Perfect for our adventurous souls!
Christine_E, Apr 2024
Finally saw some monkeys! Knowledgeable, friendly guide People on boats doing their tours at the same time would see us looking at something and then pull up and scare things away so that was a bit annoying but nothing our guide could do about that
Educational, fun and a little exercise.
Debbie_L, Feb 2024
Seeing the monkey, different birds etc in their native habitat was very cool. We also saw motor boat tours doing the same thing so if you aren't up for paddling that is an option too. We prefer this way and had a great experience. We did a similar tour in the Grand Cayman and wanted to kids to have this experience. My only feedback would be to give more details about the mangroves and how important they are for the environment in addition to some of the local wildlife stuff. I would recommend this tour.
Nice excursion

Our guide Davies did a great job and was very knowledgable of the flora and fauna. We would have preferred single kayaks instead of double. But overall a nice excursion.
Time better spent elsewhere

Equipment was dated, very poor seat for example. No instruction and little information was offered throughout the 2 hours. Simple things like a bag for our phone was not offered.
