Breakfast is from 7:00 - 8:00 AM. 2 dives then lunch at 12:30. 2 more
dives, dinner at 6:30. Night dive follows. Hot towels and hot chocolate
awaited us upon surfacing from the night dives. After the night dive, most
watched one of numerous DVDs that one of the divers brought. After
boarding, you pick out an area to set up your gear. Each station has a seat
that lifts and you can store your gear. Once you put your BC on a tank it
stays there for the week. The only thing you remove is your 1st stage
between dives to signal that you need your tank filled. If diving Nitrox,
you analyze your own tank and log it in a book. There is a multi-leveled
camera table with plugs for charging strobes and low pressure air for
drying. The Capatain (Piers) and crew (Bruno, Christopher, David, Lyndon,
Lourdes and Guerlain) are second to none! Everyone was helpful &
friendly. I was actually impressed with the the quality of the food. We had
various types of fish, chicken and even steaks on the grill one evening. We
saw Reef sharks on every dive except the first one (Provo)!  Eagle rays
were spotted off the wall at about 100 depth on every morning dive. While
in West Caicos, a Manta Ray was spotted breaking the surface off the
starboard stern of the boat. One of the crew spotted 3 Pilot Whales a
little farther off the starboard stern. 2 crew members hopped in the Zodiac
and tried to circle around in front of the whales for some video. Before
they could get to them, the whales dove and disappeared from sight. It was
still pretty awesome seing them swim on the surface! French Cay also sports
HUGE Barrel Sponges & Gorgonians, Turtles,Grey Angels, French Angels,
Queen Angels, schools of Jacks, etc. On night dives I saw Shrimp, Long
Horned Nudibranchs and several cooperative (or dumb) Honeycombed Cowfish.
The weather was awesome with highs in the upper 80s and water temps.
Between 82  84 degrees. There were some waves in French Cay so we would
anchor on the Leeward side of the island at night. Friday evening we had a
cocktail party on the boat before heading out to a local restaurant (The
Terrace) for the only meal not included in our package. It is amazing how
close you feel to the others on the boat by the end of the week. Nitrox was
$100 lump sum for the week & E-6 processing was $10 / roll. When you
figure in the 5 dives / day, I feel liveaboards are a very good value.
Liveaboards are great for divers traveling alone!
