THE FULL BOUNTY
Board the boat at the beach right next to the cruise terminal and head out for a two and a half hour tour along the west coast of Grand Turk and then on to the Gibbs Cay/ Sting Ray Fantasy.
Our first stop is a guided reef snorkel where our professional local guide will get in the water with you in 6 to 10 feet of water and show you around the reef and point out the beautiful fish, lobsters, turtles and friendly Nurse sharks. The friendly Nurse Sharks will come up for a closer look at us.
Secondly we head off to the edge of the wall and show you the continental shelf reef for some more snorkeling in one of the most beautiful spots around the Turks Cays. This reef is home to jacks, Angel Fish, Turtles, Barracuda, Snappers, Groupers and occasionally a nurse shark will pay us a visit.
Our Third and final stop is the island of Gibbs Cay, home to Grand Turk's oldest and largest Southern and rough tail sting rays. At Gibbs cay your captain will do the sting ray call and the rays will come over and swim around and rub on you in hopes of a snack. They are very friendly and accustomed to swimming and playing with people. However they are wild animals and we must handle them with care.
On busy days we do the trip in reverse so that we beat the crowds and visit with the stingrays before the crowds arrive. Chips and Salsa, Bottled water and Rum Punch served on all trips.
