Snorkeling is one of the most highly recommended activities while visiting the Turks and Caicos Islands. The two groups of islands in this area are separated by a deep water channel, The Turks Island Passage. Because of this channel, The Turks Islands are often a great place to see migrating humpback whales. The Caicos Islands are encompassed by a substantial barrier reef that is home to a large variety of coral, tropical fish, conch, and other beautiful sea life. Due to the large size and somewhat irregular shape of the reef, the Turks and Caicos Islands offer an abundant variety of ocean conditions and marine terrain, creating a unique and spectacular experience for visitors of all ages.
We suggest you experience snorkeling in Turks and Caicos through our Snorkel and Conch Cruise. While snorkeling near the beach may be more easily accessible, to get the best visibility, you’ll want to travel further out from the shore where coral formations are far superior, and the likelihood of seeing larger sea animals is much higher. Our Turks and Caicos snorkeling tour will take you cruising along the pristine blue waters of Grace Bay, snorkeling along the barrier reef and the Caicos Bank, then finally a stop at gorgeous Half Moon Bay where we will make you a delicious conch salad made from the conch caught on the trip!
