Come experience and see some of Grand Turk Island's beautiful marine life. Enjoy a guided snorkeling excursion at one of the best Grand Turk snorkeling sites, the famous Amazing Wall.
Just yards from your cruise ship pier in Grand Turk, your friendly snorkeling shore excursion staff will be waiting for you to get checked in. Then you will be taken by snorkel boat to the Amazing Wall the deepest part of the West Caicos Walls, an area of sea walls, canyons, and pinnacles in the ocean.
The Turks and Caicos Islands are home to the third-largest barrier reef in the world. As you make your way to the snorkeling site, you can enjoy the beautiful turquoise waters of Grand Turk and the beautiful coastline. Once you arrive at your destination marvel at the various bright colorful reef fish and a variety of soft and hard corals. Should the weather permit, you might even be able to see one of the reef's resident nurse sharks.
This is a coral shelf where the depth starts at just 20 ft then drops to 70 ft, then another drop off at 700 ft, and finally an astounding fall off to 7000 ft and beyond. The views at these drops are breathtaking. You will be able to see marine life such as soft and hard corals, sea fans, colorful reef fish of all sizes, and perhaps even a few turtles.
After the Amazing Wall, you will take a 30-35 minute ride to Gibbs Cay, which is an uninhabited island with powdery white sand beaches and offers the deserted island feel you often dream of experiencing when vacationing. Also known as Stingray City, this is the ideal place to encounter the Southern Stingrays that come looking for a "fish treat handout" from the snorkel excursion guides. The shallow, warm water is perfect for you to kneel on the sandy bottom, stand, or even snorkel above to watch and interact with the rays.
On the way to Gibbs Cay, your shore excursion captain will dive for a live conch and then prepare a fresh conch salad for you to enjoy.
When your adventure excursion comes to an end, the boat and guide will take you back to the meeting point next to your Grand Turk cruise ship pier after your fun day shore excursion.
