Activities on Salt Cay

There isn't much to the remote island of Salt Cay in Turks and Caicos, and that is just the way its residents and visitors like it.  This is a top choice for that getaway you've been dreaming of where life moves at a slow pace and there is no reason to do anything but relax on the pristine beach.  Activities here center on the sea and include diving, kayaking, and whale watching. 

Whale Watching

Salt Cay is one of the last places on earth where you can have a soft encounter with the North Atlantic Humpback Whales. They pass by Salt Cay in the Columbus Passage and the females come south in the winter to have their young. Estimates of the population of whales, both male and female and young that stay in the waters around Salt Cay is about 200 each year. Crystal Seas Adventures offers whale watching trips from the end of January through the month of April and they have the best rate of whale encounters of any operator on any of the islands. Guests can observe, and perhaps snorkel with, these gentle giants when the conditions allow and they have the experience of a lifetime. This is why Salt Cay is the perfect place to vacation in the winter!
