Flamingo Divers owners Mickey and Jayne do a great job of providing divers
with a great experience.  The boat trips from Provo to West Caicos (their
primary diving site) take almost an hour.  Diving consists of a trip over
the wall and a cruise of the reef.  They'll do 2 tanks unless all on the
boat want to do a 3rd but I did not find them eager to do a 3rd tank so I
would get that arranged in advance if you and your group will be using the
whole boat.  Nitrox is available but they do not do custom mixes.  I found
the diving to be better than I expected with a wide variety of fish and
other critters.  We even saw a few schools of fish.

Harbour Club consists of 6 identical one-story, one-bath, one-bedroom
villas with no phone and no ovens but all other items you will need.  Barry
& Marta make you feel at home and provide great company.  The grounds
are nicely landscaped with a wide variety of tropical flowers, a small pool
and a covered patio featuring a large gas grill.  The bedrooms are air
conditioned but cross breezes kept us cool in early June so we did not use
it.  Mosquitos can be a problem so bring the DEET.  It's a 15 minute drive
to town or to the airport.
