Snorkel and Rum Tasting

Escape the crowds as you snorkel and relax at a small, intimate Grand Turk resort offering beach, bars, water activities, and the best restaurant on the island. After taking a taxi from the port area, you will arrive and be welcomed as a guest.

At check-in, the staff will schedule your snorkel departure. There are hammocks under palm trees, an uncrowded beach to comb, and a small beach bar where you can purchase a fruit punch or just sit and let the world melt away.

At the appointed time, you will meet your snorkeling boat at water's edge and head out in your small group, usually fewer than eight, to the famous Grand Turk Wall, 300 yards directly off the beach. Total time for the boat snorkel is approximately one hour. You will have the chance to see colorful sponges, coral, an abundance of tropical fish, and you may even catch sight of an eagle ray, stingray, turtle or dolphin. Your snorkeling gear is included.

In addition to snorkeling, your Grand Turk excursion also includes a tasting of the local Bambarra rums. The rum takes its name from the home of the African settlers who were delivered on the local shores aboard the wrecked slave trader Trouvadore in 1841. You will sample the a light rum, amber rum, including information of how to taste / appreciate these smoothly blended sugar cane rums. You will finish your tasting with a reserve rum that is a select blend of Caribbean rums aged in American oak barrels. After your tasting, you will be treated to a cocktail made with the rum you liked best from the tasting.

As this special site is not designed for crowds, there is a maximum number of spaces available each day for this Grand Turk shore excursion. Please book early to avoid disappointment. Tour duration is up to guest's discretion based on when they arrive and depart. It is the guest's responsibility to return to their ship by the ship's posted all aboard time.

4 StarsGood time. December 28, 2019

Reviewer: Doug
We enjoyed both the snorkeling and rum tasting. The taxi driver who took us out was very timely in getting us to & from the resort and informative in pointing out points of interest along the way. We did spend much time waiting at the resort for the single boat to take us out. Perhaps an additional boat would be helpful.

5 StarsHad a great time!December 05, 2019

Reviewer: Brenda Kliesen
Snorkeling was fantastic. I wish I had a camera so I had photos of what I saw. I also wish I could have snorkeled all day. The rum tasting was also fantastic!

5 StarsA lazy, crowd-free day...June 19, 2019

Reviewer: Stephen Tate
Would do this excursion again on the same trip without hesitation. Great folks at the resort, very few people there so a chance away from the crowds...one suggestion is make sure you have your transportation back to the ship set!

5 StarsLoved this place!May 30, 2019

Reviewer: Keri Sumner
This scuba resort was amazing. It was nice to get away from the large crowd of the cruiseline. The beach was an absolutely stunning view! The snorkeling on the shelf was beautiful, even got to see a sea turtle. The guides kept us away from the crowd and were excellent. Then we enjoyed the rum tasting which was fantastic. My fiancé really enjoyed the lunch here and believed it to be the best burger he’s ever had. We really had an amazing time and even the ride to the resort and back, we were able to learn so much about the island and culture!

5 StarsRum Punch!March 28, 2019

Reviewer: David
We couldn't snorkel because of the weather, and Ginny the owner graciously refunded that portion. The beach was beautiful. We did taste the rum, however, which was nice. The RUM PUNCH was OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD! Order a glass or Rosie's Rum Punch.
