Help-recommend stay provo only or also turks other caicos??

We are new to the island and are putting our trip together now. We have a 5 night package to Seven Stars. Avid divers and are open to an island hop to Turks or other parts of Caicos? Thoughts, suggestions hotel deals?? Looking forward to great diving and relaxing on beautiful beaches. THANKS!

It should probably read we are open to island hop to other parts of Turks& Caicos. As the islands and Cays are all part of Turks and Caicos.

There is ferry service from Provo to North and Middle Caicos, or you can fly to Grand Turk or Salt Cay

As Keater mentioned, there is a boat ferry that will get you to North (and from there to Middle) Caicos. To get to Grand Turk requires a flight, and there is the rub, I believe. Unless things have changed very recently, divers are cautioned to not fly within, I believe, 24 hours of diving. If you adhere to this, you would have to skip diving the day before going to Grand Turk. So it makes more sense to me to plan on visiting North/Middle Caicos, perhaps on that last day on-island when you really shouldn't be diving anyway.

It depends on the altitude of the airplane but you are right, that may be a consideration. I am wondering if there are any diving enthusiasts who have an opinion about the quality of diving in one part of the islands over another so as to make us changing hotels and locations worth it? Otherwise, we can extend at same hotel.

Thank you. We appreciate the tips!!

5 nights is not enough for you to island hop.

Ahh, makes more sense. Diving is great on Grand Turk, you mit want to check out Osprey Hotel, best place to stay on GT. Or consider Salt Cay, quirky but fun and stunning beach. Check out Castaway villa.
