Once at Swallow Caye you will have an opportunity to view the West Indian Manatee in their natural habitat. Then we head to Goff’s Caye where you can snorkel off the Caye’s white beaches amoung reef coral and colour fish.
Once you have worked up a healthy appetite exploring the reef or just soaking up the rays, you will enjoy a tasty Beach BBQ that has been prepared by your guide. The BBQ includes fish, roasted potatoes, pasta salad, coconut rice, flour tortillas and our famous brownies. After lunch the next stop is Caye Caulker, where we see Sea Horses and snorkel at Coral Gardens. Finally we stop in Caye Caulker where you can browse our sister island before returning to San Pedro.
Manatees have been called many names, including sirenians, sea cows and even mermaids. The first Europeans to encounter manatees thought that they were seeing the mythically beautiful mermaids, which were believed to be half woman, half fish creatures. On closer inspection however, they were disappointed to see that these animals were not quite as beautiful as they thought. West Indian Manatees live in the warm coastal waters of the Caribbean.
Includes: Beach BBQ, beer, sodas, rum punch and snacks. This adventure departs at 8:45 am and returns at approximately 5:00pm.
Please note that there is no swimming with the Manatee.
