We loved the tiny island of Salt Cay and the people. Debbie at Salt Cay
Divers helped us make travel arrangments and on site reservations. It was
pretty windy and the visibility was stirred up a bit. The dive operation is
first class. Matt and Trevor set up all of our equipment each day. Most of
the diving is done from small boats, backrolling into the water. The walls
are nice but there was quite a lot of sand covering some of the coral. Dive
your own profile and come up with 500 psi. Very friendly staff and hard
working to make sure you enjoy your vacation. Several people told us that a
good time to visit is May and June. We did see a few whales and sometimes
heard them calling while diving. Some wonderful places to eat include
Island Thyme, Pats, Mt Plesant and the Green Flash. Make reservations ahead
to be sure food is prepared. Very quiet, uncrowded and remote island.
Transprotation is by bicycle or golf cart. Not a lot of beaches but a
wonderful place to visit.
