We show that in the limit of small Rossby number $\varepsilon$, the primitive equations of the ocean (OPEs) can be approximated by "higher-order quasi-geostrophic equations'' up to an exponential accuracy in $\varepsilon$. This approximation assumes well-prepared initial data and is valid for a timescale of order one (independent of $\varepsilon$). Our construction uses Gevrey regularity of the OPEs and a classical method to bound errors in higher-order perturbation theory.
