Diving in Turks + Caicos

Turks + Caicos, Caribbean: ... Or, if you're very lucky, a hawksbill turtle
Turks & Caicos's insider take:

Divers of all levels of skill will find T&C idyllic, and while most of them will get no farther than Providenciales Island, and be happy with that, some real discoveries await at the other islands. Off the west coast of Grand Turk Island, the nearly vertical sides of an oceanic trench rise almost to the surface, creating some of the most spectacular wall diving in the region. On Salt Cay it’s possible, more or less, to dive in and sing along with whales, and South Caicos Island is a good bet for anyone wanting to have a social encounter with really big fish. Or, for the history of it, there’s Molasses Reef off West Caicos Island, resting place for what is believed to be the oldest European shipwreck in the Western Hemisphere. If you are not a certified diver, but want to get into the water with a tank on, two experienced companies are Provo Turtle Divers, based, as their name might lead you to believe, on Providenciales at the Turtle Cove Marina (800-833-1341;, and Grand Turk-based Blue Water Divers (649-946-2432; If being instructed in something is not how you want to spend your vacation, virtually every island has outstanding snorkeling. Just make sure you try it beyond Grace Bay, where for the most part all you’ll see is how clear the water is.
