This is a seasonal Grand Turk Whale Watching Cruise Excursion; whale watching season is January through March annually.

Enjoy an exciting, educational and interesting time on this unique Caribbean whale watching shore excursion in Grand Turk. This cruise excursion is full of photo opportunities with pretty island shorelines, white sandy beaches, shore and water birds, turtles, dolphins, marlins, dorados and the stars of the day...the Caribbean whales! You never know what Mother Nature will show you!

Meeting your Whale Watch Excursion crew is just a few minutes walk from your cruise terminal in Grand Turk to where the captain and boat are waiting. This is not a big, slow boat shore excursion, crowded with a lot of other cruise ship sponsored shore excursion passengers - you will board your single hull whale watching excursion boat with a maximum of only 16 other passengers. The boat is open for great 360-degree viewing and there is lots of comfortable seating. Your English speaking, experienced captain will also serve as your whale watching guide.

You will board the whale watching boat and head out in search of the migrating whales visiting the waters off Grand Turk. This area of the Caribbean is where the humpback whales that travel from the New England coast come to spend the winter. The area around Turks and Caicos is where the humpback whales come to breed and give birth. Even if you have seen whales in Alaska where the whales are feeding, this is different. The whales have a completely different type of behavior as they "show off" and play the dating game.

Once a whale is spotted, the whale watch excursion captain will get you there quickly and quietly so not to disturb the whales. Keep those cameras handy because they might just have a show in store for you. Pods together, males battling over the same female, mothers with babies, full body breeches...you never know what you will see. Bottled water is included. Please take precautions with your electronics on the boat as there may be some spray.

At the end of this Grand Turk Up-Close Whale Watching Excursion, the captain will take you back to the meeting point on the beach where you may return to your cruise ship at your leisure after your memorable whale watching encounter cruise excursion in Grand Turk.

Long lasting memories

This was the highlight of our cruise. We travel on a boat not too far from the ship's pier and encounter a whale with a calf, it was amazing to watch them swim together. The captain was very careful to donĀ“t disturbed them but took us a bit closer to take a couple of pictures. On the way back to the pier, we saw a family of dolphins, they follow our boat for a while and gave some jump around us. it was magical!
