Default Grand Turk what to do?

I find Grand Turk really boring, but I'm going back. Last time I went to Margaritaville (rip off) and then to Jack's Shack which I enjoyed. Beach was rocky though and hard to swim in though. Prices on drinks were affordable and worth the walk to get their Mojito. This time I was wondering if the island tour is worth taking, Conch world is worth seeing, and if a boat snorkel trip would be worth the expensive price the cruise line charges?

Well, we went to a tiny island to see the sting rays....short trip but if you could go to the same place for longer it would be a good beach break...if you like quiet with nothing there... We liked Margaritaville.
Some answer questions...I also question answers

I foud this link,which offers some interesting info, and, options I was unaware of. I know if GT is on my itinerary I am going to check them out.

Unless you are a beach or pool person, I can understand the boredom. An island tour, looks interestingto me.


Trip, with her book & tea!

Unless they have added attractions since we went, which was 2 - 3 years ago, the island tour is probably the most uninteresting I've ever taken. We drove to the light house at the other end of the island, then made a special pass by the house that the driver was building! That was it.
Hope things are better now.
