Patrick & his partner did an excellent job. It was easy to find the meeting point & they were early for pick up & because all guests were present- we set our early as well. The drive to the excursion was interesting with a view of pink flamingos, donkeys & goats on the side of the road. Patrick provided a great narrative about the mangroves & their significance to the island. Tour was given in both English & Dutch. While snorkeling- Tons of fish to see that hug the mangrove roots! Adorable very friendly young dog & cat at the beach area- so bring a treat!

Enthusiastic guide who showed us the secrets of the mangroves: corals below the water on the roots, barracudas looking for fishes etc. Nice kayaktrip through protected mangrove area. You can’t see this without guide. When riding to this remote place we saw many many flamingos. Great experience, we wouldn’t have missed!

It was an interesting trip. Driving all the way to Lac Cai Beach was an adventure all its own. The kayaking brought us through the mangroves and to be able to snorkel through the mangroves was cool.

Really good trip, we are a family of 6 adults on a cruise and I booked it through Tripadvisor. It was easy to book and very clear instructions re pick up which was very close to the ship. It was well organised and great fun, the snorkelling was in the mangroves and was not very long but a great experience and something a bit different

Mangrove trip
rob_b
, Jan 2022
Trip is ok, although 45 euro is a bit to much for a 2 hours trip in the mangrove area. Don't understand the glass bottom since there is nothing to see, a nprmal kayak would be sufficient. Also the explanation is not very special. And the start could be better timed, if you start at 0915 don't start explaining at 0910 when peopleare still arriving.
icon Response from Host , Feb 2022
Hi Rob, thank you for your review, I asked wat happend with the briefing. The guide told me, he tought it was already time, and he will be more careful, not to start to early. De clearbottomkayak, maby don't show you that much in the mangrove, then on the reef. But the stability of the kayak, and because it don't lay deep in the water, gives us the opportunity, to go to places where te Ocean kayaks can not go. And is it easy to kayak, also for people who never kayaked in their life. Our explanation about te mangrove provides basic knowledge, we have to deal wiht different interests and try to match the interests of the group as best as possible. If you want to know more about the Mangrove, there is time to ask about it after kayaking, or maybe even spend a day wit the Mangrove Maniacs, who can give you a lot more information

nice but not as promised
Ren

A good trip. Very helpful Guide. Only the trip was not 3 hours but 2.15 hours. There was no fruit at the end of the tour. What’s included: Easy guided kayak tour. Suitable for beginning to more experienced kayakers. 3-hour excursion (total duration incl. pick up time 4-4,5 hours). Kayaks, paddles, kayaking equipment, floatation devices (snorkelvests). Drinks incl. fruit punch, snacks, and fruit. Pick up from your hotel.

Hi Ren, thank you for your review. Sometimes wen we have a experienced group or small group, then tour will go a little faster. Normaly we start with a briefing at 9:15 and we are back at our starting point between 11.30 and 12:15. When we come back we have fruitpunch with a Stroopwafel. And after that there is time to snorkel at te start and endpoint, because there we can find the big turtles, spotted eagle-ray, stingrays. The fruit; we had this in the past, but we don't have that anymore. People liked the Stroopwafel more and we could throw away the fruit or feed the donkeys with the fruit. I thought we changed that in the booking, but i will check that.

We were promised 3,5 hours but the tour lasted 2 hours. Warm water and 1 top sweet drink. That’s it.

Hi Karlijn, thank you for your review. Sometimes when we have a experienced group or small group, then tour will go a little bit faster. It is really difficult to give an pricisely time, because we have to deal with people young and old, but also te weather conditions, currunt, wind, the guide have to wait for everybody. Normaly we start with a briefing at 9:15 and we are back at our starting point between 11.30 and 12:15. When we come back we have fruitpunch with a Stroopwafel. And after that there is time to snorkel at te start and endpoint, because there we can find, many times, the big turtles, spotted eagle-ray or stingrays. We see this also as a part of the tour, but on the water we kayak and snorkle in the tunnel into Puito about 2 and half hour. I am sorry about the water, but it is very difficult, to keep the bottle of water cool in the kayak. I tell most of our guest, to put a small bottle of water in their freezer, so the have cold water.

Patrick was a wonderful guide! We learned a lot about the mangroves, wildlife and some history of the island. The snorkeling was great and peaceful. He was terrific in speaking both English and Dutch. Highly recommend! We have done a few of these tours throughout the Caribbean Islands and by far the best!

You don’t want to miss this! Kayaking and snorkeling in the mangroves was an unforgettable experience. Our guide, Eddie, took great care to make sure everyone was comfortable and knew what to expect. The tour is suitable for any experience level so don’t worry if you have never kayaked before. Highly recommend!
