Comments Dale and the folks at Oasis Divers and Aqua House condos offer the best service we have had anywhere. The staff was very accommodating and low stress, yet it was the most efficiently run dive shop we have ever used. The diving was beautiful and the reef is in excellent condition. There were lots of fish, turtles and rays. The wall is incredible and the boat rides are short, 5-10 minutes. Divemmasters set up your gear for you and give good briefings. There was not a lot of current or difficult diving, so Grand Turk could be suitable for beginners. Aqua house condos are right on the beach, and are very nicely furnished and decorated. The condo came with lots of extras, including a fully equipped kitchen, basic food supplies (such as condiments, coffee, popcorn), washer/dryer, entertainment center with a good selection of DVDs, regional interest books, etc. We were always picked up for diving so gear transporting was not an issue. Dale even drove us to the grocery after picking us up from the airport. Oasis provides bicycles which are perfect for touring the small island. Not a big selection of restaurants or shops, but the quality of available artwork and souvenirs is generally nice. Grand Turk is a wonderful relaxing place, not too touristy.
