        Fun kayak tour
        We had a great time on our Kayak tour of the mangroves. Our guide was informative and helpful as we kayaked. We saw many fish, a baby shark, conch and a turtle.

        Great Crew with Big Blue!
        Our group of 10 family members had a great half day of snorkeling, swimming, boating, and exploring Iguana Island. Our captain and crew were all first rate: very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Thank you Libert, Jake, and Gineille!

        All Female Crew = An AMAZING Day!
        Our group of 10 booked a North Shore tour on White Sands and we had such an amazing day. Captain Cole and her crew Allie and Amber were absolutely fantastic. They fed us all day long and made sure there was plenty to drink to keep us hydrated. We have booked other tours before, with other companies, but this was our favorite. All 3 women were so personable and attentive, not only to us but to the ocean environment. It was so refreshing to witness such care and concern. The vessel is immaculate and comfortable. Plenty of sun for those who desire it, and plenty of shade for those seeking respite from it. The typical snorkel spot was packed with boats, so Cole took us to a less popular spot that was equally as beautiful and far less traveled. We were fortunate enough to see three nurse sharks during our adventure, and it was truly magical. When we stopped at Pine Cay to anchor down for a few hours, eat lunch, and enjoy the beach, Jojo the dolphin came right up to the boat. He must've been there for a good 10 minutes or so, just swimming and playing with everyone. He left and came back a few minutes later with Bo, Sarge, and Scooter. The other 3 didn't get as close, but Jojo came right back to the boat as if to show off his family. It was incredible! This is a day that none of our group will ever forget.

        Our guide Mitch was warm, knowledgeable, flexible, and kind
        Whether you’ve never ocean kayaked before or are an old pro, Mitch will get you geared up in either a double or solo kayak (your choice) and off to explore the white and red mangroves across the way and learn how they protect the area against erosion and the lessons learned in other parts of the world where they’ve been removed for development. There you may see turtles, conchs, and pelicans. Then off to Iguana Island—a reserve for the native Iguana population—where you’ll learn about how they survive without a source of fresh water. In total, about 8km (5 miles) of paddling to work off some of that resort excess! Highly recommended.

        Awesome day snorkeling in TCI
        Weather was amazing as were Jake and Ellie. Very personable and informative. Boat was in very good condition and appropriate size for our group size and adventure. Saw amazing things such as: eagle rays, great variety of reef fish, hawk bill turtle, squid, sharks, southern rays, and a small group of dolphins (with calf) - with whom we swam! The whole group had a really great day and we made new friends. The day with Blue Collective was a real highlight of our trip to TCI (we have gone to TCI numerous times over the past 15+ years. Thanks Jake and Ellie!

        1/2 day snorkeling
        Staff was great but the weather wasn’t good for snorkeling. The water was choppy and exhausting. Too expensive overall.

        The Best Day With Ali & Libert
        If you are comparing options for a private charter in Turks and Caicos, do yourself a favor and stop your search at Big Blue Collective. I can’t say enough wonderful things about our trip with Ali and Libert. They were so fun to spend time with on the water, super knowledgeable of the area, professional, and paid attention to every little detail. They even went out of their way to provide snacks for my sister with dietary restrictions. They customized our itenerary once we arrived to the dock and shared what we wanted to do. For us, it was snorkel, cruise and see dolphins! They took it one step further and let us swim with one of the resident dolphins here in Turks and Caicos. It was without a doubt the highlight of our trip. When I swam up to the boat for my phone, Libert had already been filming the entire encounter! Our trip with Ali and Libert exceeded all expectations and we can’t wait to book our next trip with Big Blue Collective.

        Edge of the banks tour
        We did the edge of the banks tour with Mitch and Cole and we had an absolutely AMAZING time with them! We got to experience and interact with sooo much stuff when we did our tour! We swam with reef sharks, nurse sharks, stingrays, barracudas, parrot fish, conch, and so much more! The edge of the banks was our favorite portion of the snorkel! Mitch and Cole both were very knowledgeable and helped answer any questions we had and showed us a ton of cool things while out on the water! When we come back this is easily on the top of our list, thank you so much for the experience of a lifetime! Thanks, Aaron R.

        Great Views, Great Experience, Great Guides
        Excellent experience with great views of the mangroves and all of the wildlife in them. Even though it was very windy our tour was great and we saw so many things. Remember to bring plenty of sunscreen and bug spray just in case.

        Best day in Turks and Caicos!
        This day was the highlight of our trip. Taken out on a nice comfortable boat with just a few people. The crew served us fruit, drinks and sandwiches all day. Stopped at 3 different magnificent reefs for snorkeling. And lunch at a small deserted island. I’ve never seen so many colors of turquoise in the waters we traveled. Turks and Caicos is expensive but I consider this excursion a bargain. Thanks to Libert and Mike who made it so fun and informative

        Boat Rental
        Rented a 29 ft. boat for 4 adults and one ten year old. The rental was for 6 hours including a sunset. Cole the captain and Hugo the first mate were so much better than our highest expectations. The food, snacks and drinks were also much better than expected. We had a great time snorkeling, iguana island walking tour and cruising the sunset. This tour was tailored perfectly for us.

        Positively delightful
        We took the private sunset cruise. This trip was fantastic! From the moment we arrived, the service was impeccable. The women who greeted us and signed us in were so lovely. During our cruise, Jake and Roshane provided top notch service. The small bites were delicious fresh fruit and a delightfully savory charcuterie. Big Blue Collective gets two thumbs up… 10/10, highly recommend.

        Fantastic Scuba and Snorkel
        Our family of four did a scuba and snorkel all day adventure to the North Shore of Grace Bay. Our guides were Jake and Rashane. They did not disappoint and were very informative and trustworthy. They were amazing guides and made our day. My husband and son scuba dive so they did two dives at the Northwest Point. Then they took us to a sandbar near the Keys and we had an awesome lunch and did a long snorkel. We come to Turks and Caicos every year. I will not hesitate to book big blue collective and ask for Jake and Rashane in the future.

      Tom guided us into and around the mangroves, which provide an amazing habitat here in Turks and Caicos. We saw iguanas, a shark, baracudas, many turtles, bone fish, cow fish and several conch. He brought along cold water for us to sip on a break and we were even able to go for a swim in the shallow turquoise waters part way back from the mangroves. Absolutely a must see when you are visiting Turks and Caicos. Tom was very knowlegable about the area and helpful to a variety of skill levels on the paddleboards. While waiting for our tour, since we biked there & arrived early, we had the pleasure of speaking with several of the guides, who all were friendly, interesting and fun to chat with. Fabulous tour, would do it again!

      This was an amazing tour! We loved seeing juvenile puffer fish, barracuda, jelly fish, many turtles, and even a few sharks. Tom was a wonderful guide and teacher! He taught us about the unique echo system of the mangrove and helped us see so much! These guys really know what they’re doing. Highly recommend not missing this opportunity if you’re in Provo.

      We booked a couple excursions for the same day knowing there was a good possibility of cancelations due to the predicted storm. The other company cancelled on us two days prior. The weather ended up being perfect and it was only the 2 of us registered. Private tour? I'll take it! So pretty. We saw a couple sharks and tons of turtles. Thanks Kenlyn!

      Took the paddle boarding ECO tour into the mangroves. It was amazing. Kaylem spent the first 20 minutes teaching us about the history of the islands and the types of marine life around the mangroves. He was very patient with two new paddle boarders. We saw so many turtles who swam within inches of our boards...also saw sharks, barracuda, bonefish, etc. Can't say enough about this tour.

      A true ECO TOUR of the mangroves led by a charming marine biologist,Caylam, who served up interesting facts about native wildlife & served us water NOT out of plastic bottles but out of sanitized reusable Yeti water bottles. Caylam took us to the less popular spots & encouraged us to just chill & wait for the creatures to come out. We were richly rewarded with visits from lemon sharks, loads of sea turtles & little green herons.
      100% recommend.
      Big Blue Collective store sells reef-safe sunscreen & nicely designed sun shirts.
      Good activity for teens & up.

      Did the two hour paddleboard tour. The mangroves were lovely and we saw dozens of sea turtles, a barracuda, and a baby shark, live conch, as well as a lot of birds. A few portions the paddling was against currents and wind and a little tough. Bring sunscreen to reapply- it’s kind of brutal sun. Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable. Fun tour!

      Such a lovely mix of hard paddling and casual floating. Excellent instruction, leadership and wildlife pointing by Tom. We saw turtles, sharks, fish and jelly fish. Easy pace with just a bit of hard work. Tom did a wonderful job making sure everyone was safe, comfortable and got to see the wildlife. I would do this trip again!

      Our group of 6 did the mangrove paddle board tour. Our tour guide Brendan was great and was very informative and friendly. The paddle boarding was easier then I thought it would be being a beginner. We saw many turtles, jelly fish, and various fish. The mangroves and surrounding water was beautiful!

      This was the perfect way to experience the mangroves! Small group with Ketlyn as an awesome guide. We saw turtles, conchs, fish up close and personal while learning about the ecosystem from Ketlyn. Top notch equipment and friendly service. My teens also really enjoyed it! Highly recommend this adventure.

      We loved this paddle boarding trip and Tom was a great guide. It was quite a windy day and we were not even sure we would be able to go, but Tom really took care of us. He gave us some great information on the mangroves in Turks. We were excited to learn we would be seeing sharks and sea turtles. The water is so clear we were able to see so many fish and other sea life. Even though it was quite windy and it did end up being quite a workout, we were loved our paddle boarding trip. Definitely worth it.
