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

1st class operation. I was very impressed with Grant and Gary the Dive Masters. Art the captain knows all the best dive locations and personally found a lot of them.

My husband and I have dove with Provo Turtle Divers several times now, and consider them all friends. They run a first class, smaller dive operation with a personal touch. Whether your new to the sport or a seasoned veteran they will take great care of you !! Thanks Dave, Melinda & Art ! We'll definitely be back !

I got certified for my Open Water by Grant at PTD. Fantastic experience. Very good communications with Melinda over email while planning the trip, and all of the organization, eg, bus to the marina, having the right kid organized and in place, was very smooth. And Grant was a great instructor to be certified by. He was very methodical about... More

We used Provo Turtle Divers for 3 days of diving for our first time in Turks and Caicos in December. Overall, we had a really good time. The diving itself is really good with lots of fish, sharks, and interesting walls of coral. The dive boat was the nicest we've ever used - spacious, clean, and a pleasure to ride... More
