A Few Words About Small Hope Bay Lodge

Have you heard what people are saying about SHBL.......

Patrick and Leon, long time repeat guests came back twice in 2012 for some diving, relaxing and socializing. Cocktail hour is always fun when these guys are around!  

 The Milward family came to celebrate the wedding of  Isaiah and Marie. While here they also learned to dive, went fishing and danced the night away after the happy couple said 'I Do' 

Lynn and Paul came all the way from the land down under to enjoy a relaxing honeymoon at Small Hope. During their stay they logged some truly incredible dives and had fun goofing off on the dock. Everyone is looking forward to their return trip! 

Small Hope Bay Lodge is a special place where special people come to escape reality and enjoy some time away for the hustle and bustle of life. Whether you are a diver, fisherman, relaxer or social butterfly you will fit right in. Thank you to everyone for all the kind words about Small Hope.

New Years at Small Hope Bay Lodge

Another year has come and gone and as we said goodbye to 2012 everyone at SHBL welcomed in 2013 with quite a celebration. The festivities at the lodge included a terrific feast prepared by our beloved culinary team. The main course was delicious, but oh the desserts! Renauldo decided to break his record this year and prepare a grand total of 53 desserts, quite fitting as we welcomed in Small Hope's 53rd year or operation. 


After dinner the traditional hat making commenced and everyone's creativity came out as they made New Years hats of all shapes, sizes and colors. The night was filled with singing, dancing, Alec's bang bang shots and of course everyone got up for the electric slide! Before we knew it, midnight was here. The decorations were removed from the tree and everyone followed it out to the beach. At the stroke of 12 the tree was tossed in the fire and we all said farewell to 2012! Family, friends, guests and staff all threw in their hats and made their wishes for what they hope the new year will hold. 

It was a wonderful night and a New Years Eve that will not soon be forgotten!

Check out our video to see how to ring in the new year at Small Hope Bay Lodge!
