In Topic: Grand Turk Trip report and pics

I'm glad you had a great time in Grand Turk.

I used to work in Grand Turk in 2003 for the only liveaboard that was there. I love the wall diving.

The only thing I don't really like about Grand Turk now is that they have the cruise ships stopping there every day.

It's a quite island until the cruise ships arrive :-)

If you think Grand Turk is quite then next time you should go to Salt Cay. No more than hundred people live there and the diving is amazing too :-)

When I dove with them they included all the dive equipment but they didn't include dive computers.

Yes, Air Tahity are very extrict with the weight limit with carryons. Mine was over the weight limit and they didin't let me take it inside the plane with me.

I told them it was photography equipment so the told me to take it with me and once I was near the plane I gave it to a staff member that put it in a different compartment.

The sailfish was incredible. Fakara has some incredible dive sites.

If you dive with Fakarava Dive Center, be sure to let tem know that you want to go to the South Pass. They need a minimum of people to go there. Is a long boat ride from the noth shore to get there.

I was there last year and I dove with Fakarava Dive Center. This company is run by a swiss couple and they don't take more than six divers.

I don't know much about Top Dive Fakarava but I didn't have very good experience with the same company in Bora Bora. This is the biggest dive company in French Polynesia and I think sometime they care more about running more trips during the day than giving freedom to their divers.

Fakarava has some incredible dives, specially the south pass but the north pass is amazing too. During my fist dive on the north pass we had a sailfish during the safety stop.

You can see some images on my blog.

Their planes are quite small and don't have much space inside to put any big carryons.

If you carryon doesn't fit under the seat they might not let you take it with you and you might have to check it.

In the past I told them that I had photography gear and they let me put inside the plane.

They have never weight my carryon before.
