Additional Notes:
Trinidad and Tobago Extension
A great way to cap off your Guyana experience, with a combination of nature immersion and the luxurious modern conveniences of Port of Spain, Trinidad!

Day 1 - Arrive in Trinidad, transfer to Tobago
Transfer to the airport for your departing flight to Trinidad and then connect for another flight to Tobago. Pick up at airport and enjoy a scenic view of the east coast as we drive through tiny villages, past windswept beaches, and lush forest, as you make your way towards Speyside.

Blue Waters Inn is a beachfront resort tucked away in its own secluded bay amongst 46 acres of lush tropical grounds. It is located in Batteaux Bay, Speyside. The hotel is far from the more touristy parts of Tobago, and surrounded by nature, and the hallmarks of true island life. Here you can truly immerse yourself in the magnificence of the Caribbean, and enjoy the serenity and relaxation that is found here. All of the rooms face the ocean and provide a view of the water that changes color with the hours, from pale turquoise to electric cobalt to a silvery ultramarine (B)

Day 2 - Nature and birding on Little Tobago
Begin the day gliding over the coral gardens of Tyrrel’s Bay en route to Little Tobago and a morning amidst the scenic glories of this rugged isle. On this island, which has been a nature sanctuary since 1926, the Greater Bird of Paradise was introduced by Sir William Ingram who brought them from New Guinea in 1919 to save them from extinction by poaching. On Sir William's death the family gave the island to the country on condition that it remains a sanctuary for all time. In 1963 a devastating hurricane (Hurricane Flora) struck and all the Birds of Paradise were lost. The island has its own native birds (45 species) of beauty and interest including many mainland species - however the real attractions are the breeding seabird colonies such as the Boobies, Terns, Magnificent Frigate Birds and the wonderful Red-billed Tropicbirds .... birds of unsurpassed gracefulness and beauty, just seeing them makes this tour worthwhile. The tour includes a 20 minute boat ride from the main shore (departing from Speyside village). After arrival at the sanctuary there is a walk across the island for about 500 metres through virgin seasonal deciduous forest - itself a fascinating experience. The tour proceeds to the lookout point for viewing the seabird colonies and in particular the unbelievably graceful "tropicbirds" a sight never to be forgotten. On the way back to the mainland, excellent snorkelling opportunities abound (B)
