I like sea kayaking in the Platanares river. It's a simple trip really. Anyone can go in this tour. All the sea kayaking companies in town offer quite the same and at the same price, so go with whoever really. Put sunblock and protect yourself from mosquitoes and hot sunny day in Golfo Dulce.

We went on a kayaking trip through the mangroves and had a fantastic time! Joe is very knowledgeable about birds and plants and took us places we'd never have found on our own.

Took an afternoon kayak with Joe. Had a nice paddle, saw some bottlenose dolphins close up, went for a swim and ate a fresh fruit snack on the beach. Outstanding.

I had a relaxing morning paddle up the mangrove lined river. This was a fun way to go birding -Be sure bring your camera, binoculars, and plenty of water. Joe was an excellent guide and naturalist! Next time i'll try fishing from the kayak.
