The Turks and Caicos Islands are comprised of two island groups that are separated by the Columbus Passage, which has a depth of over 7,000 feet. In addition, the islands are home to alluring turquoise waters with a thriving coral reef ecosystem. Thanks to the myriad of breathtaking walls or wrecks here, scuba diving has been one of the most popular tourist activities. At The Turks and Caicos company, we can organize scuba diving trips for our clients.
