You’re in the hands of eco experts on this tour. The guides – who are both licensed dive instructors and certified marine biologists – will get you exploring a couple of wildlife-packed reserves via boat. Depending on the group size, you’ll board either a smart catamaran or a small but speedy zodiac boat. First up is the tangled, atmospheric mangrove forest that lies east of Salt River. We’ll continue on to the Grand Cul-de-Sac Marin Nature Reserve, where a coral reef lays the groundwork for a snorkelling session. Regular visitors include shoals of brightly-coloured fish, neon brain coral, stripy surgeonfish and luminous parrot fish. It’s little wonder UNESCO has crowned the area a protected Biosphere Reserve. The last stop is a millpond-still lagoon. Palm trees dot the white sands – you can use your free time here to sip freshly-squeezed juice in the shade, kick back on the beach, or take a dip in the sea.
