Comments Dale and Everette, owners and operators of Oasis Divers are the standard by which others should be measured. Over the years I have found them to be absolutely honest, accomodating and most knowledgeable about running a first class operation. There are four Carolina Skiffs (three 24' and one 28') that are boarded directly from the beach in front of the dive shop. Divers are distributed so that no boat is ever crowded. Entry and exit are very simple and there is always a divemaster to give you a hand with your equipment, should you need it. For those who like to be served hand and foot, the staff will set up your gear and you need not concern yourself with it until the day you leave. That being said, the icing on the cake, of course, is the diving itself. Grand Turk has a wall that has nothing to envy any other. Fish life is plentiful, the corals are vibrant and there is something for every taste. I have been there more times than I can count and will return at every opportunity.
