There’s no better place in the world to learn to scuba dive than here, the gorgeous Turks and Caicos. With a Big Blue Collective certified instructor to help you make the most of your time in the water, you’ll soon feel like an expert- all you need to do is take that first step!

Everyone should learn to scuba dive

Here at the Big Blue Collective, we firmly believe everyone should learn to scuba dive. Not only is it a magnificent holiday skill to have, that will serve you well at a wealth of destinations across the world, but it opens you up to vistas and parts of the world you will never otherwise get to explore. 

Each dive is an adventure- and one where you learn to be calmly in control. Because troubleshooting and staying calm is a key part of learning to scuba dive, you also boost your own confidence, both in and out of the water.

Plus, of course, it’s a way to bond with the people around you. Diving is a global sport, and an excellent common ground to break the ice. Divers love to chat, share tips and experiences, reminisce- and, of course, plan their next big adventure too! After all, when you’ve visited the last undiscovered frontier, it’s hard not to have those experiences resonate with you- wrecks from a different time, walls that plunge into the dark abyss of water, coral reefs teeming with vibrant neon life. It’s a whole new world for the senses. 

Why learn to scuba dive in the Turks and Caicos

We talk about the clement weather conditions in the TCI a lot- but they’re well worth mentioning! Here you find steady trade winds and warm seas, year-round. Even hurricane season is typically no big deal. And the unique geography of the area gives us shallow, comfortable bays that aren’t intimidating for newer divers, but still provide thrills like tumbling walls close at hand where the shelf ends or the fliting fish of the world’s 3rd largest barrier reef. So whether you’re brand new to the sport and need to learn to scuba dive from scratch, or you’re an old hand looking for a little bit of everything to enjoy, the Turks and Caicos offer you a diving experience like no other.

Learn to scuba dive with the Big Blue Collective

The Big Blue Collective are your local specialists in private diving adventures. We also offer public tank dives twice a week. We’re privileged to be able to offer you a full range of the internationally acclaimed PADI diving courses, too, through our certified instructors. 

Our most popular certification, the PADI Open Water certificate, can be enrolled for through eLearning as well. This means you can get the theoretical coursework out the way before you arrive on the islands. You’ll be able to dive (pun intended) straight into your pool training, and subsequently get right out into the open water for your 4 certification dives. This way, you won’t miss a second of adventure or holiday on coursework learning, even if you’ve never dived before. 

The Big Blue Collective experience

Scuba diving is an experience-orientated sport. It’s about the magic of nature and fun in the water. That’s why the Big Blue Collective has taken special care to create a unique dive tuition mindset, primarily focused on small group dives with no limitations. We offer flexible learning that accommodates weather, tide, site profiles, wildlife, and, of course, your own dive history, experience, and whims. 

This helps us create a dive experience like no other. Experienced divers will feel unconstrained, able to explore their passion under the water. Nervous or inexperienced divers will have the safety net of top-level professionals with keen eyes on you, ensuring everything goes well. 

Turks and Caicos dive sites

As we mentioned earlier, the Turks and Caicos have a little bit of everything to offer a diver. Walls, reefs, even a wreck or two, and an inland dive site too. You can experience everything here. Our homebase is conveniently located in the Leeward Channel, on Provo’s east side. This means our dive boats can easily access dive locations in any direction, throughout the TCI waters, without hassle. 

This, in turn, lets us create a smooth experience no matter what the weather throws at us. We can explore for whales in whale season, or choose the smoothest route to a site. We’re even able to offer a pick-up service from the many private villas nearby. 

Powered by the in-depth knowledge and experience of our certified dive instructors, each of whom are excellent divemasters themselves, this allows us to offer one of the most adventurous and versatile dive programs available in the Turks and Caicos.
