Seperate fresh water tank (no non-camera gear allowed), DMs focused on
finding unusual sea life, they were very careful with your gear.

Fifi's operation is superb. Great people and a focus on service. They set
up all gear, switch your gear between dives and rinse and store it for you.
It is a long boat ride to the sites, we dove French Key one day and the
West Caicos wall the next day; each took about 50 minutes to get to. They
served lunch in between dives. Staff were genuinely friendly and wanted
everyone to have a good time. The boats were pristine and uncrowded. We
were asked to follow the group on the wall, but could dive our own profiles
and timing. DMs were looking for sharks, turtles and unusual small
critters, making sure we saw them. We were picked up promptly at 8:15 every
day, but did not get back to the hotel until about 3:00--with sunset early
this time of year it did not leave much time for the beach, which was
lovely. We will definitely go again, probably dive two days then skip to
enjoy the beautiful resort for a day, then dive again.
