Ultimate Turks and Caicos Snorkeling Tour
From USD 65.00
Lowest Price Guaranteed
Overview
Booking this tour gives you access to two very different snorkeling experiences: one over a shallow coral reef and the other at the edge of a precipitous drop-off. The two sites allow snorkelers to see different types of marine life in a single tour, with all snorkel equipment and instruction provided. Hands-on guides mean that even beginners can participate.
What to Expect
After meeting your guide and group at the departure location, get properly fitted for a mask, fins, and snorkel.
Stop first at the Coral Gardens Reef, a shallow reef that’s a great learning spot for beginners. Dive in with your instructor and explore the underwater world populated by colorful fish, slow-swimming turtles, and soft and hard corals. You may even see a nurse shark gliding by if the conditions are right. Take as much or as little instruction from your guide as you need and feel free to ask any questions.
The second stop that locals call "The Amazing Wall" provides an opportunity to see marine life that live in deeper water, where the coral shelf drops from 20 feet (6 meters) to almost 7,000 feet (2,134 meters).
Finally, return to shore with a good picture of the variety of marine life in Grand Turk's underwater world.

Awesome snorkeling!

We booked this through our cruise ship and it was fantastic! The crew was great and the two sites were awesome. (We use our own full-face snorkel masks) We would do this again.

Excellent snorkeling tour. We saw retrieval of conch shells, held a manta ray and ate conch pico de gallo. Instructors were very knowledgeable. Coral all over the Caribbean is less than spectacular due to frequent storms and sand stirred up but it is recovering and...More

This was the best part of our vacation!

Captain Craig & Gary were great and the trip was fantastic. Both of my kids, ages 8 & 14 had fun with the stingrays. This was well worth the money!
