Another great way to experience Turks and Caicos marine life if to SNUBA. What is it? It's a combo of snorkeling and scuba of course. You can go deeper than snorkeling but you don't need to know how to scuba. Kids over 8 can dive to 20 feet and their breathing device is floating on the water. Get down there and see awesome tropical fish and SEA TURTLES! It's awesome. Plus you get the awesome Jodi Taylor taking you out, she's amazing!

Try a ride with Provo Ponies or Caicos Corral. Ride a rescue pony right into the water. It's magical!
Little Water Cay is a small island off the tip of Provo and is referred to as Iguana Island. The animals aren’t scared of visitors, so children can see these iguanas up close and personal. We've been there, it's pretty cool.
Outback Adventures offers a pirate adventure boat ride every Wednesday for those who want to explore pirate caves. A BBQ lunch, unlimited drinks, great views in a glass bottom boat, and pirate lore are all included.

Scuba diving isn’t for everyone, especially if you have young children. Thanks to a glass bottom submarine you can take an hour-long underwater ride and explore the waters of the Turks and Caicos. Caicos Tours offers this experience daily. They actually have a mermaid adventure and a turtle reed adventure.

We have not been, but we have heard that the The National Environment Centre is a fun and educational way to spend a couple of hours out of the sun. There are exhibits on the coral reefs and ecosystems of the islands, as well as information about the research projects being done around TCI. Located in Provo, the environmental center is an attraction for any kids who love science and nature.
