You can paddle along the coast in hopes of spotting dolphins and other wildlife. During whale season you might get lucky and may find yourself paddling next to some of the biggest mammals known to man! You can also white water kayak on a number of rivers in Costa Rica or paddle kayak through the mangroves.
You can kayak in the Damas Island Mangroves near Manuel Antonio National Park or the mangroves near Dominical, Uvita, and Ojochal. Uvita 360 is a tour company that will guide you through the mangroves near Dominical. Mangroves are one of the most important ecosystems and it is a special experience to see the mangroves up close by water!
A typical tour may suggest you bring sun protection, water shoes, water to drink, a dry bag, and maybe even a change of clothes or towel.
No matter what area you choose to explore, you are sure to spot an abundance of wildlife. Costa Rica’s biodiversity is unparalleled and you are bound to see unique scenery, animals, flora, and fauna making your time on the water all the more enjoyable.
