The Turks and Caicos Islands in the Caribbean are not only the perfect destination for those seeking a tranquil beach getaway, but they are a diver’s paradise. Salt Cay, Grand Turk, and Providenciales are the islands that are most popular for wall diving, each of which offers its own unique traits. Depending on what your preferences are, you might want to visit one, two, or all of three of these amazing dive spots.
Salt Cay is a tiny island located just a few miles away from Grand Turk, so divers have the option of staying on Salt Cay or just staying on Grand Turk and making daily excursions. Divers can see tiger groupers and black corals in Northwest Point, an old shipwreck in HMS Endymion, or the beautiful coral gardens at Kelly’s Folly. Divers visiting between February and April might also have the opportunity to witness the hundreds of migrating humpback whales.
Grand Turk is home to McDonald’s—but probably not the one you’re thinking of. This famous dive site, however, was named after the well-known fast food chain due its coral arch. Divers commonly encounter Nassau groupers, hawksbill turtles, mammoth sponges, and a variety of colorful corals.
Providenciales—or just Provo for short— offers a stunning 14-mile barrier reef bordering on Grace Bay on the north shore. Provo is also an ideal choice for those who want more activity options aside from diving. It is also the departure point for West Caicos, with vast underwater wildlife sightings including clown wrasse, Caribbean reef sharks, parrotfish, and angelfish.
