Little Water Cay Snorkeling

The 31st most popular snorkel dive spot in Turks And Caicos.

Northeast of Providenciales, the snorkeling off the northcoast of Little Water Cay offers a variety of opportunties. From the north shore of Little Water Cay, there is snorkeling around the ironshore in shallow waters. There are some old rock formations, sea grass and sand beds to explore. As part of snorkel tours, there are excellent spur and groove coral formations far offshore at the barrier reef. Keep an eye out for the resident dolphin family Mojo, Flojo and Jojo.

Also known as Iguana Island, there is one additional feature of Little Water Cay that is not to be missed. Start from the first cove just west of Halfmoon Bay. About 100 feet inland is a small lake. In the lake, you will find upside-down jellyfish living on top of the sand. These are delicate and beautiful creatures that are not to be missed!

To reach the snorkeling on Turks and Caicos by air, fly into Providenciales International Airport (PLS) located in the middle of the island. There are charter snorkeling boats to the snorkel spots northeast of Provo out of Blue Haven Marina on the east coast. Sadly, the snorkel boat tours tend to be a little unreliable since they may cancel for a variety of reasons including a reservation count below their minimums, boat issues, weather and other reasons. Book early in your trip and often!

Overall, Little Water Cay is the 31st most popular snorkel dive spot of all 32 snorkeling dives in Turks And Caicos.
