Scuba: With its crystal clear warm waters, Provo has some of the best scuba diving in the world. From coral gardens to walls, there are many sites to explore within a 10-minute boat ride from shore. There are a number of experienced dive operators on the island offering excursions.
Snorkeling: There is great snorkeling right outside your villa in Sapodilla Bay. Rays, sea turtles, starfish, crabs, and lobsters are frequently spotted. As you face the ocean, snorkel along the Iron Shore (rocky outcropping) to your right to catch sight of our underwater denizens. For colorful tropical fish, take a boat day trip or make the short drive to Coral Gardens on Grace Bay, where a large coral head is only 10 feet from shore, and easily accessible by snorkelers of all ages and abilities.
Boat Trips and Rentals: How about a boat picking you up for a fantastic day trip right in front of your villa? Ocean Outback will do just that, and take you to explore secluded beaches, see a pirate cave, snorkel, and enjoy a beach BBQ lunch. Or if you prefer sailing, call on Sail Provo. There is also a glass bottom submarine operated by Caicos Tours called the Undersea Explorer, offering trips from Turtle Cove Marina to explore the reefs and sea life in Grace Bay. Or be your own captain and rent a 13’ or 24’ boat from Ocean Outback that can be dropped off for you right in front of the villa.
Fishing: Provo has some of the best fishing in the Caribbean. From deep sea to reef to bone fishing, there are lots of choices for anglers of all ages and skill level.
