Turks and Caicos is home to the third largest coral barrier reef in the world, earning it’s reputation as a premier Caribbean diving location. Many renowned diving enthusiasts have rated South Caicos as the top diving destination in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Excellent visibility up to 100 feet provides optimum diving conditions.
Many renown diving enthusiasts have rated Turks and Caicos as one of the top 10 diving destinations in the world. Excellent visibility up to 100 feet in some areas provides optimum diving conditions, and towering underwater sea “walls” make every trip beneath the water’s surface spectacular. Divers also appreciate the normally calm seas to transit to diving locations.
Divers will appreciate the short 5 – 10 minute boat trips to the pristine diving locations directly form the East Bay Resort’s beach. There are no expensive taxi rides or shuttles to diving shops here. No long boat trips over choppy seas.
In winter months, divers even have the opportunity to get close to migrating humpback whales that are making their way through the Caicos Passage. This is truly a scuba diving experience not to be missed! These whales and their cubs are often seen by our guests from their suite balconies.

Sites Minutes Away from East Bay
With warm turquoise waters, moderate currents, and visibility to over 100 feet, South Caicos offers some of the most unspoilt, well-preserved and isolated diving in the world.
There are over 20 dive sites no more than a pleasant 15 minute boat ride away from our beach. Currently, we are working on finding even more sites, meaning that guests will be able to dive unexplored waters in the future.
The Caicos Banks, a network of underwater plateaus, support many of these dive sites. Ranging over 1700 square miles, the banks are surrounded by a vibrant barrier reef system with thousands of species of Caribbean sea life. The banks eventually drop off to what is commonly referred to as the South Caicos Wall, plunging from 35 to over 7,000 feet to the depths of the sea.
East Bay Resort offers several programs for all levels of divers. Whether you’re brand new or a seasoned expert, there is a tour for everyone. East Bay can also provide all PADI courses and certifications.
