Check out the great little video, shot by Clay on his GoPro, while diving with Lynn at West Caicos.
A last minute booking by John Bingham and crew got them a couple of great days of diving with team Big Blue, Lynn and Dave and guest what….they saw 2 mantas as well as plenty sharks and turtles! Not bad for trying your luck to see if we had any space on the boats.
A pod of 6 dolphins greeted Laura, Brent and guests first thing this morning. The water was mill pond flat, perfect for a day’s diving at French Cay. After their encounter they did their first dive at the stunning site of “double d” with sharks and eagle rays to boot. The second drift dive was off the charts! 2 huge Eagle Rays interacting with each other, followed a few later mintues by a 5ft Nurse Shark. On the way back they found another dolphin. another stellar day with Big Blue in the TCI!
Diving at North West Point at eagle garden, 22 mins in and around 45ft deep Dave and guests had a great hammerhead shark slowly cruise up the reef towards, a beautiful sight and such a long encounter……
March starts with a bang! Our dive instructor, Mario and his group get off to flier. Its hard to describe or beat seeing a 10-12 foot great Hammerhead first thing in the morning in 15 foot of gin clear water.
Lucky Laura………right place at the right time AGAIN! Whales and dolphins up close and personal at Pine Cay! Truly magic. Does it get any better?
What a season! February is not even finished and nearly the whole Big Blue team has had multiple whale sightings and encounters! Our Stand Up guide, Ray was able to get his first in water encounter as well. Needless to say he is jumping for joy. Get down here and give us a call!
Whales at Water Cay, whales at Pine Cay, whales at Leeward, whales all over!!
let’s not forget the diving has been pretty spectacular too…West Caicos had multiple sharks, eagle rays and turtles and our friendly grouper who we haven’t seen for the longest time swam by for a kiss, cuddle and belly rub.
CAPTIAN LYNN : “after diving the Football field we had a call from Ben on Worldcat telling us to look out for a whale just beyond Eagle Ray Pass….we spotted him straight away as he was constantly smacking his fluke down on the surface of the water….as we got nearer he was waving his pectoral fin at us before rolling over to show off his belly…..I jumped into the water not knowing where he had gone but looked down to see him at about 25ft below me just chilling out….he hung out there for about 20 minutes for us all to see, then rose up gently before swimming off. We then headed to Aquarium where we heard a whale on the dive and Laura saw him from the surface while on the boat”.
Imagine doing your first ever dive, a DSD in fact and while your instructor is demonstrating skills you see and 40 foot humpback behind her. Well this is what happened to Laura and her student. EPIC. Stuff of dreams. The whale check the two of them out and then headed over to the wall to say hello to our dive group cruising the wall. UNREAL!
