None. A depth limit was suggested but the operators were not of the Nazi
persuasion. The dive guide left you to your own devices once he or she
observed you for the first dive.

There is nothing bad to be said. It is a very well run operation by persons
who are there to make sure you enjoy the dives with a minimum of fuss. This
is my fourth trip with Cane Bay and I will gladly return. This time I
shared the experience with my grade school classmate Jack and his charming
wife Judy, both experienced divers.  The wall diving is great, as are the
shallower sites. Diving from their inflatables (The Yellow Boats) is an
experience in itself. The ease of entry and exit is remarkable. Since my
last trip they have added a 42-foot boat that is used when there are more
than 4 divers going out. There is a good restaurant adjacent to the dive
shop which is extremely convenient for after-dive drinks and good food. As
an example of their treatment to clients; my Grand Turk shirt was misplaced
by the shop and, lo and behold, the day after I returned to Puerto Rico I
received it by Priority Mail. I strongly recommend this operator.
