HOW TO GET THERE:

 

Get to Miami the best and cheapest way you can. You can check with us to see if we have any special packages available from your area. We do have limited specials but you must be booked well in advance to insure availability. For those of you coming from the west coast or Canada and having to overnight in Miami, we have special rates with the Miami Best Western. They will pick you up at the airport, serve you continental breakfast & evening Hor's D'oeuvres, free cocktails and redeliver you to the airport at no extra charge at fabulous rates. You will need our preferred executive traveler number (P.E.T.) when making reservations.

Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa Residents should call us for direct charter flights available from those cities direct to Providenciales via Air Canada & American Airlines.

All others will fly American out of Miami to Providenciales and then on to Middle Caicos via TCA or Sky king or InterIsland Airways. Costs vary on Sky King depending on the amount of people but normally average out @ $30.00 - $35.00 per person or less one way. Estimated flight time out of Miami is 1 hour & 20 minutes and then 17 minutes from Provo to Middle Caicos. YOU WILL NEED A PASSPORT OR PROOF OF CITIZENSHIP, BIRTH CERTIFICATES ARE O.K.

YOU WILL BE PICKED UP IN MIDDLE CAICOS BY AN AUTHORIZED TAXI SERVICE AND DELIVERED TO THE VILLA OF CHOICE . THE TAXI FEE IS $10.00 PER CAR LOAD WITH ONE OF OUR TRANSFER VOUCHERS. OUR PROPERTY MANAGER, ERNEST FORBES JR. WILL MEET YOU AND INTRODUCE YOU TO YOUR VACATION ACCOMMODATIONS.

Guide service and tours are not included in your rental fees. Rates vary from $40.00 to $75.00 per day and are recommended to navigate the reefs and inlets. Altho we offer bare boat charter / skiffs, you must have a guide to venture offshore or bonefishing in the flats. This is necessary to guarantee your safety and our equipment. For information on tours and sportfishing packages, please refer to Middle Caicos Tours.

THE FOOD CHAIN

 

The main food chains are in Provo & Grand Turk. Food stuffs for personal consumption are duty free and therefore guests overnighting in Miami are recommended to pack a 44-48 qt kooler with meats & special luncheon favorites etc. This will enable you to bring back Lobsters, Conch & Grouper etc. which is entirely legal. Upon arrival in Provo, hire a cab for $6.00 and venture to Island Pride Supermarket or IGA and pick up perishables such as fresh veggies, milk, butter, beer, soda, bread, fresh fruit and more beer. Ask the store to pack your groceries in cartons for ease of handling. There is no extra charge.

For those guests staying more than a week, we recommend leaving a suitable cash deposit with Island Pride Supermarket and a simple phone call will put fresh supplies on the next plane. Pick up the unused portion of your deposit upon departure. You will find much seafood and bountiful lobsters available in season from the local fisherman or your guides will dive up your dinner at no extra charge upon request. Most dry goods are available on Middle Caicos in several mom & pop grocery stores such as Annie or Maria Taylors in Conch Bar or the Brown Bombers ( Gordo's ) general store in Bambarra. Upon arrival you will find some basic needs & seasonings in the villa's which you are welcome to use. Please Replace If Possible.

WHAT TO TAKE

We strongly recommend you take as little as possible realizing that the average temperature in the islands is 80 degrees. Ladies might wish to bring a light dress and the men a light pair of pants particularly if you are going to attend church in Bambarra or Conch Bar. You are most welcome.

Bring your own ultra light tackle. We have 20 to 50 lb. rental tackle however no guarantees can be made due to damage misuse etc. We are constantly updating and replacing equipment. These fish are Big & Mean. Some snorkeling equipment is available for rent as well as on-site compressor and scuba tanks @ 7.50 per tank. Weights and backpaks are also available for a slight fee. WE HAVE A FEW REGULATORS AND B.C'S AVAILABLE BUT DO NOT RELY ON OUR EQUIPMENT BEING AVAILABLE UNLESS RESERVED IN ADVANCE. More equipment and boats are on the way to service your every whim....

The women in the settlements are excellent crafts people and you will find ample opportunity to purchase beautifully woven baskets, hats, mats etc.. There is a small gift shop in Conch Bar specializing in tee shirts and fishing tackle and native cooks can be hired to come in and prepare their favorite dishes... A must do experience to really taste the flavor of the islands . Ask Ernest to order fresh island bread upon arrival... You wont believe what your tasting...
