Caribbean Scuba Diving

Caribbean Scuba Diving

No matter how spectacular the land, to scuba divers, the world of reefs, wrecks and rock formations hidden beneath the transparent Caribbean waters far surpasses the natural beauty ashore. Lured by the changing scenery undersea, divers at all skill levels tour the region in search of new experiences. Caribbean dive sites are so dazzling and diverse that many enthusiasts become scuba tourists who "collect" destinations and dives.


Much to the divers' delight, environmental awareness has sparked concern for the preservation of sea life in over-dived areas-- and fostered the development of marine parks and a host of new dive sites.

Campaigns to prevent reef damage and save endangered species discourage or prohibit collecting specimens, but the thrill of underwater exploration is nonetheless present -- and discovering buried "treasure" is always a possibility.

Dive vacation values can be found at some all-inclusive resorts and in standard hotel packages priced to include dives and equipment.
Resorts large and small provide (or will arrange) beginning scuba instruction -- a basic "resort course" -- and, following it, an intensified "Y" course, combining swimming pool and open water instruction, for PADI (Professional Association of Dive Instructors) certification.
Resorts and dive shops offer a menu of regularly scheduled day and night dive excursions with escort/instructors who know the local waters and are thoroughly schooled in emergency procedures.

As a safety precaution, certified divers are required to present credentials to dive operators for equipment rental and tank refills.

Turks and Caicos Diving & Marine Life

Marine life is varied and beautiful and can be enjoyed by snorkellers and sailors as well as scuba divers. Colourful fish and grouper can be seen on the coral and close to the shore there are green and loggerhead turtles and manta and spotted eagle rays. Because there is no soil run off from the islands, water visibility is excellent.
