What You Can Expect

Grand Turk Bird-Watching Tour by Tram

View birds native to Grand Turk!

Meet your naturalist guide at the tram station on the south side of Grand Turk. Climb on board this open-sided tram and head off for a 45-minute tour of the island with commentary from your  personal wildlife expert for the day.

Pass the salt ponds, or salinas, that provided many Grand Turk residents with their livelihoods during colonial times. These ponds are now home to indigenous birds such as the endangered pink flamingo, which aren't difficult to spot. The tram will continue on past marshes, lagoons and other hidden bird habitats that are part of your local guide's insider knowledge. Keep an eye out for pelicans, blue herons, hummingbirds and frigates and have your camera at the ready. Look through your provided full-color guidebook to help you identify the local species. After taking plenty of photos the island scenery and its wild inhabitants, return to the tram station with your souvenir bird watching guidebook to take home.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this May 2016

The tour was good, BUT it did not include any bird watching. It was grossly misrepresentation of what we got. We specifically asked if it was the bird tour and were told yes and given a bird guide folder. Then we did a town and country tour. The only birds we saw were a couple of flamingos at the salt ponds. No birds were pointed out and we made no stops to see any. I have already sent information on our experience to both the museum and your company. I museum replied you didn't. The museum said that our experience certainly did not align with what you had told them you would be doing. We were very disappointed.
