Aqua Hands 10th anniversary Trip 2020:
Turks and Caicos Islands Liveaboard
July 18-25, 2020
Come and join Aqua Hands 10th Anniversary at Turks and Caicos Island Liveaboard for an amazing diving experience. The Turks and Caicos Islands are a British Overseas Territory only 37 miles long and all together consist of 40 islands and cays, of which only 12 are inhabited. There are two main islands, Grand Turk (Turks Islands) and Providenciales (Caicos Islands). These islands are 575 miles south-east from Florida and 90 miles north of the island of Hispaniola. Turks and Caicos are technically located in the Atlantic Ocean and not the Caribbean.
ARRIVAL (Saturday to Saturday on Standard Itinerary)
The Turks & Caicos Aggressor II operates out of Providenciales (Provo). Transfers are included as part of your package on the embark/disembark days of the charter from the Providenciales International Airport (PLS) to the yacht and at the end of the trip from the yacht back to the airport. Guests arriving Saturday on the day of your charter, are greeted at the Providenciales International Airport (PLS) by a crew member in uniform that will have a ‘Turks & Caicos Aggressor II’ sign. If you are already on the island, please make your own way to the Turks & Caicos Aggressor II, which docks at the Turtle Cove Marina, anytime after 3:00 p.m. Guests arriving early Saturday may store their luggage onboard; however, they cannot board the yacht until 3:00 p.m. The crew needs this time to prepare for the charter. In the unforeseen event, you arrive on Sunday, arrangements can be made to get you onboard. There may be a charge for this depending on the location of the yacht.
As you prepare for your diving adventure onboard the Turks & Caicos Aggressor II, we extend a most hearty welcome. It is
important to notify Aqua Hands of last minute changes concerning your airline arrival and departure times or any changes in your address and telephone numbers In the event of an emergency, family, and friends may contact you at the above numbers. Fill out the Aqua Hands: Turks & Caicos Form. We recommend you pack a regulator, mask, fins, and swimsuit, change of clothes, medication, and toiletries in your carry on bag. Having these few items with you can make an
unexpected luggage delay more bearable.
