Excursion 'EXPLORING THE WONDERS OF THE SEA AROUND GRAND TURK IN A SEMI-SUBMARINE'

Description

Divers from around the world come to Grand Turk to explore the seabed around the island and marvellous marine life. With this excursion we have the unique opportunity to experience such exploration, only with a difference. The difference is that and we can do it seated comfortably aboard the Oasis Yellow Semi-Submarine.



What we will see
  • Oasis Yellow Semi-Submarine
  • Coral Reef
  • Grand Turk underwater life
  • The Wall


What we will do
  • After a short explanation of the submarine's features we go below deck to observe Grand Turk's marine life through the panoramic viewing windows
  • We sail along the west coast of the island where the rich coral reef drops off 2300 metres into the blue abyss forming what has come to be known as The Wall.
  • Our local guide points out the various species of fish that live in the waters of Grand Turk and, with a bit of luck, we might even see tortoises, rays, groupers and notorious sharks.
  • After about 45 minutes, our excursion is over and we board another boat that will take us back to the Grand Turk Cruise Centre pier.
