Diving the Columbus Passage

May 26, 2011 |

Columbus Passage, Turks and CaicosWhen searching for Turks and Caicos things to do, diving is usually at the top of the list (preceded, of course, by lazing on the beach drinking Daiquiris made out of local rum!)

And what better place to dive than the Columbus Passage. The Columbus Passage, also known as the Turks Passage, is a deep, or abysmal channel that separates the Turks Islands and the Caicos Islands, and is located to the east of Grand Turk Island.

Between January and April more than 1500 Atlantic Humpback whales traverse the passage on their way to warmer waters to give birth. The Columbus Passage is also frequented by thousands of sea turtles and eagle rays. It’s a wonderful part of the planet, and is one of the last frontiers of diving in the Caribbean.
