So, when you arrive at the beach, don't expect a giant booth with their name on it. Just go where they said, and if you don't see their boat ask anyone; they all know each other and look out for each.... more

THE BEST THERE IS ON GRAND TURK! I can't say enough about how incredible my Humpback Dive Shack experience was. The owners are the kindest, most genuine people I've ever met and are the reason I believe Humpback Dive Shack is the best on the island! They go out of their way to ensure a memorable experience for everyone and made us all feel like we were out in the oceans with a group of friends. We booked snorkelling with sting ray at Gibbs Kay one day, and Scuba diving the next. Humpback Dive Shack surprised us on our way to snorkel, with a chance to hear the whales underwater!! They also packed a surprise picnic when we got there with food, beverage and great music. On our way back they took us via "The Library" which is a place the ocean goes from 30 ft to 7000ft!!! It was soo surreal! They are very knowledgable and answer any of our ocean questions we had and made sure we were safe. I HIGHLY recommend Humpback Dive Shack to anyone looking for an experience that you'll remember for the rest of your life!!!
As we would be cruising the Caribbean, with a stop at Grand Turk, we were searching for a stingray snorkeling tour. We didn't want to book the tour via the cruise line, or any 'normal' tour, as we don't like the big boats/crowds nor we like the stingrays to be fed and lifted on your bag. Let nature be as it is. We found very good reviews of The Humpback Dive Shack and via the information on their website we concluded this would be our trip to book. (Unfortunately no humpbacks for us to spot as the season was over.) Via email we had contact and we were booked for our trip during our visit. We've received clear instructions on were to meet once we would arrive at Grand Turk. From the dock it's a short walk to the pick-up location and there we met Sabine and Brain, the owners of The Humpback Dive Shack. And as it turned out, we were the only ones that day for the trip to Stingray Island (Gibbs Cay). We could leave ahead of all the other tours and we had a lot of time for ourselves to explore the waters at Gibbs Cay, while Sabine and Brain gave us instructions from the boat about where to look for the stingrays. Extra treat, we also spotted a turtle! While we were doing some more snorkeling, Brain set up the picnic area on the beach, including shade! This is rather important, as the sun is really burning. While we were talking about our snorkeling experience we were offered some nice fresh fruit, cheese and crackers and drinks. We also had time to make a walk around the small island which is interesting as the other side is rough compared to the beach side. After Gibbs Cay we went to the other side of Grand Turk were there was a nice riff were we had a second snorkeling stop. Here we spotted a lot of colorful fish. It was breathtaking. Both Brain and Sabine know so much about the flora and fauna and are willing to share all their knowledge with you. They don't only bring you to the spots, but also show you where to look, inform you about names and history. We had the best of times, made so many pictures and had great conversations with our guides. When you visit Grand Turk, please consider The Humpback Dive Shack. You will not get any better service and you can enjoy a small and personal tour.
