Day 1
The Dolphins & Caymans Tour starts with an exciting dolphin excursion from Leonsberg. As you explore the estuary and out to sea, you'll see dolphins jumping around the boat, their enthusiasm matching yours. A delicious Hindustani meal awaits you at the historic sugar plantation 'Johanna and Margaretha' in Commewijne. After dinner the guide prepares for the caiman tour in the swamp. Before entering the swamp, you are advised to apply anti-mosquito repellent due to the mosquito activity. The boatswain will catch caimans using a special loop, after which you will have the opportunity to hold and take photos of these fascinating animals. After an evening full of adventurous encounters, we return to Leonsberg, where you are expected at 4:00 PM and will be back around 10:00 PM. An unforgettable experience awaits you, full of excitement and natural beauty.
