A Belonger* to his bones, W. Hartley Squires (aka Bonefish) is an experienced offshore tuna fisherman, charismatic tour guide, and enthusiastic aficionado on Christopher Columbus’ landfall. 

Born on the eastern seaboard of the United States, he arrived in the Turks and Caicos some 30 years ago, promptly acquiring the moniker “Bonefish” as his marine radio “handle” in an era when telephone landlines were few and far between.

The name stuck and the islands got in his blood. Three decades later, there’s no prouder citizen of Grand Turk and no more accomplished guide to its geography, history and lore. 

Bonefish has spent his entire life on the water and knows every inch of this land and surrounding archipelago. He’s especially proud to share his knowledge of Columbus’ landfall and to introduce visitors to the Turks islanders, people he describes as ‘the nicest individuals on the earth’. 

* “Belonger” is a word used to denote officially recognized citizens of the Turks and Caicos Islands
