In addition to our Turtle & Bird Safari, we also offer remote beach excursions where we’ll take you on an exploration of some of the most pristine and untouched beaches in the area. Our guides will help you spot local wildlife and take in the natural beauty that surrounds you, all while teaching you about our conservation and preservation efforts.
Turtle Safari Activities
Hop on our brand new “Chasing Tails” Panga boat, where you can choose between a half-day or full-day expedition to explore the coastal flats of North Caicos—the Caicos Cays. Experience the thrill of cruising with the only panga boat available for charter in the Turks & Caicos, known for its exceptional maneuverability and picturesque charm. Glide gracefully through lush mangrove systems, pristine waters, and tranquil channels, surrounded by turquoise flats adorned with grasslands and marshlands—a perfect playground for turtles.
In the full-day adventure, we venture further out into the heart of Middle and North Caicos, where the likelihood of spotting flamingos increases. These elegant birds are known to frequent these areas, adding an extra touch of magic to our journey.

At Talbot’s Adventures, we prioritize the safety and well-being of both our guests and wildlife. To ensure a respectful and enjoyable encounter for everyone involved, we strictly adhere to the following etiquette:
Just Float: When near marine animals, the best approach is to simply float. By respecting their space, they may come closer if they wish to interact.
Avoid Excessive Splashing: Refrain from splashing with your arms or legs excessively, as this could startle or disturb the marine creatures.
No Touching: Under no circumstances should you attempt to touch the marine animals. Respect their natural environment and maintain a hands-off approach.
Avoid Diving Towards Resting Animals: Be mindful of not diving down towards marine animals that are resting or seeking tranquility.
No Feeding: Feeding marine life is both dangerous and illegal (Fisheries Protection Ordinance Reg 9(1)(g)). Please refrain from this activity to protect their well-being.
No Interaction or Games: While it may be tempting to interact or play with marine animals, it’s crucial to let them behave naturally without any interference.
Respect Specific Situations: Steer clear of pregnant female marine mammals, animals engaged in courtship or territorial behavior, and those in predator/prey relationships.
Keep Our Oceans Clean: Littering is strictly prohibited. If you accidentally drop any personal items like hair ties, snorkels, or fins, retrieve them from the bottom of the ocean. Protecting their habitat is essential for safeguarding marine life.
Speak Up for the Sea: If you witness any behavior that could harm marine animals or goes against these guidelines, please step forward and educate the individuals involved. Kindly explain to them the importance of respecting marine life and encourage them to change their behavior.
By following these rules, we ensure that everyone enjoys a safe, responsible, and awe-inspiring Turtle & Birding safari adventure. At Talbot’s Adventures, we are committed to preserving the beauty of our oceans and fostering a deep appreciation for the incredible marine life that calls it home. Join us for an unforgettable experience that leaves a positive impact on our environment!
