Our boats are located on the Sittee River approximately 3 miles south of the centre of Hopkins Village. There is a map on our website under the tab “About us”. There is free parking on the property that is behind a locked gate. We take no responsibility for your car or belongings left inside. To date we have not had any issues with theft or vandalism. If you prefer, you can leave your car down the road at the Sittee River Marina which has 24/7 security. They charge a small daily rate for parking. If you do not have a car you will need to arrange transport to our departure location. We offer this service for $14bz per person round trip which is less than what the taxi and other transport services charge but you may want to check with your accommodation
Our charters are absolutely family friendly. Because of the flexible, customized nature of our trips it is ideal for families with small children and even babies as well as the elderly or people with physical disabilities. Please let us know if you have special needs when booking so we can provide the best experience possible. We have infant life jackets and you plan your tour with your guide so that you will get the most enjoyment out of your day and the plan can change at anytime if your needs change during the day. We have access to private islands and shallow swimming areas so its possible to use an island as a “base” while you do excursions from there and there is bathrooms and shaded areas available. Because you are not on a set tour with people you don’t know, you don’t have to worry about changing the plan as you go.
Absolutely! Our guides are trained to provide a thorough snorkel briefing and will start with a lesson near a shallow sand bar or island if needed. We have horse collar style life jackets which are great for people who are new to snorkelling or are not strong swimmers as they can be worn around the waist to keep you afloat while you able to put your face in the water. We have had people who never intended to snorkel on our boat due to fear of the water or a traumatic experience, get in and with careful guidance they learned to love their snorkel experience. We don’t pressure anyone to do something they don’t want to do but we do try to encourage people to try and with patience and care we help people to face their fears and experience our amazing reef.
