Comments The people of the Turks and Caicos are on island time for sure, the restaurants are slow and expensive (at least based on Florida standards) The accomdations were great, but hard to get anything from the staff. The dive operation though was a different story all together. Caicos Adventures is a very well organized dive business and without a doubt the best day boat that I have ever been on. Large dive deck, good camera staging area, sandwiches between the dives. Smooth, very fast big dive boat. I ran this trip as the dive leader and took 21 other divers, this company made my job very easy, Fifi who owns the place has a very well run company. His people are very willing to please and Fifi himself is involved with the day to day diving. If you are looking for good quality hassle free diving and don't mind really laid back hotel and food service, then this is one very good place to dive. I would return w/out a doubt
