Head along the banks of Commewijne River and past the plantations for a raft of colonial museums, lush parks, and restaurants. While water taxis are probably the easiest way to tour the river and its banks, energetic visitors can consider exploring on bikes--available for rent in town. Vistors have reported common dolphin sightings in the river's waters, so take a camera along and try to capture one on film. By using our Paramaribo tour planner, you can arrange your visit to Commewijne River and other attractions in Paramaribo.

We saw several dolphins during taking the ferry from Johan en Margaretha and Fort Nieuw Amsterdam. This was not the short ferry trip most people do.

Gorgeous place! A fine mix of historic, nature and culture.
Korjalen - Surinamese wooden motor boats can be hired for a reasonable amount from Leonsberg to visit Fort New Amsterdam or just to spend a couple of hours dolphin watching.
