EXPLORING THE WATERS
Situated above the warm Caribbean Sea, and just inside the Atlantic Ocean, the Turks and Caicos are surrounded by a vast expanse of deep blue waters to explore. With continual trade winds and a warm climate year-round, sailing in the Turks and Caicos is a seafarer’s delight. For those lucky enough to sail in the winter months, thousands of humpback whales can be seen on their annual migration and dolphins are regular playmates to boats at sea. Coming to harbor at the South Dock of Providenciales, sailing vessels bring with them passengers sharing grand tales of windswept adventure.
Perhaps the greatest lure for sailing around the Turks and Caicos Islands is the essence of exploration. With over forty islands and cays, and only eight of which are inhabited, secluded, pristine beaches offer a world of unmatched beauty to be discovered. Set your anchor and run away to a private beach for a while before setting out again to sail across some of the purest waters in the ocean.
OPTIONS FOR SAILING IN THE TURKS AND CAICOS
No matter what your vacation style, sailing in the Turks and Caicos offers it. Catamarans, with their crisp white sails bright against the beautiful blue waters, are a popular sailing option, and half- and full-day private rentals are available from several charter companies on the island. For those looking for a luxury sailing vacation, more distinctive boating accommodations, catered meals, and secluded island destinations can be arranged. Several combination packages are available which include snorkeling, diving, and fishing excursions. Hobie Cat rentals offer an easy-to-master sailing adventure, and after a lesson, you can take the small craft out on your own for the day. Parasailing is another exciting way to enjoy the shimmering waters of the Turks and Caicos Islands and personal and group excursions are available from Providenciales. No matter how you travel, set sail across the waters of the islands for an unforgettable experience.
