non diver activities
We're often asked if non-divers can join these tours as an observer or just spend time at the lodge while their significant other dives. The answer is yes, your welcome to come along and join us. All our tours have snorkeling built into them, so there is the option to swim on the surface. Or stay at the lodge during the day and relax in the common room, read a book on the beach front deck or just rest in your room and join us on the evening skiff excursions. Its entirely up to you!
With ample beachfront in front the lodge, we encourage guests to look for new and exciting treasures that come with ever tidal change.
