North West Point

Provo, Turks & Caicos Diving Holidays

All mooring sites, walls starting from 30 to 45 ft and are used by all the dive operators and larger resorts on the island. We dive there only with our smaller boat Hercules, departing from Turtle Cove marina. We prefer diving better quality and less crowded walls of West Caicos, French cay and all the South walls.
