At the Dive Lodge
You may arrive as a stranger but you will leave as part of the Triton Family. Our lodge was designed by the late Peter Timm in 1996 to encourage divers to be social with each other. Our wooden walkways underneath the shade of the vast canopies of lush vegetation that create a tropical feel is unique. As you enter our main entrance you immediately are struck by the feeling of tranquility and so you fall under Triton’s enchanting magical vibe.
Much loved by our clients are the outside honeymoon shower and our fairytale bathroom complete with a free-standing Victorian bath where you can literally bathe underneath the stars. There are bird baths everywhere
Triton’s heart is our huge braai pit that you can literally sit in on a cold winter’s evening and put your toes by the fire, the braai is nestled between our fully equipped communal kitchen and licenced bar with a wooden deck and tables for dining. Here you will make friends that will last a lifetime and enjoy the friendly African way of sharing tales and cooking tips whilst you enjoy a cold beer.
Some of our old divers have been diving with us for years and love to welcome new people and offer advice to novice divers and students on their first scuba diving courses.
Our interns, instructors and dive masters will be ready to assist you with anything that you require during the evenings by the fire or just hang out and chat to you about the days diving and what you saw on your dives, this is all just part of your Triton Experience, we want you to feel at home and a part of our Triton family.
Once you have checked in we will handle your dive gear for you which means that you don’t have to cart it to the beach and back, our staff will make sure that your personal or hired gear gets to the beach each day and is hanging under our gazebo ready for you. After a days diving we will make sure it gets washed and sanitized ready for the next days diving.
On the beach
We absolutely love to show you the rare and small critters that you may not usually see on your dives. All of our dive masters and CMAS instructors have been trained by Eve and her senior instructors and that means that they are taught to offer an experience and not just a dive, we are tour guides and we want to show you the best that Sodwana Bay has to offer.
Our briefings include safety procedures, dive site orientation, equipment, our protocols and facts and pictures about the critters that you will see. We can de-brief after the dive and help you to identify the fish that you saw with the “pink eyelashes” After your dive we offer you fruit on the boat as we try to do a little towards ocean conservation.
We respect the fact that you are on holiday and won’t rush you. If the diving is good and you have air we will keep on diving for as long as you like within the safety of the dive tables. When the weather is good and it’s a beautiful Sodwana day we would love to take you to explore the further reefs, if you are a little unsure of yourself in the water we will allocate you one of our dive professionals as a buddy, he will even hold you hand! We love to spend time with dolphins and watching the humpback whales if we are blessed by Neptune and these creatures come to say hello. Ask about our double tank dives to the far reefs or a full morning enjoying the ocean.
We have a large wooden gazebo on the quiet side of the beach away from all the traffic and crowds between the swimming zone and the rockpools where you can tan, read our fish books, drink coffee and picnic.
