About
The Caroni Bird Sanctuary, renowned among ornithologists as one of the easiest places in the world to view the Scarlet Ibis, the National bird of Trinidad. This tour is timed to witness its arrival when it roosts. It's a mangrove swamp covering an area of 40 square miles (103 square kilometers). This tour features a guided group boat excursion through the swamp, which reveals a multitude of birds, fauna and local mangrove. This is also a great option for a layover tour as it's close to the airport.

It sounds like it might be a boring trip, but it is a beautiful evening trip with nature. Boat ride starts at 4 to time it with bird activity. For $10 you cant beat that.

I have been to Trinidad many times but this was my first time visiting the Caroni Bird Sanctuary. What an amazing experience. Our guide's grandfather was instrumental in preserving this site as a park and national treasure (back in the 60's) to keep hunters out and ensure an environment for all the various species that inhabit this eco system. There are no words to describe the wonderful sight of thousands of Scarlett Ibis coming in to settle for the evening on the island in the grove
This is a exciting tour that takes you through the mangrove where you see all sorts of birds ,snakes and animals that ensure this flood plane continues to thrive.. Originally the channels were created to allow fresh water into the low marsh area for rice production.
Great tour for not only bird watching and photographers but also good for families too.
A must see . I regret it took me so long to come here.

A must see. A peaceful ride down the Caroni River and down to an opening in the river with several islands. Thousands of scarlet Ibis come to roost on one of the islands transforming it from green to red in minutes.

This is a great way to spend a quiet couple of hours, seeing some amazing wildlife 'up close and personal', on a guided boat trip around the mangrove swamps. The cruise set off in late afternoon, to catch the scarlet ibis on their way back to nest for the night. Amazing displays of vivid colour; and on the way we got to see some sleeping silky anteaters, tree crabs, a screech owl and a boa constrictor.

We went one evening in April (start 4:00pm return 6:30pm) and took a US$ 10 trip by boat into the park. We saw:
- Boa constrictor
- Silky ant-eater
- 5,000+ Scarlett Ibises
- Flamingos
any many more.
This is a must trip if you have a day or more in Port of Spain. I can't recommend this more for wild life experience and we come from South Africa.
