Overview
Our mangrove glass bottom kayak & snorkel tour begins at the lovely beach from Lac Cai. The Bonaire Mangrove reserve is located in Lac Bay National Park. Visitors can only enter the mangroves in the company of an experienced nature guide. Your stable, glass bottom sit-on-top kayak is equipped with a comfortable backrest seat, a waterproof bag for your personal belongings and, of course, paddles. Off you go, into the calm waters.

The glass bottom kayak provides an ideal mode of transport in this beautiful and tranquil environment, as you manoeuvre with ease through the mangrove shallows and tunnels.

Gliding by four different species of mangrove trees in crystal-clear waters, paddling past bird habitats and fish spawning areas, you'll learn of the relationship between the plants and the animals. The snorkel location offers a great variety of marine life and is considered by many a must-do while visiting Bonaire!

I booked this activity after scuba diving 6 days before leaving the island. Our guide, Michelle did a great job of pointing out the variety of living things! Wonderful excursion!

Eddie was a fantastic guide and very passionate about protecting the mangroves and the ecosystem. You can tell he loves what he does! He was well versed and I learned a lot about Bonaire! Good amount of kayaking with some maneuvering involved so I would recommend this trip to people who are more active. Highly recommend this tour and will definitely do this again when we return to Bonaire! Thanks again Eddie!

My boyfriend and I had a great experience with Royal Tours. Doesn’t matter which provider you choose, Eddy or her, they all work closely together and offer the same tour/experience. We had a lot of fun kayaking through the mangroves, learning a lot about Bonaires nature and snorkeling through a mangrove tunnel at the end. That was definitely my highlight. I can only recommend this tour when visiting Bonaire.

This tour was excellent. We had a large group, and the majority of the group had never kayaked before. Our tour guide Eddie and his partner were very helpful and made sure everyone was safe and had a good time. Eddie was a great guide and made the trip fun and relaxing. Snorkeling through the mangroves was even more interesting than snorkeling the reef. Also, the length of the tour was just right. We got a little exercise and enjoyed the beautiful scenery.
