I did this through Nanan's Tours. The place to see the Scarlet Ibis and I did. More information from the guide on the boat would have made the tour better. Best seats on the boat=front row or last row.

Every time I visit Trinidad I must visit the bird sanctuary. Each visit is different and the experience is always amazing. To see the amazing wildlife that inhabits Trinidad and how they flourish is a wonder. The knowledgeable staff are always going above and beyond.

This is ten (10) minutes by car from Port Of Spain without traffic . The traffic is terrible so plan one (1) hour for this trip.
