Safari Floating & Wildlife Observation in Costa Rica

Wildlife Observation

What a better way for a family to spend a day near the Arenal Volcano than spotting wildlife while cruising down a gentle river on an inflatable raft? Feel the sun and breeze and appreciate a lowland tropical river with its lush riverside forest teeming with exotic birds, Jesus Christ lizards, giant iguanas and chattering monkeys hanging upside-down by their tails.

An adventure for all ages

A Safari float is also perfect for naturalists and/or those always wanted to experience the joys of cruising down a jungle whitewater river on an inflatable raft, but in a much more tame and manageable manner. The waters are not rough, but there are rapids and you have to paddle as a team to manage them. This is a great adventure for anyone, especially to be enjoyed by young children or anyone else that does not mind getting tanned and doing a bit of paddling down a class II river while observing wildlife.

Guided Tour

Before you board the sturdy inflatable raft, your certified river guide will instruct you on safety procedures. Then off you go, floating down and occasionally paddling to manage gentle rapids. As you cruise down, your guide will point out wildlife and share with you information about the ecosystem and its inhabitants you are surrounded with.

Be sure to bring you binocular and cameras! This tour can also be experienced from the seat of a one person open kayak.
