Grand Turk

Some of the most relaxed diving around. Less than 1km from the shore.

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.

Insider's View

Grand Turk is home to the Columbus National Marine Park with around 25 moored dive sites amongst others along the length of the island on the leeward side. The beautiful and spectacular wall dives are covered with hard corals, sharks, groupers, triggerfish, yellowtail, turtles, batfish, flying gurnards and much more.

The island has, as far as the eye can see miles of white sandy beaches, crystal clear, turquoise blue water and a laid back atmosphere making it a slice of paradise for divers.

Destination Fact File

Some of the most relaxed diving around. Less than 1km from the shore.

Grand Turk is only six miles long and just over a mile wide, blessed with miles of sandy beaches and uninhabited cays. The island is much quieter and less built up than Providenciales (Provo) and offers a totally different holiday experience. The islands hotels are located on the beach with great views of the Caribbean sea. The days consist of lounging around the beach and diving. There is some site seeing to be done around the island which can easily be done in a day. A visit to the old lighthouse is essential as the views are just breathtaking and the Grand Turk Museum to understand more about the history of the island.

The islanders are all very friendly and really bring the spirit of the Caribbean to everyone that visits. There is real feeling of community on the island due to a small population of about 3700 people.

There is one main road running down the side of the island which most of the hotels are located. The rest of the island is made of private residences and the supporting services required to keep the island running and many items are imported.

In whale watching season it is possible to encounter these amazing creatures on day trips. Season runs from February to April.

Grand Turk Diving Holidays - Diving Information



Grand Turk diving is sometimes understated due to the other options in the region. However, as we found this is not to be underestimated. It won’t give you the excitement of shark dives in the Bahamas or big wall dives at Provo but does offer world class coral and topography with excellently preserved reefs and a good amount of fauna.

The island has more than 25 permanently moored sites located in the Columbus National Park, just minutes from your resort doorstep. Since this pristine wall is only a quarter mile offshore, boat rides are only ten minutes to the reef, with lush and pristine dive sites.

Summer diving brings perfect water conditions and increased sightings of manta rays. The water is teaming with life and the walls are renowned for having amazing diversity of hard and soft corals. Sponge growth is also abundant, and overall the reef system is incredibly lush and healthy. The tunnels, arches, undercut and outcrops that form the sites have their own special predominant features that create a special variety and magic all their own.
