    A newer terminal with the usual cast of characters. Off to the side is an interesting exhibit featuring the astronauts - especially John Glen who splashed down here after being the first to orbit the earth - this alone is worth a visit.

    If you have some spare time, this is worth a visit and a refreshment. Enjoyed reading about all the history as well as the views. The little bar offered drinks, snacks and food. I think it may have been the only “attraction” open on New Year’s Day on Grand Turk, and for that we were grateful!

    I had a private snorkel adventure with Jimmy form Wet Money tours on Jan 18th! It was the best snorkeling I had ever taken! Private is the way to go and this company its top notch! After the snorkeling .....with soooo many fish...we stopped at a small island where they feed Stingrays and have that as a private handling as well! Also had a person on the sand that made shells with conch fresh and made it right then and there! This was so awesome! Highly recommend instead of a boat filled with 30 people! Thanks again Jimmy!

    Our family had a great morning learning more about the island and seeing the historic points on horseback! Royal & Zeke were fantastic tour guides. The horses were laid back and very well behaved/trained. The highlight of the excursion was taking the horses in the ocean form the beach!!! Not only did we enjoy it, but the horses did too...that Caribbean sun had all of us feeling it! It was very cool to see them cool off from their hardwork carrying us! Definitely would recommend and would do it again! Thank you!!!

    Relief at its best in Paradise! If you travel to Grand Turk, book an appointment with Anna. She was amazing. She provided immediate relief and addressed my concern of lower back pain. Anna was able to get the right spots to provide immediate relief. After a few days of fishing, snorkeling and swimming, the Swedish massage did the trick.

    I recently spent 5 days diving with Blue Water Divers on Grand Turk and it was an amazing experience. The dive shop managers, Kathy and Henri, were incredibly organized and helpful. The dive masters, Nicky and Kingston, were knowledgeable and made sure everyone felt safe and understood everything about each dive.

    I highly recommend Blue Water Divers for a fantastic diving experience. It is an amazing place to dive. The team is professional, knowledgeable, and passionate about diving.

    I will definitely be back!

    James was a great tour guide and very dependable ride back to port. We stopped downtown to purchase some beautiful dresses and jewelry. And he told us lots of history of the island! He dropped us off for several relaxing hours at Bohio Beach Resort. I highly recommend James!

    I highly recommend diving with GT Diving Co!! My review is long overdue. I have been diving with Smitty and Jason at Grand Turk Diving Co for the past 8 years starting with my 7th dive (I just finished my 92nd dive!) They are the reason I really fell in love with diving. My first few dives after getting certified, I thought it was fine but I certainly wasn't bit by the bug. Until I dove with Smitty at GT Diving.

    Smitty is known as "a man of the island" and those who know him will fly in from all over the country time and time again (like myself) to dive with him. He is unparalleled at pointing out and showing divers all the great wonders that the ocean has to offer. And if you are interested in learning to be a better diver and/or about sea life -- he will teach you.

    I was a VERY nervous diver in the beginning but Smitty always kept me calm and I always felt safe -- which was HUGE for me. He even let me cling onto him when I did my first night dive there!

    I also did my Advance Open Water certification with Smitty at GT Diving. I have became a really good diver because of the instruction from both Smitty and Jason.

    Because I trust no one else more with safety and instruction (both Smitty and Jason) and know it was because of their underwater approach that I fell in love with diving, when my sister, brother-in-law and two nephews (12 and 15) wanted to get certified, I took them to GT Diving to do their open water dives last summer. Jason was their instructor and was excellent -- great instruction and very patient!

    It's a small shop and not commercialized. Their boat is small and not fancy - don't let that dissuade. They don't cater to cruise ships nor do they take out big groups so generally not more than 6 people -- which I prefer as I like the personal attention and learning how to become better. And I feel safer. Also unlike other outfits, you are not limited to 60 min. You'll find that many locals and ex-pats on the island dive with them. Chris, who manages the dive shop, is terrific and makes it easy to schedule.

    Don't miss the opportunity to dive with them!!

    I'll do the excursion with Papa J Tours again. They were so kind. We had four first time snorkelers in out group of six. They made sure we had a great time and saw some beautiful fish.

    My three teenagers and I planned this prior to our cruise in September. I contacted Wayne by email and made the arrangements several weeks before our departure. I had parasailed before but the kids hadn't. The crew was great and made sure that everything went smoothly. The view was amazing and it was a great hit with all of us. Even my teenagers were impressed. Unlike the cruise ship excursions, we received individual attention. After our flight we boarded one of their speedboats and went to two snorkeling areas which were beautiful. We ended our day swimming with stingrays near a small island off Grand Turk. The crew let the kids drive the boat which they all enjoyed. I highly recommend this company. It was a great day.

    You can catch this tour at the back of the cruise port. The driver is friendly and well informed and they take you to many of the highlights. Custom tours are also available.

    Awesome time the three Guides where great! Saw Sea Turtle, Stung Ray, and about a 6’ shark that they spooked up for us on the bottom. Wish it were longer, would do again!!

    This was my third trip in twelve months and have been able to dive, deep sea fish, whale watch and an assortment of trips.
    Boat is excellent platform for all and crews for different trips were all top shelf individuals skilled and attentive.

    We highly recommend Island Tram Tours. We had been to the island before and planned to walk around outside of the port. That is where we were asked if we wanted to tour the island in an open air team. The price was very reasonable and the staff so friendly.y (not pushy) and we immediately agreed. The tram had left but Doug drove us to catch up and gave us our own personal tour until we reached town. Wonderful! Then we hooked up with Tracey and the tram. There was plenty of spacing and we were in the open air. Tracey, our guide, wore a microphone so we could hear the very informative information shred. They took us all over the island and shared information we found interesting. I would hands down recommend them to anyone looking for a Grand Turk tour. A special shout out to Tracey for going above and beyond by helping an elderly couple to take pictures, etc.

    Based on our experience, we highly recommend them! Thank you all!
