     Provo is the opposite of Grand Turk - multi million dollar condos,
long boat rides to the dive sites on big roomy boats, tightly run dive
operations; but definitely worth going. After 4 days on Grand Turk we came
to Provo. My 2 days diving were with Caicos Adventures. Fifi runs an
efficent but fun dive operation and handles 20+ divers on the 54' boat by
breaking them down into small groups of 5 or 6 divers. We had 5 DM's on the
trip! Coral bleaching evident but I got some excellent shark pictures.
     Royal West Indies has become a favorite. It feels like the higher
priced resorts yet it's one of the least expensive condo resorts on Provo,
definitely check it out.
     A snorkel trip to Iguana Island and the adjoining cays for shelling is
a nice way to spend an afternoon, as is a trip to the only Conch Farm in
the Caribbean. If you're there during a full moon, see the glow worms after
dusk. Take a drive to Northwest Point.
