Comments Stayed at Harbour Club next to the dock, excellent little villa. Bumpy ride to town and restaurants, but provided full kitchen and short walk to the boat. Dove French Cay and West Caicos exclusively. Saw sharks on most dives, along with plentiful tropicals. Also mackerel, grouper. Fewer tuna and such as a Japanese fleet was fishing nearby and cleaning out the edible species. Fifi was filling the boats, and took the more experienced divers for himself on one of two boats. The two Catamarans he operated were very stable and spacious, great for the 45 min. trip to French Cay. Only shore diving was on Grace Bay. Hired the dive operator at the Coral Gardens for two night dives.
