“Stroll up the beach from Seasongs and go for dinner at the Bohio Dive Resort. Check their website, call or stop by to see what's happening each night - Tuesday's movie night. ”

“EVERYBODY needs to go to the Sandbar - it's simply the best. Good food, great hang-out bar and so much love. Tania is truly the hostess with the mostess. One time, we were coming back from the morning dive, feeling like some lunch before going out again. Our then teenaged son dived off the boat, swam in, and ordered us lunch. By the time the boat was moored and we'd walked up Duke Street, our burgers were ready. Doesn't get any better than that!”

“Consider taking a day trip via air to the country's capital Grand Turk. About 25 minute flight. Old time caribbean island where wild donkeys and horses still roam the streets. Go January - April and enjoy a whale watching trip like no other! Perfect for snorkelling and diving. ”

“Smitty, Chris, Jason and the rest of the crew will take good care of you. Great for experienced or novice divers and snorkelers alike. Our younger son did his Open Water certification with Jason and loved it. Be careful, though - Chris does potcake puppy rescue and those little dogs are so sweet, you might just go home with one!”

Route
“Great route to ride - you can go all the way to the north of the island and see the lighthouse. Chukka Adventures runs a zipline facility there - super fun!”
