we expected something more interesting. the river is not deep at all, the boats (jangas) are very colourfull and nice, but the ride itself and eevn sea horses are not really intersting, if you do not do your own snorkling

We walked to the river during low tide just to walk across the "river" when there was no water. It was an unique experience to see the sand formation of the river bed. Didn't do the boat tour, so can't comment on that.
