Located on the Southwestern region of Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands, Chalk Sound is a beautiful natural lagoon with some of the most beautiful turquoise water we have ever seen. The startlingly gorgeous hues of blue are given color by the shallow water and the powder white sandy bottom of the sound. This lagoon is peppered with hundreds of tiny rock islands adding another level of appeal to the seascape. Just over a skinny land strip, the open ocean of Taylor Bay and Sapodilla Bay add to the stunning views.
Chalk Sound is a wonderful morning or afternoon trip to take during your vacation to Turks and Caicos. Located on south of the airport, it is within a 15-20 minute drive from most areas of Provo.
Chalk Sound Pontoon Boat Tour Tour takes about 2.5 hours and we went with an outfitter located at Las Brisas in Neptune Villas. Our pontoon boat was partially shaded and comfortable. The crew was very informative about the lagoon and surrounding landmarks. They also knew quite a lot about local wild life and the fish and birds who call Chalk Sound their home.
We got light refreshments including beer for the grown ups and soft drinks for the kids. See the sound and a lot of the tiny islands within the Protected National Park.
One of our favorite parts of the tour was snorkeling over a plane wreck from the 1970s. Our tour guide explained that the wreck was a drug plane carrying marijuana and it crashed in the middle of the night. The next morning there were bales of marijuana floating in the sound!
Next we stopped over on a small island full of iguanas! This island has way more iguanas that the iguana island off the eastern tip of Providenciales. They come right up to you and hope to get fed. Just make sure you don’t have painted red toenails as they will mistake them for fruit and try to eat them!
