Grand Turk

Turquoise Glow

 

Where we are diving

Feel the warm sand on the soles of your feet as the cool ocean waves roll over your toes. Gentle trade winds rustle the palm and coconut trees behind you. Water so clear it nearly glows. This is Grand Turk, one of the world’s top scuba destinations.

On the leeward side of the island, your dive sites are known for colorful and vibrant coral and marine life. There is something here for every diver from 30’ to deep plunges. The crystalline visibility opens up a world of brilliant barrel, tube, and plate sponges and coral in nearly all shades of the rainbow. Schools of jewel-like fish dart and flow throughout the healthy reef, and rays of light filter down from the surface. Make sure to bring a camera to capture the hawksbill turtles, wild bottlenose dolphins, or spotted eagle rays that make appearances in this magnificent landscape.

 

Diving with the experienced and knowledgable Oasis Divers enhances each dive as they know the best places to go and how to spot creatures that are otherwise easy to miss. They will also make sure all you have to do is show up and enjoy your dive. Oasis Divers and your Diventures staff will ensure that all the details are taken care of for you, including setting up your dive gear each day. Diventures provides safe and fun dives of a lifetime that come from years of experience and a passion for sharing the beauty of our blue planet.

JoAnn Haack, Instructor Trainer and Director of New Business Development

I have always been drawn to the underwater world and the beauty I’ve seen in pictures and movies. Once I learned it’s possible to dive in Iowa, I never looked back. As a level 8 diver, I have helped many new divers take their first breaths underwater and have taught ages 10 to 66 since becoming a dive professional in 2008.

Resort Details

 

Where we are staying

Want a room with a view? Say no more. Osprey Beach Hotel is nestled right on golden Grand Turk sands. Let the ocean waves lull you to sleep each night, or spend some downtime with your feet up, taking in the view right from your beachfront room. Of course, the mouth-watering and tempting local and international dishes will eventually draw you to the restaurant on site. Or you may want to wander down to the poolside to sip on a tropical cocktail or cool drink.

There is so much to do for non-divers here as well!  Explore the island and shore on horseback, snorkel through the colorful shallow waters, or even head out on a dune buggy adventure!

Welcome to your next diventure in Grand Turk!

Know Before
You Go

Water
In most cases, the piped water is perfectly safe to drink, yet bottled water is the common choice due to the poor taste of piped water. One gallon of water is provided in your room and a water fill station is within walking distance. Piped water in the Turks and Caicos almost always originates from one of two sources: reverse osmosis desalination, and rainfall collection.

Electricity
On the Turks and Caicos Islands, U.S. Plugs – 120V, 60Hz, are used. Converters and adapters are only required for 220V European visitors.

Language
English is the official language of the Turks and Caicos Islands. Haitian and Dominican immigrants speak Haitian Creole (a French-derived) and Spanish, respectively.

Money
The US Dollar is the only accepted currency in the islands. Most local businesses and restaurants accept credit cards. However, two of the favorite spots (sand bar and poop deck) only have cash, so bring a little extra.

Tipping
When you’re staying at a hotel or resort, there is a 10% service charge added to the bill. That is a baseline ‘tip’ for all service staff to share. If the service was extra good, leaving an additional cash tip in the room at the end of your stay/meal is a nice gesture but not required. For restaurants, check your bill or ask the staff whether or not a service charge is included. Many restaurants automatically charge anywhere from 10 % to 15%. Tipping rates are similar to what they are in North America. However, it is up to your discretion how much to tip. As far as tipping for diving goes, $10 per tank is customary.

Sunscreen and Bug Spray
Everyone knows to bring sunscreen, but few actually bring enough. You’ll probably require about twice as much as you’d initially expect. Higher SPF, such as SPF 30 is desirable, as is water resistant. Please use biodegradable sunscreen. Conventional sunscreens have been proven to cause long-lasting damage to the reefs and environment. If it’s been raining recently, you’ll want to have insect repellent as there can be mosquitoes and sand fleas at times.
