Incredible experience! A big thank you to Omari for taking us on the canoe ride, showing us the beach and sharing stories about the local culture. We had an amazing time and made a friend! 10/10 for customer service. I highly recommend.

Not really a big bird fan, but oh wow this trip was spectacular. Seeing the birds in action, picking fish from the water as they fly closely over. The sunset was also unreal and the mangrove ride.

The guide was incredibly knowledgable, he shared so much information and did his very best to show us a great show. Was also a lot of fun taking over and steering the boat. Thank you!
