Not as many fish as I've seen on other dive trips - that was disappointing.
 Water was cooler than I expected.  Must bring own food or order it in
advance from the dive shop to avoid expensive eating out.  No groceries on
island.  Dive operation very accomodating to our group of 10.  The
divemaster, John, had only been there three weeks, so he was still learning
the dive sites; after some prompting, Ollie, an owner, started pointing out
some stuff on the reef.  The crew switched over our tanks, took our weights
and bc's as we exited the water.  They also put our bc's with tanks and
weights on us, as we sat on the stern of the boat with our masks and fins
on -ready to dive.  Included in dive package is a day trip to Grand Turk, 9
miles away, with two dives there.  Great restaurant at Island Thyme. 
Always a fairly strong breeze, which was quite comfortable - never too hot
or too cold.  $.50 a pound charged by Interisland Airways for over 40 lbs
of luggage from Provo to Salt Cay.
