There were only suggestions. Everyone was treated like an adult and left to
his own devices. It was an entirely pleasant atmosphere and more dive

The Caicos Adventures dive boat is by far the best I have ever been on. It
was custom designed by owner Phillpe "Fifi" Kunz and built in
Martinique. It is roughly 40 feet long and 20 wide, with plenty of open
space and shade for the divers. Every detail has been thought out and the
results are evident in the comfort with which one can move about, exit and
board the vessel. There is a safety stop bar, descent line and hanging
regulator for those who might not have watched their consumption. All dives
are at West Caicos of French Cay, both areas significantly better than
those close to Provo. The ride out is about 40 minutes but one hardly
notices it due to the boat's accomodations.
