Interior of the abandoned United States Coastguard LORAN station, South Caicos.
interCaribbean is the primary provider of flights to South Caicos, with several flights per day. Rates are about $150 per person roundtrip (2018). Flight time is about 20 minutes from Providenciales.
For domestic flights, we advise arriving at the airport at least 45 minutes prior to flight departure.
A roundtrip passenger ferry service is offered twice per week between Providenciales and South Caicos. However, this service may not be viable for day trips due to the schedule, as the layover in South Caicos is often less than an hour.
Travel time is about 75 minutes ($100 roundtrip, 2018) and the route is offered on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
Caribbean Cruisin' is the primary ferry operator.
We highly recommend renting a vehicle during your stay on South Caicos. The main settlement of
Cockburn Harbour isn’t large, however, many of the spectacular coastlines and beaches can be quite a distance off.
Unfortunately, rentals are both more expensive and limited, and moreso than on ourother islands. Rates are about $150 a day including tax and fuel for a minivan or SUV (typically not the best condition vehicles).
