I did this through Nanan's Tours. The place to see the Scarlet Ibis and I did. More information from the guide on the boat would have made the tour better. Best seats on the boat=front row or last row.

Every time I visit Trinidad I must visit the bird sanctuary. Each visit is different and the experience is always amazing. To see the amazing wildlife that inhabits Trinidad and how they flourish is a wonder. The knowledgeable staff are always going above and beyond.

If you want to see a Scarlet Ibis-this is the place! The tour lasts about 2 hr. The cost is very reasonable (60TTD=9USD) per person. It's a evening-catch the sunset and watch the birds come back to roost for the evening kind of trip. Quite...More

This is ten (10) minutes by car from Port Of Spain without traffic . The traffic is terrible so plan one (1) hour for this trip.
