Comments Debbie is the awesome manager of Tradewinds and the owner/operator of the only dive center. She will provide anything you request if at all possible. Richard is the captain/divemaster extraordinaire. Hands down the best we have ever encountered. You will not touch your gear except to dive. We have seen better reefs but the fish are plentiful and put on shows each dive. 3 dives a day is possible with a night dive if you wish. Also included is a morning trip to Grand Turks which was great diving. While there, surface interval is a short walk to a little store to stock up on fruit and snacks so bring money with you. Read up on Salt Cay so you know the score. Pack snacks not makeup. Enjoy the cows and donkeys.
Relish Debbie and her cooks great cooking and desserts. Meet the Island people. You become part of the family.
