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.

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.

I am searching for a private charter for a family of 10 ( 6 adults, 2 children, & 2 babies). I am interested in being picked up at Turtle Tail area and visiting Delvins Cove cliff for cliff jumping, snorkeling @ Iron Shore and visiting a sand dollar bar with lunch provided. Is this possible?

Sorry just saw this. No problem for beginners just go to big blue and they can fill you in on everything. Might want to read up about the safety of jumping in with wild dolphins.
