Boat excursions are often one of the highlights of a Caribbean vacation. It’s hard to resist the chance to skim across turquoise coloured water under the warmth of the sun, with a refreshing breeze keeping the heat at bay and stunning scenery greeting you at every turn.

Turks and Caicos Sailing and Boating

“You spend time on land. You live life on water.” That adage is certainly true in South Caicos, where for centuries the island was connected to the world only by boat, and the local economy relied heavily on fishing. Today, the water has become an attraction as much as a vital component of island life, as visitors enjoy Turks and Caicos boating in South Caicos for fishing and dividing adventures.

Turks & Caicos Barrier Reef

A coral reef is a living, underwater ecosystem that consists of coral and is built by tiny marine animals. Coral reefs thrive best in clear, shallow, warm waters, although they are also highly sensitive to changes in water temperature.

Water Sports On South Caicos

If you are seeking a vacation where you can spend every moment possible on the water, you will love the pristine conditions and variety of water sports on South Caicos. Whether to choose to have fun above or below the water’s surface, you will enjoy crystal clear, turquoise coloured water and a pristine marine environment.

South Caicos is located on the third largest barrier reef in the world. Thanks to a relatively low profile in terms of popular Caribbean destinations, the diving conditions are simply fabulous. Divers can take a short five-minute boat ride from the shore at East Bay Beach and reach the reef. The short distance to the reef provides an opportunity to do a morning dive, return to shore for lunch, and then do a second dive in the afternoon.
