Grand Turk is a great place to take a beach break right off the ship, as my wife and daughter did. I got to go scuba diving on a ship excursion, which was excellent, barring some equipment issues -- next time, I'm bringing my own regulator; mine had a leaky o-ring and a faulty depth gauge, and I saw another o-ring leaking on another diver, while one man on our excursion had his pressure gauge fail, resulting in an emergency ascent with his dive buddy's octo! Dive was 2 sites, one 70', one 55', got to see "the wall" where the bottom rapidly drops to 7,000'. Plenty of sea life -- turtles, fish, corals, etc. Our divemaster said that a hammerhead had been spotted in the area a week before, and one diver said he saw a black tip shark while diving on this trip.

Diving in Grand Turk: We dove with Oasys Divers through Carnival. We dove with them in 2014 and were happy to dive with them again. I usually dive on my own and not with the cruise ship. But, I got an email from Carnival offering 20% off any excursion in Grand Turk. I jumped on it. The walk to the end of the pier was not too long, even taking into consideration that were carrying all of our dive equipment. We waited at the meeting spot until the divers came to pick us up. We walked along the beach to the dive boat. Once we were on the dive boat we went to the dive shop where everyone got their dive gear. We bring our own gear so we swam in the ocean while everyone else got their gear. We were all set and ready to go while everyone else was trying to set up their equipment at the same time. We got in to 2 groups of about people. It was a large group, but then again we went with the cruise excursions. I love diving the wall in Grand Turk. It’s just awesome. We had a great dive. The crew was great. After the dive we went back to the dive shop. We swam in the ocean while everyone else turned in their equipment. The they took us back to the pier and dropped us off. The walk back was not too bad. Grand Turk is beautiful and a great place to dive. Read Less

Great place to dive.
Great place to dive. Oasis dive was the dive company. They never dissapoint. plenty of wildlife to see and it's right off the beach. Boat ride is less than 5 min. For those of us that get a little seasick this is great.

GReat dive in beautiful water. I resented the dive boat taking us back to shore between dives so they could switch out the empty air tanks to be ready for the next group of divers in the morning. They are burning my dive time. COuld have easily stayed underwater an extra 10 minutes on the tank of air I had left but they insisted we get going ( They had another drive group waiting) I say change tanks on the boat in their own time. Some of the divers even jumped off the boat to help carry the tanks back up to the dive shop so someone there could start refilling them. This is wrong... Read Less

Turks and Caicos -- we went diving again, but because the ship cancelled the diving trips, we got on the Internet once onboard and joined Blue Water Drivers for a 2 tank dive to "The Wall". One of the best places in the world. No question. It is amazing to get to places on the Island using a taxi -- it is generally $5 - $6 per person each way. A lot of people on the boat just spent the day in Margaritaville in the port...it was a spring break party to say the least. After a 2 tank dive, it was definitely nice to get a good margarita before getting back on the ship. Read Less
