The alluring turquoise waters of the Turks and Caicos Islands feature a vast, thriving coral reef ecosystem and lots of walls. The main attraction here is diving. With protected reefs dropping well past recreational dive limits just offshore, it’s easy to see why this is a diver’s paradise.
Whether you’re looking for breathtaking walls or wrecks, scuba diving in the Turks and Caicos is both accessible and impressive. Just south of the Bahamas, the Turks and Caicos are 40 islands and cays, but just eight are inhabited.
The deep passage between the islands is a water highway for migrating fish, rays, turtles, dolphins and humpback whales from January through March.
Diving in the Caribbean is extremely pleasant year-round. January through March offer the best opportunities to dive with migrating rays, turtles, dolphins and humpback whales.
