Comments This was our 5th trip to the Turks and Caicos and third for Grand Turk. The diving off of Grand Turk is very good. The boat rides are short 10 minutes or less and the coral is in very good condition. Oasis Divers is a very good dive operation and provides lots of extras (whale watching, snorking with the rays off of Gibbs Caye and dive trips to Salt Caye). We had heard much about a cruise ship coming, but only saw one and there is very little change since being there two years ago. (they do have a wonderful new airport however). My average dive time was 63 minutes with my longest dive being 74 minutes. We stayed at the Aqua House and two bedroom condo about a ten minute walk to town. We were picked up in the morning for diving, but did walk to dinner. This was a very nice accomodation right on the water and in calm weather provided good snorkeling. I highly recommend Grant Turk for wonderful diving, if you are not interested in alot of other ammenities.
