Fish and Snorkel
Spend the morning either bottom fishing or trolling around the inner reefs in the Placencia area,or just trolling along the barrier reef, catch snappers, groupers, mackerels, king mackerels, barracudas, maybe even get lucky with a Dorado or Wahoo along the Barrier reef, after all it is fishing. Once done with fishing we head to one of the nearby islands and snorkel a bit, while the morning's catch is being prepped and grilled for lunch. by the time you're done snorkeling lunch will be ready. enjoy a beach buffet lunch then relax a bit. when you're ready you can either fish or snorkel some more to end off an adventurous day.
This can be combined with Lobster Hunting for a longer more adventurous day.

Monkey River Wildlife Sightseeing with Manatee Spotting
About 40 minutes south of Placencia is Monkey River Village a small small village at the mouth of Monkey River, this place was once a thriving town where the banana trade was centered. Now still home to a small amount of families you will head out from Placencia with one of the guides from the village, along the way you will pass through some mangrove tunnels then you're there at the mouth of Monkey River, you will head up the river cruising slowly as the guides point out various animals and insects of interest. There are many species of birds, minute bats, sunbathing iguanas, turtles and sometime even crocodiles. eventually you will stop at a trail, whichever one is th favorite of your guide. he will then lead you along the trail pointing out other items of interest while looking for the illusive howler monkey, these guys are small but loud, they can be heard from miles away, most times you get to see them. When done with the trail if the river level is suitable you will be able to take a swim then cruise back to the village for some locally prepared lunch. After lunch indulge in a chat with friendly villagers or head on home. on the way, stop in at local habitat area and look out for the shy West Indian Manatee, these guys are very shy but often times you can get a good view of them. from there is back to your resort to relax the rest of the day

Snorkeling, Lobster Hunting and Island R&R
Our family owned island has nothing on it, just an empty paradise, live the life of a lobster fisherman for a few hours as we snorkel along and hunt lobsters and your guides catch them. along the way if we find a conch we pick it up or a good eating fish we spear it for the grill, once the snorkel/hunt is done we relax on the beach or in the water as the morning's catch is prepped and grilled. Then we enjoy a seafood buffet with our catch. After lunch we can either relax for the rest of the day or we snorkel some more, depends on how you feel, Rum Punch is included but you have to order it before the trip starts.
Keep in mind lobsters and conch is seasonal so our catch is dependent on the season.
Lobster season is closed February 14th to June 15th
Conch season is closed July 1st to October 1st
