Excellent dive site. Try to go days where there are no cruise ships in Grand Turk, otherwise is full of snorkelers and boats.

Very healthy reef, coral is beautiful, lots of sea life. All the walls are 2000-7000 ft, lots of room to dive. Most sea life from 35-70 feet watch you profile!

This snorkel spot is one of the best I have ever been to. We booked crystal seas adventures, they were great. The water was beautiful and clear. Many types of tropical fish to see. Can't wait to go back

The library is one of the best sites to dive in Grand Turk, which is saying something, considering the many great dive spots the island has to offer.

We did a night dive here with Smitty and Grand Turk Diving. Saw giant crabs feeding themselves, several good size lobster and many parrotfish tucked into rocks in their mucous cocoon. Then we went to the shallow area, turned off our dive fights and let the fireworks begin. The bioluminescence was amazing, and it looked liked fireworks underwater.

Went snorkeling here in August and it was one of the best snorkel spots I have ever been to. I've been snorkeling in the Bahamas, the Keys, and Mexico and this was one of my favorites. I saw two sharks and a huge variety of fish. The coral was stunning as well

Amazing. That's how I would describe it in one word.. The water clarity is crystal clear the fish are bright and plentiful and the ledge is incredible. It literally goes from 30 to 7000 feet deep. Never seen anything like it. I have seen better and brighter coral but the ledge is absolutely impressive!! A must see for a snorkeling... More

We took a private charter to snorkel here, avoiding the cruise ship cattle boats. We had a great time, saw many fish, beautiful coral and even some friendly nurse sharks. It's a great stop!

We purchased tickets for semi sub at grand Turk. You have to be tendered out to the reef about a mile from the pier. What's even better is it's air conditioned and you don't get wet even though you five feet under water. Once back on Grand Turk island, go get yourself a margarita at jimmy buffets place. You will...
