While exploring this biologically diverse mangrove forest, your safari guide will share interesting facts about the area including how the seagrass doubles as a filter for the waters of Lac Bay.

Very interesting although snorkeling gear wasn't available would have been a nice option for the swim.

Unlike any other

We had the whole excursion to ourselves, so we a had very personalized tour. Lac bay was gorgeous and secluded. We had an hour on the beach all to ourselves (other than som kayakers going by). We saw lots of flamingos. And when we spoke to others from our cruise, nobody else had even heard of any excursions to Lac Bay - which is good, too many people would destroy the pristine environment.
