North Caicos is part of the group of islands that makes up the Turks and Caicos Islands. With 8 main islands and lots of tiny islands, North Caicos is located 12miles northeast of Provo so easily accessible.

Located at the southern tip of the Bahamas most people see these islands as being located in the Caribbean Sea they are actually part of the Atlantic Ocean but this doesn’t affect the beautiful sunshine and warm waters!

The Turks and Caicos are surrounded by an extensive coral reef system which provides some excellent dive sites and marine life. Although often overlooked for more popular or well known dive destinations, this may be to the islands advantage as this means the dive sites aren’t super busy every day, and it is perfect for those who want to escape the stress and busyness of a crowded city.

Diving

Turks and Caicos is one of the few destinations in the world where you can have the chance of swimming with Humpback Whales. These whales pass by from January to March on their migration to Silver Banks in the Dominican Republic to mate and calve. As well as memorable whale encounters, the waters around Provo also offer the chance to swim with dolphins. One Bottlenose dolphin in particular named “Jojo” is a famous resident of these waters since the 1980’s. Jojo is wild but very friendly, frequently visiting divers and seems to really enjoy human interaction.
