With approximately an hour of kayaking, this is our more intense trip. Perfect if you are looking to get a bit of exercise or have some experience kayaking. However, even beginners can do it – we include a full safety briefing and short paddling introduction class at the start of the tour. It isn’t hard, it just takes teamwork!
We’ll depart from Kim Sha beach into the Caribbean ocean before entering the Simpson Bay lagoon through the channel under the bridge. Make sure to get close to the rocks as we go through the channel and we’ll point out the crabs and hopefully and iguana or two.
As we paddle through the lagoon we get close-up views of incredible mega yachts docked at the various marinas which dot the coast line of the lagoon (Mega Yacht season is from November to April). After about 30 minutes of kayaking we reach our turn around point – a small area of mangroves where we take a well deserved break as the guides point out interesting creatures like the Upside Down Jellyfish and the strange Sea Cucumbers which thrive in these shallow waters. Keep your eyes open for the Tarpon hunting and the rarely seen Grey and Blue Herons which nest in these quiet havens.
Back under the bridge, if weather allows we head to Simpson Bay Beach for a change of scenery and a nice swim to stretch out our muscles before returning back to Kim Sha Beach for a cold drink and good conversation with your guides.
