Here our Top 5 watersports activities in Turks and Caicos.

National Geographic named Long Bay beach in Providenciales as one of ’13 of the World’s Greatest Kiteboarding Spots.’ Beginners and experts will have a great day out with Big Blue Kite TCI
Swimming and Snorkeling
Snorkeling is good right from the beach at Providenciales. The Bight Reef and Smith’s Reef are the two main snorkeling sites accessible from the beach there. The Bight Reef is easy to access, but the more difficult to find Smith’s Reef offers much more to see. Snorkeling on a boat cruise can be excellent and better than the beach reef. Silly Creek Watersports can advise you on the best spots. Dolphins are regularly seen around the bays and humpback whales are in local waters between early January and Easter.
This exciting sport is similar to waterskiing and the flat wide open seas around Turks and Caicos are ideal for beginners. Keep your eyes out for friendly dolphin outriders.
Humpback whales are annual visitors to the waters of Turks and Caicos. Between early January and first week of April is your best time to see them. You can often take a boat trip with an operator like Big Blue Collective and get close up with nothing but snorkel gear.
