Dive With the Oldest and Most Respected Dive Operation in the Turks & Caicos Islands....... Established in 1970, Provo Turtle Divers, Ltd. Is the oldest and most experienced dive operation in the Turks & Caicos Islands. For over 44 years we have explored the reefs and walls of these islands, discovering new dive sites and uncovering some of the most unusual underwater spectacles accessible to divers in the Turks & Caicos.

My son and I spent 5 wonderful days diving with Provo Turtle Divers and I got to say, we enjoyed each and every dive. All the dives were wall dives with the first a bit deeper than the second. We dove 2 separate sites in 3 different areas (N.W. Point, West Caicos Island, and Provo). Visibility was 100+ with water... More

Just returned from another great week diving with TPD. Dave, Melinda, Art and the crew never disappoint. Sharks, turtles, and rays on almost every dive. The staff is courteous, helpful, and knowledgable. The boat is clean and well outfitted. We have been diving with TPD since 2001 and will never use anyone else.

I did my referral open water certification 4 dives over two days with Provo Turtle Divers. These guys were great. Greg was my instructor and he was outstanding. He made sure every skill was done exactly right, no cutting corners at all. Very friendly and very safety conscious. And all the while it was a great time diving, seeing sharks... More

Unlike my normal trips, I did not do a lot of research and organization and thus was on the island and did some "last minute shopping" and was very pleased with how it turned out. I dove twice and had different crews for the two days and they were both terrific. I got booked really quickly once I settled on... More

Art Pickering is still around after discovering much of the dive sites in Provo. Dive reservations were effienct, had all the gear, pick up at hotels and set up gear on the boat. You can store your gear there for multiple dives. Dive Master Gary and Grant were awesome. They only take small groups and most divers were advanced and... More

My wife and I have been diving the Caribbean for 25 years. We never go to the same island twice, not because we are dissatisfied, but because we prefer to explore new places. So we’ve worked with a lot of dive operations over the years. NEVER have we encountered an operation like Provo Turtle Divers. Their service and safety orientations... More

We are a family of 4 with 2 kids ages 13 and 15. The last time we went diving was one year ago when we got certified, so needless to say we were a bit rusty. I decided to arrange for a private dive master for the 3 days that we were with PTD. We had Gary, Kevin and Dave... More
