Marigot Bay has been photographed so many times that first time visitors 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.
Clients are transferred to the shop where they are introduced to the kayaking guide and briefed on the safety equipment and technique (20 - 30 minutes). You enter the water from Marigot Bay and kayak on to the open sea interacting with the west coast, you enter the river approx 20 minutes from the departure at Marigot Bay.
In the river you will travel along a lagoon and canopied mangroves nestled with birds, you might even visit a local farm. 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 and eventually back to Marigot. En route to and from the river are a number of sites that can be used for snorkeling, conditions permitting.
Marigot Bay was once called “the most beautiful bay in the Caribbean” by the famous author, James A. Michener. And it’s hard not to see why – Marigot Bay is unique and beautiful in a way only it can be; rolling ridgelines lush with tropical trees and undergrowth dipping down into the long deep bay of Marigot, with a characteristic palm-studded sand spit that jets out in its middle.
See why so many enjoy this unbelievable fun and exciting adventure tour. Great for novices, families and the nature lover.
