We stayed two nights at The Blue Water Lodge with 3 friends and had the whole lodge to ourselves which made it very cosy. The lodge is beautifully set on a steep hillside overlooking Endeavour Inlet. The view from the large deck and from the rooms onto the inlet is amazing. The three course dinner prepared by Rod was delicious. On the second day, Rod took us fishing on his boat and we (inexperienced fishers) caught many fish - which Rod later cooked as a starter. On the same day we saw a pod of dolphins in the inlet and at night, just below the lodge, many glowworms.
