Nice dive operation recently recommended in Undercurrent.  The owner, Art
Pickering, is selling to a younger group headed by a spirited enthusiastic
Virginian named Dave.  Great guy.  Nice 42 foot Newton dive boat.  Max 16
divers, which we had.  $90 for 2 tank dive.  Drops to $80 if diving more
than 3 days.  They put on extra divemasters so usually no more than 4-5 in
a group.  Well organized.  You can also dive on your own. Long days.  Leave
hotel at 8AM, boat leaves about 9AM returns to dock at 1:30 to 3:00PM. 
They move the boat from south coast to North during week so you can see
West Caicos, Fish Cay (if flat sea) Northwest point and sometimes Grace
Bay.  Very environmentally conscience.  Don't touch, kick etc.the coral. 
Drinks on board, water and juices via fountain and snacks, cookies and
chips.  They change gear between dives.  You can store gear at the dive
shop next to the boat.  I would dive with this operation again.
