Set Sail for Romance - Offering nightly Sunset Cruise excursions, couples can set sail aboard Lady Tamara to enjoy a scenic sailing trip as they watch the sun dip into the horizon along the waters of Grace Bay. The Turks and Caicos Islands are famous for their picturesque evening sunsets that fill the skies with vibrant reds, pinks and oranges.

Passengers are encouraged to keep their eyes peeled for the "Green Flash" that occurs the second the sun sets into the horizon.
An Adventure on the Seas - For those seeking a Caribbean adventure Seven Stars Resort is offering a Half-Day Adventure Cruise that sails east of Providenciales to Little Water Cay, Half Moon Bay and Leeward Island. The neighboring Cays feature such activities as iguana identification, sand dollar collecting, hidden treasure hunts at the sunken canyons, and snorkeling. Half-Day Adventure Cruises accommodate up to eight guests and include a refreshing Rum Punch, as well as a variety of beverages and gourmet snacks.
A Private Island Escape - Seven Stars' Beach Getaway Cruise gives guests the opportunity to enjoy an idyllic retreat on the private island of Half Moon Bay. The resort provides the beach chairs, umbrella, and food and beverages for half- or full-day excursions. Drop-off and pickup times vary depending on the guest preference for either the half or full-day outing.
A Pirate's Life - Lady Tamara will take up to eight passengers on a private excursion to experience the history and lore of 17th and 18th century Spanish pirates who once sailed their ships in search of treasure throughout the area. The full-day Mangrove and Pirate Adventure Cruise sails to the Southwest tip of Providenciales to Split Rock. Once docked, a breathtaking walk through the secluded mangroves takes guests back in time as they feast on a specially-prepared gourmet picnic. Private excursions are also available.
Full-Day Snorkel Safari - Seven Stars' Snorkel Safari takes the fun to the sea for a chance to explore the area's pristine waters.
