Comments [The Resort is Small Bungalows located on a Small Island 100' from shore. Access is by Rope Pulled Ferry. Rooms were isolated and very comfortable with a kitchen and living area. The Restaurant and Pool were located on the Cay with the Rooms and were both very nice. The Diving Operation was located on the mainland. They offered three dives per day and returned to the shop between each dive. The Corals were in very good condition with a lot of Elkhorn, Staghorn, Lettuce and Pillar Coral that looked to be doing much better than other locations we have been to. There were not many Large Animals. We saw 1 Shark and 1 Eagle Ray but the small critters were amazing. Loads of Seahorses, Arrow Blennies, Arrow Crabs, Fire Worms, Nudis, and Secretary Blennies. We did see several large schools of Atlantic Spade Fish but it was primarily diving for small things. I would highly recommend both Barefoot Cay Resort and Barefoot Divers and look forward to going back.
