Hop a liveaboard diving boat in Turks & Caicos, and you’ll dive in pristine waters famous for their spectacular walls filled with great macro life.
Located 575 miles southeast of Miami, the idyllic islands of the Turks & Caicos are surrounded by turquoise waters containing more than 1,000 square miles of coral reef. A Mecca for divers from all over the world, the Turks & Caicos Islands are known for their expansive underwater visibility, high-voltage wall dives and the profusion of marine life of all sizes. Low annual rainfall and reliable ocean currents contribute to the remarkable visibility and provide nutrients for the many large pelagics common in these waters. Caribbean reef sharks are common, as are spotted eagle rays, jacks, grouper and turtles. Also spotted on a frequent basis are blacktips, tiger sharks, hammerheads and manta rays.
Luxurious liveaboard dive boats offer guests a week of thrilling wall diving along the coasts of Providenciales, West Caicos and French Caye. Diving liveaboards depart from either Providenciales, Grand Turk or Puerto Plata. Liveaboard diving allows divers to explore black coral species, the reef sharks of Provo’s Shark Hotel, deep-water gorgonians and spotted eagle rays, along with a multitude of other dive sites along the region’s plunging walls.
