A popular Turks & Caicos hotel day trip that our guests really seem to enjoy is the half-day “Snorkeling Adventure Excursion” offered by Reef Peepers – that can be easily booked directly from our hotel.
On this tour you will embark on a power catamaran boat ride through the uninhabited cays and secluded beaches of Providenciales, with the opportunity to snorkel the barrier reef and experience firsthand the beauty of Provo’s underwater world. Our resort guests are first picked up by boat beachside, before embarking on this three and a half hour tour that includes use of top-quality snorkeling equipment and expert snorkel instruction, signature rum punch, bottled water and snacks as well as the opportunity to dive for conch and watch the crew prepare a fresh conch salad that will be enjoyed by all! Tour participants will also take a trip to Iguana Island for an up-close encounter with the island’s native rock iguanas.
Situated alongside the world-famous Grace Bay Beach, our pristine Turks & Caicos hotel location offers guests the opportunity to experience a snorkeler’s paradise that is just a few fin-strokes away. The beautiful coral reefs located just offshore are brimming with a multitude of vibrant coral, turtles, exotic sting rays and hundreds of dazzling fish including Peacock Flounders, Parrot Fish and Porcupine Fish to name a few. Grace Bay Beach is one of the few remaining unspoiled coral reef ecosystems in the world and the surrounding popular snorkel sites include the barrier reefs as well as two magnificent underwater snorkeling trails located at Smith Reef and Coral Gardens Reef.
This snorkeling adventure is guaranteed fun for the whole family! Even if you’d rather not get wet, there’s more than enough fun aboard the 40-foot catamaran that provides a protective canopy shade for getting out of the sun, plays Caribbean music to get you in the vacation spirit and provides a very comfortable ride so you can sit back and enjoy the stunning scenery and views of Providenciales from the ocean. The price of the tour is $90 for adults and $60 for children (ages 3-12). An additional fee of $5 per person is required to access Iguana Island – to help protect this endangered species site.
