Grand Turk FlowRider Excursion Reviews
You really don't need to book an excursion for Grand Turks unless you like to scuba. The port is right out side of Margarittaville. There are complementary chairs on the beach and there is a great pool, restaurant and swim up bar there as well. You can rent snorkel gear for $5 and do all kinds of water sports. My 2 boys (13 and 15) did the Flo Rider there and had a blast. The crew who ran the ride were very friendly and helpful. This was probably the best stop on the cruise..you got the best of everything in one stop. Not to mention it was absolutely gorgeous!!
GRAND TURK, home of the world's largest Margaritaville and the island where John Glenns space capsule touched down back in 1962 after his visit to the moon. My kids did the FLOWRIDER experience...with video and pics to purchase. Be sure to book before you cruise or while on the ship if you wait until you get on the isalnd you might not be able to do it.. Cruisers get first dibs and a min of 5 ppl are needed to do it. The drinks, food and entertainment at Margaritaville was wonderful! The sand had stones in it. To enter the water you should consider wearing watershoes...at first it feels like quicksand and then you have big rocks covered with moss to contend with. So the swimming was not ideal, but refreshing. Maybe further down the beach it wouldve been different. If we go again...we will swim in the Margaritaville pool. We stayed near the ship. The Flowrider experience is for the adventurous. Watching everyone try to surf the waves was entertaining.
