Experience the best of the Caribbean as you go swimming with sea turtles in a calm, protected bay and take a break at a beautiful white-sandy beach. This 4-hour guided tour includes photos, all gear and instruction, bottled water, a snack and lunch.
Choose a guided walk or experience an exciting paddle on a sit-on-top kayak. Both choices bring you to a bay abundant in sea turtles for a guided snorkel and lunch overlooking a beautiful beach. Guides take out small groups, so you will not snorkel in a crowded area. This tour is limited to 12 guests.
If you select a "walking and snorkel tour" option, you will have a guided walk to a sugar mill ruin, snorkeling with sea turtles (guaranteed) and beach time.
If you select a "kayak and snorkel" option, your guide will provide a kayak lesson and lead you on a fun paddle. This option is appropriate for fit and active participants. First-time kayakers and snorkelers are welcome!
With either option, your next stop is a beautiful beach where you will have an opportunity to have a snack (provided by your guide). There are restroom facilities available.
After your beak, your guide will provide a snorkel lesson and familiarize you with the provided snorkel gear. You'll come from the beach and into calm, clear waters. If it's your first time snorkeling, your guide give further assistance when you are in the water to help with snorkel techniques. Next, you'll be led to swim with sea turtles in their natural habitat. Watch the turtles graze on the sea beds and get the opportunity to experience a close-up view when the turtles come up for air right next to you. Guests are guaranteed to see multiple sea turtles on every tour! Your guide will be in the water with you, taking photos (included) and giving knowledge about the marine life you will see.
It is possible for some of your group choose the kayaking and some to come on the nature walk version- all will arrive at the same location for snorkeling, beach time, and lunch.
