Caroni Swamp & Bird Sanctuary Boat tour

June 3, 2014

Location:         #38 Bamboo Grove Sett. No. 1
Time:                       4pm daily (2.5 hours)
Cost:                            50$ (local price)
Tour Operator:             Nanan’s

Mangrove in the swamp

Nanan’s Tour Operators, originating in the 1930’s, provides an organized, no hassle, stress free tour.  The first few moments on the tour takes you far away and you simply forget that you are just few miles from the bustling Uriah Butler Highway (and the unpleasant organizer, who probably didn’t smile when you paid your fee). Be prepared to meet many critters including multi-legged swamp things,  4 eyed- fish, yep 4 eyes, super cool, but a bit creepy,  tree boa snakes and tree crabs. Last but not least, the main attraction, the beautiful Scarlet Ibis, while the swamp hosts 180 types of birds, these beauties truly take your breath away as they flock in large groups  towards the mangrove to settle for the evening.

The landscape is indescribable; the untouched swamp allurement comes straight from a movie. The majestic boat ride is definitely a must and allows you to enjoy the serenity the island has to offer. You can contact Nanan’s directly or talk to your hotel front desk for booking instructions.

Packing Tip:

Bug spray (lots of it)

Bottled Water

Fully charged camera

Binoculars (especially if you are a bird lover)

A view of the mangrove

My last advice is simple:

Please take a moment and admire your surroundings, and all it’s natural beauty.
