Why Whale Watching in Salt Cay is a Must-do When in Turks and Caicos

It’s an incredible experience to watch the annual migration of humpback whales in the coast of the Turks and Caicos Islands! When you visit Turks and Caicos between the months of December to April, whale watching is a must-add to your itinerary as it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

You can hear the whales sing

Whales emit a melodious sound as their way to communicate and socialize with the rest of the pod. To humans, it’s a hauntingly beautiful tune that is said to be mesmerizing when heard in person. It would be a one-of-a-kind experience to hear the humpback whales in Salt Cay sing to you.

  1. Get the chance to observe whale behavior

Whales will sometimes launch themselves in the air, flip, and fall back down. A behavior amongst whales is known as breaching. When you book with accredited tour operators for your whale-watching activities, tour guides should be equipped to educate guests about whale behavior.
