Turks & Caicos Yacht Charter Highlights
Providenciales - Provo is probably the most famous destination in Turks and Caicos, not least because Conde Nast continues to rate the beach here as 'the best in the world', year after year. Provo indeed offers the best of this entire archipelago: not only is it framed by incredible diving and snorkelling sites, but it's also dotted with an array of world-class resorts along its gorgeous coastline. If you only had one day to spend in Turks and Caicos, this is where you'd want to be! Diving in the morning, indulging in a massage at Spa Tropique before lunch, delighting your taste buds on mouth-watering lobster at Caicos Cafe, playing a round of golf in the afternoon at the Provo Golf Club and squeezing in a bit of duty-free shopping in Grace Bay before having sundowners on the beach. How's that for an unforgettable Turks and Caicos yacht charter day?
Home to an array of luxury resorts, including The Palms, Seven Stars and The Sands at Grace Bay, Providenciales is an ideal starting point for your Turks and Caicos yacht charter. Just make sure you include a few days' stay here either before or after your Turks and Caicos yacht charter trip to really appreciate all it has to offer.
Scuba Diving & Snorkelling - A SCUBA diver and snorkeler’s paradise, Turks and Caicos are literally one enormous coral cosmos, brimming with sea life, underwater coral walls, and seemingly unending reefs. Each of the main islands boasts dozens of sites just off their pristine shores, from the famed 7,000 feet deep Grand Turk Passage coral wall, to Caicos' Smith's Reef and the Molasses Reef Shipwreck, the reputed oldest European shipwreck in all of the Americas. With an Amphitheater hiding blue parrotfish, queen triggerfish, sea urchins, groupers and an abundance of turtles, as well as breath-taking black coral in the aptly named Black Forest, diving and snorkeling are arguably the most rewarding activities in the Turks and Caicos. Above all else, this is what attracts the most amount of visitors to Turks & Caicos scuba diving charters.

Whale-watching– Book your Turks & Caicos scuba diving yacht charter trip between January and March and you'll be visiting in prime whale-watching season. Include a stop-over in Salt Cay and Grand Turk to admire pods of humpbacks on migration through the Turks Head Passage.
History & Culture – The Turks and Caicos may be a nature lover's paradise, but that doesn’t mean you won’t find historical and cultural attractions to complement the stunning scenery. From visiting the world's one and only conch farm to wandering through the historical ruins of 200-year-old cotton and sisal plantations, not to mention visiting the very interesting Turks and Caicos National Museum, you'll find plenty to see if you wish to spend a few hours away from the sea during your Turks & Caicos scuba diving yacht trip.
Superb Beachcombing - Admittedly, it may take some convincing to get you away from all the glorious beaches for which the Turks and Caicos are so renowned . Conde Nast may have named Grace Bay Beach as the most spectacular in the world, but fact is that every beach you'll come across during your Turks & Caicos scuba diving trip will take your breath away. Well known stretches like Grace and Taylor Bay, Leeward Beach and Sapodilla Bay may make the headlines, but there are countless hidden coves and stretches of sparkling beaches that you can discover aboard your Turks and Caicos yacht charter.
With so many islands to discover, your itinerary can be as varied as your moods, so go ahead and put a Turks and Caicos yacht charter vacation right at the top of your must-do list. With convenience, ease of access, sublime beauty and endless sunshine, there isn’t a sailor on earth who wouldn't want to visit more than once.
