Thanks Neal! Just two of the many encounters

Whale watching at its finest. Thanks to John for this picture decorating our sea wall. Hopefully there will be more paintings to come in an effort to beautify our Salt Cay sea wall.
The season of Humpback whales have been amazing. We have had more in-water encounters than all previous years. Lee Munson is presenting an end of the season seminar in Provo on March 30th. His presentation will focus on his findings regarding the behaviors of Humpback whales when snorkelers are in the water with them. This is the second of the projected three year study and hopefully the team will be back next year. Still a few more weeks left in the season should you want to come and experience Salt  Cay.  Watch for more Whale video on Salt Cay Divers face book page. Debbie

Salt Cay Divers and our research team of Lee and Benn have been so busy this season we have not been able to post. The seas have been wild for two days, but we anticipated the weather and moved one of our boats around to the east side of the island. We have been able to get out the last several days onto flat, calm seas on the east side. The interactions yesterday was one of the highlights of the year. Terry and Neil, two of our guests  will be posting video and stills of a mother and a calf they were in the water with for 30 min. You can actually see the milk coming out as the baby is nursing!
The researchers and participants have been trying to determine if being in the water with Humpbacks effects their behavior. I will be sure to post some of their findings once the season is over.
Just as a reminder, with animals in their natural environment, there are no guarantees of seeing or being in the water with Humpbacks. Our expert team will do everything possible to insure you the best encounters, but if you are coming only for the whales, and we get bad weather, "father nature" might not allow whale watching or diving. So I encourage trip insurance if you want to be 100% sure of getting your full value for your money.
Still plenty of time to do some last minute bookings. Look for the videos and photos in the next view days. Debbie

HAPPY NEW YEAR from the entire staff of Salt Cay Divers and Coral Reef Bar and Grill.
Thanks to our very own local Salt Cay Vibes band, we had live music! The music was excellent and all of our divers gave our new dance floor a good breaking in.
Happy 2013 and hope you will visit Salt Cay and celebrate with us above and below the ocean.
