We had a fantastic day with Donovan, our captain. I was most pleased with his willingness to tweak the excursion to our needs. We started out with snorkeling that my 6 year old loved. Donovan was in the water the whole time with the family pointing out nurse sharks and baracuda. He knew where to look for all the good... More

Every step of this tour was seamless. From booking and making deposit, to the directions to just stroll down the beach and be met by White Sands staff, to outlining what we wanted to do during our tour. They say, "Walk, don't run" but next time in port, I will run as fast as I can to begin a tour.... More

We had an absolutely amazing Supreme Snorkel Tour experience with our Captains/ tour guides, Donavon and Brent. They were extremely personable and very knowledgable about the Grand Turk area. We booked a tour on a non-cruise ship day so we had the tour all to ourselves. We snorkelled in a shallow reef and got to pet a nurse shark, we... More

We ended up finding them as we walked along the beach. These guys were amazing! It was by far the best excursion we had on that trip. We snorkeled 2 locations, dove for live conch, then went to a beautiful beach where we held and fed wild stingrays. I have referred 2 friends to find them as well and they... More

I booked this expedition separately from Carnival's bookings and was very glad I did. Other relatives from our cruise booked through Carnival and although they also enjoyed themselves, they were with more than 20 people on a big boat while we had only seven on a smaller faster boat. I had a stingray draped over my back on Gibbs Cay.... More

Having looked for a snorkel tour for some time, noted Whitesands as a highly rated excursion on Trip Advisor. Emailed Donovan and he was prompt with a response. Day of excursion we were nervous and there was no one standing at the cruise centre entrance and we trekked down the beach the 5 minutes to the stand in front of... More

This is the worst Whale watching excursion of our lives! Donovan, who is the Captain doesn't explain anything! We all should have worn our bathing suits because you get soaked! He never explained anything about the boat or life jackets, if there even was any or what we were about to experience in trying to find the whales. Safety was... More

What an adventure- first getting out to look for the whales was a great boat ride- wet and fun! Once out there we chased a bunch of whales - it was unique. That all was fun, but the best was going for lunch. On Salt Cay we had lunch, sitting in the little restaurant, overlooking the ocean, sand, no body... More

Wow! What an amazing experience! We were lucky enough to get a last minute booking (literally the day before!). We were met and warmly welcomed by Don and his first mate at the beach. Gibbs Cay was empty when we got there so the 4 of us got to enjoy a family of sting rays all to ourselves. Don was... More
