Start your 8-hour island adventure with convenient pickup at your Providenciales lodging. Transfer by comfortable tour vehicle to the tour office at Alexandra Resort, where you'll get fitted for snorkel gear.
Board the boat and cruise along the long, sandy stretch of Grace Bay toward your first snorkeling stop at Leeward Reef. Spend about 45 to 60 minutes exploring the underwater world, populated by colorful tropical fish and impressive coral formations. If you're not into snorkeling, make use of the time to lounge in the sun on board the boat or try out the boat's slides and diving boards.
Climb back on the boat and head for Iguana Island, the home of the native Rock Iguana, then depart for the Caicos Banks to dive for conch. Learn about the anatomy, history and significance of the conch, the 'mascot' of the Turks and Caicos. Your expert crew will catch some and you can give it a shot yourself; it's harder than you think.
On Ft George Cay, explore the uninhabited shores while the crew prepare an island-style barbecue lunch, including conch salad, grilled fish, lobster, chicken, garlic bread, corn and peas n' rice. Sip drinks from the open bar as you chow down.
After lunch, head for Shell Island, where you can beach comb for unusual shells or go snorkeling in search of sand dollars. Your last snorkeling stop is at Pine Cay reef; keep an eye out for giant brain coral, elk head coral and the endangered Hawksbill Sea Turtle.
Return to Providenciales for drop-off back at your hotel.
