Private Dive Charters

Diving is at its’ absolute best in when done in private small groups. Our guests love it. We love it.

North & Middle Caicos – HEART OF THE ISLANDS

The Heart of the Islands, North and Middle Caicos, are truly special and different from Provo on so many levels. They are the roots of the Caicos Islands, with so many native families having their family foundations spread across the two largest islands in the TCI. Mudjin Harbour may well be TCI’s most famous vista and for good reason as well, the road there and past it offers sights and scenes found nowhere else.

Empty roads lace their way past cotton plantations, Flamingo Pond and some of the islands oldest settlements on North Caicos before crossing the causeway towards the caves of Conch Bar, Dragon Cay off Mudjin and onwards towards Bambarra and Lorimers.

Our ground breaking Heart of the Islands tour encompasses all of the key sites and more. Customized versions open up areas rarely seen or explored, while the intricate network of mangroves of the protected Ramsar site is the gateway to our unique backcountry paddle adventures.

From original laid back island vibes to untouched and true seclusion, North and Middle are wonderful options on any day and certainly when the seas are too rough to enjoy by boat.

Our Private Charter Fleet

We have a fantastic fleet of beautiful vessels. Probably the most well rounded modern fleet on the water in the TCI. From 30’ all the way to 48’ our 6 vessels define luxury, comfort and practicality. 

Whether you are a small group or a large group we have got you covered. Most importantly we have a team of captains and guides who are able to take you on boats to places almost anywhere on the Caicos Banks.

MV White Sands

Luxury, larger groups (ideal 12- max 18) (non-diving)

White Sands 420 Africat is a beautiful 42’ long power catamaran powered by twin Yanmar 311’s. She has a 21’ beam, which means she is super dry and stable with loads of space, up front, up top, out back, even inside. There is plenty of shade, fresh water showers and marine heads (toilets). She is absolutely ideal for laid back luxury island boating. If anchoring off the world’s best beaches while you swim, chill and sun bathe or seeing our stunning reefs while you snorkel and cruising in between is your thing, then Whitesands is for you, your family and your friends!

MV Serenity

Luxury, high speed adventure (ideal 6/8 – max 12) Dive (max 4-6)

Serenity is a stunning Intrepid 475 Sport yacht with 4 300HP Yamaha four stroke outboards. All 47’ of this beauty screams power, speed and comfort with head turning style. Intrepid are the market leader of sport yachts voted Boating Magazine’s “boat of the year” on numerous occasions. Power boating simply doesn’t get any better than this.

She has a fresh water shower, heads, beds, open air space and seating under shade as well as a beautiful spacious sundeck up front. Her innovative hull side doors and stepladders make getting back on board a breeze.

Smooth, quiet and precise, with a 14’ beam Serenity embodies Big Blue’s luxury adventure ethos – minimal time over distance in comfort and style. Whether diving, snorkeling or just cruising, the Serenity experience only adds to an already very potent mix.

MV Live & Direct

Adventure, versatility & speed (ideal 6/8/10 – max 14) Dive (max 9)

Live & Direct is and has been the adventure standard bearer of the Big Blue fleet and the TCI for over 15 years. She has been loved, lived and modified. If she could speak, her stories would be some of the most epic adventure stories in the Turks and Caicos. Some are secret, many are well known. She has been just about everywhere, can go almost anywhere and can do almost anything. She is fast, she is dry and she is stable. In short there is unequivocally no boat like her. She is a one of a kind, unique in everyway.

At 40’ long with a 14’ beam with two 355HP Cummins, Live & Direct is an awesome power catamaran. Ideal for 6-9 divers, she is equally adept at exploring the Caicos banks with 10-14 snorkelers and freedivers or with kids jumping off her sides during our annual Kids Kamps. Racked and stacked with paddleboards during the October Kalama Kamp she explores shallow creeks and bays only accessible by boats half her size.
No shower, but there is a head.

If you want action, adventure and fun, Live & Direct will deliver and then some. She is our beloved 4 x 4. Big Blue water born safaris are best reflected in her.

World Cat 32s

Luxury, smaller groups (ideal 6- max 10) (non-diving)

Our two beautiful, stable and shady World Cat 32s – Kusi & Thundercat are truly excellent vessels for family and friends in ideal groups of up to 6-8. They have loads of shade and seating space and excellent ocean access via strong ladders at the back. These two vessels are just as comfortable chilling by the beach at Ft. George as they are going out on full day adventures to French Cay, West Caicos or beyond.

Their width / beam is an understated factor in sea stability when on a mooring or on anchor. Shallow drafts allow them to get close to the beach and both vessels have toilets, fresh water showers and a small changing room when needed.

World Cat 29s

Luxury, small  groups (ideal 4- max 8) DIVING

Our World Cat 29’s, Little Chill & Gracie, are superb vessels for our small group dive charters for 2-4 divers. With tanks racks at the back, seating at the front, plenty shade and lots of speed, these boats are happy diving near or far.

We often conduct courses, 1 tank and 2 tank dives from Little Chill and Gracie but while they are perfect for diving they are also excellent choices for small or young families not wishing to go too far or for a couple to go further afield while keeping things simple.

Both boats have bathrooms, changing rooms and a fresh water rinse. The 2 x 300hp engines mean no where on the Caicos Bank is out of range either.

Skyfall

Luxury, rocket ship. ideal for 6-8 (non – diving)

Skyfall is the lastest addition to our fleet. The 28 foot technohull is a rigid inflatable powered by twin 400 Mercury Verados. Long story short, this beauty goes fast. Seriously fast. But she also has a chill side to her so that trips to the North Shore Cays are as enjoyable as fast paced trips across the Caicos Banks to West or South Caicos etc.

With her inflatable sides, it means that comfortable sitting is possible along both of her sides. But rest assured her strength is speed over ground and if you want to move fast to get some where or get back home, then as long as the ocean conditions allow, she’ll fly you back.

Check her out!

Destinations – Where we go, where we can take you

Our little Island nation is made up of 41 islands and cays. Only 9 are inhabited. With no roads connecting these islands the only way to really explore our country is by boat. The best times in the islands are days spent cruising on the turquoise seas while exploring the plethora of secluded beaches, coves and reefs in this amazing archipelago with family and friends. The options and experiences available are boundless.

There are so many places to visit and explore, enough to keep you coming back for years to come and certainly more than enough to have kept us excited for over the last two decades. From two-hour excursions and half day cruises to full day adventures, we love to get out there and show you the best of the TCI. Throw in some snorkeling, freediving, scuba, paddling or kiting and the sheer variety of things to do will only ever leave you wanting more.

NORTH SHORE &THE CAICOS CAYS

ALL our half day charters are spent cruising and chilling along the some of the most iconic beaches in the Turks & Caicos Islands.

From Half Moon Bay along the magnificent Water Cays and on to Ft. George‘s braided sand bars there are numerous relaxed anchorages and places to chill and relax while vibing out to good tunes.

The barrier reef runs all along this coastline, so that snorkel stops are super easy. 

Little Water Cay aka Iguana Island is often our first stop for those who haven’t been and from there on its all about chilling out and maybe being luck enough to find Jojo the dolphin and his family.

WEST CAICOS

West Caicos is a guest and team favorite for many many reasons. This uninhabited 7 mile long island is about 50-60 minute journey away from our base in Leeward but as is so often the case getting there is just as much fun and being there. Usually we take the ‘outside’ the reef route to get there. Open ocean dolphin encounters are common and when we can we get in. 

West Caicos itself is lined with a stunning iron shore coastline, with few beaches, save for the north end. As such the visibility and the calmer surface make snorkeling conditions here incredible. 

With the 6000′ drop off right behind the boat the colours here are simply spectacular and this is where we often go during our Edge of the Banks snorkel safari and full day private charters.

FRENCH CAY

French Cay, once home to pirates, this tiny bird sanctuary is nestled on the edge of the Caicos Bank, directly due south 45-50 minutes from our base is unique. The journey there crosses turquoise water no deeper than 10′-12′. The sandy bottom gives way to seagrass beds (a vital marine habitat) as one approaches this Cay that is about as big as a football stadium.

Surrounded by reefs on one side as well as the drop off, French Cay has always been a fishing mecca for islanders and for us snorkelers that means lots of life.

Eagle Rays, schools of fish and beautiful corals surround French Cay which is equally for the diver and snorkeler alike.

We often come out here during the Edge of The Banks snorkel safaris and full day private charters on our way to other outer reefs.

SOUTH CAICOS

AKA The Big South has a special place in our hearts. It’s unique on every level. A real step back in time. The traditional fishing capitol of the country, South Caicos’ location, 40 miles south west of our office, sits on the eastern edge of the banks and as such receives all the deep water nutrient up welling from the 6000′ deep Turks Passage.

Tides and currents, waves and winds have shaped these cays in the most stunning of ways. The crystal clear seas are perhaps only rivaled by the remote beauty.

Full day snorkel charters & adventures here are really special as snorkeling becomes just one of the many highlights to see and experience.

Perhaps the best part is that no one else comes here from Provo. Which means when we do come, we have the places to ourselves.

If you haven’t joined us on this trip, ask us. You will love it.

THE OUT ISLANDS

There are dozens of out islands. The ones we love going to are truly off the beaten path. East Caicos, Joe Grant’s Cay, The Ambergris Cays,  The Seal Cays, McCartney Cay, Long Cay….

The list is long and thus the adventures and experiences never end. The options are only limited by time and weather. We have the boats to cover ground quickly and in comfort and we have the knowledge of where and when to go. 

During the whale migration and mating season we often go far and wide to these places to find them. During the summer we have lots of time to explore to your hearts content.

Good weather, full, full days and early starts make these days some of the best days on the water.

Charter Faqs

We provide all sorts of gear on our boating trips. Most importantly we provide you with complimentary snorkel gear made by the best in the business – Cressi.

Masks and snorkels are on the boats, fins you try on before we leave the dock. We have subwings hidden away to use on special days and on our full day trips we commonly break out our inflatable paddleboards, ideal for exploring and children.

We provide beach pick-ups and pick-ups from private docks. There are however, many factors we have to consider; the sea state, the tide, the boat, the destination and your safety. Some areas are better suited to this than others, Grace Bay being a case in point. If we already have all your gear and sizing requirements it can be easy.

Sometimes we can’t provide a pick up but can offer a drop off as conditions change over the day. The opposite is also true. Please ask and we will do our best. Bare in mind our dock is absolutely ideal for loading and commonly the simplest way to start the day.

First in, Last out

Our trips leave earlier than most and for good reason. More often than not the weather and the sea are calmer in the early morning, which means good boat rides if we are covering distance on our longer days out. It also means more time out where you want to be. For those trips closer to home it means we beat the boat traffic and their larger groups. Trust us when we say there is nothing better than having the snorkel reef to yourselves. The same goes for the beaches. Rather than rush you back, we try and make sure you squeeze every last drop out of your day on the water.

Sea Conditions

Weather and sea state play a huge role in determining where we can take you. Most of the time we can go exactly where you hope to go. Sometimes we are not able to do so and we have to make decisions to best accommodate your needs, safety and conditions.

We will always inform you of changes to schedule or destination. We give you as much information as possible to help make those choices with the aim of getting you out there safely. If we have to cancel it is always a last resort.
Our aim is to make it happen and very often the weather in one place is totally different in another.
