We try to be as environmentally friendly as possible, solar panels make a lot of the power we use, we produce our own water which we then filter again and serve from a spigot after being refrigerated so we use no plastic bottles on board. All of our refrigeration systems are highly efficient and use minimal power which means less generator noise and pollution.
We have a 9.8Hp engine on the dinghy which allows you the freedom to explore the lagoons on your own AND a 25Hp Dinghy for Watersports.
The Audio-visual set-up on TIBS is spectacular, there's a 100" projection DVD player with surround sound for movies in the evenings, Wii games console with Wii Fit and a formidable DVD collection. We have around 5000 Songs on the computer and you can bring your own music or favorite DVDs
