We took a private charter to snorkel here, avoiding the cruise ship cattle boats. We had a great time, saw many fish, beautiful coral and even some friendly nurse sharks. It's a great stop!

We purchased tickets for semi sub at grand Turk. You have to be tendered out to the reef about a mile from the pier. What's even better is it's air conditioned and you don't get wet even though you five feet under water. Once back on Grand Turk island, go get yourself a margarita at jimmy buffets place. You will...

We really enjoyed snorkling here. It was alot of fun, and the quantity of fish to observe was incredible. Bring your camera and let the fun begin, under water that is.

Having scuba and snorkeled in different parts of the world, this was so-so ... but, if you're from a place where you don't normally see tropical fish, etc., I'm sure you will enjoy your visit. I did see several varieties of fish, including a 5 foot nurse shark, but there are several areas of the reef, which were dead. Boat... More

The famous Grand Turk 7,000-foot Wall comes just 20-30 feet short of the surface here, so it's a great place to snorkel and view the healthy corals, sponges, and reef fish, as well as glance into the deep, where you might see big fish, even whales. Better yet, scuba dive it!

We were on our way to Gibbs Cay with Grand Turk Divers and stopped here to snorkle the wall. Great fish! We even saw a turtle.

First of all, we were stupid and swam all the way to the reef. That's a long swim, especially when the current was rough. By the time we made it to the reef, we were totally exhausted. I had read that this was the best place to see fish and turtles, but we barely saw anything. The fish that we... More
