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.
