Fifi's new power cat makes an excellent dive boat and he runs a very good
operation.   Boat was equiped with oxygen, first aid, safety stop hang bar
and spare air reg.  However, the head on our trip became tempormental very
early on and became useless.  Fifi gave a 1 hour 40 minute surface interval
with pretty good sandwiches offered. We dove G Spot and Double D. Both were
awesome dives!  Very dense coral in great shape, lots and lots of the usual
reef fish, plus barracuda, eagle rays, and sharks.   The sharks at G Spot
seem to wait for divers to play a game of chicken - coming straight at you
and then veering off when maybe 15 feet away.   One playful shark liked to
do this under the boat at 15'  - making the safety stop a real thrill.  If
sharks aren't your thing, this may not be the best place for you, but the
diving is suberp, so maybe you could stay in the middle of a pack of divers
when surfacing.....?
The drop off at G Spot is straight down to the abyss, and just took my
breath away when I first peered over the edge.
