Island Snorkeling Adventures

All of our Turks and Caicos snorkeling trips are designed to offer the best experience, and we will adapt to all levels of experience- no matter if you are beginner or experienced snorkeler, we will cater to your needs and find a way to make your day snorkeling with us very enjoyable. Our Goal is to be sure that you will enjoy the best that these Turks and Caicos Islands have to offer. Turks & Caicos is truly a spectacular destination for snorkeling, as it is surrounded by spectacular barrier reefs. Not only you are going to explore unspoiled reef, and be able to observe an incredible variety of fish activity and reef scenery, but these Turks and Caicos reefs are also a great obstacle to navigators and ship captains, and there are quite a few modern and antique ship wrecks that we have discovered (some are proprietary markings by Fifi- owner of Island Snorkeling Adventures). We will visit these special snorkeling sites located throughout the Turks and Caicos bank & reefs. It is a fact, that after all these years of exploring (both diving and snorkeling out on the reefs), we have developed a great knowledge of our reef’s secrets and consequently many a ships agony. While visiting our beautiful island, be sure that you don’t miss the great opportunity and very unique experience that we have to offer. Have a pick at our various trips, and see which one suits you the best. We are looking forward to showing you around and being your honored guides.

Half Day "Snorkeling / Beach Cruise"

Either is an AM or PM trip, the Journey start with a Beach or Lobby Pick up. We pick up at any of the Grace Bay Hotels and Resorts. We pick you up either by our "coach bus" or directly by boat at the beach in front of your hotel- it depends on weather conditions and the Destination of the Day. You always get a great greeting, boat & trip description as you board our Boat and meet our staff before boat leave for the journey. A typical half day trip run for about 3 ½ hours, and include at least 2 pristine snorkeling stops. We also give you the option to stop on Iguana Island, and visit our local rock Iguana if you like.

This trip work well for people who have a packed schedule, with additional activities planned for the day besides the snorkeling. We don’t run "Routine Excursions", and you will have confidence that we will be exploring different reefs and beaches. For multiple trips or snorkeling excursions in one week, if you decide to do it several time in a week, we will make sure each day’s itinerary is different. Just ask our Captain & Crew and tell them what you have already experienced (what snorkeling sites you have been to already) with us or even with someone else, and we will work with you to find a new and different reef (sometimes there are limits based on weather conditions, wind directions, and if departing from North or South side of island).

History

French Cay is located in the Caicos Bank, straight south from Provo and southeast of West Caicos, all alone in the middle of the blue. In the 17th century the island served as a hideout for a brigand of the sea, Nau L'Ollonois, who ambushed and captured passing sailing vessels. At that time the island was named Cay Blondel. Blondel was a marine engineer in Haiti who had been commissioned by the French to study the possibility of building a lighthouse on this small island. The project never got off the ground. Today, French Cay is a peaceful sanctuary for migrating birds. Also found here is some spectacular reefs and fish life. Come and enjoy a great day of fantastic snorkeling on a clear turquoise water of a remote islands.

Whale Watch
February & March

Turks and Caicos Islands are in the middle of the humpback whale’s annual migratory route to the Silver Banks, a humpback mating and nursery area, north of the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean Sea. It is a 75 square mile shallow coral reef area, an underwater plateau of limestone. It is believed that the whales choose this area for birthing and nursing because of the numerous coral heads which break the surface providing protection from ocean swells. Some estimates show 3,000-5,000 humpback whales passing through the waters of the Silver Banks between December and mid-April each year, making it the largest breeding and calving grounds, often called a nursery, in the world. During this Time we have the Chance to see these Spectaculars Creatures along the Water of Providenciales and Our Sister islands of West Caicos and French Cay. Even though, we have a great chance to encounter this large mammal during our trip, we cannot guarantee 100 %.

Whale Watching is exiting, as everyone, must look out for a splash, or a blast of breath-spray, but it does require some low speed cruising along our shore in search of these creatures. Our Crew has been trained in how to approach these beautiful creatures at sea, and how to run our boats, without disturbing their pattern and course. We do take a break between the AM and PM search, for a delicious BBQ on a beach or Lunch on the Boat, as well as some snorkeling and swimming.

It is a great day at sea, searching for Majestic creature, and we always add some more excitement with snorkeling break and beach cruising.

snorkeling adventures Learn More About The Humpback Whale!

The humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) is a species of baleen whale. One of the larger rorqual species, adults range in length from 12–16 metres (39–52 ft) and weigh approximately 36,000 kilograms (79,000 lb). The humpback has a distinctive body shape, with unusually long pectoral fins and a knobbly head. It is an acrobatic animal, often breaching and slapping the water. Males produce a complex whale song, which lasts for 10 to 20 minutes and is repeated for hours at a time. The purpose of the song is not yet clear, although it appears to have a role in mating.

Found in oceans and seas around the world, humpback whales typically migrate up to 25,000 kilometres each year. Humpbacks feed only in summer, in polar waters, and migrate to tropical or sub-tropical waters to breed and give birth in the winter. During the winter, humpbacks fast and live off their fat reserves. The species' diet consists mostly of krill and small fish. Humpbacks have a diverse repertoire of feeding methods, including the bubble net feeding technique.

Like other large whales, the humpback was and is a target for the whaling industry. Due to over-hunting, its population fell by an estimated 90% before a whaling moratorium was introduced in 1966. Stocks have since partially recovered; however, entanglement in fishing gear, collisions with ships, and noise pollution also remain concerns. There are at least 80,000 humpback whales worldwide. Once hunted to the brink of extinction, humpbacks are now sought by whale-watchers.
