Less than 39 miles south of the Bahamas lay the island chain of Turks & Caicos. Although close geographically, there is a world of difference between these two island chains – both below the water and above! Why go Scuba Diving and Snorkeling in the Bahamas when you can dive Turks & Caicos?
The surrounding waters of Turks & Caicos far exceed the best scuba diving in the Bahamas. The seas surrounding Turks & Caicos (84 to 85 degrees) are typically 5 degrees warmer than
most waters in the Bahamas, and our typical visibility of over 100 feet is better than the waters of the Bahamas. When scuba diving in the Bahamas you are diving true Atlantic Ocean waters, whereas Turks & Caicos’ waters more closely emulate the warm waters of the Caribbean.
Many people go scuba diving in the Bahamas for shark diving. Although there is one famous dive operator who has virtually domesticated some of his indigenous reef shark, our Turks & Caicos dive sites exemplify true shark diving. We see Caribbean reef shark on approximately 80% of our dives (there are no guarantees in nature, but read our testimonials for validation).
