We rented a private boat for a day trip to Racha islands with 5 adults and 3 kids (9, 7 and 5 years old). We had a fabulous time and enjoyed every service provided by The Big Blues. The boat was clean, we had all we needed (good fishing equipment, sunbathing mattress, amazing Thai lunch, drinks, snorkeling equipment, life vests,... More

Tunas, Spanish Mackerel, and Sailfish! On our first private fishing charter trip in Phuket we had probably one of the most unforgettable boating experiences we ever had. We knew what to expect in Phuket waters from previous fishing trips and doing researches, but it just kept getting better with The Big Blues and Captain Stefano. The Boat is super spacious,... More

Went to Racha Islands for a full day fishing with Big Blue. Stefano, the owner, greeted us, but was not able to join us on the trip which felt like we did not get the best fishing guide for the tour. His crew is knowledgeable for descent fishing tour, but I felt they are just running routines and wasn't doing... More

Nice fishing day out at sea in front of Phuket; we had a small Sailfish and few longfin tunas but Stefano with his crew never stop working. It was unfortunate to have so much haze from Indonesia ruining our view but the service and the boat were excellent. Thanks

Stefano and his crew worked tirelessly in the effort of putting me on fish. Very knowledgeable captain. It was obvious that his mind set was to make sure I had a fantastic trip. Due to the weather and lack of cooperation from the fish he stayed out longer than expected. Had several hook ups on the first day, but could... More

As is usual for Stefanno and the Big Blues they delivered another excellent live-aboard experience. the boat, My-Lily, is very comfortable and the crew takes good care of you, without getting in your face all the time. The on board cuisine, "food" doesn't do it justice, is unbelievably good, like eating in high end restaurants. The real thing here is... More

Another great and vivid adventure took us a friendly company The Big blues and two years ago, was pleased not only service kitchen on the ship and professionalism of our friends from the Great blues, but also catch.
