They might us in the water right by our hotel, which made it even easier since we didn't have a car. Whether you want to go deep sea fishing, snorkel... More

We had a great off shore fishing trip. We had to delay for a day due to weather. I was very pleased by the variety of fish we caught as well as the number. The trip was a good value. I would definitely book another with Big Blue

With one group we stayed for a while and that payed off: whales were around us, swimming, turning around and showing their bellies and even breaching several times! Such a show! We've spotted dolphins on the... More

We tried very hard but after 6 hours only one bite we gave up great boat and very experienced crew but if your luck is not running then the fish are not biting . Stunning visas but beware the sun is very strong so make sure you cover up All in all we still had a great morning

We spent 2 days deep sea fishing with the crew of Big Blu. Janneman took the time to meet with us prior to the trip and explained the different options, where the crew would head out to and also asked what we were interested in. The boat is comfortable, well equipped and the crew well experienced. Although a marlin came... More
