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.

I'm a PADI Divemaster whith a critical eye and was thoroughly impressed with this operation. Very professional, small groups, not crowded, great dive briefing, long dive times, etc. And of course amazing T&C wall dives!!

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

My wife is a very novice diver -- OW certification and about 7 dives to date -- and was a little concerned about the deeper dives required by most sites in Turks & Caicos. After visiting a couple of operators, she decided on Provo Turtle Divers, mainly based on the smaller group sizes and possibility of a little more attention... More

While this was the first time we dove in T&C (so not much to compare it to), we were very happy with the dive sites the staff chose. We arrived at the scheduled time and they were very organized and we were off the dock shortly thereafter. We went to West Caicos both of the days we went with them... More

My two boys (aged 13 and 16) completed our PADI Open Water certification with Provo Turtle Divers. We had a fantastic experience. Our instructor, Gary, was very knowledgeable, experienced, and patient; this made our training a very pleasant and successful experience. The training in the pool at the Ocean Club Resort went very well, but the best part was the... More

I am an Open Water Scuba Instructor from Maple Ridge British Columbia and have had the pleasure of diving on a number of dive boats, with different divers around the world. As a PADI professional I have often been disappointed with the safety on boats and for sure disappointed with my husbands training on a dive boat and at times... More

I cannot say enough good things about PTD. I actually spent about 15 minutes reading the 7 poor and average reviews and honestly if you read them you will see one glaring theme, freedom.
