I did not use one as you can leave your bcd and fins on the boat most of the time. I carried my wetsuit back to my room for a rinse, and that is a very short walk. Have a great time !

Hi! We offer a grill/bar menu during the day and our gift shop has some snacks available for purchase. There is no room service per se but can accommodate special requests as much as possible.
