先ずは一言でいえば『行ってよかった!』ですね。この景色を独り占めしながらの川下り。いやいや他に無いですよ。ガイドが集合場所の河原に一人いるだけで全て英語ですが、挨拶程度が出来れば問題なし。さて次は重要なポイントを書きますよ。集合場所はトイレだけがある野原です。到着するとちょっと不安がありますが、待つしかありません。川には多数のアリゲーターがいます。ガイドより先に進むことは危険ですよ。もしも川を泳いでいるアリゲーターの頭をコツンとやったら一大事。ガイドはちゃんと目を見張って教えてくれます。私は岩にいる5メートル以上のアリゲーターに見とれてしまい、気が付いた時には川の渦に入り込みあっという間にアリゲーターの岩に激突で、1メートル以内で止まってしまいました。タレントの出川さんでもここまでは近づかないでしょう。でも数秒後にはガイドが寄り添い、アリゲーターを刺激しないように誘導してくれました。まあ死ぬかと思いましたが良い思い出です。自然界でのツアーですので、看板もありますが何が起きても自己責任ですね。でも心配は無いと思いますよ。あんな大自然の中でも途中に人家もあり、ボートで魚釣りをしている現地の人も多数いました。おそらくアリゲーターは人を食べるのではなく、あちらも危険と感じたらアタックして来るだけだと感じました。危険を心配するよりも危険を楽しみながら大自然を満喫する人生を選択すべきだと確信したツアーでした。最高としか言いようがありません。イギリス人の老夫婦と一緒でしたが、おじいさんは二度も水中に落ちていましたが、川は浅いので全然問題もありませんでした。そんな水中に落ちても人間の様な巨体にはアリゲーターは寄ってきません。大丈夫!ぜひトライしてください。それと誰もいない現地解散ですので、行きのタクシーに迎えに来てもらうことは忘れずに。
