We have leopard sharks and reef sharks, and the haunting song of the humpback whales when they are here in winter is an awesome accompaniment to awesome dives.


Adjacent to the lodge are saltwater mangroves with crystal clear waters. Kayaking in the mangrove is very popular.


The shallow snorkelling reefs are filled with colourful tropical fish and fascinating corals. Snorkelling may also be enjoyed in the sheltered lagoon with an abundance of juvenile fish and seahorses.
