Divemaster provided personal service - gear pre-set up and made sure we saw things that we might have missed. We saw stingray, eels, turtle, lobster and my favorite puffer fish.

So Carrie is such a charming little island. Since it is so tiny, it won't be long before you know everyone! Everyone is so friendly and helpful!

We pre-booked a whale watching trip with Debbie when we rented through her. She took a deposit from us and said it would guarantee us a spot on a boat the week we would be on Salt Cay. So we get there on a Saturday and are set to possibly go on Monday. Well that did not work, it had... More

Bridgit, I am so sorry that you had the experience of the boat being filled with other whale watchers. We had the number of passengers approved by the coat guard, so the boat was not over capacity safety wise. Perhaps the boat felt crowded due to all the camera equipment. I was not on the boat so I was not... More

Great divemasters who are enthusiastic about all the creatures to be seen and heard underwater. They load your gear on the boat and set it up. All you have to do is wade a few feet to the boat, climb aboard, and minutes later, roll off the side. Most of the sites are so close to shore (5 or 10... More

Don't know where to start here. Great boat trip to go spot the humpback whales. Super knowledgable marine biologist on board as well as super nice young research assistant students. Goosebumps all over when we saw the whales and it got even better when the team dropped the hydropone into the water and we heard the whales sing. This is... More

We just recently returned from a week of diving on Salt Cay. We did 14 dives in 5 days and it was great.

I dove with them 7 times over 4 days, and went whale watching another day. Everyone involved in the operation is just great. The weather was bad so we couldn't go out the other days, but that's the way it goes sometimes.

I dove for 6 days with Salt Cay Divers, and Richard the dive master does a fantastic job. I can't stress enough how hard he works to give you a great diving experience. The dive group size varied from day to day. One day it was just me, and at one point we had 10 divers. Richard did an excellent... More

Scheduled this trip specifically to become PADI Open Water Certified. Initial confined water instruction with Debbie Manos was great. Dive master Richard Agraba made me feel very comfortable in the water on each of my dives and was easy to learn from. I highly recommend him for excellent instruction and Salt Cay for dive locations that are phenomenal. You will... More
