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
