Stella: another tip:
If you want to go on any excursions, call Silverdeep and JBtours the day you get down there, If they don't have enough people, they don't go out. By leaving your name and room with them, they can call you when they get enough, tell you what day they are going out. Trust me, it's all about the water, and you must get out in it!!!

Blamona,

yes, we want to take a water excursion. I will call when we get there to get on a list. Looking at 1/2 day tours. Which one do you suggest?

Anyone have more tips to share?

I have one. When we went to St John we purchased a "neat sheet" to use on the beach when chairs weren't available. Many uses. They fold up flat and takes up very little room. They are water proof and you just shake the sand off. Better than sitting on a wet towel.

Stella--We have done J&B tours. 1/2 Day. Found them to be very good. You go to Little Water Cay to see the Iguanas, a deserted cay, snorkel stop and a cay for shelling. They p[rovide transportation from your resort. To save time on tips do a search on this site under HowardC. You will find info on Provo as well as other islands. Also go to cairbbean-on-line.com Turks and Caicos forum and do a howard search in the archives and you will find more info on Provo than you ever wanted.

Thank you Howard for your reply. I have been lurking on different forums to gather info and tips.
I did go back to previous posts. But things keep changing in Provo that I decided 3/4 months previous to date is good. Other wise I will drive myself crazy. Example: Bugaloos is now Da Conch Shack. Just read it on another forum and on this posting.
You have alot of knowledge and experience, sorry if I have repeated questions asked previously.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions and tips.

Stella, wait until you see that water, it is the most beautiful in the world. you will compare Grace Bay Beach to all beaches from now on.
I've done both JBTours.com and Silverdeep.com, they are both fairly equal.
My choice restaurants are Tiki Hut and Hemmingways, splurge 1 night in Magnolia's.
There is a Gecko shuttle that goes to most resorts and restaurants, BUT
I would rent a car for a couple of days, you can have a picnic on Sapadilla Bay, or take a 4x4 to Malcolms Beach. Both are stunners. Make sure you take food and drinks, as those are deserted. Lunch on Hemmingways can be on the beach, so you never have to leave. Another good lunch is Saltmills Cafe.
If you can afford an all day trip, Middle Caicos does everything the 1/2 day does, PLUS caves, passes North Caicos, Pine Cay, Parrot Cay, and the beach in Middle Caicos is gorgeous. Well worth it.
For off the beach snorkeling, go in front of Coral Gardens.
Both Tiki Hut and Hemmingways (Sands Resort) have their menus online.
You'll have fun!!!

HowardC,

I will be looking for your trip report. It will be interesting to read any updates on hotels and restaurants.
The more I read about Provo the more excited I get. Sounds like a great island with wonderful good snorkeling and plenty of places to eat.
Have a great trip and take notes. (of course you will)
