Tours Offered by BirdsCaribbean Partners
Recommended Tour Operators
We are proud partners of the following tour operators. Each company offers high quality birding and nature tours in the Caribbean, plus they donate part of the proceeds of each tour they give to BirdsCaribbean in support of bird conservation in the region.
Wildside Nature Tours has been offering quality birding and wildlife adventures worldwide since 1993. Their group sizes are small (6-8) and they carefully select their accommodations in-country, opting to be as close to wildlife as possible! They look for ways to support local businesses and organizations, many of which are associated with local nature preserves. Their Caribbean specialist is Gabriel Lugo, a native of Puerto Rico, and an expert in the birds of several Caribbean islands, including Cuba, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Trinidad, and of course, Puerto Rico!
Ryan Chenery was born and raised on Barbados and formed Birding the Islands in order to share with the world the phenomenally bio-diverse and breathtakingly beautiful islands where he has birded his whole life - the magical Lesser Antilles. He will get you to the very best sites to see the more than 40 endemic and near-endemic in this part of the Caribbean. You will get close to stunning and often critically endangered endemics like the Whistling Warbler in St. Vincent, the majestic Imperial Parrot in Dominica, the dazzling Purple-throated Carib and bemusing Gray Trembler on St.Lucia, the flame-breasted Montserrat Oriole on the “emerald isle” of Montserrat and rarest of them all, the gentle, unassuming Grenada Dove, still found serenely walking the pathways in the only area of suitable habitat remaining on the spice isle of Grenada.
Carefree Birding’s philosophy is to have fun. Their excursions are slow-paced, physically easy, and fun-filled. On select cruises, they invite expert birding guides to join you. They also arrange birding field trips with local environmental non-profits at each port of call and 100% of the money collected for the tours will go to those local groups. Traveling with someone who is not a birder? No problem! There will be plenty of activities onboard the cruise ship and other shore excursions available to keep everyone happy.
