There’s no time like the present to learn to dive or advance your diving skills.

At Bohio we certify the most divers on Grand Turk. As a PADI facility (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) we cater to all levels of experience with expert instruction. Not to mention that our team happens to include a PADI Elite divemaster—Jesse Bueckert—who is recognized for the large number of divers he has certified!

A big part of diving with Bohio is our small group sizes. Rather than getting lost in a group, we never have more than 8 divers to a divemaster. This is to ensure you receive a personalized learning experience.

From the Discover Scuba Diving course geared at those looking to try diving for the first time to night diving and underwater navigation, the possibilities for underwater exploration are endless.

With world class diving just beyond our shores, what are you waiting for?

Bohio means “home” in the language of the island’s earliest visitors. We hold the meaning of being at home at the center of everything we do—we want you to relax and unwind, and leave your cares behind.

Tom and Ginny who oversee the resort left busy professional lives for a slower pace, and their enjoyment of what they do spills into Bohio’s barefoot atmosphere. We like to know everyone on a first name basis. Our guests are more than just customers, but an extension of us.

If you’re traveling alone you’ll still be among friends at our beach bar, pool and other common areas. For quiet time, enjoy the sanctuary of your room with views of Pillory Beach. And if you’re returning from a day of adventure above or below water, let us be the first to welcome you home.

Sit on the beach, listen to the waves, just breathe. You’re among family.

A Spectacle of Nature: The Annual Whale Migration https://www.bohioresort.com/a-spectacle-of-nature-the-annual-whale-migration/ https://www.bohioresort.com/a-spectacle-of-nature-the-annual-whale-migration/#respond Thu, 01 Feb 2018 16:31:44 +0000 https://www.bohioresort.com/?p=2928

Every year from February to April nature puts on a spectacular show just off Bohio’s shore— the North Atlantic Humpback Whale migration.

From February through to April whales from regions of Canada, New England, Iceland and more head to the warmer waters of the Caribbean. It is here that they give birth to their calves and mate. Their migratory travel provides the extraordinary opportunity to watch countless whales as they pass through the channel near Grand Turk and Salt Cay. And as an added bonus humpbacks stay near the surface of the water during migration, making them way more visible than at other times of year.

Did you know that the North Atlantic Humpback Whale can weigh as much as 80,000 lbs (36,000 kgs) and can be as long as 60 ft (18 m)? Their sheer size is something to see, let alone their tendency to breech!

The whales draw travelers from all over the globe. With only a few weeks left in the migration, hurry and take advantage of the rooms we still have available to come and see the nature show for yourself.

USA Today Places Grand Turk “Wall” in Their 10 Best https://www.bohioresort.com/the-wall/ https://www.bohioresort.com/the-wall/#respond Sat, 20 Jan 2018 19:04:09 +0000 https://www.bohioresort.com/?p=2719

There’s no shortage of exceptional diving around Grand Turk, and the Grand Turk Wall is now getting international recognition. Voted #10 in the category Best Caribbean Dive Sites by USA Today 10 Best, the Wall plunges from 30 feet to 7000 feet!

So what can you expect to see when diving the Wall? Aside from witnessing the spectacular drop off there is a full spectrum of marine life. Not only will you see a wide variety sponges and corals, but there are tropical fish, groupers, and large pelagic fish. You may also catch site of reef sharks, eagle rays, sea turtles and nurse sharks.

Divers travel from all over to explore the Wall for themselves, so it comes as no surprise that the “Grand Canyon of the Caribbean” is earning its place among the best dive sites. An extra bonus? A lot of the sea life is close to the surface, meaning you don’t have to be a diver to see it for yourself—the Wall can be seen snorkeling, too!

With expert dive guides and a fully-equipped on-site dive shop for all your equipment needs, we would love to take you there.

An Update From Bohio https://www.bohioresort.com/an-update-from-bohio/ https://www.bohioresort.com/an-update-from-bohio/#respond Wed, 10 Jan 2018 21:29:15 +0000 https://www.bohioresort.com/?p=2846

As you are probably aware, this past September Grand Turk experienced two major hurricanes in close succession. This led to a brief closure of our resort to allow repairs of the airport, island infrastructure and our own facilities. The whole community has pulled together, and it’s our pleasure to welcome back holidaymakers, beach lovers and divers. The resort’s beachfront rooms have been refurbished, the Ike & Donkey Beach Bar remains the island’s local hot spot, and Chef Jorika continues to dazzle guests with her culinary creations.

However, as we continue to upgrade the resort, we would like to make you aware of a few repairs that are still ongoing.

Our swimming pool is not currently operational, though it has a targeted opening date of early February.  Meanwhile, the spectacular Caribbean sea remains open! Our shallow beach front is sheltered and perfect for swimming, paddling and all PADI open water preparation.

Additionally, the government has not yet restored internet service on Grand Turk, but we do have cell phone service, and can offer hotspots for critical communication. The cable TV is also down, although the power lines are up and running. Local cable channels may be no great loss, but please don’t rely on your streaming media services while you are with us. 

Our dive shop is still in the process of being renovated, but our dive boat and operation is in full service, and the storms have not damaged our beautiful reefs and dive sites.

We hope that you will find all the important ingredients of your vacation more than adequately catered for, indeed we hope that you will enjoy taking the opportunity to wind down and disconnect for a while, grabbing a book and a Bambarra Rum and heading to the beach.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if there is anything further we can assist with, and thank you again for your continued support as our community mends, heals and gets back to what we do best.

With warmest island regards,

The Bohio Family

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.
