If you are a scuba diver, we’re pleased to tell you that the waters are just as beautiful below the surface too. Divers vacationing in Provo have an opportunity to visit some of the most dramatic wall dives in the entire Caribbean/Atlantic region.
Imagine diving at 40’ in crystal clear water, over nothing but blue, until all disappears into the depths. This is wall diving, and in Provo, all of the wall dive sites are fantastic! With warm, clear water and little in the way of currents, the diving around Provo can accommodate all diver levels.
Dive Sites in Grace Bay are close by and are what people refer to as a mini wall. Under the boat, expect to descend into depths between 25 – 30ft with spur and groove coral formations and lots of nooks and crannies for creatures to hide in. The wall slopes down to about 110’, where it gives way to a broad sandy plateau before the wall falls again into the abyss.
The more dramatic wall dives where the bottom drops steeply away just under the boat are North West Point, West Caicos, and French Cay. All these areas are part of a continuous barrier reef protecting the islands, and marine life is abundant everywhere all along the reef. Everyday encounters include sharks, turtles, eagle rays, schooling fish, and lucky divers regularly experience the thrill of riding home after an eventful day of diving with dolphins playing in the boat’s wake.
Plan Your Adventure
Whether a dive traveler or a “once-a-year-on-vacation” diver, Dive Provo staff do their utmost to ensure guests have a safe, quality experience.
Dive Provo’s regular dive schedule includes a 2-tank morning boat dive daily. There are also single tank boat dives to Grace Bay in the afternoons and 3-tank full-day trips once a week. If you want something exceptional, private charters are also available.
If it is a while since you have been in the water or are a little apprehensive, a quick pool refresher the day before your planned dive is recommended and easily arranged. Quickly going over the basics, you learned on your certification course and practicing these skills in the pool significantly increases the success and enjoyment of your dives.
If you are not yet a diver, you can experience the wonders of the underwater world by taking a Resort Course. Supervised by experienced, qualified staff, for many people, this memorable excursion is the highlight of their vacation.
