Default 1st Time in Turks & Caicos, suggestions?

Upcoming will be my first visit to Grand Turk in the Turks & Caicos.
Any suggestions for shore excursions or must-sees?

This port has limited options..Carnival built this port on an island, so, it's a bit different then others...

When you get off the ship, you walk down a long pier.. past a nice beach and through the gated area...Jimmy Buffet's Maragritaville is here, and a large pool...several shops, and a Carnival store, where, what you see onboard, is here in more quantity..basically it's a beach/pool day..right up your alley

I have heard the snorkeling/diving is amazing here. I am also visiting for the first time in May. My group booked an excursion to snorkel at the reef and swim with stingrays!

Just to follow up.....have returned and had a blast in Grand Turk!
Did a short bus tour to Governor's Beach, which was beautiful and great snorkeling, then stopped at Margaritaville on the way back for a fantastic time singing, dancing, and partying in the pool - beautiful spot!
