In our last post, we introduced our friends at Caicos Dream Tours. Caicos Dream Tours operates a fleet of powerboats and catamarans that travel to some of the most spectacular places on the planet, offering the best Turks and Caicos tours.
The big question is, with so much variety, what are the “must see places” to visit in the Turks and Caicos Islands?
Here are three trips put on by Caicos Dream Tours that include pick you up right in front of The Sands at Grace Bay and fantastic exploration in some of the Turks and Caicos’ must-see spots:
Half-day Cruise to Provo’s Barrier Reef (Snorkel and Conch Cruise)
One of the reasons why Grace Bay Beach is so calm and clear is because it is protected by a barrier reef that lies about a half a mile offshore from our resort.
The barrier reef is one of the largest in the world, and stretches from Providenciales in the west to Middle and North Caicos to the east.
Taking a tour out to the barrier reef is a great way to experience the pristine environment the people of Providenciales are working so hard to protect.
Caicos Dream Tours offers two half-day trips each day, leaving at 9:00am and 1:30pm with complimentary snorkeling equipment, drinks and light snacks.
Adults ~ $89
Children (10 and under) ~ $44.50
Full Day Caicos Bank Cruise (Dream Day Getaway)
If you want to truly experience the wild, natural beauty of the Turks and Caicos, a full-day trip up the Caicos Bank to the east of Grace Bay and the Leeward side of Providenciales is the way to do it.
As its name suggests, Caicos Bank is notable for its shallow, crystal-clear water and white sands.
The full day excursion makes a stop at Leeward Reef for snorkeling right from the boat. Leeward reef is located off the northeastern, leeward tip of Providenciales and has been left relatively untouched by development.
The tour also explores some of the more remote cays that most visitors never get to see. One of these small islands is Fort George Cay, less than an hour by boat to the east of our resort.
Fort George Cay is an uninhabited island that once was home to a small fort that protected the Caicos islands from pirates. Some of the gun emplacements still remain, which makes for an incredible beachcombing experience.
As part of its full-day excursion, Caicos Dream Tours provides a delicious BBQ feast.
After lunch the tour resumes with snorkeling at the spectacular coral beds off Pine Cay and exploration stop at Half Moon Bay.
Private Tours to North and Middle Caicos
North and Middle Caicos are the two largest islands in the country. They lie to the east of Providenciales and are connected by a sandbar. Few people live on these islands, and they offer a chance to get a glimpse of the Caribbean of the past.
Both cays feature some fantastic scenery and equally fantastic beaches. Middle Caicos is famous for Mudjin Harbour’s beautiful beach, located on the northern shore of the island and the spectacular Conch Bar Caves.
