Private Beach Tour And Snorkeling in the Turks and Caicos
On this private half-day cruise around Providenciales, your first stopover is at Little Water Cay. Also known as Iguana Island, it is the home for the native rock iguanas. These reptiles with their tall dorsal spikes stand still and bask under the sun all day long. Next, you will be ferried to the tiny scenic and uninhabited island called Fort George Cay. Enjoy the beautiful seclusion you are gifted with. Later you will head to the reef off Grace Bay Beach to snorkel in the pristine Caribbean Sea.
Private Sunset Cruise With Snorkeling in the Turks and Caicos
Cruise with the love of your life or family as you sail towards the gorgeous Grace Bay Beach. In the barrier reef found a mile away from the coastline, you can spot hundreds of colorful fish, barracudas, sea turtles as well as stingrays. There is the trumpetfish lurking between the reefs and if you are lucky, you will get to see nurse sharks. Head back to your catamaran and freshen up for a delightful evening. Feel one with the sea as you sit on the deck and watch the sun vanish into the horizon. Sip on a glass of wine or rum paired with cheese as the sea reflects the golden colors of the evening sky.
Sailing and Snorkeling Tour in the Bahamas
Escape the Bahamian island of Nassau for a few hours and sail in the sea on a luxurious catamaran. As the boat drifts towards Spruce Cay or Athol Island, there are many opportunities for photography. When the boat docks, put on your snorkeling gear and plunge into the sea. You will be mesmerized by the sight of beautiful anemone and gorgeous colorful corals that are scattered on the ocean floor. Once you are done snorkeling, relax on the deck of the boat and enjoy a drink of rum or a mocktail as you cruise back to Nassau.

Marvel at the beauty of Dunn’s River Falls and snorkel in the water in the sea in this full-day cruise. Start your journey from Montego Bay on a 65-foot catamaran. Befriend and converse with fellow travelers or sunbath as the boat slowly drifts in the calm sea towards Dunn’s River Falls. This multi-tiered cascade right on the beach is a rare waterfall in the world that empties directly into the sea. Out in the beach is an expanse of shallow water full of coral reefs teeming with colorful tropical fish. After your adventure, head back to Montego Bay while you sip on delicious rum punch and sway to the rhythms of Jamaican music.
Party Cruise With Snorkeling in Jamaica
Enjoy a short Caribbean cruise off the coast of Jamaica while you party onboard the catamaran. Snorkel at Ocho Rios where you can swim amongst the bright colorful corals and beautiful tropical fish. Later, head towards Dunn’s River Falls, a famous waterfall near Ocho Rios. Climb up the impressive cascading 600- foot waterfalls or swim at the base of the waterfall. Once you are done exploring the natural beauty of Ocho Rios, a party awaits you onboard. The open bar starts serving delicious cocktails and the DJ begins to mix great music so that everybody hits the dancefloor.
