Get on Board Water Sports: Grand Turk Explorations
Get on Board Water Sports offers a number of day trips to Grand Turk, where the water is a clear, deep blue and the visibility is some of the best in the world. Surrounded by protected reefs, the less developed island, offers healthy reefs and plenty of fish to see through a snorkel mask. The company offers a number of tour options, which offer a variety of combinations that take you snorkeling on the Grand Turk Wall, where you can see turtles and nurse sharks as well as the usual tropical fish and coral and also stop at Gibbs Cay, where you can interact with sting-rays. Trips also usually include a stop to dive for conch before reaching Gibbs Cay. Guests are welcome to try it along with the guides, and once the cay is reached a demonstration in cleaning and preparing a fresh conch salad is given before tasting the local specialty. Private boat charters are also offered.
