Diving with Reef Divers
East Bay Resort’s dive centre, Reef Divers South Caicos, is the only on-site PADI dive shop in South Caicos and is located minutes from world-class dive and snorkel sites. Reef Divers South Caicos is operated by a team of PADI and SSI certified dive professionals and has been providing memorable diving adventures for more than 25 years. A full inventory of Scubapro rental dive equipment is offered and nitrox is also available. Although daily boat diving itineraries focus primarily on the Admiral Cockburn National Park and surrounding areas, trips can also be organised to Grand Turk and East Caicos.
Reef Divers South Caicos operate a valet-style service that takes the hard work out of your diving experience by handling the heavy lifting and maintenance of your dive gear - from your first dive through to your last. The team will happily rinse, dry, and store your equipment daily, ensuring it’s ready and waiting for you the next day. The only finger you’ll have to lift is the one to point out your gear as you relax in the boat, ready to go diving. In addition to daily boat scuba diving trips and snorkeling excursions complete PADI and SSI dive instruction programs are also available.
