Nature reveals itself to those who do not disturb it. Nature Watching is much easier on completely silent boats.
A Serendipity exclusive is our stealth-like boats. Our silly eco-friendly little watercraft invite you to “invade” the natural world in silence and awe. Quieter than paddling a canoe, the Serendipity boats navigate the slow-moving river to get you close to where the animals remain perched as you approach.
If you want to paddle, that’s an option, and muscle stretching.
Serendipity’s guides that specializes in nature watching are experts at spotting hidden creatures. As we move closer, we can whisper their locations to you, and you can drop the binoculars and simply — look.
Getting very close to a young cayman, the silent boats make nature watching — natural.
No noise. No pollution. No crowd. No smelly petrol exhaust. Only nature. Enjoy some fresh fruit, recline on the comfortable tubes. Dangle your feet in the waters. Sit under an umbrella, protecting yourself from the sun, or the rain. Enjoy the noise of nature, howling monkeys, splash of birds and giant fish.
Tarpon breed here. Basilica lizards, sloth, and three species of monkeys are common in the low hanging trees. The alligator gar appears to be half fish, half alligator. Looking a lot like the Loch Ness monster, they sometimes grow more than 10 feet long.
The aquatic birds use the river as a supermarket, fishing for dinner — cormorant, anhinga, Amazon kingfishers are abundant. Shy birds, like the boat-billed heron, black-headed trogon, and roseate spoonbill, use this waterway for nesting and feeding. The laughing falcon, mangrove swallow, and the tiny American pygmy kingfisher — all here. On a really good day, with a Serendipity naturalist guide, you might see fifty species of birds.
