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 wife and I did 4 days with Dave, Art, Andre, and Kevin. We had a blast. Andre and kevin were great dive masters. They know all the dive sites. My wife completed open water and I did advanced open water. The walls were amazing. We saw reef and nurse sharks on most of the 8 dives. We also saw... More

I absolutely enjoyed 3 days of great diving with Provo Turtle Divers. Their spacious boat has breezy upper deck, dry storage area, water jug and head upfront, coolers, shower and a table in the back. The boat crews were joy to work with - Captain Art and Dave, instructors Kevin, Jerome and a huge thanks goes to Andre who took... More

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

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
