Staff Report: Bridget - The Turks & Caicos and Bahamas Trip Report

Having often been asked about the Turks and Caicos islands by clients I was delighted when the opportunity came up for me to visit the islands myself so I could really get some first hand knowledge of the hotels and dive sites. The Turks and Caicos Islands are virtually undiscovered. Providenciales is one of the 49 islands that comprise the British Crown Colony of Turks and Caicos.

Seven of us set off on the weekly British Airways flight from Heathrow to Providenciales (Provo) which touches down in Nassau Bahamas. The great thing about this flight is that you are allowed a massive baggage allowance, 2 bags each weighing up to 23kg PLUS a dive bag weighing up to 23kg, which meant for once I could go mad and take my full dive kit plus all the clothes and toiletries I normally have to leave behind. One word of advice, make sure you take either an international fitting regulator or a DIN adaptor as these seem to be fairly scarce at the dive centres I visited...
