Turks and Caicos Islands Cruises

Home to breathtaking beaches, beautifully inviting waters, and unmissable snorkelling and diving opportunities, the Turks and Caicos Islands beckon you to an undiscovered Caribbean.

The country is made up of seven main islands and approximately 40 smaller islands. It’s Providenciales and Grand Turk that hold the majority of the country’s population though, and the latter island makes for the perfect Caribbean destination. 

Here you can dive into a world of clear turquoise waters, delicious fresh cuisine and endless activities. If you’re looking for a desert island paradise, you’ve found it!

Islanders feast on the wealth of seafood here, along with the Caribbean favourite of grits, a sort of boiled maize. Conch is the most popular ingredient, as it’s an easy catch, and you’ll find it in a wide range of dishes such as conch salad, conch fritters, conch chowder and more. Lobster and fish are also standard on most menus, while anything involving rum will wash it down nicely.

Highlights

Rich History

Your cruise to the Turks and Caicos Islands will take you to the capital, Grand Turk, a small island bursting with authentic Caribbean charm, preserving the look and feel of the Caribbean 40 years ago. Recognised as one of the first places in the New World where Christopher Columbus landed, Grand Turk is six miles long and just over a mile wide, and is blessed with uncrowded, pristine beaches, as well as many attractions to explore. 

 Experience the rich history and culture through a visit to the Turks and Caicos Museum, located in one of the oldest stone buildings of the island, holding chronicles of Grand Turk’s history from 700 AD. 

Grand Turk Lighthouse

If you’re feeling adventurous, head down to the prized historic site of the Grand Turk Lighthouse, located on the highest peak of the island and standing at 60 feet tall. Brought from the UK more than 150 years ago to help halt shipwrecks, this monument is definitely one to experience, leading you along cliff tops to a deserted beach. 

 

Marine life

 xx

Grand Turk is home to the world’s third largest reef, making it the perfect destination for any budding snorkellers.

Get closer to nature and experience life beneath the waves as you enjoy the opportunity to see colourful sponges and coral, an abundance of tropical fish and even the chance to catch sight of a stingray, dolphin or turtle.

One of the best things about snorkelling here is that you can just step right off the beach and encounter some of the most amazing underwater sights in the Caribbean within a few dozen feet. If you fancy venturing out a bit further, you can even explore Grand Turk’s famous reef wall – known simply as ‘The Wall’ – which is over 185 miles long and 62 miles wide.
