Such a fun and unique experience!

Such a fun and unique experience! Priyanka was our guide and we loved hanging with her! She was so knowledgeable about the mangroves, the birds and all the local places she took us too. We would definitely recommend this if you have a love for nature and enjoy trying "local" kept secrets.
