Comments Mickey & Jayne run a fantastic operation. Keeping the group small and intimate makes for a very personal dive experience. Their knowledge of the dive sites and what we could expect to see was invaluable. We saw sharks on almost every dive!! Just doesn't get any better than that!
The whole week we were there the only time we touched our gear was when we inspected it prior to going in the water!
Thanks Jayne and Mickey for a great week of diving.
Turks and Caicos Club is a good choice if you want a smaller hotel with suite sized rooms. Very nice comfortable rooms with VERY comfortable beds (a test of any good hotel). The room comes with an american breakfast that begab at 7:30 (sometimes we had to gulp down breakfast to make it to the dock by 8:00am).
Dnner at the hotel restaurant, Safari, was excellent.
