Most ships visiting Rábida Island offer two optional excursions. One is kayaking. The waters along the northeast shore are typically calm. These conditions mean minimal effort while paddling, allowing you to admire the abundant seabirds nesting among the red cliffs. Another elective is snorkeling. Below the waterline is a fascinating world waiting to be explored. In addition to countless fish of every color, you may encounter sea turtles, stingrays, starfish, eels and sharks while playful sea lions act as your tour guides. The temperature is not very cold, but a wetsuit is recommended.
