This was a great, great, GREAT excursion. The mangroves are a beautiful site to see. While we kayaked through them we saw baby lemon sharks and other wildlife. The mangroves are very shallow so you can see right to the bottom. Part of the excursion was to iguana island which was really neat as we saw lots and lots of wild iguanas. The guide I had from Big Blue Unlimited was quite personable and very knowledgeable about the islands, the wildlife, and history. You don't need to be super strong or an expert kayaker to do this excursion. I highly recommend this excursion and this company.
