there's a dedicated rinse tank at the shop, where you also spend the
surface interval, and a table to work on cameras.  A fresh water barrel on
the boat for cameras.

We love Grand Turk, Oasis, and Osprey. We've been coming there, diving with
them for more than 10 years.  The reefs and the island have recovered well
from the devastation of the hurricanes three years ago (we were there
during Hurricane Hannah, and left just  before Hurricane Ike).  Oasis gives
great individualized service.  They have DM's that have been with them
forever, know the reefs really well, and are still enthusiastic about what
they're doing.  Only 6 people or fewer on a boat, and they try to make
groupings of similar skill/experience.  Rental gear is top quality, and
boats are in good shape.  Safety is well taken care of, but they don't
coddle the divers (at least the experienced ones!).  You are allowed to
dive your own profile, stay down as long as your air/computer will allow,
dive solo, with a buddy, or follow the DM.  Good wide angle and macro
subjects.  Lots of lion fish on each dive, unfortunately, but still plenty
of fish including lots of groupers and the usual reef denizens.  They'll do
a night dive on request for 2 or more divers.  The wall is only a couple
hundred yards from the shore, so you only have 10 minutes on the boat to
the dive site, and come back to the shop for the surface interval.  Can't
wait to go back.
