We’ve designed and built Tip of the Tail to be the ultimate sanctuary of relaxation, adventure, and indulgence. There’s always something to do, even if that means doing nothing at all.
That being said, we’re so fortunate to be located in the beautiful Turks and Caicos islands, and as much as Tip of the Tail Villa is the ultimate luxury villa rental in Providenciales, there is so much more to do and see beyond our gates!
In this article, we’ll be outlining some of the most exciting excursions and adventures available exclusively through our on-island partners.
OUT-ISLAND ECO TOURS
Tip of the Tail Villa is located on Providenciales, which is in the Northwest island chain of the country. It’s absolutely beautiful here, but a visit to Turks & Caicos would not be complete without exploring the out islands, like South Caicos. Steeped in a rich history and placed in the backdrop of one of the most idyllic settings in the world, this area of Turks & Caicos is truly special, and is much more remote and “off the beaten path”. For those who wish to fully immerse themselves in the TCI history and landscape, this tour is highly recommended.
WHALE & DOLPHIN SPOTTING
One of the most epic adventure tours here in the Turks & Caicos Islands is whale and dolphin spotting. Beginning in November and December, our corner of the Caribbean becomes one of the most active regions in the world for the humpback whale’s migration patterns. Our guests who have participated in these excursions often return feeling awe-inspired from these absolutely breathtaking experiences. Dolphin spotting is available all year round in the Turks & Caicos Islands, and Big Blue Collective is the absolute best tour operator for these kinds of experiences!
Our adventure partners have some of the most experienced dive staff in all of the Caribbean. With so much to do and sea just below the waterline of Tip of the Tail, this tour is highly recommended for those with PADI certification. Big Blue Collective offers small, fast and private boats to help facilitate these intimate tours that are designed to immerse you in the undersea world of the Turks & Caicos islands. Guests can expect to interact with whales, whale sharks, dolphins, and fish of all kinds as well as to explore beautiful coral reefs in the most picturesque underwater setting.
One of the biggest guest favorites here at Tip of the Tail are the boat and yacht charter excursions our partners offer. Whether you’re looking for a luxurious, private half or full day charter on a beautiful yacht, sailboat or catamaran, or for a more adventurous and fast-paced shared experience, there’s something for everyone when it comes to boat charters in Turks & Caicos. Looking for the ultimate fishing experience? Our providers also offer options for that, too!
One of our preferred watersports providers here on-island is Wake to Wake. They offer a wide range of experiences including snorkelling, subwing rentals, wakeboarding, wakesurfing, waterskiing, tubing, and private beach escapes. Their captains are also certified PADI divers and can provide your guests with the best recommendations for the best snorkelling in the Caribbean.
FISH FRY THURSDAYS
One of the biggest cultural events on Providenciales is Fish Fry Thursdays – an unforgettable community event open to both locals and tourists alike that celebrates the Turks Islanders’ culture, food, and Caribbean traditions in an epic parade through a market-like culinary experience. With fun for the whole family, this event happens every Thursday night in the city center and is one of the Caribbean’s best-known cultural events.
VENTURE ON YOUR OWN
Providenciales is a safe, easy-to-navigate island with many sights to see, restaurants to experience, and beaches to lounge among. Our guests often find renting a car and exploring the island on their own to be one of the most rewarding experiences for groups, families and couples. Don’t forget though, in Turks & Caicos we drive on the left side of the road!
