Kayaking to Iguana Island

One day we rented kayaks from Deep Blue and kayaked to Little Water Cay, also called Iguana Island, conveniently located just opposite the marina where Deep Blue was. It took us about a half hour each way. The trip has its challenges. The wind was blowing enough to make us work, and many motorized boats come to the island bringing loads of tourists. You have to watch for the boats, as the mangrove cays you pass on the way may hide boats from kayakers and vice versa. The boat wakes can cause problems too.

We went to the island to see the iguanas. It is a special protected area for them, and there are a lot of iguanas. We didn't stay long but we probably saw ten iguanas. They are quite tame, and the older ones are about a foot and a half long. You have to walk on the boardwalk that goes around the island, and you have to pay the ranger who protects the iguanas $5 each to visit there.
