Grand Turk is part of the Turks & Caicos Islands that lie along the southern tip of the Bahamas. Their co-ordinates are approximately 22°N and 72°W. Grand Turk itself stays sheltered from the heavy currents to be found in this part of the world and visibility while diving is excellent all year round. In the summer Grand Turk is a gathering place for gentle manta rays. Divers in Grand Turk can enjoy sponge covered walls and corals starting at 10m and plunging down over 2000m.
