We took the kayak tour in sian ka'an... Simply amazing. Antonio is the perfect guide. Knowledgeable, passionate, and friendly. We saw no other kayakers when we were out, and felt a sort of humble exclusivity to have this beautiful area all to ourselves. You will learn quite a bit about birds and the ecosystem. My favorite natural sights were the maze in the lagoon, and seeing freshwater spring into the lagoon. We came close to the blue heron, pelicans, saw king fisher, ibis, and osprey. We're not birdwatchers, but we'll be aware of the birds more having taken this tour. The kayaks are highly stable, and I never feared of tipping, but with the stability comes the effort. Over 3 hours on the water and you will be working. If you are experienced you might be disappointed in the top speed of the kayak, but hey - you're in no hurry out here. Antonio may also incorporate some sea kayaks on future tours. Ask him beforehand if that is a concern for you. For the average tourist like me, this tour far exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend it. Oh, and the lunch provided was fantastic!
