Comments I can not say enough about Dive Provo. I have been to other destinations that have good dive operators, but I think that Dive Provo is by far the best that I have ever had.
When I first arrived on Turks and Caicos I really wasn't feeling good so I decided to take a day off from diving. They crew got me oriented to the boat and up to speed with the others quickly. The dive shop provided you with a rental mesh bag that your equipment would be kept in all week. Once I got my gear on the boat I never had to worry about taking it off or rinsing it, because it was done for me. That was a first.
If it wasn't bad enough that I had felt bad my first day there my BC developed a problem while I was there. My power inflator hose had came "unglued" from the bladder. I was told that if I could not fix my BC there were rentals in the dive shop. After trying to fix it and having no luck I thought I would have to rent equipment that I had never used and might not be real comfortable with. The captain of the boat that day said that he might have a glue that might work. He said if that didn't work there was not a lot that could be done since there are evidently not a lot of repair facilities on the island. He asked me if he could give it a try and I said that he could. Well the next day my BC was back on the boat and it worked prefectly. We had decided to do a deep dive that day and needless to say I felt a lot better doing it in my own equipment. To my kowledge they never charged me for fixing it. I know I missed a day of diving and I never recovered that money getting my BC fixed made up for it.
Thanks to Dive Provo and their staff my dive vacation was a lot more enjoyable than it could have been.
