Provo

Turks & Caicos

Provo is the more mainstream island and is built up with many facilities including some world class restaurants. Diving wise there are big walls and reefs to see.

  • Wall diving in Provo
  • Reef diving in Grand Turk
  • World class coral sand beaches
  • Couples/families
  • Learning to dive
  • Whale watching (sesaonal)

Grand Turk

Turks & Caicos

The best way we can explain the diving is to think of it as a mini great barrier reef just 1km from the shore. Resorts are on the beach and life here is much slower than the main island of Provo.

Provo

In Provo you will have endless opportunities for close encounters with pelagics as this destination guarantees horse-eyed jacks, hawksbill turtles, bottlenose, spotted eagle rays, eels and grouper sightings. Humpback whales migrating to the Silver Banks off the Dominican Republic to mate and calf are also seen here from January to March.

When visiting Provo, wall diving is on the menu regardless of the area you choose to dive. The West Caicos area has 20 or more sites around the wall on the west side of the island giving you the opportunity to see incredible sponges, coral formations and come close to some of the larger residents of this inhabited island. The North West Caicos is equally exciting and you can have an enjoyable dive at the “Shark Hotel” wall and find schools of grunts, snappers, goatfish and as the name suggests spot small reef sharks or try a dive at “The Hole in the Wall” site which is limited to one diver in the hole at a time giving you an incredible sensation when emerging into the blue water.



Grand Turk

The Grand Turk has some of the most pristine wall diving in the world all located on the west coast of the island due to the heavy current, surge and, according to the locals sharks on the east coast. There are more than 25 moored sites located in the Columbus National Park, just minutes from the resort doorstep.

Grand Turk is also very close to the Columbus Passage which separates the Turks Islands from the Caicos Islands. This 8,000 foot deep passage serves as major transit line for migrating spotted eagle rays, manta rays, turtles and dolphins.
