Our second visit to SHBL was definitely the most relaxed 9 days we’ve had for a while. We met lovely people, both guests & staff. Had the best nights sleep, ever.
No need for shoes or a watch just a simple routine of eating, diving, massage, chatting & hot tubbing.
Massage was great, highly recommended.
Diving. The dive centre at Small Hope is steeped in history and the dive staff have an ethos that goes beyond the PADI books, there is a genuine passion for diving and a passion to share it with others at the heart of the place.
We dove a good variety of sites like walls, caverns, shallow reefs & of course the blue hole, fascinating geological stuff going on down there.
There was a mix of beginners and experienced divers while we were there, it was great to see a couple of people absolutely hooked after their first dive.
Did a couple of the ‘Specialty dives’ and these are what really sets Small Hope apart from other dive operators. 50+ years of exploration & experience combines with thoughtful customer service, geological knowledge and a sprinkle of magic. These dives are not for everyone but the ‘Over the Wall at Night’ dive is definitely the most special thing I’ve ever done underwater.
I said it at the time & I’m putting it in writing: Where else could you buy that, legally?
We’ll be back for more….
