Conch--pronounced "konk"--is a staple in Turks and Caicos cuisine, which has a defined texture and a clam-like taste. The Turks and Caicos are one of the only three Caribbean countries that can export this edible aquatic snail and also possess the only conch farm in the world.

As you approach the white powdery beaches of Gibbs Cay, a school of Southern stingrays will likely greet you in the two-feet shallow waters of the Atlantic Ocean. As the resident marine life around Gibbs Cay, these friendly stingrays are used to humans and are even provide a safe encounter for children. Your expert guide will share tips on how to properly handle these stingrays and teach you about their habitats, how they live alongside humans, and how they breed. Bop in the water or swim beside the stingrays on this wildlife encounter.

Conclude your exciting tour with a conch demonstration from your captain who will prepare conch ceviche for you--a conch salad. You'll have enough time to dine on this delicious salad and relax on the white powdery sands of Gibbs Cay before heading back to your port destination.
