SUMMER IN SALT CAY Hello all you fellow divers and snorkelers out there. It has been awhile since I have had time to update you on all the happenings in Salt Cay.It was an exciting winter. We had the fortune of having so many wonder snorkelers, divers and whale watchers. What a great bunch of people vising our island. Thanks so much to everyone who came to Salt Cay this winter. This was the best whale watching season in all the 15 years I have been on island. We experienced more in water encounters both on snorkel and on scuba then all my previous years. Matt has been diving 15 years and exclaimed when he surfaced from his dive "This whale encounter was the best scuba dive I have had in my entire life." This kind of comment was heard so many times this year. I am so thrilled we had so many happy visitors. Just a preview for what's to come the rest of this year and next. The Humpbacks have gone for the season, but right behind them came the Whale shark, Hammerhead and then yesterday,Spotted Eagle rays. The warmer waters are starting to heat up and with the warming comes all sorts of tropical fish returning to our reefs for the summer. We are expecting Mantas in June and of course the mating of the Nurse sharks in just a few feet of water is a spectacular sight to see in June and July.
