The adventure then continues up the Atlantic Coast with its alternating ocean views and beautiful roadside floral scenery as you make your way to the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary. Mr. Orton G. King, owner of this sanctuary, has spent most of his time tending to his precious and endangered hawksbill turtles. Listen to him spin tales of these ancient inhabitants of the deep. Make a brief stop at the Whaleboner bar and screen-printing shop where you may be lucky to see the artists at work. Try your hand at the technique and watch beautiful patterns emerge on the fabric.

This exclusive sail-away adventure takes you through part of the Grenadines archipelago experiencing coastlines garlanded with white sand beaches as you make your way to Mopion. Use the authentic means of transport which made life on these tiny islands possible. For decades, locally built schooners were the principal means of transport between the islands. Totally un-mechanized, the wooden vessel takes you back to the era of Pirates and Buccaneers, ropes and riggings, and the ever-important bottles of rum. Along the way, sail past Palm Island. This private island is a resort named after the hundreds of coconut palm planted by the original owner over 30 years ago. Continuing on, head for Mopion, an islet resembling an atoll in the South Pacific surrounded by its reef lagoon. On arriving at Mopion, your mind is set back decades, as this perfect setting is the antidote for the stresses of everyday life. The crystal-clear waters and white sand are breathtaking; this is a wonderful environment for swimming or snorkeling.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
