Ultimate Snorkel

Come along on an unforgettable snorkeling excursion! We'll whisk you away in small groups on a short boat ride through the protected Columbus Landfall Marine National Park. You will get to visit two unique and pristine snorkeling locations on this Grand Turk excursion.

The first location is Coral Gardens Reef. It is approximately 15 - 20 feet in depth and filled with many tropical fish, such as the the Yellow tail snapper, white and yellow grunts, and the protected parrot fish. You may also have the chance to pet a Nurse Shark if they make an appearance. You will also get to experience a variety of Caribbean coral clustered formations and sponges at this reef such as the Brain Coral, Barrel Coral, and the Octo Coral that adorns the reef.

The second location is the famous Grand Turk Wall. Located approximately 1000 feet from the shore line, it is the third largest barrier reef in the world. Its coral shelf starts at 20 feet below the surface and goes down to more than 70 feet, and then falls off 7000 feet and beyond; it's just breathtaking to see this site. At the wall you will get to see many tropical fish, such as Parrot Fish, Chubs, Jacks, and often times Atlantic Mackerel cruising by. You will get to explore the undersea wonders of the coral formation environment throughout this snorkeling excursion.

Snorkel equipment including mask, snorkel, fins, as well as inflatable snorkeling vests are included (children's sizes available). There is complimentary bottled water on board. The boat does not have a restroom. Guests must be able to jump from the boat, and climb back into the boat via the boats ladder.

Reviewer: Carol Buote
Our snorkel tour was wonderful. There was just the 3 people in my family and one other person - plus the tour guide - on our tour. We loved the small group. The two snorkel sites were good and we saw lots of colorful fish and coral. They were easy and safe snorkel locations. My eleven year old son was a little nervous at first but got the hang of it and had fun.

The getting to the place where the boat was was easy. The guy there manning it was very friendly as was the assistant who helped everyone in the water. Absolutely perfect. Two great places to snorkel and the water was great and the guys were just terrific. There was only 9 of us (we saw the Cruise Ship's excursion for snorkeling and there had to be 50 people on a catamaran. Really so much better and personal.

Had a great time when we went. The Captain did a great job of getting the fish to come up to us. So many fish that you could not help but to touch them. Will go again when we go back for sure!

The snorkel trip was very fun. The guides were really helpful to those who had not been snorkeling before. We were a small group so the waters weren't crowded, which was very nice.
