Follow your guide through Mangrove Lagoon's warren of waterways, paddling while listening to spooky, swashbuckling stories of the times when pirates ruled those very waters.

Meet your kayaking guide and adventurous tour group in the evening in the Marina at the Mangrove Lagoon. After a short safety briefing and orientation to the area, hop on your 2-person, sit-on-top kayaks and launch into the lagoon. Lifejackets are provided for your safety.
As the sun begins to sink toward the Caribbean horizon, paddle at a leisurely pace through the mangrove lagoon, a complex system of waterways defined by the hardy trees' roots. Listen to your guide's stories about the times when pirates inhabited these waters and some details from the sunny, tropical island's dark past. Allow your guide to paint a vivid picture of prickly characters such as Teach, Blackbeard and Bluebeard. 
Under the inky sky filled with stars and a shining moon, look for nocturnal marine life. Watch as stingrays leap out of the water and use the lights on your kayak to look for tarpon and schools of lagoon-dwelling fish. Pass the deserted Cas Cay and hear about the local legends regarding 'spirit hitchhikers'. 
Your tour ends back at your departure point after approximately 1.5 hours.

This tour was a lot of fun and was very beautiful. It was nice to see the different sea life creatures.

This was a very enjoyable way to learn about the island while being able to break a light sweat.

We left a little bit early, so the lights on the bottom of the kayak weren't quite lighting up the water so much. We still had a great time though, saw a nurse shark swim under our kayak, and got to watch the sunset. Our guide, Jason, was amazing and had some great stories.
