89 reviews
Our mangrove glass bottom kayak &amp; 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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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!

It was impossible to miss Fort Oranje coming off the cruise boat to get to the Bonaire Cruise Market and walking through downtown Kralendijk. Some great views overlooking the ocean and the architecture of the buildings. There were a couple of courtyards where my daughter and I sat down to enjoy the trees and the chirping of the birds in the hot hot sun! Not that Fort Oranje is a must thing to see, but if you’re in the vicinity, why not check it out!?

An old fort with some cannons and a lighthouse, it's a nice photo op and has history behind it. Never seems to be open.

Fort Oranje: it’s not that you can see a lot, but you can go in, get cool pictures with the canons pointing towards the ship – walk partly up on a tower, if you don’t mind that the stairs are free-standing.

It looks beautiful and historical. We didn't go inside, just looked outside. Very beautiful place, near the cruise terminal.

Like the cannons and lighthouse. A lot of history here. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it but if you are on the waterfront check it out.
