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.
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.
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.
