About
Booking this tour gives you access to two very different snorkeling experiences: one over a shallow coral reef and the other at the edge of a precipitous drop-off. The two sites allow snorkelers to see different types of marine life in a single tour, with all snorkel equipment and instruction provided. Hands-on guides mean that even beginners can participate.

Highlights
  • Two very different Grand Turk snorkel stops with transportation in between
  • Included use of mask, fins, and snorkel means passengers can travel light
  • Bottled water to refresh swimmers between stops provided
  • Receive as much or as little instruction as you want from the guide
What to expect
  • After meeting your guide and group at the departure location, get properly fitted for a mask, fins, and snorkel. Stop first at the Coral Gardens Reef, a shallow reef that’s a great learning spot for beginners. Dive in with your instructor and explore the underwater world populated by colorful fish, slow-swimming turtles, and soft and hard corals. You may even see a nurse shark gliding by if the conditions are right. Take as much or as little instruction from your guide as you need and feel free to ask any questions. The second stop that locals call "The Amazing Wall" provides an opportunity to see marine life that live in deeper water, where the coral shelf drops from 20 feet (6 meters) to almost 7,000 feet (2,134 meters). Finally, return to shore with a good picture of the variety of marine life in Grand Turk's underwater world.

Great snorkeling afternoon!
Feb 2020
We really enjoyed our snorkeling excursion with Exclusive Escapes. They gave perfect directions on how to find them from the cruise ship pier, just a short walk to a boat-shaped building. They helped us get discounted beach chairs for the morning since our excursion would be leaving about noon. When it turned out that our excursion was ready to leave earlier than scheduled, they even found us about to have lunch and waited for us to join the group. The tour itself was really nice. We snorkeled for about 30 minutes each in 2 locations, away from the cruise ship crowds. Something we liked about them compared to others we have used over the years is the helpfulness of their guides in the water. They led us to the more interesting areas, including the “wall”, where the ocean floor drops from a few feet deep to 7000 feet. It was amazing to see the contrast between a floor of coral and a view of no floor at all. We would definitely use them again and recommend to others.

Wonderful excursion
Jan 2020
We booked this excursion through Carnival Cruise Line. We had an absolute blast. We rode out to the drop off and snorkeled for about 45 minutes. The water was clear and there was fish everywhere. We then took a 30 minute boat ride to a small island where the sting ray are. That was beautiful as well. My wife got to kiss a sting ray and we had rum punch and conch salad on the ride back to port. Would definitely do again. The captain and other guides were friendly and made us laugh through out the experience.

It was perfect! We saw Live conch shell, star fish, dolphins and sting rays! The water was beautiful and sooo clear! They even said it’s usually clearer! Captain Eric and Gary were great! They are committed to making sure we had the best time out there! The guided snorkeling was amazing! We had an amazing conch salad with rum punch as well! Gibbs Cay was beyond beautiful!

Amazing excursion
Nov 2019
This was by far my best excursion on my week long Caribbean cruise. Despite a slight delay due to one of the crew's boats having mechanical issues ... about 20 of us got into 2 boats and headed out to the coral reef site and spent time exploring. Plenty of fish and colorful corals. The second site was even better, as the reef was situation next to a drop off in depth of the ocean ... not sure how far down it was ... but the sight of the reef next to the drop off was a bit breathtaking. The guides had brought bottles of food for the fish, and took the time for each of us to experience swarms of fish near our faces as they squirted food close to us. Note: keep your fingers tucked in so the fish don't think your fingers are food!!

Although I hadn't initially planned on adding on the stingray package, I'm SO glad I had the opportunity to go, as we got back in the boats and headed out to sea towards a small little island. Somewhere in the ocean our guide Martial dove into the sea to gather 4 large Conchs for us to have lunch. He pulled up a HUGE starfish as well, we took pictures then put him back. As we continued on ... a dolphin started following our boat, and at one point was so close I could have probably reached down to pet him!

Then we arrived at the little island, and Captain Eric demonstrated how to get the conch animal out of the shell, what part was good to eat ... then proceeded to cut up the conch meat and added it to a Tupperware full of chopped onions, peppers, spices, etc. We fed the remaining bits of conch to the 2 nearby stingrays (who acted like puppies around Martial and the other guides), and got to touch them and interact with them. Plenty of time for pictures, rum punch served with our conch salad lunch ... also enough time for a hike up the hill on the island to see the 360 degree view ... bliss. Definitely do this tour and add on the stingray option!

Great Experience!!
Jul 2019
As everyone else says, this was an awesome experience. The staff was the most courteous we have encountered and very knowledgeable of the area. We initially signed up for the 2 hour excursion. They mentioned that we could continue if we wanted but by no means did we feel pressured. The first 2 hours were so much fun that it was a no brainer to do the next 1.5 to 2 hours. Had a great time getting to know the staff. Oh and the snorkeling was fun too!

Booked this excursion for our day in Grand Turks. We have never been here before and this was the first time we have booked an excursion not tied to the cruise line. This trip turned out GREAT. Vosco our capiton and Listin our first mate were super. This was a guided snorkel but we swam a lot and had alot of freedom within the group, only 10 of us so quite private and very personal. The meet up spot was just like they described in the directions and easy to find and very helpful once on site to get us all going. This trip went beyond our expectations and I would book it again if we come this way. Very smooth and very fun. Great job.
