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. We believe in small group diving with concierge level service - no "cattle boat" diving with us!

My son and I are both "northeast divers", so this was a fairly new experience for us. We're used to heavy doubles, cold water, limited visibility, and thick wetsuits or drysuits. So, after twelve years of that, we decided to give 'warm water' a try. We weren't disappointed! We did three days of dives with Art and PTD back in... More

Loved all the dive masters, Dave, Andre and Stephanie. Very large comfortable boat. Felt very safe. Several Bubble Watchers. Saw lots of fish including lion fish, sharks, large crab, turtles. Dive sites were Northwest Wall and Thunder Dome. would definitely use Provo Turtle Divers again!

Dived 2 days with Provo Turtle Divers. From start of trip to finish operation was first class. Safety was a priority at all times. Trip out too dive sight was briefed in advance. Once at dive sight a well thought out dive plan was explained to everyone on boat. There where 9 or 10 divers on each trip. Each person... More

We headed out on a two tank dive and had a good time. The dive masters know the area well, so they can explain what's likely to be spotted at each dive. The captain was helpful in sharing other island information; restaurants etc so it was an informational trip.

My buddies and I had the six most consistently great dives we've ever had with Provo Turtle Divers. Melinda, Art, Dave, Andre (the giant), and Jerome (Lord Byron) provided excellent service, but the reefs themselves were the stars of the trip. Dive sites were Amphitheater, Grand Canyon, Boat Cove, Gully, Rock Garden, and Pickering's Wall. Dave's dive briefings including artistic... More

We did 4 days of 2 tank dives with Provo Turtle Divers. We have done around 30 dives this years and this outfit was the best. We went to some fantastic places and only saw one other group of divers during the four days. The dives were amazing, very scenic and we saw quite a lot. The boat was really... More

Picture was taking at Turtle Cave beach. Amazing local for watching the sunset. You can get in for the beach public access.

My husband, Rob and I, along with our daughters, Christina and Lauren enjoyed 4 terrific days of diving with Dave and his crew. Everyone was friendly, professional and fun, lots of great stories and looking after each diver's individuals needs. The equipment was first class and new. We were pampered between each dive as they switched our tanks and gear.... More

I am an intermediate diver at best so perhaps I have a limited reference point for this review. But, I can't say enough nice things about this operation, Jerome and Dave are great dive masters. Some of the best diving in the Caribbean! I have noticed a trend among Caribbean dive outfits, many don't communicate well, respond to emails and... More

These guys were awesome I normally prefer smaller dive outfits over the larger ones and these guys were exactly what I was looking for. Melinda runs a great group. Jerome was professional and fun to hang out with. The whole crew was great to hang out with. Not sure what else they could have done to make this more enjoyable.
