Sailrock Resort on South Caicos offers a pre-packaged day-trip for $175 per person, which includes flights from Providenciales, transport on South Caicos to Sailrock Resort, and access to resort amenities. For more information,
visit their website.
Found on the eastern end of the Caicos Islands chain, the sleepy South Caicos offers historical salt salinas, impressive coastlines, and a laid-back old Caribbean atmosphere.
Both domestic flights and passenger ferry services connect South Caicos to Providenciales and Grand Turk. Flight schedules are most convenient for day trips, yet some of the ferry routes work as well.
South Caicos remains a very interesting destination. Hotel rates are quite reasonable, so the island is also great for short overnight stays.

interCaribbean is the primary provider of flights to South Caicos, with several flights per day. Rates are about $150 per person roundtrip (2018). Flight time is about 20 minutes from Providenciales.
For domestic flights, we advise arriving at the airport at least 45 minutes prior to flight departure.
A roundtrip passenger ferry service is offered twice per week between Providenciales and South Caicos. However, this service may not be viable for day trips due to the schedule, as the layover in South Caicos is often less than an hour.
Travel time is about 75 minutes ($100 roundtrip, 2018) and the route is offered on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
Caribbean Cruisin' is the primary ferry operator.
We highly recommend renting a vehicle during your stay on South Caicos. The main settlement of
Cockburn Harbour isn’t large, however, many of the spectacular coastlines and beaches can be quite a distance off.
Unfortunately, rentals are both more expensive and limited, and moreso than on ourother islands. Rates are about $150 a day including tax and fuel for a minivan or SUV (typically not the best condition vehicles).
