Whale Watching

Every year between mid January through mid March, the annual humpback whale migration proceeds along the western shores of the island of Grand Turk.

It is a magical time here, when the awe and amazement of a whale sighting turns your day into an absolute dream, as you may caught sight of a humpback breaching in the water just off the Grand Turk Wall!

The humpback whale is one of the largest marine species, adults range in length from 12–16 metres (39–52 ft) and weigh approximately 36,000 kilograms (79,000 lb). The humpback whale has a distinctive body shape, with unusually long pectoral fins and a knobbly head. It is an acrobatic animal, often breaching and slapping the water. Humpback whales typically migrate up to 25,000 kilometres (16,000 mi) each year. Humpback's feed only in summer, and migrate to tropical or sub-tropical waters to breed and give birth in the winter. During the winter, humpbacks fast and live off their fat reserves. The species' diet consists mostly of krill and small fish. Humpbacks have a diverse repertoire of feeding methods, including the bubble net feeding technique. Let us take you on an unforgettable adventure!

The whale watching tour begins end of January until mid April, this will be an unforgettable adventure, as we spend time and search for these majestic gentle giants on their annual migration, as they breach and make melodies noises.
