The Turks and Caicos island archipelago is renowned for its excellent diving and sea life. Visitors from the world over arrive here with one singular thought in mind – that sparkling Caribbean water. Yes, everyone comes here to play in the sand and water and, fingers crossed, see some gentle giants called whales.

Humpback and Grey whales routinely migrate through this section of the Atlantic, and so tour operators take willing participants out to try to catch a glimpse of these amazing sea mammals. The humpback whales found here are part of annual herds that migrate south from Cape Cod and spend their winters in the warm tropical waters of the Caribbean islands – who can blame them?

While you might here their signature “song” while splashing in the warm waters of the beach, the best way to see these amazing creatures is by boat. The female humpback whale, the largest of the species, ranges in length from 40-45 feet (12-14 meters) long, while the male grows between 36-41 feet (11-12.5 meters) long. To see them in real life is a special experience indeed.

Whale watching on a catamaran is a great  way to see the island’s treasures while enjoying lunch and the unique experience of sailing in open water on a luxury catamaran. Seize this opportunity to see the North Atlantic Humpback whales breach the ocean surface, call to others with their signature “song”, or maybe even spot a mother and her calf.
