All Star Cast

Our All Star cast rest dockside right in front of our office and operations base. A few short steps after checking in we will be casting off lines and heading out to the turquoise seas and stunning beaches that you crave.

We have six main vessels ranging from 47’ down to 27’ all except one are catamarans, stable, comfortable, spacious and fast.

We can cater to large groups, small groups, families, friends, scuba divers, kiters, paddlers and everything in between. There are maximums for each boat. Some are best suited for adventure and distance (speed and comfort) while others are better suited for luxury. All are ideal for these islands.

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.

MV Little Chill & Lady T

Small group style and adventure (ideal 4/6 – max 10)

Our two 295DC dual console, twin 300HP Yamaha, World Cats are a class apart.

They are go anywhere, do anything boats. Sunning, snorkeling, diving, cruising, island picnics or simple family fun. They bring you smoother rides, shallow drafts and greater stability even in rougher winter seas in comfort and at speed.

With comfortable cushion back seats up front for up to 6 people and cushioned seating in the back for 2-4, these two boats have ample space for 30’ vessels.

Perfect for small group and private charter diving (4-6 divers) as well as half day and full day boating trips up the cays or across the banks.

They both have heads, fresh water hose showers and when chartered as a pair they are perfect for larger families or groups of friends who want to keep things simple on boats that allow access to all the cool spots.

Paddle Fleet

The foundations of our eco tours rest on racks by the waterfront right next to our base. With almost 50 kayaks and over 20 paddleboards ready and waiting for each and every kind of eco adventure.

Our Necky kayaks are available in single and double versions. While we also have a handful of sit on top kayaks as well. Coupled with our Werner paddles, kayakers can either head off on their own or join our hugely popular eco tours to explore and learn all about the mangroves and wildlife within the Princess Alexandra National Park.

Likewise our beautiful array of Naish and Imagine paddleboards together with Quickblade paddles allow users the exact same kind of freedom. Boards and kayaks are accessible and easily launched from our ramp. Guided tours and rentals are as easy as 1-2-3. See you soon.

Boating

We offer the widest range of private and custom boating charters in the Turks & Caicos Islands. Every day is different and every trip is unique.

Choose from our selection of chilled out two hour, half day or full day boat rides to amazing reefs, beaches and islands. Enjoy an ocean sunset, cocktail in hand, or get out early on a full day to explore and adventure beyond the horizon.

Whatever floats your boat, we have you covered with first class, guides, captains, crew and gear while also providing you with delicious food and drinks on the most versatile fleet of premium, small group luxury adventure boats in the Islands.

Depending on your group size, desire and destination we have the right boat fit for the occasion, event or mission.

Group Size

While we focus and specialize on small groups, larger groups have numerous options from White Sands to taking more than one boat at the same time or as we have done for corporate bookings, the whole fleet!

Use our ideal as a guide to which boat might suit you best but bear in mind that if space is paramount then sizing up will be recommended. Our maximums are not really flexible. They are our insured maximums and depending on what activity or where you are going and who is with you, those numbers can either be just right or feel a little tight.

Destination

Location. location. location. It’s all about the destination From Fort George to West Caicos, French Cay to South Caicos or right around Provo – we can do it in style and comfort. All our vessels can pretty much go anywhere but some vessels are simply better suited to either open ocean, shallow water, short choppy seas or more importantly speed and therefore distance over time.

Very often vessels can get to the same places but due to size, especially draft, they can be limited in the route they take.
Most important is access. Diving for instance doesn’t really have any restrictions whereas hidden bays, coves, mangrove inlets and outer islands are very often limited in their access due to shallow water. Our boats all have a low draft, some more than others, and are excellent at getting shallow.

Diving

All our boats except MV White Sands are geared up to be diving platforms, the larger the group the larger the boat.
MV White Sands can be but this is an exception rather than the rule. Lady T and Little Chill are ideal for 1 tank dives during a private charter or for 4 divers doing a 2 tank dive.

Live & Direct is our bonafide dive vessel, perfect for 6-10 divers, with solid seated tank racks and a perfect dive platform.
MV Serenity allows for 6 divers to really mix up diving with exploration, similar to Live & Direct with just added speed and luxury.

Adventure

While Lady T & Little Chill can certainly get out there and explore, this arena is the domain of Live & Direct and Serenity. These two are made for adventure, exploration, early starts and late returns miles off the beaten path AWAY from the crowds in a way only Big Blue can deliver.
