Water Skis, Kayaks, Sailing, Sea Doo!
There are so many great things to do in, on, and above the waters of the Turks and Caicos Islands. Thrill seekers will find plenty of wet and wild adventures to get the adrenaline pumping with parasailing, jet skis, and windsurfing. Sailing and fishing fanatics will find that renting a boat in Turks and Caicos is easy and that most captains are willing to barter for their services. Enjoy a Turks and Caicos sailing or kayak lesson before taking the vessel out on your own. The Islands are loaded with experienced water sports providers, instructors, and plenty of boats and equipment for rent.
Wakeboard, Water Skis, and Tubing!
Walk out the door of your Turks and Caicos villa, go down to the shore, and sign up for the ride of your life. There’s nothing like being towed along by a powerful motorboat on water skis, a wakeboard, or an inner tube!
Local Turks and Caicos water sports companies offer one, two, or three person tubes, specially designed for boat towing. Cruise along bouncing a foot above the surface at 18 mph, or slower for little ones. If you want an extreme ride, get the OK from Mom and Dad, sign on the dotted line, and you’re in for the ride of your life!
The water skiing in the Turks and Caicos Island is amazing and some of the locals specialize in the extremely challenging “barefooting” version. Professional certified instructors teach this art on glassy smooth private waterways and barefooters skim along at speeds of 40 mph. Turks and Caicos is protected by a vast coral reef that spans the whole length of the north coast, giving rise to perfectly smooth barefoot conditions along the beach. Get the foot massage of a lifetime while skiing the Caribbean waters with nothing but your own two feet!
Wake surfing and wake skating are the two sports that happen with a wakeboard. It’s not time to go home to your relaxing Turks and Caicos villa yet. First try your hand at one of these island favorites. Wake surfing starts with the rider holding the line behind the boat. Once in position in the curl of the wave, the line gets thrown back into the boat and you ride the Wave all the way home! Wake skating is like skateboarding on the water and the experts do all kinds of flips and tricks on the board.
Nautique Sports is the premiere watersports company in Turks and Caicos. With a fleet of top-of-the-line Mastercraft luxury powerboats, you can waterski wakeboard, wakesurf, wakekite, kitesurf, kneeboard, barefoot waterski, snorkel, or have fun getting towed on inflatable rafts and towable tubes. Located on the island of Providenciales, Turks and Caicos, Nautique Sports rents waterspouts boats with or without captains, certified watersport instructors, and friendly, trained guides who know the best locations to enjoy watersports, snorkeling, or take you to a secluded beach on a remote Turks and Caicos island where you can enjoy a private, catered lunch and beverages. Nautique Sports also has a surf shop full of watersports equipment for sale and rent.
If you are looking for a true “butterflies in the stomach” experience, check out the Turks and Caicos parasailing opportunities all over the island. The beaches of Providenciales are havens for every kind of Caribbean water sport the islands have to offer. Parasailing lets you experience the glory of hang gliding with the security of a tow rope connected to the boat. This is a great Turks and Caicos vacation photo-op with you and a friend soaring 300 to 900 feet above the sparkling Caribbean Ocean. Enjoy vast panoramic views of this tropical paradise and if you are up for adventure, the captain will add in some water dunks and free falls. The flyer remains clean and dry and the sailing requires no effort from the rider so people of all ages and physical conditions can enjoy a parasailing experience.
Kayak Rentals in Turks and Caicos
Kayak tours are offered by many experienced guides throughout the Turks and Caicos Islands. Intrepid travelers can also rent a kayak and explore the inlets and byways of the islands on their own. Many local providers offer Kayak Eco-Tours of the Turks and Caicos flora and fauna. Paddle through the Princess Alexandra Nature Reserve, weaving through the mangroves and arriving at the Rock Iguana sanctuary. Some kayak tours add world-class Turks and Caicos snorkeling or scuba diving into the mix with visits to some of the most pristine coral reefs in the world.
Sailing and Boat Charters
Lots of places in the Turks and Caicos offer small sailboats for rent. Rent a 13 or 17 foot Hobie Cat by the hour or for the whole day. Most rental providers also have experienced instructors on staff and lessons are available for surprisingly affordable rates. Power boats for rent of many shapes and sizes are available within walking distance of all our Turks and Caicos vacation homes. Be your own Captain and explore the Cays and little lagoons of this Caribbean Island group.
For Catamarans and larger sail or power yachts, the ship’s captain acts as your island guide for a half day or full day adventure on the brilliant turquoise Caribbean Sea. Combine big game fishing for Marlin and Sailfish or a tour of the best Turks and Caicos scuba diving sites with your boat charter.
