Eric, the T&C are interesting in several respects and IMO worthy of a visit for sociological reasons as well as to dive. But it lacks more than a handful of foul weather anchorages and some of its most inviting spots are difficult to visit comfortably - kinda frustrating. The best single reference for you to examine IMO is Steve Pavlidis'' cruising guide on the T&C (Bluewater Books).
One of the best things about Steve''s book is that it also covers Luperon. If you make it to T&C and find you''ve had your fill, an overnight passage will take you S & E to the Dominican Republic and, probably for the first time since leaving NY, you''ll feel like you''ve stepped off the space-time continuum and are really cruising. Great people, lush land, multiple fascinating sites & cities to visit, and a core yachtie community in the Luperon anchorage that make it feel homey, too.
