Comments Most dive sites are a long boat ride from Grace bay, and the marina's where most dive boats dock. Makes for a long day for 2 tank dives. The water is gorgeous, the coral is pristine, and the water is smooth and silky like the Caymans, but warmer. Island roads are terrible, but you don't need to travel much. Restaurants are pricey, but negotiable. Provo Turtle Divers is an experienced operation, that can adapt to any circumstance, including novice and referral divers, to advanced computer divers. I would highly recommend them.
