grand turk – Bohio Dive Resort Grand Turk Hotels in Turks and Caicos Mon, 12 Mar 2018 19:54:53 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Kaleidoscope of Colors Fri, 05 Jan 2018 19:02:00 +0000






























Have you ever been on a Grand Turk night dive?

We don’t mean diving into the cold, dark depths with a flashlight – we mean diving into a sea of bioluminescence, the surrounding kaleidoscope of sea life lighting the night with phosphorescent illumination.

There’s nothing like it. And if you’ve never been (or are only now just finding out), we have to say: this is one life experience that needs to be on every bucket list, especially if you’re a diver!

Our instructors can take you on one of these magical journeys through a Caribbean Sea of stars. Sometimes you need a guide to take you through this unique space, like on The Wall, a drop off from a depth of 25 feet to 7000 feet in a heartbeat, just a stone’s throw away from Pillory Beach.

It’s one thing to experience Grand Turk by day; it’s quite another to experience it by night. We can’t recommend it enough.

EMANCIPATION DAY Tue, 01 Aug 2017 17:19:26 +0000

Read More]]> Emancipation Day is cause for celebration.

We celebrate the day that the slaves in the Turks and Caicos Islands were declared free people, announced from the Oddfellows Lodge on Grand Turk in 1834.

The Slavery Abolition Act of 1833 was an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom abolishing slavery throughout the British Empire, read in the House of Commons in July 1833, receiving Royal Assent the following month, and coming into force the following year on August 1.

Today we commemorate the emancipation of slaved peoples.

GRAND TURK’S TOP CHOICE Fri, 21 Jul 2017 17:17:11 +0000


When it comes to finding a hotel on Grand Turk, there’s no place like Bohio – that’s why we are currently the #1 choice among TripAdvisor travelers!

In fact, earlier this year we earned our seventh-consecutive TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, and we couldn’t be more proud.

But that’s not all! One of our resident dive masters, Jesse Bueckert, single-handedly certifies more divers than any other operation on the island. He has earned the Elite Instructor Award from PADI the last two years in a row!

Add the Guanahani Restaurant and the Ike & Donkey Beach Bar and you have a recipe for the best choice for diving or any kind of vacation on Grand Turk.

Without a doubt, Bohio Dive Resort is Grand Turk’s top choice!

Grand Turk Travel Keeps Getting Better Fri, 10 Mar 2017 19:32:51 +0000

Read More]]> The skies above Grand Turk are spectacular, but these days we use them for more than just beautiful views – they are also the best way to get to and from the Turks and Caicos Islands.

We have WestJet offering direct flights from Toronto to Provo (Providenciales) and even better regional connectivity between islands than we’ve ever had before. If you’re Canadian and wishing it was easier to escape to Grand Turk for the ultimate dive vacation, your wish has been granted!

Wake up to the sound of snow falling, enjoy some Tim Hortons on the way to the Pearson International. A quick flight to Provo and a short hop to Grand Turk later and you’re sipping ice cold drinks on Pillory Beach at the best bar in TCI: the Ike and Donkey Beach Bar.

Of course, it’s not just Canadians who get direct flights to Provo. American Airlines, Delta, United, British Airways, and many more – the choice is yours!

It’s hard to believe that slavery was still around as recently as under 200 years ago. It’s a dark part of our history – of world history – but it is also one we should remember and acknowledge, which is why each year we celebrate Emancipation Day.

It may surprise or pain you to learn this, but slavery is still alive and well throughout other parts of the world. There are actually more slaves today than there have ever been at any point in history, with 29.8 million people living in modern slavery today.

We have come so far, and yet we still have so much further to go. Be thankful for the progress we have made, but do not forget that there is more still yet to come.

“My dad is my hero.” – Harry Connick Jr.

Father’s Day is the time of the year where we celebrate not just our own fathers, but fathers everywhere. At Bohio, we want to ensure only the best time when it comes to your dad’s getaway to a tropical wonderland.

We specialize in world-class diving, and are located in Grand Turk, one of the best diving spots on earth. If your father is a diver, this is the place for him. If he’s not a diver, this a great place to start! We happily welcome beginners and show them the ropes to get them quickly and safely certified for diving adventure.

Even if dad isn’t a diver (or shows no interest in diving), Bohio has everything he and his friends could ever want in a Caribbean excursion. Everything from the white sand beaches, snorkeling, the sights, and dining are top-notch—and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Treat your father right this time around and drop us a line about booking him an awesome trip he won’t soon forget.
