Dive in to observe the underwater world, safe in the knowledge that your guide is on hand to assist with any questions about technique or local wildlife. Find yourself surrounded by tropical fish, coral reefs and relaxing aqua water.
Choose to continue snorkeling or head over to a spotless white beach to wade in the shallow water amongst curious, gentle stingrays. Your captain has final say on the day's activities based on available time and weather patterns. After about an hour of enjoying everything Grand Turk's surrounding Caribbean Sea has to offer, your snorkel boat will deliver you back to White Sands Beach.

Since we wanted to snorkel and learn about the history of the island, we booked the Land and Sea Tour prior to arriving in Grand Turk on a cruise stop. Papa J Tours was excellent. The first half of our tour was snorkeling at two absolutely beautiful locations. With only 8 of us on the boat, we got a very personalized experience. The guides were always in the water with us and keeping an eye out to make sure everyone was safe. The crystal clear water was amazing. The snorkeling was incredible but the highlight was petting a nurse shark.
The second half of our experience was an island tour. Our tour guide was very informative in providing history of the island stopping along the way to see beautiful views of the water and island a short stop in Cockburn town and another stop at the Lighthouse. We even saw a 4-day old donkey on the grounds at the lighthouse.
The tour was exactly what we wanted. The guides went above and beyond to give us a great experience.

My husband and I booked the land and sea tour ..on trip advisor we paid and booked the land and snorkel combo..when we arrived we had a rush land tour and no snorkeling ...they gave us the swim with stingray instead...my husband was very disappointed ..he was looking field to snorkeling...I just felt papa j tours was a lil unorganized ...if you decide to book tour..make sure you get what you are paying for and note the tour time and cruise ship time are a hour different ..
