Comments 12th time with Mitch Rolling's Blue Water Divers and same with Jenny Carnahan now owner-operator of Osprey after years at the Salt Raker. Grand Turk is a state of mind as much as a dive location. Quiet small old town and friendly atmosphere, no hustle with high proportion repeat customers. Reef is close-in and in excellent condition since mostly in a national park. Straight forward Caribbean diving. Dive operation synonymous with competence and Mitch's band doubles in evening as entertainment around town. Osprey is a leader in anyone's league of smaller personalised resort hotels. Staff are long serving. Probably the ideal spot for couples of mixed ability and experience. Old timers need not fear cruise ship arrivals. Nothing has been ruined. You hardly notice them.
