through the 22-mile wide Turks Island Passage separating the Turks Islands from the Caicos Islands, sightings are most often off Grand Turk and Salt Cay, but have been seen off Providenciales. Whale watching tours allow you to watch the whales up close, and if circumstances permit (but not guaranteed), the rare chance to snorkel with them. (See page 62) Mermaid Encounters Turtle Cove Marina is Lynsea’s home, and she spends a lot of time entertaining friends aboard the Undersea Explorer Semi-Submersible. Enjoy her company by your pool or on the beach. Guided eco-snorkels for the entire family are offered. Call Caicos Tours to arrange at 432.0006 (SUP) Stand Up Paddleboarding Who knew paddling a board could pro-vide such access (and exercise) to some less accessible areas of the coastline. Paddling standing up means you don’t only get a core workout, but a stellar van-tage point from which to observe marine life. Quiet and discrete, marine life is left undisturbed. Rentals, instruction and guided tours are on offer. IMAGINE YOURSELF KITEBOARDING HERE... WWW.TCKITEBOARDING.COM Kids Club For the little ones, programs range from teaching about the island environment, including marine life, plants and animals, to teaching children how to be safe in and around the water. There are special cours-es available to keep your teens challenged and entertained, while eco-adventures offer fun for the entire family. Swim Training What better place than our warm, clear, turquoise waters to give your children the gift of confidence in the water? Several watersports operators teach swimming, and offer classes for three year olds and up, in a pool or the ocean. The exquisite waters of Grace Bay also make it one of the best places in the world for open water swim-ming. Try a unique open water Swim Safari and Shore Swim to take full advantage of this spectacular aquatic environment. Programmes are specifically designed for triathletes, swimmers preparing for an open water event, for those who wish to stay in shape, or want to have a fun work-out while on vacation. 649.442.2423 RideTCI: V-Twin Motorcycle Tour If there’s ever a place to ride a vehicle designed specifically for cruising, it’s here. That’s why RideTCI, in acquiring V-Twin motorcycles, has launched brand new day tours.
