Mangrove Kayaking

This kayaking tour will take you to the waters that surround Damas Island, off the coast of Manuel Antonio National Park. When you tour this area you’ll get to see estuaries and mangroves, and paddle up the inland canals. Your group can set the pace for this tour, and no experience kayaking is necessary.

An estuary forms the transition between rivers and the sea. Mangroves also occupy two different environments – they grow only on the coasts, with their roots in a mix of salt and fresh water. Fish and other aquatic species make their homes in the roots, and the branches provide an environment for monkeys. These two characteristics of this area make for a fascinating kayaking trip.

You’ll see many more species of birds and plants as you make your way through the island’s canals. The professional guide on your tour will help you spot different species of elusive animals.
