Have you ever heard of Necker Island? It’s the Island retreat of Billionaire, Sir Richard Branson. It is located North of the Gorda Sound and is surrounded by coral reef, turquoise waters and white beaches. Necker Island is a luxurious resort, but also has a long-standing reputation for working with conservation groups and organizations to preserve and protect the marine areas of the Caribbean. While the resort will reopen in October, you can already visit the island in a nature tour which we can highly recommend!
Across the region, including Necker Island, work is in progress to recover and repair/ rebuild and until October this tour will be focused on supporting the animals on Necker Island and rebuilding the local tour guide Gumption’s boat business and his home.
“Sea It Clear” offers Gumption’s Wildlife Nature Tour, in which you will see a stunning array of wildlife on Necker Island. In this 2 hours tour you will get an exclusive Island pass, to see the Rock iguanas, the giant Galapagos tortoises, flamingos, lemurs, scarlet Ibis, cockatoos, parrots & much more for a very reasonable price.
The funds collected from this adventure goes directly to the Lemur program, helping Lemurs on Necker Island and abroad. A member of the Necker animal team will be guiding you on the tour to give knowledge about the island. Please note that for now tours will not visit Lucky the flamingo and the lemur’s interactive part is closed off until further notice. Don’t worry you will still be able to see the lemurs and feed them through the soft net.
No FLIP FLOPS will be allowed on the tour and proper walking shoes or sneakers are a requirement, so if you want to do this tour on your next charter, make sure you have walking shoes packed!
Tours are OPEN Monday-Saturdays in March, April, and May! 10:00 am – 12:00 pm. Minimum of 6 guests is requested (maximum of 12 per tour) for $85 per person and $48 per child 5-12. If you book less than 6 persons please note you’ll be charged for $436 minimum if nobody joins your tour.
