Look for shy turtles, skimming ballahoo and starfish in the inlets. Re-boarding your boat, an exhilarating 20 minute ride in the North Sound Marine Park will bring you to an uninhabited island, the habitat of small wildlife and tropical birds. Take an 8 minute guided nature walk to the top and be rewarded with stunning vistas. Bring your camera!
After the short descent to the beach, relax under a coconut tree, explore the island or soak in the crystal shallows off the beach. Keen snorkelers can re-board the boat and head to an offshore reef; guides will assist with gear and show the best spot to seek amazing marine life. Heading back to the clubhouse by boat, discover more islands and lovely coastline along the way; look out for endangered ducks near Guiana Island as you skim through ‘The Narrows’.
The kayak clubhouse is a charming fisherman’s cottage featuring Caribbean art, artifacts, tropical birds and exotic plants. Here you will be treated to chilled aromatherapy face towels, warm hospitality and delicious refreshment.
