“Perfect Diving experience”
Review of Grand Turk Diving

Grand Turk Diving
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

My husband and I did 4 dives + 1 snorkel adventure. 2 Dives were with Smitty - a 33 year seasoned professional who knows the good spots and keeps a keen eye on his guests; the other 2 dives were with Jason. He took us to The Library off the wall and Coral Canyon. Both were incredible experiences. Our snorkel adventure was led by KJ and Smitty's Grandson (I can't remember his name). We went to three locations - Gibbs Key for swimming with the sting rays (incredible) + 2 snorkel spots and a conch dive. At one Snorkel spot, we experienced a pod of about 20 squid. VERY cool and unusual. These guys are the best and Chris in the office not only takes great care of your diving tour admin, she also knows a great deal about the island in general - places to go, see, eat, walk, etc. She also takes care of a lot of the dogs on the island and you will find many of them lounging around the yard and in her office as her support staff. Stop and give them a tummy rub. You will both enjoy it!

Thank William E

We arranged this trip with our brother; who is paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair. He had never been snorkeling before. My husband and I wanted to dive; while he and his wife snorkeled. Al was so helpful in communicating before the trip to arrange everything so we could get our brother on this boat. Other dive companies would not consent to take our brother snorkeling on their boat. The dive master and boat captain and other crew member were most helpful and Mike had a great experience feeling free in the water; and seeing things he had never seen before. We enjoyed the dive sites we went to also. I would highly recommend this company if you go to Grand Turk!

We spent a week and did 12 dives and a whale watching tour with Grand Turk Diving and had an excellent experience all around. Both of us have between 125-140 dives each, so we’ve been to several shops over the years. We could not imagine having a better experience with another shop! When we come back to Grand Turk, we will dive with them and no one else.

We were able to dive with Smitty, Jason, J.J., K.J., and Belchino. Chris (front office) was awesome, so friendly and had great recommendations for the island. The level of service is top-notch. Boutique service at regular/affordable prices! The boats are clean and have all the safety equipment needed. They make sure we had fun and stayed safe. While we were there, we dived with people of all capabilities and they were respectful of each level of ability, offering each of us a fun diving opportunity.

They have a complete array of equipment, so if you’re coming in on a ship, you don’t need to worry bringing all your stuff. They work with a lot of cruise ships, so you’ll have great dives and still make it back in time! They also do snorkeling with cruise ships, although they are on different boats than the divers.

The shop rents out bikes, which we took advantage of since we were staying on the island for 9 days. The last day, we wanted to rent a golf cart and Chris took care of everything for us! She is amazing <3

The highlight of our week was hearing the whale’s songs under water. Did not see them while diving (saw some of the whale watching tour), but having their song caught on our Go-Pro was amazing! Lots of vibrant sea life and corals. Saw a lot of fish on our list, including a Top Hat (one of may favs and elusive finds!)

Everyone enjoys their job, it’s obvious! There was a lot of laughter, a lot of stories, and many, many smiles! I’m sure I’ve forgotten something, but if you’re considering snorkeling or diving when you visit Grand Turk whether it’s for a day or a week, don’t look any further than Grand Turk Diving. Safety, fun, and excellence in service makes them the only place you need to look at!

We had an absolute blast diving with GT Diving. Jason and JJ are helpful and hilarious. The reef wall was fascinating and full of life, including a bunch of sting rays. Blue Tang Clan 4 life!
