Turks and Caicos Yacht Charters
About 550 miles southeast of Miami lies the Turks and Caicos, atop the world’s third-largest coral reef. The 6,000-mile Turks and Caicos offer excellent fishing, diving, and unpopulated beaches near the United States. Since the Turks and Caicos are far south, the climate is less affected by fronts rolling off the U.S. mainland. The average low temperature in January is 73 degrees, and the average is 81 degrees. Consequently, the refreshing trade winds blowing from the east/northeast make for excellent Turks and Caicos yacht charters.
Before Christopher Columbus set foot on Grand Turk, the Turks and Caicos were inhabited by Taino and Lucayan Indians. These original settlers left a rich heritage of seafaring, salt raking, and farming, which still lingers today. Words such as “canoe,” “Caribbean,” and “Caicos” are derived from the Arawak language. Similarly, even the name of the country comes from these earliest inhabitants. Turks is a reference to the indigenous Turk’s head cactus. Caicos is from the Lucayan term “caya hico,” meaning “string of islands.”
Another peculiarity passed down through the generations is a love of shellfish. This mainly includes conch, thanks to the Caicos Conch Farm, the only commercial conch farm in the world.
Wildlife | Turks and Caicos Yacht Charters
There is no shortage of wildlife on the Turks and Caicos Islands because they are sparsely populated and unspoiled. The area is home to various sea turtles, migrating whales, schools of wild dolphins, and rare birds. Seeing so many tropical islands ruined by careless development, the government has recently committed itself to ecotourism to protect the country’s fragile natural heritage. From whale watching, snorkeling with sting rays, Jo Jo the dolphin, and touring old lighthouses – there are many things to do in Turks and Caicos.
