Grand Turk is one of the top scuba diving locations in the world and the most beautiful blue water you can imagine surrounds the island. Diving here is an unforgettable adventure and suitable for any diver from novice to expert. The dive sites are generally calm, hardly any current, crystal clear and warm, the turquoise blue turns a deep dark blue just a few hundred yards from shore where the wall drops. Most of the dive sites are on the west side of the island and only a few minutes from the beach by dive boat. A typical dive starts in just 30 feet of water and the reef gently slopes until it reaches about 40 feet then the diver is greeted by the vista of a spectacular wall plunging to the depths. Local dive operators will lead groups or individuals and every diver can cruise the wall at the depth they feel comfortable before a leisurely return to the boat over shallow reefs covered with life. Visibility averages 100 feet and the water temperature ranges from 82°-84° in the summer to 74°-78° in the winter. “McDonalds” dive site located about 800 meters out right in front of Villa Azul was awarded the best wall dive in the Caribbean by Scuba Dive Magazine a few years ago.
