My first impression of my first dive in the Turks and Caicos was this site. I had heard that Caribbean diving was inferior. However, I thought the diving here was on a par with the Red Sea. The viz, the corals, the marine life were all as profuse.
This site is a long boat ride away from Provo. We dived with Art Pickering and he has a fine and comfortable boat. Fast too. They trawled lines hoping to catch a Marlin (but didn't). An ever-full cooler and pleasant company passed the 40 or so minutes it took to get there.
West Caicos is well worth the journey. Being remote and undived it is pristine.
We dropped into an Eagle Ray and a turtle that the local guide held so I could photograph. I asked him not too. In the end I pretended to take the shot just to make him let go. Actually, it came out alright but I could't show it! You are not supposed to hold Turtles, they breath air and get very stressed. Just imagine your out of air situation!
Anyway, I also had a loopy grouper who kept banging into my dome port. Must have fell in love with his (her?) own reflection.
There was a large barracuda under the boat to finish my film on.
Great dive. How many times can you say that!

2 minutes of Photoshop to give it the "fish out of water" look I had in my mind.
