Ideal for snorkelling and diving, a vertical coral reef– known as Grand Turk’s world-famous wall, sits just offshore. This “wall” is located just a few minutes away from the Bohio Dive Resort, dropping suddenly from 25 feet (7 meters) to an incredible 7000 feet (2100 meters), and is the perfect viewing ground for catching sight of hundreds of fish species at once.

As a result, Grand Turk’s scuba diving opportunities are some of the best in the Caribbean. Our boats are ready and waiting for you only 1000 feet (300 meters) from the resort, primed to transport you to the spectacular reef that hugs the west coast of the island. Dramatic dive walls, and majestic sea-life at Alien Nation, Mama Nature, Coral Gardens, and The Anchor, are only a short boat ride away. 

Our Snorkel on the Wall boat excursions are suitable for snorkelers of all ability levels and are extremely popular with our guests. During Grand Turk snorkeling excursions, you’ll get the chance to see colorful sponges and coral, an abundance of tropical fish, and you may catch sight of an eagle ray, sting ray, turtle or dolphin.

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.

The Top 3 Sites for Winter Dives https://www.bohioresort.com/the-top-3-sites-for-winter-dives/ https://www.bohioresort.com/the-top-3-sites-for-winter-dives/#respond Mon, 01 Jan 2018 20:36:48 +0000 https://www.bohioresort.com/?p=2818

Read More]]> Whenever someone visits Grand Turk for their first dive trip, they always ask: what are the top three dive sites? The sites that can’t be missed? The site that best embodies what Grand Turk has to offer the diving world?
Picking your favourite dive site is kind of like picking your favourite child: you just can’t do it. But we can give you a top three, so without further ado here is our list of the Top 3 Dive Sites off Grand Turk:

McDonalds
North-west of Grand Turk, McDonalds is one of our favourites at Bohio, and gets its name from some magnificent coral arches over the lip of the sandy slopes. Swimming through the arches you come out the other side overlooking the cobalt blue abyssal depths.

The Anchor

The Anchor is located to the west of Grand Turk’s middle section, and, you guessed it, is a huge, old anchor adorned with coral and sponges. We’re not quite sure how old it is, but it appears to be over 100 years old with design consistent with that of an old British warship.

 

The Aquarium

Within the Columbus National Marine Park, The Aquarium is the furthermost northern dive site just off Grand Turk. The site takes its name from the overwhelming abundance of wildlife at the spot. Lush corals and a reef of spur and coral groove formations make this spot especially unique.

 

BONUS: Black Forest

Even the name ‘Black Forest’ evokes the imagination, but what makes this site truly unique is how the undercut wall creates a massive shadow along its face, ‘tricking’ Black Coral into growing in shallow waters rather than deep in the depths. Bring a flashlight to really see the colours.
If you want more detailed descriptions of these dives, check out our dive sites. We’ll see you in Grand Turk!

Let us take you to a Robinson Crusoe-style island for an afternoon of adventure and fun. Gibbs Cay is an uninhabited island lying just off of Grand Turk’s southeast tip and is an ideal location for snorkeling, photography, and beachcombing.

After loading the boat with snorkeling gear and your favorite beverages, we cruise along Grand Turk’s coastline where you can enjoy the best of the waterside views of this enchanting Caribbean island.

On the way, you can join the local dive masters free-diving for conch, and later they will show you how to extract it from its shell and transform it into a mouthwatering conch ceviche. For the adventurous, you can try the ‘Conch Worm’ — allegedly nature’s Viagra!

Friendly Sting Rays accustomed to people visiting this location play in the shallow waters here. You are welcome to snorkel with them and experience their beauty close-up. This is a photographer’s paradise, as Eagle Rays, barracuda and Lemon Sharks are also known to visit this spot.

Hike over to the other side of Gibbs Cay to enjoy spectacular views out across the Atlantic Ocean. Beachcombers can explore the jetsam and flotsam that washes up on this secluded beach.

Don’t miss out on this exciting excursion while staying at Bohio Dive Resort.
