It is a relaxing activity mostly through dense mangroves. That makes wildlife difficult to see. An OK activity with hopes off spotting the varied wildlife.

Lovely tranquil tour among mangroves and straining to spot any wild life. We did see a large snake above our heads on a tree branch and a large lizard and a couple of birds, but sadly no scarlet Ibis - the reason I went and no flamingos either. But thats nature.

Very pleasant trip with experienced guides to narrate and spot wildlife. As others have said the national bird, the red ibis, is spectacular. Equally stunning were the flamingos. Bring a hat, sunscreen and repellent!

Went with Nanan's and had a great time. Guide Rodney was eagle eyed pointing out numerous birds and even some crabs and bats. Boat held around 40 people and that seemed to be the case for all the boats. Take sunscreen and mosquito repellant as you're in the open in mangrove swamps but we did not have any issues with mosquitos. Others talk at length about the scarlet ibis and all I can say is you need to see it for yourself. Since i had my own car, i went directly there without a reservation and was able to get on a boat for 70 TT, a far cry from the tour prices. Definitely worth it.

Very impressive boat tour of mangroves with interesting flora and fauna. The piece de resistance is the island with 8000 scarlet ibises. Individually the national bird of Trinidad and Tobago are beautiful, but to see all of them flying into the island to spend the night and turning the trees into a large conglomerate of red figures like a surreal tree of surreal fruit. The other birds nest in the inside of island. To the north of the island there is mud area full of flamingos
