Show Case

Lady Pirate

This weeks  Salt Cay showcase is Lady Pirate. She is our newest rental property in Salt Cay.
This privately owned home is in the north district , right across the street from the gorgeous sunset side of the island. One block from Salt Cay Divers and Coral Reef Bar and Grill, this house is centrally located yet off the street offering lots of privacy. Lady Pirate is a two bedroom,one bath house,with a large living room and modern kitchen. The well stocked kitchen is a dream to cook in and has a nice patio for outside dining.
The upstairs deck has gorgeous views of the ocean and is excellent for relaxing and enjoying the sunset with an ice cold drink in hand. For reservations contact Debbie at or call 6492411009. For pictures go to Hope to see you in Salt Cay real soon.

Go Away Isaac

Well Issac is giving Salt Cay some much needed rain. The donkeys were actually kicking their heals up and playing they were so excited to have water and soon, more food. Thanks for all the emails  from our friends wishing us safe harbor  from the storm. We have gusting winds at about 30MPH , no real sea action, so hope to be out diving again tomorrow. Sun is shinning and life is good. Just hope Isaac stays away from Haiti, Cuba and Fl. Be safe to all who might be in the path of Hurricane Issac.

Thanks so much to Jean- Paul from France who took this shot of a shark on our reef.  Jean Paul and Claudette  saved the best for last by coming to Salt Cay for their final island adventure in the Turks and Caicos. Although they didn't get a picture, they also saw our local Hammerhead again near northwest wall. Our mama Spotted Eagle ray visited and they saw her while snorkeling under the bluff.
They said Salt Cay had the most fish of all the islands they had visited and clearly the best snorkeling from the beach of anywhere in both the Caicos or Turks islands. Thanks so much for sharing your precious holiday time with us.

Team Salt Cay Divers off for a well deserved holiday.

Salt Cay Divers  staff are on their usual trek of returning home to their native lands. Richard is going off to the Phillipines, Enye to Haiti, Willy already is in Haiti, Antonia going to Dominican Republic and Philiman just called to say she WILL be coming back after her visit to the US.
Victor known to some as Beto, is still in the Dominican Republic and I hope he is having a fantastic time with his family.
Ollie is going to be here all of Sept for anyone interested in any water activities, just let him know. He considers living in Salt Cay is  already paradise so he doesn't have to go anywhere else as he is home.
 I will be off until Oct 5th and might not have access to Internet, so please know, I will get with you as soon as I get Internet access.
Thanks so very much to all the team members and guests making Salt Cay Divers such a special place . Have a great vacation, rest up, enjoy your family and hurry back as I anticipate an exciting season for our winter months with the returning Humpback whales.

  After the kids are all back in school, airfares usually drop, so start planning now.

Friendly Shark Seen Smiling

Yes, it is true. Our honeymoon couple Luis and Niki swear the 7 ft shark swimming past them was smiling as it went by. We only have friendly sharks in the Turks Islands They said they saw more fish than ever expected and loved Salt Cay.
Thanks to all the divers who continue to keep the Lion fish off our reefs. That's why we still have so many fish.
Come spend your honeymoon or have a romantic getaway to the gorgeous island of Salt Cay.
We also had our youngest visitor do his Discover Scuba class. Ten year old Abel and his father Metton went diving together for the first time. A family that dives together stays together. He will be back next year for his  Jr. open water certification. Great job Abel!
New Eco-adventures being offered this fall. Never too early to make your travel plans now.
