We like to think of our Open Ocean Experience as an “ocean safari” or “game drive on the sea”. This adventure activity offers guests a rare opportunity to experience the variety of marine life that lives along the Elephant Coast. An exciting launch through the surf, in front of the lodge, takes you beyond the breakers where you spend approximately an hour experiencing the beauty of the ocean and enjoying the scenery of our beautiful coastline, where dolphins, whales and whale sharks swim freely. Depending on sea conditions guests may have the opportunity of snorkeling off one of our shallow reefs. If mother nature decides to give you a special treat you may see bottlenose or spinner dolphins, manta rays and giant sea turtles.
What makes the trip so special, is that we are the only operator launching this far north, so our reefs are in pristine condition and it is just our boat out at sea.
No experience is required for this activity, but the launch through the surf can be strenuous. We regret no children under 12 years or adults over 65 years can take part in the Open Ocean Experience. The trip is limited to a maximum number of 10 guests. This activity is weather and tide dependent and lasts approximately one hour. There is an additional charge for this activity.
