Your safety is our number priority, made that much easier by working in small groups. Do we want to get you to the best places to experience the best these islands have to offer? Absolutely. However, safety must always be taken into consideration whether kiting, kayaking or diving. Our team meets regularly to discuss and assess weather, current, tide and sea conditions in order to make sure we maximize your experience while minimizing and reducing any and all potential risks.

We are in constant communication with each other on the water and relay live weather information to HQ.

That way we can take you to the right places at the right time, make accurate predications about the next day’s weather and more importantly find the animal life like whales and dolphins.

Experience & Training

We have a combined 12 certified Boat captains of all levels, 12 instructors and 20 guides on the team with well over 200 years combined experience navigating, guiding and teaching in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Our team is encouraged to and constantly works to improve their skill sets starting with our annual preseason in house training on safety.

Captains, Instructors & Guides

Our captains, instructors and guides are some of the most diverse and skilled professionals in the industry and certainly in the Turks and Caicos with a lifelong dedication, passion and commitment to their professions.

Decision Making

Our decision making process is largely determined by our experience and knowledge of the weather conditions, the trip type, our customer expectation and individual experience and comfort levels. We have years and years of local knowledge. Everyone and every day are different. Our reward is getting those decisions right by making the right call to go out or call in another day. Very often our decisions can only be made the morning of a trip, as our weather can be varied and is often extremely localized.

Standards & Procedures

We adhere to strict operating standards and procedures that we have refined over the last 20+ years and woven together with experience from our prior working backgrounds from around the world.

Briefings are the platform to all our trips, excursions and adventures, outlining to you, our guest, what the plan is, where the safety gear is and what emergency procedures are in place.

Our management of risk avoidance, regardless of the activity or terrain, comes down to proper planning and preparation. We have guided tens of thousands of happy guests in, on and over the water and no matter the activity we apply the same focus and attention in order to continue our exemplary and unrivalled safety record.

Protection

Protect yourself. The sand and the sea although beautiful should never be under estimated. The tropical sun in particular shows now mercy to dark or light skin tones. She will burn you! Protect yourself and your family by wearing hats, sun-shirts, neckies and biodegradable sunscreen! Don’t be fooled by our cooling trade winds or cloudy days. It is the UV rays that burn you. On the ocean, it is the reflection of those rays that amplifies and intensifies the exposure to sun burns. Hydrate – remember to drink lots and lots of water.

Protect our oceans. Do the right thing – look but don’t touch. Wear the right things (biodegradable sunscreen). Don’t litter. Support good practices. Be the difference.

Necky

Neckies protect your neck and face from the sun. We sell these products on site

snorkel-icon-3

Rashguards

Excellent sun protection, more reliable than sunscreen as you don’t have to reapply. We sell these

snorkel-icon-4

Sun screen

highly recommended but it must be 100% bio degradeable. We do sell an excellent variety

snorkel-icon-5

Hat

A hat is always a good idea when on the ocean

snorkel-icon-6

Sunglasses

sunglasses are also very useful in the tropical glare

snorkel-icon-7

Water

Drink lots and stay hydrated. We provide water

Min Ages & Why

Minimum ages are set for certain trips for either insurance purposes (kiteboarding and scuba 10 years old) or because the trip type and duration is simply too much for children or because other guests must be taken into consideration. The sun and the water take their toll on the youngsters with long exposure to both not something to be underestimated. We have many ideal 2 hour and 4 hour excursions available for children while private charters are perhaps the best family option with young children.
