Michael Malone and his team are so knowledgeable. Not only about birds also about the way the ecological system works, river, lagoon and ocean. Ended the day at a remote beach location and Ms Juanita and her family took great care of us. Superb trip!

We did the kayak tour. Michael is extremely knowledgeable and it was a very well-organised trip - pleasant and informative - from the early morning coffee and sunrise to the after-trip coconut milk under palms, overlooking the ocean. A memory and experience to cherish.
