Default ?? Private Shore Excursion-Grand Turk

I called Oasis Dive in Grand Turk and was told that they woudn't reserve the Gibbs Cay snorkeling tour to anyone on cruises. They told me they're contracted with the ships and to book through my cruise ship. I was also told that when ships are in port that they pretty much control the island. Can anyone confirm this to be true? I'm dissappointed because I didn't really care for the ships excursion to Gibbs Cay since it was only a 2 hr excursion as opposed to a private dive co. that has a bbq. lunch on the beach with snorkeling.
Thank you for any and all input.

Have you tried googling the island to see what comes up. Surely the cruise ship doesn't control the whole thing. I have never been there, so I don't really know, but I have had a lot of luck with googling. You must left us know what you found out, so that others will learn too.

Good Luck.
