Stayed on Grand Turk. Almost no current on Caribean side of the island, waters was 76-78F in April. Have whales in March. Island is somewhat primative. Currently 3 hotels. Largest had 20 rooms. We stayed on north west side of island so the wall dives were only 5-10 minutes away by boat. We were usually the only group diving and made for a very relaxing dive vacation. Typical day was up by 8, boat left around 9 or whenever we were ready... Dive 1 a wall dive to 80-100 feet for 20 minutes then top of reef for 20 minutes, then roam around small coral heads in the shallows till air ran out. Back to the resort for a snack and 1 hour interval. Then repeat for dive 2. A few days we squeezed in shore dives in the afternoon and one night dive. Most days we would spend the afternoon exploring the island, take a break to watch the sunset, then off to dinner. About 2000 people live on the island and approximately 30 donkeys and a number of dogs roam around the island.
