My father and I are decent divers, and we are taking my newly certified younger brother (22) on his first diving trip this summer. Although he is a beginner, he is athletic and adventurous like us. We've narrowed the choices down to Little Cayman, Provo, and Grand Turk.
We are concerned primarily with the quality of the diving; the island amenities are secondary. Encountering larger marine life is definitely a plus. Live aboards are out. Any recommendations on which place to go and/or which dive shops to use is greatly appreciated. If there is a different spot in the Caribbean that you would recommend, don't hesitate to speak up.
Thanks for the input, shawrg. Looks like we will be going to Provo, as my father has some vacation club deal there.
We actually stayed at Compass Point and dove with Ocean Frontiers on a previous trip. We had an absolute blast. Debated taking my brother back there for his first trip, but in the end we wanted to try a place none of us had been.
