Dive the Grand Turk wall where visibility most often exceeds 100 feet, and reef architecture is diverse featuring tunnels, archways, pinnacles, valleys and overhangs. Daily dive sites are selected based on current conditions and in consideration of "where the action is!"
As you cruise the Grand Turk Wall you will find a variety of marine life inhabiting this lush and colorful setting, and large pelagics are frequently spotted. Winter season features a Humpback Whale migration and in summer, Manta Rays can be spotted feeding on plankton and small fishes along the wall. Year round it is not uncommon to see turtles, dolphins, eels, octopus, crabs, lobsters, stingrays and eagle rays and of course a wide array of tropical fish.
We offer several boat charters to choose from:
Gibbs Cay Experience
Green Flash & Champagne Cruise
A population of humpback whales migrate from the cold waters of Iceland and Southern Greenland to the Silver Banks and the Turks Bank, where they mate and give birth each winter. During this period and after giving birth, the whales travel around on the Turks, Caicos and Mouchoir Banks giving us the opportunity to observe them in their natural habitat.
This tour is aboard our 28' World Cat power catamaran. This is a safe, dry, comfortable way to go offshore to see the whales and provides the safety of twin engines and hulls. There is ample seating and two bimini tops for shade.
Please note that if you are prone to seasickness, this tour may not be for you.
All tours include, a presentation on whale behavior, snacks or packed lunch and a cooler with water and soda refreshments.

The humpback whale's scientific name is Megaptera novaeangliae. Megaptera novaeangliae is Latin for "big wing. Humpback whales' "big wings" are their enormous pectoral flippers. A humpback's pectoral flippers are the largest of any whale, measuring up to 6 feet, a third of the whale's entire body length!
A humpback's pectoral flippers are bumpy and ridged. These bumps are called tubercles.Tubercles may make the humpback's flippers look awkward, but they are an excellent adaptation to the whale's life in the ocean. The bumpy surface of the humpback flipper is actually much more hydrodynamic than a smooth flipper. As whales swim, tubercles disrupt the sheer pressure against the edge of the flipper and redirect the swirling vortices's into channels between the tubercles. This reduces the movement's drag and increases its lift.
A 4 or more hour tour allows for a leisurely tour that will show you some of the best snorkeling sites in the Turks & Caicos Islands. Your boat Captain and Personal Guide are at your service for the day. Your captain will choose the best spots to stop on the day due to weather conditions and passenger abilities.
Snorkel - we will point out marine life you may not usually see and educate you in our delicate eco-system.
Gibbs Cay- home to the stingray, trunk fish and other marine life is also a popular destination. To enhance your enjoyment we endeavor to stop on this uninhabited island when there are no other boats pulled into the shallows.
Please note we do not feed the stingrays.
