Provo Turtle Divers

Art Pickering, the owner and main operator of Provo Turtle Divers, is the man who discovered scuba diving in Turks and Caicos to the rest of the world in the late 1960s, early 1970s. Not only that, but he personally named most of the dive sites that are frequented today. This dive center remains the oldest on the island, and certainly the one that is most trusted.
