Wind Surfing

Two boards and a high flyer for light wind surfers are offered. Please do not hesitate to ask for assistance should you like to attempt this activity, once you have learnt the technique, it is great fun. There are harnesses available for the rocket in high winds. When doing this activity you will be monitored and collected should you struggle to return.

Hobie Cat

All sailors would know that this is one of the easiest boats to sail. Hours of pleasure and great distances can be covered. You are required to stay in sight of the lodge. Our skippers are qualified to take you out on a refresher course should you require.


It is recommended that you snorkel in front of the lodge around the jetty during incoming tide or even better, at high tide. Please be careful of the jetty and the barnacles that can cause serious injury. You will find gear that should fit your requirements on the deck.  The gear should be returned once you have experienced Dugong’s “fish tank”.
