The weather in Turks and Caicos is near perfect year round. Usually conditions on the water are calm, making the diving easy and visibility 100ft+. Above water temperatures range from 85-90 in the summer and 80-85 in the winter, and there is always plenty of sunshine. Water temps range from 78-84F (25-29C). Fall is hurricane season and they have seen their share of named storms. Winter can be windier, but is also when humpback whales may be seen, making their transit from the North Atlantic to the Caribbean to breed and give birth. Diving here is great year-round.
The island of Providenciales (Northwest Point) is home to Black Coral Forest, a wall dive starting with a sandy bottom around 45ft that drops to over 300ft. The underwater wall structure has several swim-throughs and several large black coral bushes. Pelagic animals such as hammerheads are occasionally seen swimming by. Also off Providenciales is The Dome, a dive site named after a sunken dome originally used for a reality TV game show. Now in pieces, the wreckage has become an artificial reef teeming with macro life. Blennies seem to have burrowed into every bit of the dome and you can also see nudibranchs, flamingo tongues, white tip sharks and turtles. It’s a great night dive too.
On West Caicos a favorite dive site is Rock Garden Interlude, another sand flat at 40ft that drops off to a sheer wall. The sandy area has garden eels, stingrays and yellow-headed jawfish. The wall is covered in colorful sponges and a friendly Nassau Grouper is usually found here. Gullies is another great dive site that usually has lots of grey reef sharks, barracuda, and sting rays.
French Cay is an uninhabited bird sanctuary that’s looks to be just a small bit of sand. The diving is great including the sites Rock N Roll with massive barrel sponges, pillar coral, huge lobsters and nurse sharks. Double D has two large mounds of healthy coral and tons of fish including lots of angelfish, trumpetfish, and grunts.
大特克is 75 miles east of the island of Providenciales and also mostly wall diving. The dive site Tunnels, has arching corals that has created two great swim-throughs that have great lighting. It’s also a good site to see mantas.
Overall Turks and Caicos have a lot to offer a diver including sharks, turtles, great underwater structures, and great macro life including seahorses, pipehorses, and nudibranches.

Offering boat dives for small groups (they say eight divers max per dive master), they also set up accommodation and diving packages with resorts. Dive Provo is another reputable shop, and a Trip Advisor favorite, that has three boats and offers all levels of PADI training including Discover Scuba Diving.

What a great diving operation! I normally do not give 5/5 but I will do it this time! Bill & Steph do know very, very well how to organize a dive operation given the fact they have worked as dive instructors for so many years. I am surely glad they decided to open up their own operation. Great, fast, new Boat, excellent dives, safety all the time in mind and simply just great fun. Furthermore, they know you are on holidays and they go above and beyond to make your time with them comfy one. E...
