Comments Enjoyed my week of diving at Small Hope Bay Lodge. Dive guides were very accommodating. I did some very deep dives. You had the option to stay shallower while others were doing the deeper dives. The deepest dive was to 179 ft. There was nothing really to see at this depth. The divers that stayed at 90 ft saw more than the people that went to 179 ft. There was another dive to 136 ft where I saw a shadow of an eagle ray. There was one shark feed dive, where 12-20 Caribbean Reef sharks feed off a frozen bait ball. Once, the sharks finished feeding, two sharks remained. The food was exceptional and drinks were included. I met some very nice people on this trip and hope I can dive with them again.
