A Typical Day

Regardless, in all of our destinations our itineraries remain flexible. This allows the crew to take time to enjoy wildlife sightings, spend more time at an ancient village site, or simply cater to the interests of the group. Each night the skipper will go over what he plans for the day ahead. It is usually a general idea – But you can bet they always have the best in store for you!

In the morning, you might expect to have breakfast served around 8am. If you are an early riser there is always the opportunity for a morning kayak around the secluded bay we are anchored in. After the meal, a shore excursion will take place – Either to search for wildlife, look at intertidal zones, or go for a culture/nature hike. We will load into the zodiacs and take off to see what nature has in store for us.  Bring your backpack, water bottle & camera! You never know what you’ll see on these outings.
