Our tour guide Vernessa took my husband and I along a kayak tour from the Marigot Marina to Roseau Beach and then through the mangrove and up the Roseau River. We had perfect weather and a very friendly and patient tour guide who ensured that I was comfortable at all times since it was my first time kayaking. It was an enjoyable experience and a fun workout, not to mention that we also got to explore a hidden part of the island in the mangrove! Plenty to see from colourful reef and marine life to various trees, plants and bird species.

Would do this again in a heartbeat. The scenery was fantastic and the guides were first class. Good equipment. I made reservation the night before which caused some confusion, but they went out of their way to make the trip happen. Mark of good customer service to fix problems as perfectly as they did.

We met Alden at the pier when the boat docked. Well, in the parking lot. Dfh was not allowed in the prime spots at the pier, and I am so SO glad. We used the app shipmate and this was on their list. Alden put us in a newer van and we drive across the island to Marigot bay where they filmed Dr Doolittle. They got us lockers after we took a private ferry to the resort. Venissa I think it was took great care of us. We got our kayaks and they got us loaded. The two of us got single kayaks. We should have used the boot. Our legs were RED when done and we used sunblock. Across the bay and to the open ocean. Out to the mouth of the Roseau River. We stopped and a local had fruit and coconut for us to try. We tipped him for his efforts. Alden then took us to lagoon where we paddled among what looked like Cypress trees. So many birds!truely amazing! Then way up the river past the distillery. We were fast paddlers so he let us go farther than most. Back down the river and back across the bay. We should have stayed at the resort for a meal. It was beautiful and peaceful. Some from our boat were now at the beach. We took the ferry back across and to the van. Back over the mountain we stopped for photos of the town and our ship from high atop The hill. For those who don't like crowds and want to get back to nature and also get an amazing workout, do this adventure!

We enjoyed our kayaking trip through Marigot Bay and into the Roseau river. It was just our family of 4 with one tour guide. The weather was not very cooperative and rained quite a bit during our tour, but we still enjoyed our time. Though our tour guide was extremely nice, he was way too quiet and we couldn't hear anything he said. He also didn't provide much information, so he pretty much provided just the guide portion, but I'd say not much of a tour. Going through the ocean was the best part/view. The river portion was a little boring - this part was similar to a kayaking trip we took at Sanibel island through mangrove trees.

We were collected from our resort and taken to the kayaking centre next to Dolittles bar in Marigot Bay. Our guides at DFH were Alden and Vanessa who were really friendly and helpful and there were only six kayakers, so a nice small group. The kayaks were easy to paddle and we crossed the bay and then went down the coast to a small deserted beach where we entered the Roseau river. We paddled through a small section of mangroves and then up the main river seeing lots of wildlife including white and blue herons and a pelican. It was really a tranquil and beautiful location. After a while we retraced our way back to the beach for a quick swim before paddling back to the bay. A fabulous way to spend a morning. Many thanks to Vanessa and Alden.
