Trip Advisor Reviews

Just outstanding! Our guide/naturalist, Gates was so knowledgeable but he did not make you feel like you were in a lecture, but rather he was sharing his knowledge and excitement. He was assisted by an enthusiastic guide Katie who has a smile that lights up the dawn. The island is so interesting on so many levels and we explored a lot of it. And Papa Mo made sure we were the best fed group anywhere. I don't often write a review, but this experience was so extraordinary that I felt I should.
