Sailing the Caribbean - Full Day Cruise
Duration: Full Day
One of the best ways to explore the beauty of the Caribbean coastline during your holiday in the Turks and Caicos Islands is by boat. On this exciting full day cruise, you will visit deserted islands, paradise beaches and spectacular reefs, enabling you to enjoy the natural beauty of this diverse country both above and below the water.
Nothing could be more relaxing than sailing on a catamaran across the sparkling turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean, feeling the wind in your hair and the sun on your face as we cruise past deserted islands and breathtaking beaches lined with lush swaying palms. Catamarans are the ideal boats for sailing the waters of the Caribbean, providing comfort, safety, plenty of shade and a spacious seating area. There is also a large trampoline for lounging in the sun and a unique bow ladder, which allows easy access on and off the boat.
Our first stop of the tour is Little Water Cay, otherwise known as the Island of the Rock Iguanas. This tiny, uninhabited island is home to the rare endemic Turks and Caicos Rock Iguana, which can be found nowhere else in the world aside from several islands in the Bahamas nearby. More than 50,000 of these unique lizards can be found in the Turks and Caicos Islands, the healthiest and largest population in the Caribbean. The highest remaining population can be found on Little Water Cay, which was declared a sanctuary in order to protect them. Visitors can tour the island by walking along a boardwalk built especially to promote eco-tourism. This tour is a unique opportunity to get close to these fascinating, friendly creatures without damaging their fragile habitat.
We will then sail onwards, stopping close to one of the Turks and Caicos Islands’ many coral reefs for snorkeling. The crystal clear waters here boast one of the most extensive reef systems in the world, which protects over 40 islands and cays. Combined with fascinating caves, spectacular walls and an abundance of marine life, the Turks and Caicos Islands is a world-class diving destination. The diversity of sea life will amaze you, revealing brightly-coloured corals, sponges and tropical fish, as well as sea turtles, manta rays, octopus, reef sharks and many more surprises. Exploring this breathtaking underwater world is an experience not to be missed during any Caribbean holiday.
Listen to the sound of the waves rushing beneath you as we glide onwards past more beautiful, secluded islands to Fort George Cay. This tiny island is part of a protected national park, and the remains of an 18th-century British fort can also be found here. Once the boat has anchored at the beach, a buffet lunch will be served onboard. Afterwards, you can enjoy free time strolling along the pristine white sands, looking for shells or just soaking up the sun. For those who can’t resist the alluring blue waters, snorkeling is available here too.

The winners of the 2017 World Travel Awards Caribbean and North America Gala Ceremony have been announced. The regional ceremony was due to take place in Turks and Caicos in the Caribbean last month, but it was cancelled due to the devastating Hurricane Irma. The winners were later announced by the WTA to celebrate the leading hotels, destinations, airlines and travel companies in the region.
Following the aftermath of the devastating Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean last week, the Hartling Group Resorts has announced that three of its resorts will reopen on Turks and Caicos at the end of the month. The resorts suffered no major damage but they are currently closed to repair damages caused by flood water and clear the debris from the landscapes gardens.
The tropical island nation of Turks and Caicos has become the fastest-growing tourist destination in the Caribbean.
