Here you will find multitudes of coral and shells, as well as interesting marine life including bristle stars, sea urchins, chitons and perhaps an octopus in very shallow waters. From this tranquil setting, enjoy a ten minute paddle through romantic mangrove alleyways looking out for nesting pelicans and eagle rays swimming in the shallow waters below. Be sure to paddle slowly as you pass over the several shipwrecks en route to Cas Cay.
Upon arriving at the wildlife sanctuary of Cas Cay, a deserted tropical island consisting of 15 acres of mangrove forest to the south and volcanic cliffs to the north, enjoy a hermit crab race. You will learn about the importance of the mangrove eco-system and how to identify the various tropical plants and their edible and medicinal uses. Then, enjoy a fifteen minute leisurely stroll along a scenic coral and shell rubble beach. Once reaching the south side of Cas Cay, explore the incredible boulders flanked with beautiful volcanic cliffs, and home to the famous Red Point Blow Hole.
This spot is the chosen place to have an enchanting lunch prepared by your guides. After lunch, you will continue to explore the island of Cas Cay by snorkel. Your guides will lead you on a 45 minute tour through a shallow marine habitat. Explore the sea grass and mangrove nursery habitats in calm, warm and shallow waters teeming with colorful and abundant sea life. Complete your day by kayaking through the mangroves back to the marina. Guides offer snorkeling instruction, point out the marine life and interpret the diverse mangrove ecosystem.
