    So do the kayaks have cup holders? Since kayaking gives me a terrible thirst.

    Look forward to getting deeper into the mangroves to investigate the strange sounds we hear there at night, ensuring everyone is comfortable of course. We will work on our sweep strokes once we get on the water to help us navigate the narrow passes.

      Great idea Jim! I found a really cool passage in the mangroves that opened up wide to some really beautiful lakes that I thought would be perfect for this upcoming full moon tour!
