Comments 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.
