Big Blue Collective is the Turks and Caicos Islands’ premier kiteboarding instruction, watersports adventure and eco-tour outfit. Experience the joy of learning and riding under the supervision of our professional multilingual instructors and guides in a truly world class destination.  Year round trade winds coupled with waist deep water and the latest gear make this kiteboarder’s dream a reality. Kiters love the options and conditions to progress their skill sets, and discovering all the kite terrain out there waiting, from the flats of the mangroves, to downwinders and winter wave riding sessions. 

With almost 25 years of experience, Big Blue Collective is unrivalled in its depth and scope in terms of tours, terrain and sound eco philosophy. The sheer obsessiveness and steadfast application of small groups and education makes for some truly wonderful experiences on, in or under the water. Paddleboarding, kayaking, snorkelling, scuba diving or kiteboarding are simply used as different ways to experience the natural splendour of these turquoise islands. So even if the wind is down or friends and family that don’t kite, you’ll have plenty of amazing options to chose from. #escapetheordinary


Crystal clear waters and endless turquoise seas… Over 40 islands offer a multitude of incredible locations to kite. The standout is Long Bay beach on Providenciales. This spot is hands down one of the best places in the world to learn to kite. The conditions here offer all the ingredients for a perfect kite holiday: a stunning, shallow beach, cross onshore winds and warm waist-deep water that stretches over a mile offshore. Downwinders and safaris are a must! Weave your way through the unspoiled natural environment and spot the turtles and dolphins along the way.


The trade winds blow a steady 15 to 20 knots, ideal for all types of riders, especially beginners and freeriders. With dozens of amazing places to kite there is something here for everyone, whether that’s riding a twintip, surfboard, a foil or a wing. Big Blue Collective is set up on Long Bay and sits on the perfect kite beach in terms of both location and prevailing easterly winds, an ideal spot for beginners. Jet ski assisted lessons only add to the ultra-professional hands-on learning experience the Big Blue team offer. But it doesn’t stop there, take a ride by motorboat on one of their unmissable adventure kite safaris or downwinders.


The winter months (Dec-Apr) are more volatile with North American westerlies often pushing far enough south to allow some solid days boosting on 10m kites or perhaps playing in the waves on the north side of the islands. The warmer summer months (May-Aug) offer longer days on the water with trades that, while perhaps not as strong, are often more consistent for consecutive riding days.


Big Blue Collective offers many opportunities for those no wind days, from paddle boarding and kayaking ecotours, snorkel and diving adventures, as well as exploring some of the other islands by boat. Explore North and Middle Caicos by car or venture out for some blue water fishing for wahoo and tuna. If you need a break from the sun and the sea, then exploring some of the local bars and restaurants is also a great way to spend any no wind day.

Getting There

Arrival from the US is super easy and many major European airports too. Fly into Providenciales (PLS) and the easiest option is to hire a car or taxi. We’re pretty easy to find, just 10 minutes away from the popular Grace Bay area.

Kite Options

For the lighter rider a 7/9m and 10/12m, while the heavier riders should bring 9/10m and 12/14m, allowing for lighter wind days and insane kite and wingfoiling conditions too. Big Blue also rents kite gear.

Which Wetsuit?

No need for a wetsuit, however shades, a hat and sunscreen (eco-friendly) and a rash guard/ sunshirt are essential!


Between 5 and 7 USD.

Typical Dinner

That totally depends on the vibe. Expect to pay around 25 to 30 USD at a barefoot beach bar and anything from 50 to 100 USD for something more upscale.

Late Night

It’s not a clubbing scene, instead we have plenty of bars to choose from for a chilled Caribbean experience.
