Excellent, wish we could go every day
We had a wonderful sunset paddle tour with Bredlyn (sorry if we messed up the spelling!). He was so knowledgeable, and my teenagers also really enjoyed getting to know more about life on the island. Everyone at Big Blue Collective was so friendly and with a clear respect for nature and the local environment. Beautiful scenery. Calm and relaxing with comfortable kayaks. We wish we could go every day!

Great Kayak Adventure
What a great experience. Seeing the wildlife in the mangroves was unique and very informative. Charlie had a great depth of knowledge about the area and sea life and was a most accommodating guide. Seeing the turtles and upside down jellyfish were definitely highlights.

Birthday Club a Life Time of Special Memories
It was one Birthday Club experience that will go down in the history books for us! Just fun as you can image with 5 of us 6 birthday girls get together....but also so very beautiful you just can't imagine unless you are out there in the water, and the mangroves are just as special as we imagined. So many juvenile and adult turtles every where! It was so very special, and both Brandlee and Dre were wonderful young men....hoping Brandlee goes for a Marine Biologist Degree! He's that informed. Thanks to Germia for answering all our questions in advance and being a sweetheart. These Birthday Club Ladies had a very special birthday!
We are definitely doing this again....especially with our #6 birthday lady who missed out.

Great kayak tour
Great tour of Mangrove Cay, Little Water (iguana) Cay, and Half-Moon Bay. Our guide pointed out sea turtles, jellyfish, and even a stingray. He knows the area very well and had a friendly laid-back attitude. Would definitely book with them again.

Great Kayak with Breadlyn!
My family loved the Kayak Eco Tour! Breadlyn was a great guide - very knowledgeable about the ecology and history of the mangroves and Iguana Island. He made sure to give us clear directions of where we were going and tips and tricks for paddling. Overall our experience with Big Blue Collective was excellent.

Good experience and workout!
Good experience and workout! You get to go around the Mangrove Cay and Little Water Cay (Iguana Island). Entirely experience is 4 hours and you tandem with your partner if you are in a couple otherwise you can get your own kayak.

Mangrove tour is the majority of the 4 hours, and you see many turtles and little fishes. Our visit it was during prime covid time so we were just one of two kayaks so it was very easy to navigate and turn around the smaller areas that may probably take more time normally. Very calm and peaceful in Mangroves. It is definitely a workout overall to go from Cay to Cay and you will be tired at the end of it but they supply water and some snacks.

Only tip is BRING BUG SPRAY, we got bit by bugs and didn't know it until later that day and got very itchy. Kinda expected if you know Mangrove Cay is like a creek/shallow pond with lots of wildlife, but yeah come prepared.

Excellent tour and tour guide!
My husband, our 10 year-old daughter and I did the Kayak Eco Tour. We loved going though the Mangroves and seeing “juvenile” turtles swim by. Our tour guide, Bradlyn, was awesome! He had so much knowledge of the eco system and he was very patient with those of us that were slow paddlers. 😊
The best part was stopping at iguana island, swimming in the beach and eating brownies!
The trip back was a little strenuous because the wind was against us at the end but we just went straight for fish tacos to reward ourselves!

Kayak Tour with Cole!
I went on a very serene kayak tour with Big Blue and it exceeded my expectations. My guide Cole was an absolute delight! Make sure you ask her about the local wildlife, especially the snaggletooth shark.

The mangroves were peaceful. I saw so many turtles and even a baby shark! The water was crystal clear, and sun was shining.

It was a beautiful day and a memory I will never forget. I really appreciate the eco friendly aspect of Big Blue. They made sure our sunscreen was reef friendly.

Please do yourself a favour, before you come to Turks and Caicos PLEASE make sure you bring sunscreen that is reef friendly, you have no idea how bad the chemicals are for the environment. Thank you to Big Blue, I would highly recommend.

Thank you so much for your lovely review Sinead. Cole is an awesome eco-tour guide and we're delighted you had a great time with her. Thank you also for advocated our biodegradable sunscreen drive which is so important. Hope to see you again soon.
