What To Expect

Caroni Lagoon National Park
This tour takes you into the beautiful serene landscape of the untouched mangrove Caroni Swamp, a world-class destination for bird watchers and outdoor enthusiasts, and home to the National Bird of Trinidad, the bright red Scarlet Ibis.

Bird life is particularly abundant in Trinidad and this tour provides a delightful introduction with appeal to bird-watching enthusiasts as well as those just interested in the outdoors. The Caroni Bird Sanctuary is a 48 square mile wetland area on Trinidad’s western coast, part mangrove swamp and part lagoon.

Upon arrival you will board a large flat-bottomed boat with outboard motor and slowly travel along the beautiful waterways admiring the unusual landscape and variety of birds, crustaceans and other wildlife. Birds you may spot include the neo-tropical cormorant, large-billed tern, tri-colored heron, red-capped cardinal, snowy egret and bi-colored cane-bill – to name just a few. Red, black and white mangroves populate the edges of the waterways and many tiny oysters cling to the roots of the mangroves. There are also possible sightings of non-poisonous snakes in the branches of the trees, caimans or silky anteaters.

Arriving in the wide lagoon, the boat becomes your floating vantage point to witness the protected brightly colored Scarlet Ibis. The birds feed and nest in this area and every sunset they fly in unison to roost, a spectacular cloud of red against the evening sky. They settle in the mangroves as the sun is setting, the quiet atmosphere of the lagoon adding atmosphere to a memorable trip.

The swamp was actually way more beautiful than expected! The Red Ibis and flamingos were spectacular among other wildlife!

Scarlet Ibis

Unusual experience, well organized, friendly crowd and guides. We saw the scarlet ibis all coming home to roost at sunset and a few flamingo on the beach but it was a long way away. We enjoyed the tour along the waterway and would suggest others may too.
We made the best of it

We actually enjoyed ourselves throughly on this tour despite it raining for the first half of the tour and us sitting under a plastic tarp. We had a good group and we all made the best of it with jokes and funny pictures. One of the riders actually had trash bags that she passed out so we could all make ponchos.

I’d love to have the company provide that for future rainy tours. Even having a clear tarp would have been nice so we could still see something while we were covered up.

Once the rain cleared we really enjoyed seeing all the birds and hearing about their history. There has a bit of a political tangent during speech the which lost them one star in this review.
