Our water sports include swimming, snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, windsurfing, stand-up paddle boarding and sailing (we have Lasers and catamarans)). All equipment is provided free of charge, except for the catamarans and advanced level windsurfing boards. Kite surfing is also a popular activity on nearby Bintan. There are tremendous opportunities to snorkel from the various beaches that surround the island. With prior arrangement experienced divers can explore both wrecks and outer reefs. Charges apply for the use of the diving equipment. We have a number of staff who are qualified divers and can act as guides. We do not however offer any dive courses. The best time of year for snorkeling and diving is from March to November. We have a spectacular freshwater pool with an adjacent paddling pool for younger children.
Diving is available for suitably qualified divers. We can provide tanks, weights, bcds, masks and fins. We do not offer dive courses as Nikoi is not well suited for beginners. Visibility varies greatly throughout the year with typically the best conditions from March through to November. For more information visit our section on Marine Life
