Grand Turk boasts a dry and sunny, marine-tropical climate, with consistently hot temperatures throughout the year. Summertime temperatures can reach up to 33 °C (91 °F) and winter nighttime temperatures rarely fall below 18 °C (64 °F) – that’s warm.
So it’s good news that Grand Turk is a diver’s paradise and a snorkeler’s paradise and a beach bum’s paradise too. There are plenty of ways to cool down.
The best in diving
During an interview with Kelly Shanahan, one of Bohio Dive Resort’s owners, we asked her why Grand Turk was such a special place for divers.
“Divers from all over the world visit Grand Turk to experience our reef system, within which you will find a very unique diving spot – The Wall, which descends to 7000 feet (2134 meters). The reef system is only 100 feet (300 meters) from our door and reachable in less than five minutes by boat, making us a perfect dive spot for guests who don’t enjoy long bumpy boat rides. We also pride ourselves on giving guests a dive holiday that does not feel like boot camp. Our dive staff is courteous, professional, and fun. Guests return to Bohio Dive Resort year after year, not only for the ambience, food, and beaches, but because the diving is spectacular.”
The reef attracts a huge array of exotic fish species such as eagle rays (Myliobatidae) and sea cucumbers (Holothuroidea). Bohio Dive Resort is also located here, the perfect place to relax before exploring the wonders of Grand Turk’s underwater paradise. Dramatic dive walls, and majestic sea-life are only a short boat ride away — these include Alien Nation, Mama Nature, Coral Gardens and The Anchor.
For snorkelers, a walk-in dive to a seascape of purple gorgonians sergeant majors, green parrotfish and the long-nosed trumpet fish , is just a few steps out from the shoreline. Other marine life which you will come across includes the ominous-looking green moray and a visiting hawksbill turtle or two.
Snorkelers can learn about the various creatures camouflaged within the reef, the importance of sea-grass beds and the ways that parrotfish contribute to the environment.
And remember, it’s not only the weather that is hot! Our on-site chefs cook up some hot dishes to tease your taste buds at Bohio’s Guanahani Restaurant too.
