Comments WE STAYED ON "PROVO" IN A 1-BR CONDO AT THE ALEXANDRA AND DOVE WITH
CAICOS ADVENTURES. WHEN I CALLED TO CHECK ON RATES, ETC, "FIFI"
CLAIMED HE HAD THE BEST BOAT AND DOVE THE BEST SITES AROUND THE ISLANDS AND HE WASN'T LYING. WE DOVE 4 DAYS WITH HIM, AND THEY
TOOK CARE OF OUR EQUIPMENT AND STORED IT EACH DAY. CAICOS ADVENTURES
IS A FULL SERVICE DIVE OPERATION WHICH IS WHAT I LIKE. BECAUSE THEY
DIVE WEST CAICOS REEF AND FRENCH CAY, WE HAD A 45 MIN BOAT RIDE OUT
TO THE DIVE SITE. THIS WAS PLEASANT BECAUSE THE BOAT WAS COMFORTABLE
AND THE WEATHER GREAT. "FIFI" CAPTAINED THE BOAT EACH DAY AND EVERYONE ENJOYED THE RIDE, BECAUSE HE WASN'T ON A TIME SCHEDULE, AND
TOOK TIME SO WE COULD ENJOY THE DOLPHINS, ETC. WE LEFT THE DOCK
AROUND 9AM AND RETURNED AROUND 2:30 AFTER COMPLETING 2 DIVES. SUBMARINE SANDWICHES WERE AVAILABLE AFTER EACH DIVE, SO WE WEREN'T
STARVED WHEN WE PULLED INTO THE DOCK. SINCE THERE ISN'T MUCH ELSE
TO DO ON THE ISLAND, THIS WAS PERFECT FOR US.
