Excellent Kayaking!


As we get closer to summer the seas are getting calmer and calmer< These mornings the water is so calm it's like glass. You don't even have to dive or snorkel to see the fish. You can be on the dock or the boat and look down and spot all kinds of beautiful Caribbean life.

The calm water also make for excellent kayaking! One of our guests recently took a kayak all the way to Goat Cay, about 1.4 miles away for some snorkeling. Beautiful day for it . . . . Pin It Now!

New Page on our Website - Film and TV!

For many, many years Small Hope Bay Lodge has been welcoming guests of all kinds - divers, honeymooners, fishermen, snorkelers, nature lovers, relaxers. But there is another type of guest we see every once in a while. The ones who are filming for TV shows or documentaries.

River Monsters
Jonathan Bird's Blue World

Love Nature
UFO Hunters

We have hosted several different shows and decided it was time to showcase some of these guests. We have just added our new page to our website. Check out what these people had to say about staying with Small Hope for their filming adventures. Sometimes we just helped with logistics and accommodation for the cast and crew. But other times our staff got to be in the show!

A Perfect Destination for Families . . . .

This little resort, hidden away on beautiful Andros Island, is an ideal vacation spot for families! As an all-inclusive resort, it makes your trip easy. We are family owned and operated since the very beginning and family is very important to us.

We have Family Cabins, which are two-bedroom cabins with a shared bath. They usually have a king-size bed on one side and two single beds on the other side, but you can request other configurations to suit your needs.

We have complimentary babysitting for kids age 2-7 (small fee for a personal babysitter for infants). The kids eat in the Games Room with their babysitter, and get a special kids' menu (though they are welcome to the same menu as the grown ups). This has been a tradition since the beginning and it works great! It give kids the space and time to be kids, and adults get to be adults! Win-win.

We have a swing set and kiddie castle. We have a Young Ranger and a Young Naturalist Program. We teach kids 10 and up to scuba dive. We teach kids under 10 swimming, snorkeling, or our SASY class, which is surface scuba diving for kids.

The kids here have a blast and parents get a worry-free, stress-free holiday! That's why so many families come back to Small Hope, year after year . . .
