is an excellent eco-tour guide plus a skilled kite-boarding and scuba diving instructor. We're lucky to have him. More

My wife and I went stand up paddle boarding with these guys. We'd never tried SUP before so we weren't sure what to expect. The instructor was great, friendly and knowledgeable about both how to learn to SUP and the environment. Going through the mangroves on a SUP is the perfect way to experience the shallow nursery.

I can't recommend Big Blue highly enough - their knowledge of and care for all of the waters surrounding TCI, their wonderful staff, and their high level of service are unparalleled. Lizzie is an amazing dive master who shepherded our 14-year-old daughter through the dive certification process and took us on many amazing dives, and Brent is a top-notch boat... More

We hope this is the beginning of an amazing dive career for your daughter. You can't get a more thorough introduction to the sport than through Lizzie. Capt.

Really neat and our instructor Kaja ("Kaya") was very eager to show us everything she could hopping out of her kayak to pick up things from the sea floor and show them to us in our kayaks.

Kaja is a wonderful eco-guide, dive-master and kite-boarding instructor who we have recently welcomed to the Big Blue team. She is a positive bundle of energy and calls herself a Jedi Knight. We're glad you had a good time kayaking with her. Thanks for the review. More

While any snorkeling trip will take you to the right reefs, the servicxe and staff is second-to-none. From the office staff who helped me book with a tight schedule to our guides on the water, everything was professional and well-handled.

Thank you to Big Blue for the great time we had on our private half-day charter. Jason and Amanda were fun and very knowledgeable. And don't try to feed the iguanas on Amanda's watch - ha! The office staff was very responsive and helpful as well. We would definitely book through them again!

I used Big Blue for SCUBA diving and my wife and I also booked bicycles on North Caicos in October. The SCUBA experience was outstanding, the bicycle rental less so (but may have been better in another season). First, SCUBA was great. I’ve been diving for 15 years and get to dive about once a year.

Thanks for the detailed review. Thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the dive experience so much and for acknowledging that we take small groups and go where the best diving is; not just the closest mooring. We have a great relationship with the Blue Haven Resort next door and visitors should look out for some joint adventure/accommodation specials this summer.... More
