The canoes were small dug-outs that could only carry four passengers. A man stood on the back of each boat and propelled it using a long pole.

The small dock was designed for tourist safety. Each canoe barely fit, so that men could stand on either side to help tourists board and later to get safely off.

The canoes were rustic (or authentic) and leaked. Our canoe hardly leaked, but another had to be sponged out twice during the tour.

A man at the half way point of the tour, demonstrated how to throw a fishing net. He threw a dozen times so that everyone could get an equally good shot.
