Full description

Explore Tamarin river on this guided kayak tour. See the various wildlife that resides in the river, and watch the sunset as you paddle along untouched nature and calm waters.

Start kayaking at the very spot where the river meets the ocean, also known as Tamarin Bay, which is famous for its mythical wave. Paddle upstream the calm waters and discover the two main arms of the river.

On one side the Rempart and the Trois Mamelles mountains, and on the other, the magnificent mountain of La Tourelle. The surrounding natural habitat boasts lush greenery as well as abundant wildlife. Throughout your journey, we may encounter moorhens, ducks, long-billed birds, flying foxes, or even monkeys.

As you kayak along the bay, you might also come across dolphins before they head out to the open water. Towards the end of your adventure, marvel at the breathtaking sunset as the sun goes down the horizon of the river.

Very nice, quiet and not too long tour. For everyone who would like to get away from the hustle and bustle. The tour guide even took photos with his smartphone and later emailed them to us. He was able to tell us a lot about the vegetation and you could clearly tell that nature is important to him.
