Day trips are possible to the Chumbe Island Coral Park. However, as a Marine Protected Area (MPA) we carefully manage the numbers of guests on the island at any one time. Our facilities are primarily focused towards our overnight lodge guests, so we can only take day trip bookings when we have availability in the lodge. This means we can only book day trips 4 days before the day you would like to visit. Check with the Chumbe office reservations teams via phone or email to check on availability.
