Comments This is our fifth year going to Grand Turk and our first time using Oasis Divers. We have used Sea Eye Diving in the past; however we found their service, dive boats and attitude of staff had become less and less customer friendly each year we returned. In contrast, we found Oasis Divers to be exceptionally customer friendly with their boats in great condition and friendly staff. They use 18 plus feet Carolina Skiffs for all dives. You simply back roll off the boat to begin your dive. The water, fish, coral and horizon are beautiful. When it comes to simple, easy diving, Grand Turk's Oasis diving is where its at. Our dive master ("Mackie") is always with a smile and great sense of humor. Although he has done a lot of diving, he always seems to enjoy getting wet.

The food in Grand Turk is adequate but nothing to write home about. There is some really good food and some just fair food. Osprey Hotel seems to get better every year we return. Make sure to have breakfast with Phyllis in the Courtyard Restaurant.
