The Humpbacks are Here
Beginning in January, hundreds of majestic Humpback whales begin their trek from the Stillwater Banks in Canada to the warm waters of the Mouchoir Banks, their breeding ground and winter vacation home. The best whale watching happens on tiny Salt Cay, though they have been spotted right here on Grace Bay. If you want to increase your odds of an encounter with these fascinating creatures, book an excursion with a local operator like Salt Cay Divers, which offers a "Day Trippin" package featuring round-trip air from Provo to Salt Cay on Caicos Express Airways, a three-hour whale watching excursion, lunch at a beachfront café, snorkeling along beautiful North Beach and an island tour. Afterwards, head back to your Providenciales resort to recount your adventure with fellow guests.
