As a follow-up to last year's report on Barefoot Cay we would like to
inform the readers that the new dive operation is open and functioning
well.  What a difference a year makes.  The little dive shack has been
replaced by a large two-story building which houses several one and two
bedroom condos on the second floor and the dive shop on the ground floor. 
Amenities for divers include 4 or 5 rinse tanks for gear and a separate
rinse tank for cameras only, two bathrooms with toilet, sink and shower,
and individual lockers for each diver.  Air tanks are filled on site and
soon a Nitrox system will be added.  Rental gear is new and of a high
quality.  A retail store offers the usual dive gear,  Also on the ground
floor is a small gym with new exercise equipment and a massage room.  The
two new boats are comfortable and well equiped for no more than 8 divers
each.  There are plans for adding a third boat.  Barefoot divers advertises
"valet diving" on the website and they live up to the promise. 
Everything is done for you.  At the end of each day all of your gear is
rinsed and hung in your locker.  Each morning your gear is set up on the
boat.  At the end of your trip your gear is given a thourough cleaning
inside and out.  Divers can request favorite dive sites and you can dive
your own profile.  Sites are a short 10-15 minute boat ride away and
surface intervals are made back at the shop.  We would often spend the
intervals in our own bungalows.  See last years' Chapbook for our
impressions of Barefoot Cay's wonderful accomodations.  Barefoot Cay was
every bit as satisfying an experience as it was a year ago.  The addition
of a top-notch dive operation has elevated it's status to the top of our
list of favorite vacation destinations in the Caribbean.
