Comments Great dive operation even though boat rides to West Caicos and French Cay are 30 to 45 minutes from Provo. Large dive boat makes the ride comfortable - marine head, rinse showers, fresh water and lemonade, oxygen. Sometimes more divers on board than we prefer (15+) but Caicos Adventures handled them all so well that we did not notice the crowd once we were in the water.

Great corals and some walls rival Little Cayman. Sharks and eagle rays on a number of dives. Lots of fish life, large and small. Good vis although reduced from great by winds some days.

Only two dives a day except on one day each week when Caicos Adventures dives three dives. Lunches served on board each day were adequate.

We rented a house right on Provo's beautiful beach. Good restaurants on Provo. Ask around and check the Internet. We liked casual Shark Bite and BBQ night at the Tiki Hut. Fancy french/caribbean cuisine available at other restaurants. Everything's expensive but we'll go back as soon as we save up enough nickels!
