The Caicos Bank is the turquoise colored sea just south of Providenciales and Caicos. It is shallow and consists out of tidal flats and swamps creating an excellent habitat for conch and lobsters. On its southern edge, the bank drops down into the abyss creating excellent dive sites in the form of drop-offs with plenty of marine life.

One of the highlights on the Caicos Banks is the Molasses Reef Wreck, just east of West Caicos. It is the oldest shipwreck found in the western hemisphere and dating back to 1500. The National Museum in Cockburn Town, Grand Turk, shows artifacts and drawings of the wreck. Other popular areas are French Cay, West Sand Split and Little & Big Ambergris Cay. Secluded cays far in the south are Bush Cays and Seal Cays, but these are not often included in scuba dive safaris.
