Located on a delicate isthmus of land and embraced by three distinct bodies of water, Biras Creek offers guests a host of ways to explore the exquisite treasures of the sea, both above and below—from sailing and scuba to snorkeling, kayaking and more.
Biras Creek offers guests instruction and equipment to enjoy a variety of water sports. Kayaks, Laser sailboats and Hobie Cats, windsurfing boards are available for daily use at Deep Bay. Our expert instructors are on the beach from 9 am to 5 pm daily to provide complimentary instruction in sailing and windsurfing.
Explore the world beneath the crystal blue seas by snorkeling the North Sound. Dotted with small islands and graced by lengths of colorful reef, the North Sound offers snorkelers a chance to take in healthy and graceful gardens of coral, sponges, sea fans and more. Masks and fins are available for guests and can be picked up at the Marina Village near the Fat Virgin Gift Shop.
Introduction to Scuba
An "Introduction to Scuba" Resort course is available for those who would like to try diving for the first time. Guests learn Scuba basics in the morning at the pool and then dive a shallow coral reef in the afternoon. There is a fee of $80 for the pool instruction and an additional $100 fee for the afternoon ocean diving experience.
Grab your snorkel gear and a picnic lunch before departing in one of Biras Creek Resort’s Boston Whalers, sturdy and lithe boats available for guests for two-hour excursions in the North Sound and Deep Bay. Our Whalers seat up to three guests and are perfect for exploring the protected waters that hug the resort or for a quiet escape to a private beach or to pilot guests among the island's many stunning snorkeling spots. For novice boaters, our Marina Village Dockmaster will be happy to provide basic operating and safety instructions.
