Activities at Dugong Lodge
A one and a half hour drive will take you to the fishing grounds in the deep blue. Where there is an excellent chance of landing the fish on your dreams. We target many different species of game fish including Wahoo,Darado, Yellow Fin Tuna, King and Queen Mackerel as well as billfish (Sail fish and black Marlin). The boat can take up to 4 anglers.
All sailors would know that this is one of the easiest boats to sail. Hours of pleasure and great distances can be covered. You are to stay in sight of the Lodge. Our skippers are qualified to take you out on a refresher course should you require.
This activity gives you an opportunity to venture after dolphins or head to South to the drift between the mangroves and enjoy the silence. For the more active, a long paddle north along the coast to Pelican Bay can be enjoyed.
It is recommended that you snorkel in front of the Lodge around the Jetty during incoming tide or even better, at high tide. Please be careful of the Jetty and Barnacles that can cause serious injury. You will find gear that should fit requirements on the deck. The gear should be returned once you have experienced Dugong's "Fish Tank"
After your drink requirements have been taken the boat departs at 16h30 from the Lodge and follows the Channel south to Marape fishing Village. On the way you will see nature unfold and set. The boat can take 8 guests who can share the cost.
Walks or Birding
