The Safari Float by Kayak on the Rio Penas Blancas is a great way to observe wildlife and mix it with a little adventure. Imagine kayaking down a river surrounded by jungle and wildlife!
The day starts off when you are picked up from your Arenal Volcano area hotel. After picking up other participants you will be brought to the river which is about 20 minutes from La Fortuna center. Your guide will provide you with a safety and instructional course along with your paddle and kayak.
The tour is operated on either sit on top or inflatable kayaks. While the river will gently push you along, you will have to paddle to steer and to close in on wildlife. As you drift down the river your guide will attempt to spot animals such as sloths, howler monkeys, toucans, waterfowl, crocodiles, iguanas, river turtles and more. The river and its banks provide the perfect habitat for numerous other critters and exotic wildlife.
After a while we will pull up to the Don Pedro Farm. This is a family operated traditional Costa Rican farm. During your visit you will learn about how the family lives and works. You will be provided with a snack and have time to swap stories with the locals.
Transportation will be provided back to your hotel following the tour. In total including round trip transfers the tour is expected to last 4.5 to 5.5 hours though this is subject to change. This fun filled tour includes transportation, equipment, guide, and fruits.
