Kayak Tours (Watherbird)


There are several scenic and extensive mangrove wetlands and lagoons in the state of Colima. Our lagoons are lined with three types of mangroves: Red, black, and white (named for the color of their bark), and buttonwood, which is related and sometimes called a mangrove.

What you most readily see is the red mangrove with its noticeable prop roots. The black and the white mangroves grow behind them.

Mangroves are extremely important to the ecosystems of lakes, lagoons and sea. They shed leaves copiously all year long, creating the basic source of food. Bark, twigs, root material, guano from birds roosting in the trees, and organic matter of all kinds including dead animals and loose sea grass trapped in the maze of roots add to it. All decompose to begin the food chain. Bacteria and fungi are the agents that produce edible detritus and are themselves eaten by marine animals often too small to see. They in turn are eaten by larger animals. And finally, larger predators, including humans, come along to harvest the bounty, including shrimp, crabs and fish.

The kayaking tour takes you around the lagoon, offering many opportunities to observe the diverse bird and plant life that make this area so unique.

Frequent stops are made to observe the various water birds, and other flora and fauna. After about an hour, we'll take a break for snacks and drinks, and a short swim to cool off.

The saltwater lagoon has a channel that leads to the sea, and once rested, we'll head out to the ocean for a snorkel on our beautiful 10,000-year-old coral reef in shallow water.

Top-of-the-line snorkeling equipment included.

The "Aquarium," as we call our reef, is replete with a plethora of colorful fishes and living coral.

The trip will culminate with a stop at a seaside thatched-roof restaurant called a ramada for refreshments and lunch, if desired. This area was once a small fishing village that has existed for more than 450 years. If you choose to stay for lunch, the restaurant serves excellent seafood at an additional cost. For a refreshing drink, try our a "Coco Loco" served in a fresh coconut. If you don't know what's in a Coco Loco, be sure and ask.

Friendly Indian vendors will walk by your table showing off their wares, and as for other activities, there's horseback riding and banana boat rides.
