The tropical islands and sandy beaches of Turks and Caicos are home to some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving sites in the Caribbean, but the top sighting is the majestic humpback whale. Here’s what you need to know about whale-watching tours in Turks and Caicos. 

When to Go
Each winter, thousands of whales migrate to the warm waters of the Caribbean, passing through the Turks and Caicos islands en route to their breeding grounds in the Dominican Republic. Most Turks and Caicos whale-watching tours run seasonally, from December to February.

What You’ll See
North Atlantic humpback whales and gray whales routinely migrate through this section of the Atlantic, and sightings are common during the whale-watching season. 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. 

How to Go
One of the best places to spot whales is the Columbus Passage between Grand Turk and Salt Cay, but whale-watching excursions also run from Providenciales, North Caicos, and West Caicos. To maximize your chances of spotting these gentle giants, set sail around the islands on a half-day or full-day catamaran cruise, perhaps stopping to swim, snorkel, or enjoy a beachside lunch along the way.
