If you have any special dietary requirements, you can buy and cook your own food in the kitchen. The fridge comes in handy for storing drinks and other foods. Otherwise 3 meals a day are included and can be taken in the restaurant.  Bottled water can be bought either in the restaurant or in town.

In reality, when you are not scuba diving, snorkeling, visiting local habitats like the estuary, helping teach the local kids to swim, visiting the village….you will be in the covered open-air part of the restaurant, with the fabulous view over the bay, where the FREE wi fi is and the scientists do their work. There you will enter your dive logs, photos, videos onto the Google drive after editing and also identify all the species you observed that day. The scientists are on hand for help plus a few reference books on species of fish, coral, etc.
