Fly from Toronto Pearson Airport (other departure cities available) to Nassau Bahamas. Once in Nassau, fly or take a boat shuttle to Andros Town. A short shuttles takes you to your island retreat for the next week, Small Hope Lodge.
After a hearty breakfast prepare to be amazed as you don your snorkel mask and fans and plunge into the turquoise waters of the Bahamas. Explore the marine wonderland of fish, coral, and rays. Return to the lodge for a delicious lunch and a cold drink. As the sun rises high in the sky relax in the shade of a palm tree with a good book, or take a stoll along the beach. Enjoy dinner in an open air restaurant and fall asleep in your private cabana under the stars
Awake to another beautiful day in the Andros Island. An amazing half day of kayaking awaits you. Paddle a single or tandem kayak over the turquoise waters as your guide shares the history of the Andros. Enjoy a picnic lunch and then cool off with a swim and optional snorkel. Return to the hotel for an siesta before another homemade dinner.
Enjoy a relaxing morning where the only thing on your interary is to finish a chapter of your book, write a postcard to home, or take a stoll along the pristine white sandy beach. Optional afternoon bike ride to visit the blue hole, similar to a cenote that drops almost straight down about 200 feet into the limestone. At high tide, it floods with salt water, but once the tide rolls back out, the sea water settles and fresh water rises to fill the upper 40 feet or so of the sink.
