Turks Caicos Attractions and Activities
Humpback Whale Watching Trips
Around Grand Turk and Salt Cay, magnificent Atlantic Humpback Whales can be seen swimming near the water’s surface. January through April are the best months for whale watching. To catch a glimpse of a humpback whale, it is recommended to book a tour on a whale watching trip. During a whale watching trip, tour guests can learn more about these rare animals. It is not an uncommon occurrence to hear whales singing during a whale watching trip. This is a once in a lifetime experience.
Middle Caicos Caves
People visiting Middle Caicos can tour a unique system of limestone caves. This is one of the most popular attractions on the island. The interior of these caves are very picturesque.
Grand Turk Lighthouse
This lighthouse is still used to guide ships sailing toward Grand Turk. It is also one of the island’s most historical locations. Visitors touring the lighthouse can enjoy lunch at a designated picnic area and try to catch a glimpse of a humpback whale from the lighthouse’s observatory. Views of the North Creek are also available from this location. This is significant since some people argue it matches a description written by Christopher Columbus on his first voyage to the region.
Caicos Conch Farm
This is the sole conch farm anywhere on the globe. Here, visitors can observe Caribbean Queen conchs being raised. Visitors can also watch two trained and tame conches put on a performance. Conches are also sold at the farm. Many of the conches raised here are exported to food distributors throughout the world.
