Tropical Island Resort

All activites are included in accommodation rates.


On The Water

Our 40 foot boat Jo Jo III departs daily and is at the dispoal of our guests for excursions. She has a twin 700hp jet propulsion system and capable of 40knots in shallow water.  This enables us to access shallow reef as well as uncharted river systems. All activities are family friendly with no previous experience required.

Deep Sea Fishing

With knowledge of the area built from thirty years of experience we have the pleasure of guaranteeing an unparalleled fishing experience.

Although we rely on our freshly caught seafood for meals we still maintain a high catch and release ration for the fish we don’t need.

Some of the species caught: Red Emperor, Coral Trout, Finger mark, Spanish Mackerel, Blue fin Tuna, Queen fish, Dog tooth Tuna, Giant Trevally.

Spear Fishing

With Haggerstone's remote location comes an unparalleled level of fish-life. All levels of spear fishermen  can enjoy the abundant reefs in our area.

All equipment is provided and coaching for beginners is always near at hand. Some of the species we hunt are Crayfish, Coral Trout, Fingermark and Spanish Mackerel.

Estuary/River Fishing

Haggerstone is fortunate to be situated near an uninhabited stretch of coast line. This gives us access to untouched river sytems.  The rivers are both beautiful and teeming with fish . A great place to explore, fish and discover.

Skin Diving & Snorkeling

Reefs in the Haggerstone area are untouched and show a good example of what Coral Life used to be before human influence. Float over the top of florescent  gardens, or plunge into the cavernous formations created by centuries of uninterrupted growth.

Also close by we have discovered an 1840s shipwreck in a shallow reef garden. Its giant anchors, winching blocks and bronze keel bolts are all visible from surface snorkelling and make a memorable dive experience.

Snorkeling is available both off our day boat or straight off the Haggerstone beach.
