The Mangrove Information Center is an excursion center. Visitors to the center learn about the mangroves, one of the most unknown and most endangered environments on our planet. The Mangrove Information Center offers guided kayak and solar boat tours through the beautiful mangrove forest of Lac Bay on Bonaire's western coastline. Meet the enthusiastic and knowledgeable crew who will take you out on a guided tour by either kayak or solar boat. The center has single or double "sit-on-top" kayaks, easy to handle, especially for beginners. The solar boat has an electric-driven outboard so there's no noise and no pollution! Elly Albers

Unique opportunity to enjoy a completely novel ecosystem in the Caribbean. Take the 2-hour tour with the snorkeling. Watch out for mosquitos.

I did a Friday afternoon 2 hour tour with Lucky Luke and it was a great experience. Very informative, fun and not "touristy". There were only 3 of us along with Luke that day, so we were able to visit small channels in the mangroves...More
