As we approached the channel, we looked down and saw a pod of 15 dolphins. Beautiful! Our excursion was Pirates, Birds and Monkeys of the Caribbean, also through Carnival. Our tour guide was Ryan and he spoke perfect English. We crossed a rope bridge to reach the parrots and monkeys. Beware if you don't like rodents like me, their "rabbits" aren't like ours! Fortunately, I didn't see one but my son did. "Mommy, that was a big rat!" Also, there were black and green iguanas everywhere. I almost stepped on one on the bridge. The monkeys were well handled. They had a baby one that was born at the park that climbed on the kids. He really liked my son! Tip: Take video and pull the pictures off of that. Worked wonderfully! We had the option to stay and use their beach and pool or head back. We were really hot so we headed back. Their drinks were reasonably priced as well. We checked out the new Mahogany Bay port area after lunch. My DH thought it looked like a theme park. If you want a full photo of the ship, go further down the beach. I tried one at the end of the bridge and got almost all of it. The kids were tired and hot so I didn't go farther down.
