About Turks & Caicos
beautiful Turks and Caicos Islands are situated
575 miles (or 75 minutes) southeast of Miami. Covering
193 square miles of the Atlantic Ocean, the Turks and
Caicos Islands has the third largest coral reef system
and the best tropical beaches in the world, making it
a premier beach, diving and snorkelling destination
and an ideal location for romance, family vacations,
ecotourism and adventure seekers.
There are eight inhabited islands: Salt Cay, Grand Turk,
South Caicos, Middle Caicos, North Caicos, Providenciales,
Parrot Cay and Pine Cay. East Caicos and West Caicos
along with several other fascinating cays are uninhabited.
The Columbus Passage, 22 mile-wide channel, separates
the Turks Islands from the Caicos Islands. This 8,000
foot deep passage serves as major transit lines for
migrating *Humpback Whales, Spotted Eagle Rays, Manta
Rays, Turtles and Dolphins.
Excellent visibility, pristine reefs, abundant tropical
flora and fauna, fish and other marine life, quality
diving services and easy conditions make the Turks and
Caicos Islands a world class dive destination. There
is exceptional wall diving starting in shallow turquoise
water and dropping off into the deep blue giving a real
thrill. The reef is relatively close to the beach which
makes for accessible beach dives. Shipwrecks, old and
new further enhance these islands as an outstanding
*From late December through April, the entire Atlantic
herd of 2,500 Humpback Whales pass through the shores
on their annual migration to the Mouchoir Bank, just
20 - 30 miles southeast. During this period divers can
listen to an underwater concert of the whale's' songs.
