You think you have seen it all......but not until you have seen "Black Forest" of Grand Turk. An underwater world of beautiful black coral. At a depth of about 90 feet you get to see some of the most beautiful coral formations that exist. Walls...More

I have spent more than four months diving this reef in the last three years. Each of the sites have their own special sights. This one is interesting as the wall curls in on itself. Bring a light, there is lots to see in the...More

normally don't get to see black coral but wall overhang blocks enough light that the black coral will grow at shallower depths (70-90 ft for this dive). Once back up over the wall by the boat mooring, there were lots of little coral formations to...More

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....More

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.
