Though there both morning and afternoon tours are available, we recommend the early morning tours if you would like to see animals as they are most active at this time. On both tours, your experienced guides will do their best to spot animals but please note we must play by mother natures rules and seeing particular animals is no guarantee.

If you are carrying a camera or phone for photos, please be sure to bring something to protect them from the water. Being a dense coastal rainforest, it can rain a lot in this area.
