About this trip

Join Blue Planet for the perfect winter weekend getaway to Providenciales, known as Provo, in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Still relatively undiscovered, Provo offers warm weather, clear water, white sand beaches and miles of barely explored reefs.


PROVO

Just south of the Bahamas, the Turks and Caicos are actually 40 different islands and cays, but only eight are inhabited. The Columbus Passage, a 22-mile-wide channel, separates the Turks Islands from the Caicos Islands. 


A jewel in the Caribbean, the island of Providenciales offers some of the most spectacular beaches and ocean water in the world. From the unparalleled and internationally acclaimed Grace Bay Beach, to the sheltered and secluded Taylor Bay and Sapodilla Bay beaches, you’ll realize you’ve found paradise. 


The alluring turquoise waters of the Turks and Caicos Islands feature a vast, thriving coral reef ecosystem. Scuba diving in the Turks and Caicos is both accessible and impressive with breathtaking walls. With protected reefs dropping well past recreational dive limits just offshore, it’s easy to see why this is a diver’s paradise. 


THE DIVING


Minimum dive certification/experience:  Perfect for beginners. A great spot to complete your Open Water Diver certification, Advanced Open Water Diver and more.

 

A large area of the coast of Provo comprises the Princess Alexandra National Park within which there is no commercial or sport fishing allowed. As a result we can see a profusion of marine life at local dive sites, much of which remains undisturbed in its reef habitat by visiting divers. Even outside the boundaries of the Princess Alexandra National Park, the dive operators all happily support a policy of reef preservation and conservation.


We'll be diving with DIve Provo, a PADI 5 Star Dive Center catering to experienced divers as well as novice divers and dive students. Dive Provo is dedicated to providing guests with convenient and trouble-free diving. The staff will even set up your gear for your dive and break it down and rinse it at the end of the day. Just pack your bag, leave it on the dive boats and it will be ready for your next dive. 


PORTS OF CALL RESORT

The Ports of Call Resort is located within the beautiful Grace Bay area, a short 15 minute drive from Providenciales airport. The property layout comprises of a central building featuring a welcoming reception, business center, breakfast room, fitness room, and poolside bar. Rooms are located in two three-story buildings (no elevator) surrounding a lush tropical pool area that creates an intimate boutique setting. All rooms feature new furniture, upgraded bathrooms and a sitting area with full-size sofa bed and more. Wireless Internet access is available throughout the property and all stays include complimentary continental breakfast.


TRAVEL

Fly into the Provo airport (PLS) any time on Saturday, February 16th. You can fly back on Wednesday, February 20th — just be sure you give yourself 18-24 hours after your last dive!

I had so much fun! What an incredible way to ring in the New Year with old and new friends. The vessel was great, the crew was personable, fun, and safe, the food was incredible, the cabins were comfortable, and the dive deck was very accommodating!

I had a great time on this trip! The group was super fun! The crew was exceptionally friendly and very accommodating. Blue Planet did an amazing job as always! It was a fantastic way to spend New Years!!!
I had a great time diving in Belize. Ambergris Divers were great. The Sunbreeze Hotel had comfortable accommodations. Andrea and Kim were great trip leaders and made everyone feel comfortable. I had a great time and hope to travel with Blue Planet Scuba again.
Nice hotel accommodations at Sea Breeze, beautiful location, good diving on the reefs and especially at the Blue Hole. Andrea Williams and Kim Walker did a fantastic job organizing the trip for Blue Planet Scuba and working with the Belize DMs at Ambergris Divers.
Thank you so much for an amazing trip, it was more that I could have ever asked for.
