With his blonde dreadlocks and knowledge of local flora and fauna, Pa leads several interesting cross-island walks through rugged terrain.

Pa is an interesting character to meet. We booked assuming we were to do the cross island trek. What we ended up doing was spending time with Pa and others at Pa's house with him demonstrating his alternative remedies for life's ailments. This was interesting...More

Hard hike but the view...The path was well marked and could easily be done without the guide. Our guide was Bruce who was excellent - he had a good working knowledge of the flora and fauna and history of the island. That being said, I...More

Yes they do a pick up from Edgewater, just let Pa know. Best to email them to arrange it all and pre-book for a discount!
