During the boatride to the fishing area you will enjoy including a wide range of birds and the Profusu Dolphins.You will be fishing from the boat at different hotspots between the estuary of the Commewijne river and the Braamspunt beach which is in the estuary of the Suriname river.

The most advantageous way to pay is cash or by bank* in Euro.
Followed by cash in SRD or U$D, then POS in SRD * and finally a credit card payment **.

* If there are any additional bank charges, these should be paid by the customer. If it turns out that not the full agreed amount is credited to our account, the difference should still be paid before participating or checking in.

** When using POS (our machine only excepts SRD) we will use the daily exchange rate of the cambio’s. As these sometimes differ significantly from the rate your- and our bank uses, you can come out worse between 10% and 30% (in this Orange Travel has no benefit, yet influence).
