I have arranged with Roberto to take the six of us in his water taxi to Green Acres. When I spoke with him he quoted me $25 per person since there are six of us. The only issue is that I am not sure if that is round trip - at first I assumed that it is, but during the night I have had some doubts. When we arrive at the dock Roberto puts me at ease. He will take us to the Chocolate Farm, stay there while we do the 2-3 hour tour, then bring us back for $25 per person. Normally the fee is $30, but since we have six people he has provided a discount.
The water taxi ride starts out. It is still overcast and we see rain falling in the distance. William and I chose to brave whatever weather comes our way, but Nanci has come prepared with rain gear for the four of them. Luckily it is not needed. The 30 minute ride takes us through Dolphin Bay and we are lucky enough to see a dolphin. We also see the large stand of trees called table-tops as well as mangroves along the way.
Roberto is waiting for us at the dock and our route back to Bocas Town is through a canal which has been cut through the mangroves. It's easy to see how important these trees are to the eco-system. Amazing how they can live in the salt water.
