Boating Guides / Turks and Caicos Boatsetter Destination Guide

Turks and Caicos

Turks and Caicos is a very popular tourist destination, and rightfully so with its white, sandy beaches adorning the shores of two groups of tropical islands with the smaller Turks Islands, and the larger Caicos. Both of these groups are located in the Lucayan Archipelago, around 650 miles southeast from Miami. The best time to rent a boat in Turks and Caicos is from December to April, because hurricane season starts in June and lasts through November, and the rest of the months are too hot. Whenever you decide to go, you can rest assured that you will have an amazing time spent at the islands’ numerous attractions with the perfect Turks and Caicos boat rental.

 

DESTINATION GUIDE

Visit the must see Grand Turk Lighthouse and Cockburn Town

Cockburn Town is the capital of Turks and Caicos, and it’s an island on its own. It is also a home of the 18th century Grand Turk lighthouse. This historic site under the protection of the National Trust is a perfect place for an afternoon trip with your Turks and Caicos boat rental. Around the lighthouse, there is a beautiful mangrove forest that keeps the shoreline from eroding. If you want to explore Cockburn Town before you head back to your boat, you can go visit Her Majesty’s Prison and the adjacent museum or learn about Turks and Caicos history in the National Museum.

Explore the world-famous shipwrecks

These islands are home to the many shipwrecks that surround them, and if you rent a boat at Turks and Caicos with an experienced captain, you can make sure to visit all of the wrecks in utmost safety. The oldest one in the area is the Molasses Reef Wreck, dating from the 16th century, and it is also the oldest European shipwreck in America. The La Famille Express at Caicos Banks and Mega One Triton on Governer’s beach got stranded during hurricanes, and now became tourist attractions as well.

Underwater paradise of Smith's Reef

Smith’s Reef is by far one of the best snorkeling spots on Providenciales, located near Turtle Cove. Composed of several coral heads and reef systems, the explorer inside of you should rejoice as the site suits both novice and experienced snorkelers. The variety of marine life you can find depends on where you start your dive, from turtles and stingrays to rare fish and lobsters. And if that’s not enough to convince you, night snorkeling provides an entirely different world for sightseeing including large sea worms, squids, octopi and more. This truly is a place to anchor your Turks and Caicos boat rental and stay for a while.

Your Leeward Beach Private Excursion

No crowds? No problem. You can spot this place from sailing around the island on the northeast end of Providenciales. It serves less traffic than Grace Bay so it’s highly likely you’ll find that perfect, private piece of beach to relax on. The breathtaking scenery of clear waters and high-end resorts is matched only by the colors of the ocean water. The sheer surrealism of the photos you can find online is nothing compared to the starboard jump from one of our Turks and Caicos boat rentals into the crystal blue water. All in all, there’s no better way to explore the beautiful islands of Turks and Caicos then with the perfect boat rental. From sailboats to speedboats, there’s no better way to save money and take charge on the water. And if the sailboats and speedboats aren’t enough, you can always spend your vacation aboard one of our fully equipped yachts as an alternative to crowded resorts and hotels.
