Mangrove Kayak Tour in West Bay
Your guide will lead you to a secluded inlet in the mangrove thicket where he will describe the significance of the delicate mangrove communities within the surrounding coral reefs. There is a wide variety of wildlife to see inside the mangroves. You will see birds such as "Cattle Egrets" and "Wood-peckers"; marine life such as tarpon and juvenile barracudas; Green iguanas, and fortunately, there are no poisonous or dangerous animals or bugs in the mangroves here in Cayman! You will even be given the chance to hold the extraordinary 'Cassiopeia' jellyfish, better known as the 'Upside-Down' jellyfish. This particular type of jellyfish gives off a sting that is so mild, that it is possible to hold them with your bare hands, and not feel a thing! You will notice lots of small fish living within the mangrove roots. The mangroves act as a nursery for juvenile fish, since it is well protected from outside predators. Unlike other mangrove kayak tours in Cayman, we travel THROUGH the mangroves, and not just around them. There is a passage/tunnel that is naturally occurring that we journey through to get the most enjoyable experience. No other kayak tour takes you into the mangroves.
