After drying off and rehydrating with water and lemonade you will head towards an historic site, built to protect Caracasbaai from pirates and enemy nations.

Please note:

  • We recommend you wear sneakers/closed shoes or hiking shoes with a firm hold since grounds are uneven and the coral cliffs can be sharp. No flip-flops please!
  • Snorkeling experience is not required but participants should be able to swim.
  • Please remember to bring sun protection. Sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat or cap are recommended.
  • We do not recommend this tour for guests with joint or back problems, pregnant women, or small children. We advise a minimum age of 6 years.
