TRINIDAD & TOBAGO: THE TWO-ISLAND NATION NEAR THE COAST OF VENEZUELA
ASA WRIGHT NATURE CENTRE & SEA TURTLES!10 May 2013 - 19 May 2013, 10 days & 9 nights
Anyone who has heard of Asa Wright Lodge knows what a fantastic tour this will be. We'll spend six nights there and three nights on Tobago, Trinidad's sister island. Our stay in Trinidad will include a hike to see the unique and highly local Oilbird, the chance for 10-12 species of hummingbirds at Yerreté, and a late day boat ride to Caroni Swamp for the roosting flight of Scarlet Ibis and other long-legged waders. Birding from the veranda is nothing short of spectacular. You will not believe the variety of species that can be seen from one comfortable location, including Channel-billed Toucan and Tufted Coquette. And, as a special treat, we will spend an evening at a secluded beach, searching for Leatherback Sea Turtles laying their eggs! It is a truly incredible experience. One of the highlights during our Tobago stay will be our visit to Little Tobago Island to see Red-billed Tropicbird, Red-footed and Brown Boobies, and Blue-crowned Motmot. The glass bottom boat sails from the dock directly in front of our motel, the Blue Waters Inn. You can also enjoy some great snorkeling. Please register early to reserve your spot. Bob Schutsky will be your leader, along with local experts on both islands.
