I made 10 dives total.  Sites ranged from below average to outstanding. 
The site called "Aquarium" in Grace Bay area is world class for
variety of intermediate sized species. French Cay has spectacular walls,
and coral.  Dive Provo has wonderful staff.  Special kudos for Claudia,
Lucy, Chris, David and Jules.  Boat was comfortable, snacks were above
average, lots of choices for hydration between and after dives.  Well
organized, and made double checks on all roll calls.  Dive shop was way too
retail oriented, quite lacking in gear, over loaded with T-shirts.  One
diver went off by herself, the infraction was picked up within 5 minutes of
the beginning of the dive, and an immediate recall and search was
commenced.  The lady was immediately found, quite professionally and nicely
reminded to stay with a buddy, and the dives continued.  Being a dive
professional myself, I was quite favorably impressed.  I would dive with
Prove again, and I would most definitely stay at Royal West Indies again.
