KITE ADVENTURES OVERVIEW
The Turks & Caicos Islands boasts the most amazing kiteboarding conditions for kiteboarding. Long Bay’s kiteboarding beach on Providenciales is friendly to beginners of the sport and those taking lessons, due to the shallow flat-water with consistent side onshore winds. However, for the more experienced kiter, the Turks & Caicos archipelago offer countless miles of back country kiting on uninhabited islands, mangrove islands, lagoons, and breathtaking views beyond imagination!

OUR MOST POPULAR ADVENTURES
Ghost Ship Downwinder
The Ghost Ship is the most famous ship wreck in the Turks and Caicos, the Soviet oil rig service vessel turned Panama cargo ship La Famille Express is located off Long Bay Beach on Providenciales. Long Bay Beach is what made kiteboarding famous here when Kite Provo was the first school to start teaching in 2006 on the huge shallow Caicos Banks.
The Ghost Ship Downwinder is our most popular Kite Adventure because it is easier and less expensive and has quickly become a “Right of Passage” or iconic thing to accomplish while you are here on Providenciales. We take you upwind on our high performance wave runner or our boat. We drop you off at the famous Ghost Ship. You then do a self guided downwinder back to the beach. Since the winds are side onshore you are going directly downwind to get back to Long Bay Beach.
You decide how long to make the downwinder be going as slow or as fast as you want!
History of the Ghost Ship aka La Famille
In 2004, in the midst of Hurricane Fances, a privately-owned freighter broke loose from its mooring and drifted into the Caribbean Sea.
Today, the La Famille Express has become knows as the “Ghost Ship”. The eerie “Ghost Ship” has become iconic on the kiteboarding beach and as set the backdrop for thousands of kiters and photographs over the years. Kite Provo was the first school to chop their way through the heavy bushes to kite the almost entirely vacant Long Bay Beach. Now, it is bustling with luxury villas and is home to the new Kite Provo School and shop next to Beach Enclave luxury resort. The Ghost ship rests on a reef in a few feet of water, abandoned and desolate. It was built in 1952 by the Russian Navy as a cargo ship, the Fort Shevchenko. It was sold to an islander in the mid-1990s, but not before witnessing the Cuban Missile Crisis first-hand in 1962. Alone on the reef, rusting and decaying since the day it was wrecked, it serves as a visual landmark for boaters and kiters and a hidden attraction of the Turks and Caicos Islands.
