Staying on Grand Turk

Grand Turk Diving

 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 dives are selected based on current conditions and in consideration of "where the action is!" 

Gibbs Cay

 Visit this small uninhabited island just off Grand Turk for a stingray encounter and beach adventure! Take a packed lunch or have Smitty's wife, Enid prepare a picnic to satisfy all tastes. 

Bicycle Rentals

Explore Grand Turk on your own.  It's easy to get around on bikes.   

We  carry 24" and 26" wheel bicycles. We  also rent out snorkel gear if you want to stop at  one of our beautiful beaches and do some snorkeling as you tour around  the island. 

The Wall

 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.

Whale Watching

It is Whale Watching Season

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 Muchoir  Banks giving us the opportunity to observe them in their natural  habitat.  

The Tour

 

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 behaviour, snacks and a cooler with water and soda refreshments. 

About Whales

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.
