You will paddle to a neighboring small mangrove island, which offers hidden trails that zigzag throughout it. Our experienced eco-guides will make sure you don’t get lost as we quietly cruise through the hidden backcountry. Our eco guides will share information on the wildlife, the fauna, the history, and even some biology. We will also point out things often missed by the untrained eye. We often see baby sharks, anemones, eagle rays, turtles, snapper, conch, star fish, cormorants, egrets and pelicans. If beautiful sights and picturesque views are your thing, then this is the tour for you.
The shallow calm clear water of this unique canal makes it easy to spot turtles, grouper, snapper, and colorful tropical fish. The bordering selena is one of our favorite areas to spot pink flamingos and egrets feeding. We will gladly provide you with mask and fins if you would like to swim with some of the fish life.

What you might expect to see:
This tour will take us to another one of Provo’s neighboring islands, “Iguana Island”. You guessed it… it’s highly populated with wild iguanas! Wooden boardwalks and sight-seeing balconies make this tour fun for the whole family.
Chalk-Sound-tour-smallChalk sound is one of the countries most pristine nature preserve. It sits on the south side of the island and is often rated as the most scenic place on the island. The color of the water in the natural sound is a florescent turquoise blue surrounded by natural iron shore. The middle of the sound is full of small islands, which appear to be floating above the water as the erosion of the iron shore rock formations has created space between the water and the islands. Your eco guide will take you to these islands, one of which is full of iguanas! We will stop and see the dense population of these curious reptiles. This tour is best suited for more experienced paddlers, but the amazing waters and islands make it a must see for your list!
Perfect for those who can’t coordinate with the times for the Mangrove Tour or those looking for a different or easier experience:
The conditions in the canal are as gentle as they get being blocked from the wind and waves. The shallow calm turquoise and blue waters of this unique canal makes it seemingly unreal! Your guide paddles you through a waterfront housing area, that boasts luxury homes with unique construction and landscaping. It is clear water and therefore easy to spot turtles, grouper, snapper, urchins, and colorful tropical fish. Great opportunity to practice paddle strokes and for beginners looking for an easy intro experience.
