Grand Turk Cruise Center
The Grand Turk Cruise Center is the jumping-off point for shore excursions, including snorkel and stingray meet-and-greet tours, sightseeing excursions, and beach and booze tours.

Enjoy landscaped grounds containing a beach, huge swimming pool, duty-free shops, good restaurants, beachside massages, and even an exhibit focused on the island’s involvement in NASA’s Mercury program.
