Located only a few minutes north of the Laughlin Strip, there were 9 miles of Colorado River front to choose from… a variety of walks and hikes, fishing spots, shaded picnic areas and a day-use park with Davis Dam as its backdrop. We choose to take the Heritage Trails Loop then continue on to Davis Dam Trail that splits the dam and Lake Mohave… 5.25 miles roundtrip.
We learned, from other locals, that a permit is required in this small stretch of land near the Colorado River that offers access to some fun sand dunes and a handful of little beaches. Sounds like a great reason to get permission from the Indian Tribes (only $100/year)!
We heard about this Drive-Thru Safari Adventure from our stay at La Quinta Inn where we had stayed prior to our cruise. This morning, we disembarked our 11-night Southern Caribbean Cruise, from Port Everglades, with Royal Caribbean and had this last hurrah in mind instead of a straight ~ 4-hour drive back home. We’ve been to other wildlife parks but we heard that there’s more than just the drive-through safari to enjoy. After the drive, we could exploration other attractions on our two feet like animal feeding experiences, rides, water sprayground, and more.
Our port excursion today takes us touring Aruba with Aruba Watersports Center with their Sailing & Snorkel Trip. We made “pending” reservations this very morning as Carol and Robert, friends we made from the cruise, recommended the adventure. Fellow cruisers, Cindy and Michael, also hoped to jump on the same tour so we all disembark together.
Our port excursion today takes us under the sea in Curacao with The Dive Bus as we’ve scheduled a guided, single tank dive at their home reef, “Pierbaai.” This dive was to refresh our skills in scuba as we’d hoped to dive at our next port stop – Aruba – that boasts the largest shipwreck in the Caribbean. Personally, I dived alittle deeper than expected at 22m / 72ft but my dive buddy kept me safe. Enjoy the video!
We’re in Barbados for the second time. The first time we conveniently located Barry’s Surf to rent surfboards and check out their beginner break. This time, we were aboard the Royal Caribbean Serenade of the Seas 11-night Southern Caribbean cruise. We wanted to surf in Barbados again but windy weather got in the way. So Plan B and according 9 Best Things to Do in Barbados (by US News & World Report – Carlisle Bay) offers “…six shipwrecks also make this area a great spot for snorkeling…can rent water sports equipment like kayaks and jet skis from local vendors, or arrange for beachside horseback riding. Umbrellas, lounge chairs and towels are available for a fee as well.” We’re in!
Our port excursion today takes us touring St Lucia with Carnival Sailing with their Land & Sea Adventure. Nearing the end of the full day tour (…we had just visited the Volcanic Mud Baths…) was a 30-min. snorkel recommended only …
Our port excursion we were stick-in-the-muds in St Lucia with Carnival Sailing with their Land & Sea Adventure. Looking forward to visiting the world’s only drive-in volcano and soaking in mud bath experience. This mud detoxifies the body and helps heal sun burns, eczema, arthritis, sore joints, and more.
