As a general rule they were pretty good, they allowed you to do your own
profile but were attentive and would lead dives for those not familiar with
the waters.

We hit some bad weather which was a first for us in a long time.  I think
the area of Salt Cay may be to open for the months soon after Hurricane
Season.  I liked the dive operation, very informal, the people were very
friendly and they knew what they were doing.  They had enough boats that
even though one was in the shop they were able to accommodate all that were
there, and comfortably.  The Dive master, who was relatively new from
Canada, really went out of his way to make sure that we had good quality
dives.  Bad weather cancelled two days of diving however.  As far as the
Windmill Plantation was concerned, this was a fabulous place, excellent
food, exceptionally nice owners and staff, and accommodations which were
comfortable, but not stuffy.  The bar had so many interesting things in, on
and around it, it was fun to hang there.
