Comments We have gone diving on Provo for many years, but this was our first time diving with Dive Provo. It was a friendly, very well organized and professional operation. The staff were all very personable but safety conscious. They picked us up on time and worked hard to find the best dive sites given the water conditions. The food was the best "dive boat cuisine" we have ever experienced - actually something to look forward to! People were welcome to go off on their own or tag along with the dive guide. Staff took care of our equipment after asking our permission to do so.

Just curious: the dive operator at Ocean Club West appears to be Turtle Divers. Did you choose Dive Provo for a reason?

We had some negative experiences with Turtle Divers (e.g., not leaving any crew on the boat during dives, captain falling asleep at the wheel). We like Dive Provo better, and their shop is right across the street from Ocean Club West.
