Took a tour deep in the swamp, to witness the Scarlet Ibis coming in to roost, But there is so much more to see, The incredible beauty of nature in this swamp is mind blowing, Its a nice get away from reality
We were lucky enough to ride a small boat through the swamp, guided by Lester, whose knowledge of the flora and fauna of the swamp area was truly astonishing. He went out of his way to find us a huge variety of birds and other animals, and gave us a unique opportunity to observe them at close quarters. The scarlet... More
This was the second time for us on Nanan's boat tour at Caroni and the experience is well worth repeating. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the mangrove swamp wildlife and each time we have seen cayman (small alligators), four eyed fish, tree crabs, snakes, rare birds such as the red-capped cardinal and potoo. The highlight of the excursion is... More
This 2,5 hours tour is amazing. On the way to the nest of scarlet ibis, you can see a wonderful nature around, Tree crabs, snakes, even small alligator, if you are lucky enough. They use wooden boats and our tour guide, he was great! He really was extremly passionate about what he is doing, yet funny. Nanan's organised for us... More

Three different types of mangrove trees are viewable as well as blue heron, scarlet ibis and egrets and the tree crabs the ibis feast on. The highlight of the tour is when the operator motors out to a small island where droves of scarlet ibis and egrets... More

Had taken the Nanan's tour which is about 2.5 hours. During the onward journey, it poured cats and dogs and was not prepared for that. The boat does have a temporary plastic sheet which was used to cover all the passengers. Once we got to the destination to see the scarlet Ibis, the weather cleared and the view of the... More
These guys don't know anything about they wildlife, they just know how to drive the boat around. And would it kill the tour guides to smile or pretend they want to be there?
Several friends and I did this tour. The guide of our tour was able to spot out the most camoflauged animals through dense bush, which was cool. The birds were breath taking and time on the water through lush swamp is always incredible. Definitely worth doing for the cost (60TT which is about $10 Canadian) but BRING SNACKS AND DRINKS!... More
I went on the Nanan boat trip through the mangrove swamp and found it a most interesting and worthwhile experience. The guide was knowledgable and keen. We saw many unusual birds, fishes, and snakes. The highlight of the trip was to see many red ibis coming into roost. It is a truly memorable sight.
