Comments Caicos Adventures runs a once a week 3 tank dive to French Cay or West Caicos on a 43' by 20' double hull vessel that slices through the water. Extremely smooth ride. The crew sets up your gear for each dive and helps you out of the water to your seat. There were only 12 divers on this very spacious boat. Breakfast is donuts and lunch is sandwich and chips. Water and gatorade jugs. These folks are very organized.

The require a computer on the 3 tanker and let you dive so that you are within no-deco limits. On this day we went to French Cay. The viz was very good despite cloud cover above. Great sponges, fans and gorgonians. The wall was in excellent shape. We saw a couple of reef sharks, several spotted eagle rays, several very large schools of jacks. There were also a numerous good sized queen, french and gray angels. Each dive had large nassau and tiger grouper, barracuda, scrawled filefish.

They have a bus and pick you up at your hotel/condo and return you at the end of the day. It doesnt get much better.
