Great 1/2 day of snorkeling with Lynn and Hugo

We had a great time last week snorkeling with Lynn and Hugo. Learned so much about the islands and their history, and were reminded of how important it is to be eco-aware. Good... read more

So this is our 2nd trip to Turks and our 5th time out with Big Blue. We have never had the same trip twice. We are snorkelers and tried the kayak snorkel trip, the edge of the banks and an afternoon snorkel.. We are birdwatchers so the kayak was great - lots of warblers, herons, egrets.. I have not kayaked... More

SUP was a great way to explore the mangroves in Princess Alexandra National Park. The relatively quiet nature of SUP allowed us to view an array of aquatic creatures including bonefish, puffers, barracuda, upside down jellyfish and even a couple of juvenile lemon sharks. Our guide was wonderfully patient and paced our tour well given that hardly anyone in our... More

Spent a good deal of our vacation with Big Blue. We had a great self-guided kayaking experience, they were very knowledgeable about routes to take across water. We also took a guided SUP tour through the mangroves, a special thanks to Ben, our guide, who gave me some much needed pushes when the current made it difficult to make any... More

I booked a private dive trip for me and my boyfriend. I emailed a number of times as I was trying to sort out just what I wanted to do. Tanya always responded in a friendly, informative and patient way! We ended up going with a two tank trip, one late afternoon and one night dive. Our dive masters were... More

Janna took 6 of us out to the man grows. She was an excellent instructor, we all felt very secure, even while having to cross a boat Lane. We saw all sorts of wonderful things, including young lemon sharks, nurse sharks, turtles, starfish, jellyfish, and all kinds of flora and fauna. She helped us feel comfortable regardless of our skill... More

My boyfriend and I took a trip to Providenciales, and booked two adventures with Big Blue Unlimited. We did a half-day snorkel trip, as well as a sea kayak trip. Both were great experiences! The guides gave the groups a little lesson on the nature of the islands, as well as marine life in the area. Everyone leading the tours... More

We were initially concerned about taking a 4-hour kayak excursion, considering our group was fairly new to kayaking. Our guide Yanna, immediately made our group feel comfortable about the mechanics of our kayaks. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area, pointing out many exciting sea creatures along the way. Visiting the Iguana sanctuary was definitely a highlight of the trip.... More

We had a trip planned with them for a snorkel trip. Even though the weather was bad, they insisted on picking us up and driving us to their location. When we got there they made us wait 45 minutes, then canceled the trip, and took a half hour to get us back to our hotel. Overall 2+hours wasted when they... More

Dear Sir, Big Blue has not charged your credit card. As our manager cordially explained it appears that you are confused with a purchase that you made at the 'Blue, The Surf Shop'. Given the similarity of the name we understand how you made this mistake but we confirmed with them that the charge on your card was for items... More

Sent my teens out for a morning SUPS adventure with Big Blue. They said they had a blast -- saw sand sharks, puffer fish, and a while assortment of other marine life. The best part? It wiped them out so my husband and I could enjoy a little quiet time without the endless chatter. Great adventure!
