Turks and Caicos Whale Watching
Majestic Whale Migrations in Turks and Caicos
The North Atlantic Humpback Whale migrates through our our warm Caribbean waters each year to mate and give birth. One of the most humbling and exhilarating Turks and Caicos activities, whale watching excursions run from late January to early April and offer the opportunity to view Humpback whales and their calves up close.
Knowledgeable guides will locate the whales and track their paths as they swim along the Columbus Passage between Grand Turk and Salt Cay. You will learn lots of interesting facts about their behaviour and feeding habits – and become an expert at spotting their tell-tale ‘puff of smoke’!
We are very fortunate to welcome this endangered species to our shores each year, and the chance of a whale encounter is an experience not to be missed.
Whilst it is common during the migration season to hear ‘whale song’ during a scuba dive, for a genuine close encounter it is advisable to take a boat excursion with an experienced guide.
Sit on Bohio’s sunny deck at the Ike & Donkey Beach Bar and enjoy one of the planet’s greatest wildlife migrations. Don’t forget to keep your camera ready for a spectacular breach!
