Interact with local wildlife in its natural habitat on this guided boat tour through the mangrove ecosystem of Damas Island. The ultra-quiet estuary boats allow you and your naturalist guides to explore the waterways without disturbing the flora and fauna. Spot families of monkeys as they search for food and learn about the tropical rainforest setting.
What to Expect
One of our most popular tours is almost one of Iguana Tours’ most treasured secrets. If you think the Damas Island Estuary and Mangrove Boat Tour is sedentary, then let our “interactive” tropical rainforest and delicate mangrove ecosystem knock you out of your seat in your boat – literally. This adventure of Costa Rican natural history – its exotic flora and fauna -- is highly recommended for any naturalist, young or old, who wants to experience firsthand the pulse of the mangrove ecosystem.
Let our world-class, highly trained, bilingual guides and naturalists steer you peacefully and comfortably in our high-tech, ultra-quiet estuary boats as the wildlife comes to you – sometimes right into the boat! Experience curious families of monkeys as they migrate across the mangrove ecosystem – which includes your boat – in search of food and adventure. And discover the secret ways different exotic trees of Costa Rica replenish the environment worldwide, yet sustain themselves for decades of growth.

great tour

We toured early march 2018, the tide dictated that we had an afternoon tour which was great. we had 7 people in the tour boat and our guide was amazing at picking out the smallest of bats, snakes and all sorts of other things.
