Kayman will take you on a gentle and relaxing kayak paddle suitable for any ability through the mangrove swap towards the bush-bush peninsular. Along the waterways numerous species of flora and fauna can be seen and heard but everyday is different so you have to keep looking. when you get to the land the trail is an old fire break,... More

As locals, this was the first time we experienced this side of the island. Was really an amazing experience getting to kayak down the swamp. We saw capuchin monkeys and many bird species. We also got the chance to try eating termites! Would recommend Kayman to anyone and everyone looking to explore the Nariva Swamp.

I looked here on trip advisor and saw so many great reviews that I decided to try this Limeland tour trip out, and am exceptionally glad that I did! I was looking up things to do in Trinidad and decided to give Kayman an email, hoping that he would be free the following day. I was lucky enough that he... More

I headed out for Trinidad precisely AFTER carnival to get some much needed down time and escape the ever disappointing weather at home (2 degrees Fahrenheit). With absolutely no surprise to myself, I was the only one to have signed up for the swamp tour and visit to Bush Bush peninsula that weekend. I was so happy Kayman decided to... More

The tour was amazing and Kayman is an unbelievable guide and host with expert knowledge of birds, flora and fauna. We spotted kingfishers, toucans, herrons, hawks, egrets and enjoyed a beautiful hike in Bush Bush, learning more about the flora and fauna. Kayman also gave us a mini-tour of the beautiful Kernaham Village and provided very delicious vegan refreshments for... More

This was the best guided trip we have made on our many visits to Trinidad over the last 20yrs. Kayman's knowledge of the ecosystems and fragile status of the swamp and Bushbush Island habitat make this an essential excursion when visiting the island. The daybreak start for a stealthy kayak into the mangroves then grass/sedge beds before reaching the island... More

An excellent morning out with a very professional guide and highly personable ex-Yorkshireman! All aspects of the tour and arrangements were really smooth and the birding is fantastic. We went by boat as had heavy camera gear and Kayman's knowledge of the ecology of the area was fabulous ...and the howler monkeys a real bonus. Would highly recommend to anyone... More

In September 2015, a friend and I had the pleasure of taking an intimate kayak tour through Nariva swamp, followed by a walk on Bush Bush island, guided by Kayman. While I have kayaked and paddled in Caroni swamp on a few previous occasions, the landscape throughout Nariva is completely different as here the mangrove channels give way to breathtaking... More

We cannot recommend Kayman's tour of Nariva Swamp highly enough! The tour began with kayaking through the mangrove swamp. Kayaking was really fun and we were able to see some incredible birds. There was no boat engine to drown out the wonderful sound of the jumbie crabs scuttling around in the mangroves. Then we arrived at Bush Bush island, which... More
