If you're ready to dive, you can check with Bohio Resort Diving. A perk of staying at Bohio is the option to participate in daily open water scuba dives with this on-site dive shop that is only available to guests. Just 300 yards off shore of the hotel's beach are some of the most spectacular underwater sites in the area, and as part of the all-inclusive package guests won't have to make arrangements with a third party to see them. They are located within northwestern Grand Turk.
Another good option is Oasis Divers. After the success of this shop in the years after they first opened in 1996, this second location became necessary. Regardless of your current skill level, Oasis will work to get you trained up and out on an open water dive before the end of your vacation. You can call them at (649) 946-1128.
