Very beautiful reef. Could have spent more time. Lots of fish activity to watch. Coral reef is just teaming with life.

MacDonalds dive site is a good starting point. Great sandy area under the boat sloping to a nice wall. This site never disappoints.

A fantastic dive site, if you are on Grand Turk and diving I would recommend this site, however in my opinion don't be upset if you cant get there as all the sites are great.

Great option for view the reff and then drop over onto the Wall. Easy dive, small dive party, relaxed Divemaster kept good supervision and pointed out many "small" details and spectacular views.

This is a dive site where a swim through purportedly looks like the golden arches. That might be a little creative, but the dive is excellent. Don't expect as many sharks and big fish like off West Caicos and French Cay, but a very good.
