Tour begins with a scenic ferry ride from Providenciales to North Caicos. (photo above) Upon arrival in North, you will have time for a rest stop. Your adventure begins with a guided drive learning about the history of North Caicos before we make our first stop at Cottage Pond ( photo on right) The pond runs 260 feet deep, with the top 60 feet being fresh water, and the bottom sea salt water. It is also a Bird Sanctuary which is home to our National Bird the Old Grey Pelican.
Next we travel on through Kew Town. One of the oldest communities in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Originally founded by the slaves in 1826 who mostly up till then resided at Wades Plantation. After english law stated that slavery was illegal, they built a future here.
Wades Green Plantation is our next stop for a 45 min guided tour. Records were not always accurate, however it was estimated that 1500 slaves harvested more than 700 acres of Cotton and Sisal for 30 years. Artifacts and buildings over 200 years old, still stand in their original location. The two hundred year old slave paintings are still visible on the walls. This guided tour will give you a detailed history of the owner Wade Stubbs, and the daily workings of the plantation. As well as stories passed down from generations of ancestors who grew up here.
Next we are off to the community of Whitby with a population of approximately 150 persons. It is also home to “The Barracuda”, a local hangout spot. We will visit the Flamingo Pond where about 500 Flamingos make their home.

It is named after its shape resembling a bottle. North Caicos has a reputation for being lush and green. In this area it is prevalent with plenty of green grass and fruit trees surrounding its banks. Guava, sapodillas and sugar apples grow here. The largest Pine Forest in the Turks and Caicos is also found here.
Our next destination takes us across the Causeway. This scenic drive connects North and Middle Caicos. With ocean on both sides of the road, it offers stunning views. Here you will be able to see the Island of East Bay Cay.
Middle Caicos is the largest island in the T.C.I. chain. However only approximately 300 persons reside here. Bombarra is the oldest community settled in 1842 by slaves who arrived here on the shipwreck called the Trouvadore. (Bambarra Beach photo on the left )
As we drive towards Mudjin Harbour we stop for a guided tour of the Conch Bar Caves. There is over 1.5 miles of chambers in these Stalactite caves.
The first inhabitants of the caves was the extinct tribes of Lucayan Indians. They named the Caicos Islands in their native tongue Cayo, meaning “shallow water islands”. During your time in the chambers you may be fortunate to see one of the six species of bats who now reside here.
