“Can't wait to go back.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

My husband and I just returned from an 8 night stay on Salt Cay. We completed 16 dives in 7 days with Salt Cay Divers. Debbie, Richard and Craig made sure our diving was what we expected. It was a real pleasure diving with both Richard and Craig. The boats are small so we had anywhere from just the two of us to six other divers, very manageable. The diving is very relaxed and I never felt rushed. The dive sites are a short 5 to 10 minutes at the most away. We always saw different things on each dive. Craig was the master at catching lion fish (there aren’t that many). On a few occasions we fed the lion fish to moray eels which was exciting. The best part of our dives was being able to listen to the whales “sing”. We did not see any whales while diving, but we did see some while on shore at the dive shop/Coral Reel Bar & Restaurant. There was one dive where Craig was giving the dive briefing at the dive site and a whale surfaced just behind the boat, very exiciting! We did travel over to Grand Turk one morning for 2 dives, “The Tunnels” and “Coral Gardens”. We were very happy with our dive experience on Salt Cay with Salt Cay Divers. Thanks for helping to make this a great vacation!

“If you dive you MUST make your way to Salt Cay and Salt Cay Divers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We spent 4 days on Salt Cay and dove two tanks each day (3 on 1 day). Salt Cay Divers (SCD) is one of the best operations that we have had the pleasure of diving with. Starting with the arrival the staff of Debbie, Craig, Ben & Richard took top notch care of us, making sure that our gear all fit properly and that we were comfortable with it. Craig, was our dive master for 8 of our 9 dives and he was terrific. Whether it was pointing out some of the underwater creatures around Salt Cay or his dive briefings he always was professional, informative and friendly. At the start of day of diving, our equipment was on the boat, prepped and ready to go. The dive sites amazing with fantastic coral heads teaming with fish and plenty of big turtles, eels, and a nurse shark. The laid back vibe of the island differently rubs off on Salt Cay Diver and makes it an enjoyable shop whether your diving for the day or the week. We cannot wait to go back!!

“Salt Cay Divers an excellent operation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We spent 5 days diving with Salt Cay Divers and found Debbie to be most helpful (she also set us up at Charming House) and friendly, her operation to be professionally run, and our divemaster, Craig, to be very generous and fun while guiding us through his lovely marine environment. The reef was in quite good shape with myriad fish species of different ages. Exotic Lionfish are a problem, and Craig speared some while we were diving. We finally got to eat some, and it was quite tasty. We appreciated Salt Cay Divers caring for older divers like us (60s). We also enjoyed biking around the island!

“Diving made easy.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Great experience. Richard and Craig as dive masters were great. They take care of everything. They are very accommodating and professional. My husband and I did 15 dives in 14 days with them and dive sites are typically a 5 to 10 minute boat ride. So your first dive is typically at 9:00 and you are finished your second dive between 12:30 and 1:00. They will do afternoon and night dives as well. There service was excellent.

“Excellent in every respect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We just returned from a 2 night stay in Salt Cay and were extremely pleased with SCD! Debbie, Ben, Lee, and Richard were a delight to work with and very professional. We not only went diving, but also went on a whale watching trip. The dive site was great and we saw all sorts of sea life, including sharks, turtles and even an octopus! While we were not able to get close enough to the migrating humpbacks to snorkel near them, we really appreciated the RESPECT that Ben and Lee had for the whales and their territory. I would much rather see the whales from a distance (we did!) than harass them by chasing them. We knew that snorkeling wasn't guaranteed (hey, it's not a petting zoo) and I would much prefer to go with a responsible boat captain than pester these beautiful creatures if they aren't interested. Frankly, I think that says loads about the captain's integrity.

I would highly recommend Salt Cay Divers and their staff!
