Tour Details

Marigot Bay has been photographed so many times that first time tourists often experience a jolt of recognition. Not surprising. This peaceful landscape of swaying palms and sparkling clear water also caught the eye of film makers who used the bay as a location for the filming of the original Dr Dolittle starring Rex Harrison in 1967.

At the dive shop, you will fill out the required waivers. You will then be introduced to your kayaking guide and briefed on the safety equipment and technique of kayaking for 20 - 30 minutes. You will then enter the water and take a few practice strokes before setting out.

Paddling from Marigot Bay, you will kayak out to the open sea where you will follow the west coast to the Roseau River, approximately 20 minutes from the departure at Marigot Bay. In the river you will travel along a lagoon and canopied mangroves nestled with birds. From the lagoon you go up river for a short distance then turn back on route to the sea. This section is roughly half an hour on route to the sea. From here, it is back to Marigot. En route to and from the river are a number of sites that can be used for snorkeling, water conditions permitting.

This tour uses expedition touring kayaks and sit on top units all with rudders and storage hatches. This tour comprises a training component especially for the use of the decked units.
