Boating in the Turks and Caicos Islands
People come to the Turks and Caicos for our unbelievable beaches and crystal clear blue and turquoise waters. We have the third largest barrier reef in the world that protects our chain of islands and creates perfect tranquil waters for just about all watersports enthusiasts.
We get asked a lot about who to go out on the water with and so without further ado, here is a list of our favorites and what they offer.
What sets these guys apart from other tours is how they cater to families with young kids; there are water slides, diving boards and tubes on board. Rates start at $90 per person plus tax to join a public trip and $1100 plus tax for a four hour private trip.
As mentioned they also offer parasailing. Fly 500 feet above the Caicos blue waters and get the bird’s eye view of the islands.
The Atabeyra has a very shallow draft in the bow which allows this vessel to comfortably and easily pull up on any beach. It’s 69’ length offers the most deck space of any rentable sailing vessel in the islands and it’s crew are some of the best.
Beluga offers full and half day cruises, sunset cruises, snorkeling trips and beach escapes.
Big Blue Unlimited
Big Blue offers scuba diving certifications, private scuba diving trips, snorkeling, exploring some of the other islands (by boat and land), kayaking, paddle boarding and kite surfing.
They have a fleet of boats and a large team to that specialize in all of the above mentioned sports.
As the boat is a Catamaran there is also a lot of deck space and comfortable loungers under a large shade. This is a perfect boat for a slow cruise family full or half day on the water.
Caribbean Cruisin is based in Blue Haven Marina on the East end of Provo. Caribbean Cruisin offers the island’s only ferry service to some of the neibouring islands like North Caicos and South Caicos but also an array of land and sea excursions. They offer large and small captained boats as well as jet ski tours.
