Richard was very knowledgeable and led us on a memorable tour through the Mangrove tunnels. He would break from time to time to allow people to rest and to share information about the area and wildlife.

We tried this for the first time! It was so fun! Also easier than it looks! The guide gave us a quick lesson and explained where we should go. We also got a water proof map to take along with us. I definitely recommend!
