Lady K’s illustrious captain, Philippe “FiFi” Kunz, was born in Southern France, Cannes to be exact, in 1960. At a young age he developed a passion for the sea, and spear fishing down to the French Riviera Beaches and Bays. Fifi spent many hours swimming, free diving and spear fishing.
While growing up in Cannes in the 70 & 80 , we grew up being always involve in the developing “Vacation/Resort” industry, and back in the days, we had to work to get our pocket money as nothing was given to us free , so I did learn my way out and work in all sort of Jobs, such as Beach Boy, Golf Course caddy, Life Guard, Restaurants, Peach farm , Mimosa…you name it. Then we had to work out way out to get all our knowledge and captain License to work in the yachting Industry. I had the chance to work and learn from true professional, and learn from some of the best.
When he was 16, FiFi joined the French Navy and became a frogman. After seven years of world travel with some existing time in the Navy, he sign up in the commercial dive industry and try a new venture.
Commercial diving as a métier proved less than exciting, however, so FiFi found a new angle and took up diving for sport, getting involved in beach resort life at the same time. After joining a large-scale scuba resort operation, he advanced at rapid speed from dive manager to director of Dive Operations. After receiving an award for Dive Master of the Year, in 1988 FiFi was directed to run a resort scuba operation in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands. It was love at first dive, and thus Caicos Adventures was born, right in Providenciales.
FiFi built his own first boat while catering to divers who desired a more pristine experience such as FiFi could provide in the uncharted walls off the West Caicos banks, French Cay, and South Wall. FiFi was the first dive operator to bring vacationing divers to these extraordinary scuba diving sites! FiFi’s world-class excursions grew consistently and the operation became hugely successful. Now he was a well-respected Turks and Caicos dive operator as far as professional divers are concerned.
Today you’ll find FiFi doing his remarkable thing in the same exceptional place. A true professional with years of world travel experience, FiFi’s expertise in scuba diving, boating, and the ocean coupled with a knack for providing top notch service and personal warmth and humor, are key factors in providing travelers with magnificent scuba diving experiences right here in Providenciales.
