Overview
More
Talbot’s Adventures was created by the inspiration of the Talbot Family. Our families’ core values are centered on a life spent on and in the ocean. From generations born in Salt Cay, we have taken on the slogan of "professional natives." The tradition of exploring backwaters and fishing for conch, lobster and snapper is a lifestyle for us. We are now glad to have the opportunity to share this lifestyle with you! Alexander Norman Talbot, a Bermudan descendent, was a great fisherman, free diver, sail boat captain and boat builder. As a highly respected man of the sea, he contributed his service to TCI during the salt trade industry days in Salt Cay. Norman started the Talbot lineage here, and with nothing but his inherited legacy, the younger generation tailored and introduced the trade to the tourist industry through out the Turks and Caicos Islands. As Norman’s grandchild, I (Capt. Levardo) was also born and raised in the little island of Salt Cay. I took to the sea from the age of 5 with my father Oscar Talbot Senior. Oscar is one of the best divers and fishermen in TCI and still free dives for conch and lobster well into his 70s. My passion for marine life, conservation of the environment, and sustaining culture and heritage in the Turks and Caicos Islands were the building blocks for Talbots Adventures. My motto is "catch some and save for future generations." My experiences includes 10 years as a Fish and Parks Marine Conservation Officer for the Department of Environment and Coastal Resources as well as working for various boat charter companies (including Sail Provo, Silver Deep and a few other smaller companies). The dream of owning my own boat charter company came true in the summer of 2009. Talbot’s Adventures has since turned into one of Provo’s premier private boat charter/ fishing companies. Let us show you around the waters of the Turks and Caicos!
