The boatmen from the North will transport you by fishing boat along the magical limestone coast. Along the way the boatmen may trawl Tanna style for Wahoo or Yellow Fin Tuna. You will pass ancient caves and deserted beaches plus the amazing Lemnap (Blue) Cave. To access this remarkable natural cavern you will take a short dive underwater of approximately half a metre into the turquoise interior.
Here you will see that nature has created a stunning grotto, 60 metres in diameter, which is lit from above by a shaft of light filtering down through a 5 metre hole in the cave’s roof. A breathtaking experience.

Depart from the resort in the early morning, travelling by motorised fishing boat with one of our local fishermen. Local game fish includes Marlin, Wahoo, Yellow Fin Tuna, Barracuda and Skipjack. All caught fish belong to the village and the fish are either then purchased by the resort off the fisherman for dinner or given to their village.
