GUIANA RIVER DOLPHINS WHERE TWO RIVERS COME TOGETHER

Book a trip on the river during your stay in Suriname and spot the famous river dolphins! Near Paramaribo, two rivers are coming together; the Commewijne River and the Suriname River. These flow into the Atlantic Ocean. By boat we sail across the river where there is a great chance of seeing the Guyana river dolphins! Along the river are also many mangroves where you can spot various birds, such as the scarlet ibis. During this trip there is a visit to one of the plantations along the Commewijne river.

ANIMALS YOU CAN ENCOUNTER

Guiana River dolphin

(Sotalia guianensis)

The dolphins swim in small groups and are highly social animals. They are quite active and may jump clear of the water. We have a very good chance of seeing multiple dolphins due to the good conditions of the location where we will go.

Scarlet ibis

(Eudocimus ruber)

The scarlet ibis lives in the mangroves in the North of Suriname. This species lives in large groups and fly in formation between the resting site and the foraging site. They use their large rounded beak to search through the mud for mainly shrimp. The huge amount of shrimps that are consumed create the beautiful red-orange colour. In Suriname these birds are endangered because of illegal hunting activities and is protected because of it. So these amazing views are still present!
