DO YOU HAVE JUST A BIT O’ THAT PIO-NEERIN’ BLOOD IN YOU? HOW ABOUT THE LUST FOR A PIRATE’S LIFE -AT LEAST FOR JUST THE DAY? Well, Ocean Outback has the answer. Unlike many jaunts leaving tourism central (Grace Bay) Ocean Outback’s “Adventure Tour” boat leaves from Sapodilla Bay to cruise the calm and pro-tected Caicos Banks. You leave civiliza-tion behind with the first stop being some spectacular snorkelling in four to six feet of water. From there you head into shore past Osprey Rock. Perched out on this isolat-ed point is a family of Ospreys keeping a watchful eye on all that passes by. You might also be lucky enough to spot migrating Flamingos or the Long-Tailed Birds of Paradise, a gull type bird with foot long tail feathers. Horseback Riding Your island pony or horse will carry you along quiet country roads, back bush trails, down our fantastic beaches and into the sea. And what do you need? Absolutely nothing, including riding experience. You can join in if you’re six and up, accompanied by a parent. All the saddling is done for you and helmets and instruction are provided. Group and private rides offered. Call early during your vacation to arrange your ride. TCI Safari Tours Take a land tour around Providenciales with TCI Safari Tours. Day tours 9am to 2pm include Pelican Beach, Long Bay, The Hole, Blue Mountain, Da Conch Shack with seafood platter and Sapodilla Bay. The Sunset Tour six days a week, runs for about four hours ending with sunset over Sapodilla Bay. On Thursdays, join our Fish Fry Tour; explore the island ending up at the Fish Fry, seafood platter included. Private tours available for up to eight persons. All tours will pick up and drop off at your resort. Call 649-343-8688 to book your safari. The Captain takes you ashore just past this point to explore a local pirate’s lair. In a nearby cave, you’ll see 300-year old stone carvings linked to the island’s past. Pirates sailed these waters until the late 1700s, leaving their actual treasure maps etched into cave walls. Try your hand at deciphering the code. You’ll also see etchings left behind by shipwrecked sailors. The Captain will fill you in on all the details! Then some time to crash on Bonefish Point Beach, search for sea shells and enjoy the seclusion of miles of beach per person. No cell phones, no watches please! Enjoy BBQ lunch and snacks with plenty of sodas and water for all, unlimit-ed beers and (original recipe) rum punch for any sea dog that’s so inclined! Added creature comforts? Two decks, one for shade; a bow ramp for easy beach access; restrooms on board; and it’s a catamaran at that, so it’s more stable than any single-hulled vessel. The glass bottom boat is also available for private charters to the island of your choice. “It’s truly good value because it’s just a blast and everyone had so much fun!” We recommend this one. Why not? Go for it. Call 231-0824 or 941-5810. Vespa Scooter Tour Hop on one of these sporty little scooters and take off for sights unseen. Join an informative guided tour to see most of our island in a few hours and have lunch. To head out on your own, pick one up at Grace Bay Plaza. Free lessons are available.
