A History with the Sea
We at Talbot’s Adventures are passionate about educating both locals and tourists about the environment we call home. Here in the Turks & Caicos, our history with the sea runs deep. We are tied to the ocean in countless ways. For years, it has been central not only to our culture, but also to our economic growth.
In 1904, Capt. Levardo Talbot’s grandfather, Theophilus Talbot, arrived on Salt Cay — the smallest inhabited island in the Turks & Caicos — from Bermuda to work in the then-booming salt industry. A skilled shipwright and fisherman, Theophilus passed on all he knew to his children, including Oscar Talbot — Levardo’s father. Oscar, too, worked hard to ensure his children learned everything his father had taught him about the ocean and its relationship with people.
More than a century of life on the ocean has instilled in Levardo a commitment to preserving the history and culture of the TCI. It’s what led him to become a marine conservation officer with the Department of Environment and Coastal Resources for 10 years. It’s also why he became part of a research and expedition team in 2006 to uncover information about the Spanish slave ship Trouvadore that wrecked off East Caicos in 1841.
Through Talbot’s Adventures, he is carrying out his grandfather’s legacy with the sea as he educates visitors about the islands and our connection with the ocean.
At seventy-six years old, Oscar Talbot Sr. is a living legacy of his family’s long history of seafaring. This photo was taken at Salt Cay’s port of entry, Dean’s Dock, at the Salt Shed around 1963.
