Re: Grand Turk - Anyone know if Marina and fuel Dock?

I've never been to Grand Turk by boat or otherwise. I have been to Providenciales (Provo) by boat and plane. Provo is where Sapodilla Bay is and there is a full service marina accessed from the north side of Provo. You will need to have them guide you through the cut in the reef and around the coral heads though.

The Caicos Bank is fairly shallow. When I arrived at Provo from Tortola we sailed all the way around the Bank to avoid the shallow water and coral heads. Keep your eyes open for commercial traffic around Mona Passage, south of the T&C. Also watch for evidence of Gulf Stream eddies. You will find some current out there.

Grand Turk was very built up. I could see it as we sailed by, high rises sticking up over the ocean. I'm not sure who goes there. Probably the rich and famous.
