Turks & Caicos - "Top Side" Activities and Adventure

 

Below are just some of the activities and attractions that await you in the Turks and Caicos Islands. We will be happy to arrange any of these and more to complete your customized itinerary. Please contact us for more information.

 

BIRD WATCHING:

The salt ponds and inland marshes serve as excellent feeding grounds for resident and migratory birds. Search for Great Blue Herons, Flamingos, Osprey and Pelicans alongside Egrets, Terns, Frigates, Boobies and other water birds. As part of the National Parks system more than twelve small cays have been set aside and protected for breeding grounds.


170 species of bird can be found in the Turks and Caicos Islands from Pelicans and Flamingos to Osprey and Cuban Crows. The variety is staggering and the photographs that have been taken here have been published across the world. On North Caicos in particular the tidal flats on the South side of the island attracts scores of birds including wild Pink Flamingos that regularly inhabit the aptly named Flamingo Pond.

CAVING:

A visit to the caves on Middle Caicos is an unforgettable experience. The cathedral like limestone reaches down to underwater lakes and sculpted stalagmites and stalactites. Guided tours of the caves once home to the original settlers the Lucayans are available daily. Caves can also be found on the uninhabited island of East Caicos where people have discovered ancient petroglyphs or markings in the cave walls by the Lucayans.

GLOW WORM EXPERIENCE:

Two to three nights of each month in conjunction with the lunar cycle there is an event that takes place uniquely in the Turks and Caicos Islands; the mating of the glow worms. When these creatures mate they give off a luminescent glow which creates "Christmas in the water"! It is a truly exciting experience which is a once in a lifetime occasion for most people. The glow worms will mate and light up the water with a bright glow and create an electric atmosphere.

KAYAK ECO TOUR:

Explore the turquoise coastal waters and marine ecology around Little Water Cay as you paddle along the mangroves for a view of the fish and bird life with an experienced guide. Visit the rock Iguana sanctuary on Little Water Cay to see the Iguanas in their natural habitat; then journey to the Nature Reserve for a closer look at a variety of marine species where you may even see young sharks.

SEMI SUBMARINE TOUR:

The semi-submarine Undersea Explorer tour is an adventure that begins when you board the craft located alongside the Tiki Hut Restaurant at the picturesque Turtle Cove Marina in Providenciales. As you leave the Marina, the waters will start to come alive with many hundreds of different tropical fish and spectacular coral formations. And if you are lucky, perhaps sting rays, sharks or even the world-famous Jo-Jo the dolphin might make an appearance. If you are worried about going too deep - don't. The Undersea Explorer has been specifically designed to stay just above the water with a lower observatory 5ft below the waves allowing passengers to see the Beautiful by Nature marvels.

TOUR THE ISLAND OF PROVIDENCIALES:

A fine blend of a tour! A mix of history, culture and natural beauty. Drive through Blue Hills, one of the oldest settlements on the island which was built around a fresh water supply; it gives you a real feeling of a Caribbean village. Stop at Blue Mountain unfolds a panoramic breath taking view of the natural beauty of the island. Continue on to Cheshire Hall, the ruins of an old cotton plantation house built by Loyalists. Complete your day with a visit to the world's only Conch Farm, a totally unique experience! Tour the farm and see how the Conch is bred and grown. Do not forget to stop and say hello to Sally and Jerry, the world famous trained Conchs.
