ShoreTrips says...

Grand Turk is a small island but the capital of Turks and Caicos. Everyone knows each other here!

Sure, we get it, when you are traveling in the Caribbean you want to get right to the beaches and blue waters. We'll get you there, but it isn't a port visit without exploring the culture and city around you! With an air-conditioned vehicle meeting you right off the pier, your expert guide will take you on an all-encompassing historical island tour. Learn about everything from the Tiano Indians who first inhabited the island to Grand Turk's only export, salt. Area residents take great pride in their 8-mile long island and their enthusiasm will certainly rub off onto you!

After your island introduction, we will take you right to the beach and onto a boat for the "sea" portion of your excursion. You will have a choice between deep-sea snorkeling or a stingray swim in Gibbs Cay. The snorkeling option will take you to two of the best spots off the shores of Grand Turk, Coral Gardens Reef, and the famous Grand Turk Wall. The Grand Turk Wall is the 3rd largest barrier reef in the world and is home to parrotfish, chubs, jacks, and sometimes even the Atlantic Mackerel. If snorkeling isn't your thing, mark yourself down for the Stingray Encounter in Gibbs Cay. Here your guide will walk you through how to interact with some of the most intriguing sea creatures in the Caribbean. We wouldn't ask you to hold onto a stingray for over an hour so feel to free make your way to the nearby beach and lay out with your towel. Soak in that Vitamin D.

When heading back to the cruise ship pier you can walk away knowing you have taken in everything the Caribbean has to offer. Crystal clear waters and that long-lasting Caribbean welcome.
