There is not a bad dive site on Grand Turk. Atleast Oasis Divers has never taken us to one. Black Forest is a great wall dive with huge black gorgonians jutting out from the wall outcroppings. It's easy to get mesmerized and forget your depth. Keep an eye on that depth gauge and stay with your guide. We're always looking... More

This is a deep wall dive with black coral in mass amounts at 80-100 feet. Due to a lucky mix up, I actually got to dive this site twice. Under the overhanging wall at just over 100 feet are massive formations of red growths. I'm still not sure what it is, but a very nice dive site.

This was a great site with lots of sea life, cuddly Grouper and a couple of amorous turtles and numerous other critters along the way.

I liked diving this spot because it is shallow like Library. It's probably 25 ft to the top of the wall (maybe less) and has lots of life. Good for new divers too.

Great dive! Don't miss out on this one. The wall overhangs and black coral abounds under the edge of the overhang. Not usually seen at these depths. I would definitely do this dive again.
