ShoreTrips says...

We believe that half the experience of any tour is the guides, and these people are award-winning naturalists, who are informed and interesting. They will take you on an easy tour that you never thought you could do. The snorkel is perfect for first-timers, yet old hands will enjoy it too.

Upon arrival at the marina and adventure center, you'll meet your guides, receive an orientation and safety briefing, and become acquainted with your kayak. Once you feel confident, your adventure begins.

As you glide along the mangroves in a 2-person, easy-to-paddle, sit-upon kayak, you'll take in the beautiful scenery, while your guide explains what you're seeing. You'll explore the many islets as you learn about the lagoon's ecosystem.

Keep an eye out for large iguanas, and a variety of birds such as egrets, herons, pelicans, frigates, terns, warblers, and hummingbirds.

For the snorkel portion of your tour, you'll enter the water via an easy beach entry and explore a shallow, coral fringed, mangrove nursery. Inhabitants of the mangrove include eagle rays, turtles, juvenile barracuda, tropical reef fish, and other colorful and abundant marine life.

A relaxing kayak trip back to the starting point completes this tour.
