Caicos Adventures runs a once a week 3 tank dive to French Cay or West
Caicos on a 43' by 20' double hull vessel that slices through the water. 
Extremely smooth ride.  The crew sets up your gear for each dive and helps
you out of the water to your seat.  There were only 12 divers on this very
spacious boat.  Breakfast is donuts and lunch is sandwich and chips.  Water
and gatorade jugs.  These folks are very organized.  

The require a computer on the 3 tanker and let you dive so that you are
within no-deco limits.  On this day we went to French Cay.  The viz was
very good despite cloud cover above.  Great sponges, fans and gorgonians. 
The wall was in excellent shape.  We saw a couple of reef sharks, several
spotted eagle rays, several very large schools of jacks.  There were also a
numerous good sized queen, french and gray angels.  Each dive had large
nassau and tiger grouper, barracuda, scrawled filefish.  

They have a bus and pick you up at your hotel/condo and return you at the
end of the day.  It doesnt get much better.
