The Turks & Caicos Explorer used to be the old
Caribbean Explorer based in Saba & St Kitts. Since the purchase
of the Peter Hughes vessel Sea Dancer and her renaming
and subsequent relocation to Saba, the Turks & Caicos Explorer
is now based in Providenciales (or Provo for short) all year;
she cruises to the western reefs of Provo, West Caicos, French Cay
& West Sandspit.
Turks & Caicos Explorer is a 106ft boat which sleeps
16 in 8 twin cabins, each with washbasin; there are 3 cabins on
the uppper deck with en suite bahtrooms and 5 below decks which
share 3 bathrooms. She has a dining area and saloon on the main
deck, a covered bar and eating area on the upper deck from where
to admire the sunset, plus a large open sundeck with lounges. All
her enclosed areas are fully air-conditioned. She also has a full
range of camera and video equipment for hire, and her enthusiastic
crew are keen to assist novices in learning the skills of underwater
photography. For those people wishing to advance their diving qualifications,
a variety of PADI and NAUI courses are available. Non-divers are
equally catered for, with resort courses for absolute beginners
being available at a nominal charge.
Turks & Caicos Explorer's schedule is a standard 7-night
departure every Saturday of the year.
