We went out with Big Blue Unlimited on a four hour eco-kayaking "adventure." Our guide Trey was knowledgeable, friendly, funny and well-prepared. We received excellent instructions prior to heading out and felt comfortable kayaking with our 8 and 10 year old children. We visited "Iguana Island" and the mangroves where we saw juvenile sharks, rays, turtles, several species of birds,... More

Trey is a brilliant kayak guide and we're glad you enjoyed his company and experience. Your assessment of children's age and wind are spot on. The Nature Reserve is mostly sheltered but there are sections to cross that are exposed and it can make for a work-out. Hint: guides always carry a tow rope if you need a little extra... More

The Kayak Eco Tour was wonderful. Gershwin was knowledgeable and kind. It was quite a windy day and Big Blue was all about safety -- very reassuring when out on the (beautiful) water with a child. We toured the mangroves and kayaked to Little Water Cay. Would absolutely book with them again.

Safety is the first priority at Big Blue. Fun and adventure a close second. Gershwin has become a wonderful, entertaining and knowledgeable guide and I'm glad you enjoyed your kayak eco-tour with him. Thanks for the recommendation. More

Many thanks to Roger and Ray for an outstanding half day trip to Parrot cay and other snorkeling sights. The highlight was our encounter with JoJo the dolphin and his babies. We were able to swim a little with them which was an unbelievable experience.

It's always a treat to see Jo Jo. It's no wonder the wild & sociable dolphin is the country's mascot. He and his friends have been delighting visitors and residents for over 30 years. Thanks for the review. More

Took a SUP trip into the mangroves. Mark was a great instructor-calm, patient and clear in his instructions. The first part of this trip was in a sheltered area where you get the hang of SUPing then you cross a channel-some waves but not too difficult. Then you go into the mangroves where it is calm and crystal clear. We... More

I have to say that we were refugees last week from Sanibel,Fl where 'big sugar' has made the ocean black and awful with pollution. So anywhere with blue clear ocean would have been welcome and Provo. certainly fits that bill. For a start Big Blue needs to change it's marketing. They are actually an outfit specializing in small groups which... More

We're thrilled you came to Provo and enjoyed your time with Big Blue on the reef. We agree with you 100%, the colour of the water is hard to beat!! It sounds like you really enjoy snorkeling and know you marine life too, so I hope we can take you out on one of our dedicated snorkel trips next time.... More

This was our second time that we chartered a boat for the day with Big Blue. Both times we had Brent as our captain and this time he dove with my 15 year old son and husband. Calm, cool, collect and knowledgeable, we were in great hands.

We went on a family vacation to Turks and Caicos this past week.

Thank you for writing about your first snorkel experience. It's understandable that you were nervous, it's a big ocean and the reefs are a 1/2 mile offshore.

This may be a good tour if you are just looking for some very easy kayaking with lots of down time, but if you are interested in actual kayaking and exploring the mangroves, then you are better off renting by the hour and asking them for directions on where to go.
