Beach Photos on Canvas

Beach Photos on Canvas Fort George Cay is a tiny scenic island found between Parrot Cay and Dellis Cay. The island is uninhabited and is a popular with locals and visitors alike as a day trip site from Providenciales. In 1795, a gun battery was constructed on the north end of the island by Loyalist planters to defend against pirates, privateers, the French and Haitian revolutionaries. After a few years, the British took over the fort. Today canons from these defenses could be seen in the shallow water right off the beach. Archeological digs and studies that have taken place on Fort George Cay have revealed some fascinating facts about the fort and the cay. It appears that the island has suffered from serious erosion, losing an estimated 150 feet over the last two hundred years, and that fortifications actually used to stand where the canons are found today in the ocean! When planning a trip to the Turks and Caicos, a trip to Fort St. George Island (Fort George Cay) is one the top places to visit. Years ago, when traveling to the Turks and Caicos, we booked a ½ day snorkeling tour. When the boat ran into trouble, and we had to go back to switch boats, the tour company offered us an extended tour that included St. George Island. It was one of the most magical experiences of our trip, and when returning to the Turks and Caicos this past week. The first thing we did upon arrival was attempt to book a half day charter to the deserted island. The timing of your tour is the most important part. The ocean is calm in the morning, and the swells can be rough and sometimes dangerous in the afternoon. 75% of the time, afternoon charters are cancelled due to inclement weather. Although your family might be looking forward to sleeping in during your trip, plan an early morning when booking this trip.
