“Flamingo Divers Is Awesome”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Jayne and Mickey are just terrific. Granted they have a lot to work with. Beautiful walls and lots of big animals (five eagle rays, six reef sharks and a sea turtle--and that was just on the first of our six dives with them). That being said, they are great hosts and super dive masters. You clearly feel like a guest, and not just a customer. They know the sites, and they really know their way around the sites. They are quickly able to size up the skill levels of all eight divers on the boat and to offer a dive experience that everybody swears must have been tailored to them. The four of us will definitely be back to Provo to dive with Jayne and MIckely, and unequiivocally would recommend them for anybody with any skill level.

1st class , warm & professional operators. Truly, no hassles whatsoever even when you pull real newbie stuff. Jayne and Mickey put the "chill" and wonderment back into diving. 100% would go back and highly recommend Flamingo - For your next diving adventure -- go diving in Caicos with these guys !

“Excellent Service!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

I recently called to book a scuba trip with these guys, given all the great reviews, and unfortunately they were booked for our dates. Nevertheless, Jayne, the owner, spent a lot of time explaining the process to me over the phone (I'm new to diving) and even answered several follow up emails I had about places to stay on the island. All above and beyond. I wish I could dive with these guys. Jayne is great!!

“Great Service, Great Staff, equipment well maintained”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

I highly recommend anyone who wants a great diving experience while in Turks & Caicos. The boat only fits 8 people (book early) but it means you get a great personalised experience. They do not rush you to get into the water, they don't rush you to get out of the water and the group sets the pace; it's an overall enjoyable experience.

They bring you to dive sites that offer a huge variety of scenery and creatures. There is always something fascinating and new to see. They will always make sure to point out the wild life that is within the area and they are very knowledgeable of the creatures around.

The equipment that they give you is in superb condition, some of the best equipment I've seen. I've been diving with them for the past 5 years and the service keeps on improving.

“Two Great Dives with Flamingo Divers”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

Our 20 year old son spent two days with Jayne and Mickey diving while we were on vacation last week. He thoroughly enjoyed both days.

Jayne and Mickey run a very professional, yet personal operation and are focused on making sure every diver has a great experience. As non-diving parents, we always want to be sure our son is diving with an operation that focuses on safety and we were perfectly comfortable letting our son dive with Flamingo Divers. They only take out groups of 8 or less so they can spend time getting to know every diver and giving attention to those who are less experienced if necessary.

Both of his dives were great and he encountered so many things above the surface and below--a pod of dolphins, a flock of flamingos, many fish, reef sharks, a sea turtle, eagle rays, and eels. Jayne and Mickey definitely know the waters around Turks and Caicos and try to make every trip special.

Son cannot wait to return and dive with Flamingo Divers again--we are already making plans to visit next year and I will be contacting them as soon as we have our dates so he can dive with Jayne and Mickey once again. (On top of running a great dive operation, they are truly nice people. We feel as if we have made two new friends in Provo!)
