Has anyone ever done the Dune Buggy tour on Grand Turk? How was it, was it very rough?

Hi DEM, welcome to cruise-chat. We didn't do the dune buggy's, we did a great 2 stop snorkel. I can't imagine it would be very bumpy, the island is pretty flat. It is a very clean island and they've built a nice terminal area with shops and a beach. It sounds like the dune buggies would be a fun excursion. If you have time, try to go on a snorkel. The water is great. We did ours through Costa. The first stop was for beautiful coral and the second stop was for colorful tropical fish. Best wishes and have a wonderful cruise!

Penny, which snorkel outfit did you use and did you book through the cruise line?

We stopped at Grand Turk last fall. We booked our snorkling excursion through the ship, but I did look at what was available. Oasis Divers (http://www.oasisdivers.com/)does excursions - and they were who did the ship's excursion also. They were great.

Sorry, carlg, I didn't get back soon enough. We did book through Costa. I don't think it was Oasis, but could have been. Susanmaz, did they take you to the spot with the friendly barracuda? He was huge, but didn't bother a soul.

We went to Gibbs Key and fed and swam with the stingrays. We even got to try fresh conch from the bottom of the sea.... It was beautiful and way cool. I did have a problem with the feeding, though. There was a large fish who "crashed" the feeding frenzy and was pushing me to get at the conch I was trying to feed to the stingrays.... pushy little bugger...

I'll have to try that excursion the next time we visit Grand Turk, it sounds great. Fresh conch is amazing. I love conch fritters as well. Thanks for the info and website!
