      Everybody gushes over Grace Bay (rightfully so), but Providenciales has so much more to offer. Take a kayak tour of Chalk Sound, located in Sapodilla Bay. The south side of the island has it's own beauty and glamour.

      Fun in the Mangroves
      This Kayak tour turned out to be a lot of fun. Wasn't sure before we booked it but if you are on the fence go ahead and do it. Marcus our guide is really good . He's funny and patient. Best of all it's not over strenuous. If fact it's super easy, they tow you out to the mangroves and you paddle around from there.

      A great way to blend in with the aquatic surroundings!
      This was an enjoyable experience and exceeded my daughters expectations. The photographer was experienced flying the drone and the picture quality was excellent.

      Don’t use this kayak company !
      Do not use this company for your clear kayak tour in Turks! They never called 24 to 72 hours in advance to give us a start time to the tour. Viator operator told us to use 11 AM, unfortunately that morning the company called us half an hour before they wanted to pick us up, which is 8:30 in the morning And we were still sleeping. we could never have been ready with such small lead time. Apparently, there is only one tour per day, which is at low tide, which is not stated on the Viator booking page. They hung up on us.

      Ripoff, No communication and No Refund
      Didn't get to go!! Had a 5pm 4/4 Clear Mangrove trip reserved and used GPS directions that were provided only to find that no one was there, small walkway with small beach. Called at 4pm Left msg and again 2 more times, no answer or call back. Called again next morning offering to do the tour Friday instead of a refund and still no response. Left message online via their chat function and no response there as well. No refund or contact by company has been made. Extremely disappointed, do not book with them!

      Cancelled
      We received a text message the day before that our kayak tour was cancelled because the guide was sick and that we could reschedule. We emailed, texted, and called but nobody responded. We were still charged. Never went. Still haven't received a refund.

      Read- Do not book this tour.
      My husband and I were very much looking forward to this tour but what a disappointment! They did not show up for our tour and did not communicate with us that it was canceled. From the beginning, it was not well organized as the address provided on the booking was their old address. We were able to find the new departure point from the help of locals and guides from other tour companies. Not only did the tour operators not call us to notify us that the tour was canceled but the only number provided on the booking was out of service. They refunded the money but without offering any explanation, ability to reschedule or apologies. The reviews were mostly positive, a few that reported communication issues which after our experience I’m surprised there aren’t more. We’ve traveled a lot, booked a lot of tours/adventures and never have we had such a bad experience like this one. We also understand that weather can cause tours to be cancelled or rescheduled. The complete lack of communication and inability to contact the company is unacceptable. Bottom line, we wasted 2 hours and over $50 in taxi charges for a lot of frustration and no kayaking. Suggest booking with Clear Bottom Adventures or Carribean Cruisin- both companies were extremely helpful and kind in contacting Turks Aqua Adventures to inform us our trip was cancelled. More details about our issues: 1) the location on our confirmation was wrong/doesn’t exist. After we arrived at the designated deserted location, we saw some people walking on the beach who informed us that they no longer allow kayak departures from that location. Our kind cab driver called around and found the correct location and brought us there. 2) The single number on our confirmation and on the Turks aqua adventures website was out of service. We called that number the morning of to confirm because it was windy and were concerned the trip may be canceled. We found a number of very nice locals who knew of Turks Aqua Adventures and had a guy’s personal cell number that they called to inform us that the trip had been cancelled after about an hour of guides/locals contacting the company.

      Fabulous time - lots of turtles
      Took kayak tour with family of 4 plus grandparents. We all had a wonderful time! Tour guide was very friendly and had lots to share. We got to see a lot of fish, a lemon shark, a sting ray, and too many turtles to count. If you love sea turtles and want to see a lot of them, this is the tour for you!!

      Great experience, great communication, especially around a reschedule due to weather conditions. Tour itself was great, as advertised. Recommend.

      Amazing experience!
      Amazing experience. It was the highlight of our trip. We rented a kayak and ventured out to iguana island and mangrove. We saw turtles, baby sharks (harmless) and many iguanas. We were allowed to keep the kayak the whole day and we took advantage of it! There was a little mix up regarding pick up location due to poor communication which was resolved. Overall very pleased with the experience.

      Clearbottom kayaks would skip
      Once in mangrove was relaxing . Booked 3 waited 45 minutes standing in parking lot for delay . Very disorganized . Guides did not coirdinate well. Chased turtles paddking in flat water randomly for 20 minutes before going to mangroves.

      I highly recommend this tour
      Based on the fantastic catamaran snorkeling trip that we booked through Viator, my wife and I booked the Mangroves Kayak Tour. We immediately bonded with the guys handling equipment when they offered us a kayak suited to our experience - it made all the difference in enabling us to navigate the sometimes tricky turns in the mangroves maze. Our tour guide, "Cheesy", was an incredible source of knowledge, culture, and humor. His "trick" of having a conch turn itself inside out was really an inroad to a larger discussion of the history of the importance of this sea creature in the culture and foundation of Turks and Caicos life. It was clear that he loves nature, his heritage, and learning. It was great spending two hours in the most incredible natural surroundings with my wife, our guide, and fellow enthusiasts. I highly recommend this tour.

      Scam
      Scam. Do not use this tour company. Did not take us to iguana island or the mangrove like they said they would and lied about it. We didn’t want to pay and they called the police who threatened to arrest us if we didn’t pay them extra in cash.

    We ended up doing the mangrove tour because it was too windy for the days we were there for the Chalk Sound Tour, but it was spectacular. Our guides were wonderful and very friendly and informative about the mangroves and it inhabitants. We saw baby sharks and plenty of turtles! It is absolutely beautiful out there.

    The original tour was cancelled the evening before via text. I asked to get a refund or to reschedule. The text suggested that we may reschedule for a different day. That was the last time I heard from the company. Multiple attempts to contact the company without response. The phone number provided on the website does not work. Avoid at any cost. So many other companies that are reliable and easy to work with.

    My husband and I did the Chalk Sound tour and had such a great time! Khadaffi called the day before to reschedule it for a better (less windy) day, and we're glad he did. Gorgeous day, absolutely beautiful water, fun conversation, lots of iguanas, an overall great experience. He also took many photos and videos and shared them with us after. Highly recommended!

    Incredible tour of Chalk Sound! It’s a quick taxi ride away from Grace Bay but absolutely worth it. The water is the clearest blue I’ve seen on the island, the kayaking is all in calm water for the most part and the scenery is truly breath taking. Not to mention a wonderful tour guide that really made this private tour exceptional. Highly recommend!!

    I booked through Chase Travel assuming this was a reputable tour, but was disappointed to read the reviews and find out on my own that this appears to be fraud or at the very least a very awful tour I do not recommend booking. I could not get ahold of anyone to confirm a drop off point. I entered the location given and we drove there and there was no sign, no building and no sign of kayaks. What a waste of an hour and we could have spent that time on a different tour. Chase is refunding this, but please listen to the reviews and don’t waste your time.
