Mangrove Kayak Tour
Nov 2019 • Couples
Kayaking equipment was well maintained and the guides were professional. We saw a lot of birds and went on a brief hike in the mangrove. The guides provided a pineapple slice and water. The guide was very knowledgeable.

Estuary boat tour
Oct 2018 • Family
This is a wonderful way to see some wild life that you can't see from the beach. A small boat with about 8 seats and a canopy to keep the sun off of you. Our tour guide was a young man about 30 years old. He took us for a tour that lasted about one and a half hours. He was very informative. He knew every bird, tree, plant and animal that we saw. We got out of the boat and walked through the trees to see the monkeys. On our way back he provided fruit and cold water. I would recommend this for all ages
