Once in Providenciales (Provo), scheduled interisland air service to South Caicos (45 miles away) is provided by InterCaribbean. Their schedule changes periodically, so please call them direct for booking & to reconfirm your tickets before your trip. Private air charter service is offered by CaicosExpress and is our primary recommendation, especially when travelling with a group of 4 or more as pricing becomes more competitive.
Another travel option from Provo to South Caicos is the South Caicos Ferry run by Russell Jennings. He travels from Provo to South around 3pm most afternoons and departs South Caicos for Provo around 9:30amin the morning and leaves Provo for South Caicos around 3:30pm. The ferry is a great option that we use frequently. The only drawback is he doesn’t run in if weather conditions are extreme.
