Snorkeling Charters

South Caicos is exceptional for diving, and it’s no surprise that it’s likewise a great place for snorkeling. More so than the other Caicos Islands, the waters around South Caicos, East Caicos, Long Cay, and Ambergris Cay are excellent for spotting the larger sea creatures, such as eagle rays, stingrays, manta rays, reef sharks, hammerhead sharks, and lemon sharks. Coral and reef structure is also vibrant and varied.

Snorkeling charters can be tailored to guest wishes, as there’s a wealth of interesting snorkeling sites. The water off of cays including Long Cay, Six Hills Cay, and Fish Cay typically offer excellent visibility and calm conditions, and the bay and barrier reef locations have bright sea fans, hard corals, and numbers of colorful reef fish. The wide array of sites provides endless opportunities for underwater exploring.
