Looking at visiting Salt Cay and saw a trip report from someone last Feb who experienced high rolling seas. Husband does not do well with big swells. Is this typical for Salt Cay?

Thanks for the help.
Most diving around Salt Cay should be on the normally lee side of the island, protected from the trade wind and associated swell, great in summer. The problem in the winter is winter storms in the North Atlantic that can send a big swell down the lee side. Cold fronts also come through that far south and can generate NW to N wind and seas on the lee side. Timing on either of these is impossible to predict more than a few days ahead. It may be possible for dive boat operaters to shift sides of the island depending on wind and wave conditions, but I don't know enough about Salt Cay specifics to tell you.
