Passengers visiting the Grand Turk Cruise Center will now be greeted by a pair of humpback whales along the 800’ feet of private beach (pictured right).
Created by California-based Storyland Studios, the massive 12-foot-high by 38-foot-long sculpture depicts two whales “breaching” through the powdery white sand. Adjacent to the sculpture is signage that offers a variety of interesting whale facts, along with photos of these majestic and mysterious creatures.
The Grand Turk Cruise Center was opened in 2006 by Carnival Corporation. The 2012 cruise season will bring 285 ship calls and 675,000 guests to the island.
