Exclusive Supreme Snorkeling
This 3.5-hour Grand Turk excursion is a must-do for ocean lovers! The excitement starts as you board a boat for a ride through Grand Turk's beautiful turquoise waters to Coral Gardens Reef.
This shallow reef contains numerous soft and hard coral and an abundance of colorful fish. If the weather permits you might even get to pet or kiss one of the resident nurse sharks!
From there you will travel to the Amazing Wall, a coral shelf internationally famous with divers due to its dramatic shelf drops. The wall begins in the shallows at 20 feet, then drops to 70 feet, then 700 feet and finally to a depth of 7,000 feet and beyond.
During this Grand Turk tour you will snorkel along the shallow shelf and watch as fish dart in and out of the dozens of species of dancing coral and sea fans. This magical undersea world is also home to numerous sea life including manta rays, sea turtles and an assortment of beautiful reef fish. While here, swim to the shelf's edge to see divers disappearing into the blue as they descend lower and lower down the wall.
Then it's back on the boat for a short ride to Gibbs Cay with a stop to dive for live conch. Upon arrival at Gibbs Cay you will be greeted by curious stingrays. Here's your chance to get up close and personal with these graceful gliders.
Once back on shore, enjoy a live conch demonstration then sit back and relax as your captain prepares a fresh conch salad for you. After your meal, you can hike up the cliff for fabulous views of the ocean or just stretch out on the white sand with a rum punch and let the waves lull you to a deep state of relaxation before your return trip back to port.
This popular tour sells out fast! Book now for an incredible day in Grand Turk among spectacular coral, sharks and stingrays.

We were so glad that we booked this excursion! What a great time with a small group of people. We ended up in the same area as a group that booked on the cruise ship and there looked to be 50+ people on their boat. We enjoyed the entire experience, especially playing with the sting rays and having the conch salad. If we are ever to return we will definitely book this again!!

Did 4 stops, 2 snorkeling, 1 to get Conks and the final ashore at an island. 2 Captains, Gary and Eric did a great job. Trip included snorkeling , rum and fresh conk cevachie (sp?). Recommend this trip. Would definitely do it again.

I can not express how much we enjoyed this excursion. For one thing, it was a small group and we got a lot of personal attention. It was the highlight of our trip. I am not a good swimmer and was very reluctant to go snorkeling. When they realized this, they took a life ring and swam with me out to see the wonderful sights. Would highly recommend this excursion!

This was the highlight of our trip for myself and my 6 yr old snorkeler. The group was small. We snorkeled at 2 spots, including the wall, then a third spot for conch diving. Then heading out to Gibbs Cay was just a sight to behold. No one was on the island when we got there - just a pristine, beautiful white sandy beach, blue water, etc. Upon arrival, Eric prepared the conch, all the while entertaining us with the process. Ate conch salad, drank some rum punch, and then Gary worked his magic attracting a very large ray (there is no enclosure). My son also found a smaller ray that he followed non-stop until it was our turn to interact with the giant. When we returned, they let my son keep his conch and they cleaned it up really well for him. He is so proud of this giant gorgeous shell. I rarely do the same activity twice but I would definitely make an exception if I ever cruise back to this port.
Highly recommend. Easy to find. You can see the meet up location from the ship. Easy check in and gear fitting. We made 2 snorkeling stops. 1 was to "the wall" with a deep/steep drop off and 1 was a nice reef. We made a stop for the guide to dive down and harvest conch. We beached our boat in a stingray area. One guild prepared fresh conch salad for us. Another guide fed conch to the local sting rays. Great natural encounter with the sting rays. Highly recommended
