          Hi there, we are looking at coming over around the middle of April and are just trying to get an idea of total costs. Does accommodation include meals. If not how much should we budget for two people for 5 days? Also when is the peak of the whale season? Finally does the hotel have anything like kayaks, snorkelling gear or any thing else we can use to entertain our selves with and do we have to rent them? Thanks in advance. Matt
