Salt Cay Divers thanks you!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for your outpouring of support, phone calls, emails and generous contributions. Salt Cay was hit with a category 4 hurricane. The fantastic news is there were no injuries or lives lost. The majority of damage was to the roofs and will need to be repaired or rebuilt and that we are expected to be without power for several months. Those who know Salt Cay, know we are a strong community and will bounce back stronger and better than ever!

For all you snorkelers, divers and whale watchers, Hurricane Ike was primarily winds clocked at 150 - 180 miles per hour. We did not experience surges and there was very little impact from the sea - the reefs and walls look in great shape and we hope to resume dive operations as early as December. I went diving today - see my comments in the sidebar of the blog.

The main task of getting the electric back has started and once it's done, we can use that compressor and dive! We have very little communication on island - no phones but I do have internet service. If you have reservations prior to December, we will help you reschedule your vacation or set you up with a partner in Providenciales (the big island) in the Turks & Caicos Islands.

Once again, thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your concern and your contributions to the rebuilding of Salt Cay!

We look forward to seeing you in the near future!

Farewell Hilary and welcome to Rich

It was sad day, when Hilary decided it would be best to move on and explore other parts of the world.
Hilary was with Salt Cay Divers for a year and brought a wealth of knowledge,professionalism and fun to our island.
She will be missed.
Rich has joined us and brings his own unique skills and backgroupd with him.
He is passionate about diving , loves to dive slow and discover lots of small creatures for our divers. He is vey patient and an excellent instructor, so now would be a great time to update your skills or further your dive training.
Ms Pamela and Andrew Watson are our lastest Open water scuba divers. Congratulations to both you you.
Pamela makes a mean vegitarian lasagne. So come on down to Coral Reef Bar and grill as we will be serving it as she shared her recipe!

Whales....Whales....and wonderfully more Whales!!

Ok so I warned you!! The most incredible experience that I think you can have, the Whales are here and the boys are just having the most magnificent time playing, breaching, singing, rolling around in the ocean like big kids!!

And we can hear them singing on every single dive. We see them from shore and the water. And to top that we have 3 resident Dolphins who simply love to swim past the divers at a very slow pace so that you can even see their eyes.

Life is good, come and join us.........

Thanks for a great stay.....

Thanks for your help and friendship during our visit to Salt Cay during December, We (Beth, Kin, Kathie, and I) had a great time, which through your help, was better than we could have imagined. Kin suggested I send you a few digital photos which I took while we stayed at Pat and Henry Coe's place. Hope you enjoy them and/or can use them.
