Our 'Twilight Safari" cruise operates at 4pm, we cruise on our vessel along our calm coastline up a meandering river where guests then transfer to kayaks to explore up close, paddle through mangrove forests or photograph a colony of sea birds that nest in trees hanging over the river, then onto our final destination where a waterfall drops into the sea.
At the waterfall the fun & adrenaline starts, here even first timers can safely experience paddling in foaming white water or even kayak under the waterfall itself.
