Turks & Caicos Islands

The Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) form the south-eastern extremity of the Bahamas chain and lie 90 miles north of Haiti and the Dominican Republic and 575 miles south-east of Miami. The territory comprises some 40 islands and cays split into two groups by a deep-water channel, with a total land area of 193 square miles. Only six of the islands are permanently inhabited: Grand Turk; Salt Cay; South Caicos; Middle Caicos; North Caicos and Providenciales.

Turks & Caicos Islands are members of the British Red Ensign Group and operate as a Category Two Red Ensign (British) Registry, which can register ships of up to 150 gross tons (GRT) and pleasure vessels, that is, those not operated commercially, of up to 400 GRT. Pleasure vessels, by definition, refer to ships used for sport or pleasure, which are not operated commercially.
