Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

For the adventurous at heart, get behind the wheel of a Polaris dune buggy and explore the island. You'll head off caravan style, following your guide's buggy down the narrow marl tracks that skirt the beach around the island. Take a trek to the bluff, where you can capture the beautiful view of Gibbs Cay and the other Turks Islands that are visible in the Atlantic Ocean. You'll drive by a replica of the space capsule in which John Glenn splashed down in the Atlantic Ocean. You'll continue to the capital of Cockburn Town and travel off the beaten path to North Wells. Here, you might catch a glimpse of pink flamingos foraging in the salina ponds. Departing North Wells, you'll pass North Creek before driving to the northern tip of the island, where you'll stop to capture stunning views from the cliffs high above the Atlantic Ocean before returning back to port.
