Last snorkel trip before heading back. This is a cargo ship had sunk during one of the hurricanes a few years ago not far from Iguana island. The water was pretty shallow so we could up close to the debris field.Read more
The 1/2 day tour from the Caicos Dream tours included a stop at Iguana Island and lunch on the Stargazer. Iguana Island connects the Atlantic and Caribbean oceans. Everybody else saw lots of Iguanas except for me ☹️. The pool slide on the boat was very fun but I couldn’t get my GoPro angled right to get the full thrill 😁Read more
4 hour tour on a Caicos Dream Tours catamaran ☺️ to two snorkel sites (TCI barrier reef, and a shipwreck), visit to Iguana island, and all the rum punch you could drink 🤗
This was my first time "trying" to snorkel over coral. Coral is a lot sharper than I thought, that stuff hurts 😥😂
One of the top two places to get conch in the Turks. Conch is their most popular seafood. It’s basically a giant sea snail but it taste better than it sounds. This place is 90% awesome and 10% tourist trap 😆 But really it’s just fantastic. Great food, great drinks, with the best reggae beats. What’s even neater are all the cool conch shells piled up on the beach. Supposedly some are still alive.Read more
The Hole is literally a giant hole in the earth where the limestone caved in. It’s a local attraction that is a thing to do. I guess it was pretty neat but I’m not really a fan of standing over open pits with no bottom 😂 We stopped here first before doing a beer tasting at the only brewery in TCI. Great beer, nice bartender, their Irish stout and key lime Hefeweizen were 👌Read more
My first time off the resort was on a tour with SeaBreeze Island Tours. A lot of the island is still closed because of the virus but we still were able to visit the marina, the conch farm (damaged from the hurricane), “the hole”, Turks Head brewery, Long Bay Beach, Da Conch shack, and more snorkeling!Read more
There’s this drink on the menu called the drunken lobster that called to me. It was one of the expensive ones ($14 😖) and had a little happy chef symbol next to it. So I thought this drink must be the greatest thing ever.
It looked deadly upon arrival, dark red like a volcano, and had some of their best liquor. Got some mahi fish tacos to help counteract the alcohol and I was good to go 😁 Except I wasn’t. By the time I finished I couldn’t stand up and I couldn’t even ask for some water. That drink claimed my soul and kicked my ass 🤣. It took me forever to get back to my room. I was out for like the next 4 hours and missed my afternoon swim 🥴 If I ever go back, I’m getting it again 😆Read more
Everyday around 1 the clouds came in and we got some rain. Perfect time to head to the bar 😋 The drinks are potent 😳 but you can’t really tell until you’re almost done. Unfortunately they come with a potent price tag ($12 for the cheapest drink 😣) You can either drink or eat but you’re not doing both 😆 Luckily for me the money fairies gifted with 25% of my room cost back because of a special deal they had. Yay me 🤗 So I got to have a real nice time there for lunch and dinner.
Most of the bar and most of the hotel was empty, so not too concerned about the ‘Rona getting me. But some folks had zero fucks to give and just did there bar thing like normal 😆Read more
