Middle Caicos Ferries

You can take a ferry to North Caicos then drive to Middle Caicos

Ferries play an important role in transportation through the Turks and Caicos despite the fact that not every island is touched directly by their service. Thanks to the recently constructed causeway that connects Middle Caicos with North Caicos, tourists staying on Middle Caicos are not privy to all of the same transportation options to those staying on North Caicos.

Caribbean Cruisin'

Caribbean Cruisin' offers daily transportation between Providenciales and North Caicos with side trips to South Caicos on Fridays and Sundays. Those staying on Middle Caicos benefit from the ferry that runs to North Caicos. The colorful catamaran can carry up to 42 passengers at one time and travels to the island leaving the Walkin Marine & Sons on Providenciales at 6:30 a.m., 9:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 3:00 p.m., and 5:00 p.m., for $25(USD) each way on a trip that lasts just a under a half an hour.

When you arrive on North Caicos, you'll have to rent a car and drive to Middle Caicos because there is no public transportation to speak of. The return trip from North Caicos is 7:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 4:00 p.m., and 5:30 p.m. so make sure you give yourself enough time to make it back across the causeway from Middle to North Caicos safely.

No, Caribbean Cruisin' won't get you directly to Middle Caicos, but it can get you pretty close – plus you'll have the opportunity to see other islands in the Turks and Caicos chain along the way.
