Comments We were in Turks and Caicos July 1- 8, 2006, our second trip. We stayed at Harbor Club Villas which is on the opposite side of the island from the busy, developed 7-mile beach, a 10 minute drive. Marta and Barry run the small, ten villa "resort" and are the most wonderful people. HCV is not on the ocean but by the marinas of several dive operations. It is not a five star resort so we loved it. We chose Flamingo Divers because of their small size, 6 divers max. Jayne and Micky are super nice and make you feel like family. Once you leave equipment with them you do not touch it until you depart. All two-tank a.m. dives were to West Caicos and were wonderful. Sharks on almost every dive and five on our last dive. Healthy reefs, coral, tons of fish but none of the numerous turtles four years ago. Only criticism, all dives were to West Caicos. We did dive with Ocean Vibes one day. We left from the busy side of the island and went to the NW wall. Great dives, nice people and I am glad we dove with them, but, big busy boat, 20 plus divers, stops at two resorts for pick-ups and lots of wasted time. T & C has great diving and if we go back, we will dive with Flamingo Divers and stay at Harbor Club Villas. Highly recommended.
