My daughter and I went to Salt Cay for nine days. We did our open water
dives there and then got to do some fun dives also. Dave was our instructor
from Salt Cay Divers. He was professional, patient, and fun. It was so nice
to learn with someone you felt safe with and he was just instructing the
two of us. Later, Richard, another dive master with Salt Cay Divers went
out with us. They were both so good at showing us nurse sharks, sting rays,
lion fish, turtles and all kinds of beautiful fish. Also very interesting
coral. Heard dolphins and humpbacks during the dives. When we went out
whale watching, we saw quite a few humpbacks. Plus we saw some from our
deck at the Tradewinds. The island is still putting itself back together
after hurricane Ike. But everyone was friendly and helpful. We walked and
rode bikes all over the island and got lots of lovely photos and shells. If
you like a laid back, friendly, simple place to get away from it all, this
is the place for you! Debbie from Salt Cay Divers, Tradewinds, and Coral
Reef made it such a pleasant and trouble free vacation. She also makes the
best Key Lime Pie which is Dave's favorite food!
