Turks & Caicos

An extension of the Bahamian archipelago, the Turks and Caicos are made up of 40 islands, 8 of which are inhabited.  Its unique geography includes miles of white sandy beaches, walls of limestone and lines of coral reefs (one of the most extensive reef systems in the world).  Exquisite reefs and crystal clear waters that hover between 74⁰F to 78⁰F in winter and 82⁰F to 84⁰F in summer make it one of the most impressive snorkel locations in the Caribbean.  A wide variety of flora and fauna can be found here including Caribbean reef sharks, horse-eyed jacks, spotted eagle rays, eels and Hawksbill turtles to name only a few.  During the summer months Manta Rays can be seen cruising along the limestone walls, while in the winter Humpback Whales migrate past the islands.  Whichever season you decide to visit the Turks and Caicos, the snorkeling surely won’t disappoint.

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).

9.Blue Water Divers Grand Turk- Blue Water Divers is happy to provide snorkel adventures for both novice and advanced snorkelers. Grand Turk is world-renowned for its amazing “wall”, beautiful water and spectacular marine life. We take pride in offering a safe, fun experience that can be enjoyed by everyone! Our snorkel-only boat trips last approximately two hours and covers two different snorkel sites. The first site is in shallower water (depths of less than 10 feet) which allows snorkelers to see the reef and marine life up close. These sites offer a good variety of corals and reef, as well as beautiful tropical fish. The second snorkel site is chosen from one of the over 40 sites along the famous Grand Turk "wall" in the marine park. The wall is actually a coral reef drop-off that begins in depths of 25-30 feet and plunges to depths over 7000 feet! Although the water is deeper at the top of the wall, and thus one is farther away from the coral and fish while floating at the surface, it provides a very lush reef habitat and typically even more fish life. Plus there is the added advantage of the spectacular view peering over the edge of the Grand Turk wall. E-mail us at info@grandturkscuba.com to reserve your trip.
