Jander Family Returns

The Jander Family returned to Small Hope after a 15 year absence to celebrate Markus' 40th birthday. Markus and Philip came down first for Markus' surprise trip and the surprise got even bigger when the rest of his family showed up the next day!

Peter is a private pilot and he worked closely with Mike and Jeff at Small Hope to come up to date with the EPIS procedures and frequencies necessary to fly his small plane to the Bahamas. After he, his wife Susie, and his other son Jan arrived, they joined Markus and Philip in diving and relaxing at Small Hope. Philip even completed his Open Water Certification!

This is what Peter had to say about SHBL:

We spent another wonderful week at Small Hope Bay Lodge. As always the service was out of the world. The diving, in large part to the divemasters who will go out of their way to make the diving an unforgettable experience, was over the top. We very much enjoyed the food, three chefs who competed for our appreciation.

We hope that we can come back many more times as we have over the past 30 years.

The Stylings of Stan and Bob

We were lucky enough here at Small Hope Bay Lodge to have our 50th season kicked off with the presence of Bob and Stan. Buddies from Massachusetts, Stan and Bob travel all of the world for their annual dive vacations. They chose SHBL for their 25th (or was it 26th? We'll have to ask Bob's wife.) dive trip.

Not content to just dive, Stan and Bob took advantage of all that Small Hope had to offer. You could often see these two in the hot tub, or grabbing bikes to go see the island or heading off to Goat Cay in their kayaks. They were legendary hosts at the bar, teaching all the SHBL divemasters how to make the perfect Cosmo and entertaining and charming all the other guests.

The Lodge is definitely quieter now that they are gone but we hope that we get to see their smiling faces again soon!
