What you might expect to see:

CHALK SOUND TOUR
Chalk-Sound-tour-smallChalk sound is one of the countries most pristine nature preserve. It sits on the south side of the island and is often rated as the most scenic place on the island. The color of the water in the natural sound is a florescent turquoise blue surrounded by natural iron shore. The middle of the sound is full of small islands, which appear to be floating above the water as the erosion of the iron shore rock formations has created space between the water and the islands. Your eco guide will take you to these islands, one of which is full of iguanas! We will stop and see the dense population of these curious reptiles. This tour is best suited for more experienced paddlers, but the amazing waters and islands make it a must see for your list!
LEEWARD CANAL TOUR (great for hesitant beginners)
Perfect for those who can’t coordinate with the times for the Mangrove Tour or those looking for a different or easier experience:
The conditions in the canal are as gentle as they get being blocked from the wind and waves. The shallow calm turquoise and blue waters of this unique canal makes it seemingly unreal! Your guide paddles you through a waterfront housing area, that boasts luxury homes with unique construction and landscaping. It is clear water and therefore easy to spot turtles, grouper, snapper, urchins, and colorful tropical fish. Great opportunity to practice paddle strokes and for beginners looking for an easy intro experience.
