Salt Cay is the island that time forgot. Quiet, secluded, but with world class diving. The humpback whales come from the north atlantic to calf and mate for next season, and Salt Cay is one of the few spots you can still snorkel with the whales. Diving is on small skiffs with small groups, individual attention. Snorkeling from shore with the reefs just off shore - not boat rides away. Hiking and biking around the island will let you see the past of this historical island, where salt was raked and shipped to Canada, Britain and US. Birding up close with herons, osprey etc. The Home is a completely restored Salt Raker home. The walls are roughly 2-3 feet thick and make for a cool interior.

Ceiling fans complete bringing in the breezes. The back patio is covered with BBQ, and furniture. The upper deck is great for viewing the ocean in all directions, while having a drink or coffee, watching both sunrises and sunsets. All linens including beach towels are included. 4 bikes are included for you to explore the island. We pick up and drop off at the airport or harbour. Included in rental. There are 3 small grocery stores on island. The Oceanaire Bistro has great food. Pat's Place is home cooking and family style. Don't miss the steamed conch. Whether coming to 'get away from it all', or to try your hand at diving, or whale watching, Salt Cay is the perfect place to come to. With only about 100 residents, this is the perfect place for you.More

About the neighborhood
Salt Cay is a quiet historical area, once the main salt producing island and a busy hub of over 1000 people. Now there are about 100 residents on Salt Cay, as most have left for jobs elsewhere once the salt industry stopped. Now it is a destination for quiet, relaxed, friendly times, and some of the best snorkeling and diving you will have. Secluded pristine beaches where your footprints may be the only ones you see. Whales swimming by while you have a drink at the café, visit with a ray or dolphin while diving. Come for experiences you will never forget. Go fishing with one of the locals - then cook your own supper or have Pat or Enya cook it for you.
Getting around
Bikes are included with the house for guests to explore the island.
