Grand Turk Cruise Port

It looks and feels like the Caribbean, but Grand Turk is actually washed by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. You might be sailing here from the Bahamas, only 48km (30 miles) away, and will soon realize you’ve landed in one of the most tranquil, undiscovered locations on the planet. The shiny new cruise center facilities include restaurants and a shopping mall, and white-sand beaches are just a short walk away.

How to Get to Cockburn Town
The port is on Grand Turk’s southwestern tip, and you’ll find plenty of tour and island information in the sparkling modern cruise center. Taxis line up to take you to downtown Cockburn Town, in the center of the island. You could also hire a go-anywhere jeep for the day, rent a bicycle or join an organized shore excursion.

One Day on Grand Turk
The big buzz on Grand Turk is the wonderful diving, so make the most of your shore visit by joining a snorkeling adventure cruise or diving operator excursion. The best diving is off the island’s western coast, where coral walls and stunning tropical fish are protected by marine national parks. There’s also wreck diving, scuba courses, one of the Caribbean’s largest swimming pools, resort relaxation and beach horse-back riding.

If you’d rather stay dry, take a wander around colonial-era Cockburn Town, with some lovely old churches and buildings, the National Museum’s shipwreck displays, and craft shops selling locally made souvenirs. In whale-watching season, February/March, head out to the island’s historic lighthouse to glimpse humpbacks swimming past. And no further away than the cruise center, space-lovers can spend time examining the NASA exhibit detailing the 1962 John Glenn splashdown and Mercury space program.

Port Information
Cruise lines docking at the revamped and enlarged Grand Turk Cruise Port include Carnival, Holland America and Princess. The local currency is the US dollar, and you’ll find a couple of ATMs in downtown Cockburn Town. The language spoken on Grand Turk is English.
