We were concerned about the hurricane and the after effects, on Provo.
Grand turk was hit very badly but Provo had little damage.The coral had a
fine coat of sand and the colors were muted. There were plenty of fish and
we saw grey reef sharks and barracuda and grouper and nice walls. the
diving is easy and there is no current. The boat is great and roomy--very
good operation.The water is beautiful and aqua and the beaches are great.
The Island is ugly however and over developed.Food is expensive. the
restaurants are overpriced.There were big sponges and nice life on the
walls but muted in color.We were lucky that the trip went well considering
the earlier weather. The hotel is very nice and the folks are friendly but
there is little to do for non divers except great beaches and warm water.
