After two years we decided to experience the amazing nature of Bonaire once again with Tina. She passionately told about mangrove and has given us a fantastic day.

“Kayak and snorkel trip through the mangroves”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

It doesn't matter what brings you to Bonaire.. you should do this when you're there. Best spent money for a few hours of good fun, visiting the amazing mangroves and all under the brilliant supervision of Tina. She really knows a lot about the mangroves and is happy to share it with you. The snorkeling in the mangrove channel is amazing.. the amount of fish and sponges is wow! And afterwards we enjoyed a wonderful snack/lunch with a lot of fresh fruit, drinks and homemade cookies.

“super”

we had a great tour, guided by Tina. She showed us so many fish and other animals/creatures that live in and among the mangrove and had lots of information about them. Her enthousiasm was great (and cute!). Hope to see you again!

“Another great kayaking experience in the mangroves”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

Visiting Bonaire this past July (my eighth visit) I decided to take a break from diving and took another kayaking trip with Tina Lindeken of Windows to the Sea Kayaking and Snorkeling. Like my trip last year (reviewed previously), the experience was a lot of fun and informative at the same time. Tina is very enthusiastic about the mangroves and the wildlife found within this area. Her knowledge can only be described as encyclopedic and she has a real knack for being able to spot birds and fish that you or I would most likely overlook.

If you are interested in an enjoyable trip through a truly fascinating area that is vital to marine life consider kayaking with Tina. You'll have a very informative trip and get some exercise at the same time!

“Fabulous Tour”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

We went on the mangrove kayak tour with Tina in June and had a wonderful time. We went on a few different excursions that are highly rated during our time in Bonaire and this tour was our favorite! The kayaking was so peaceful and relaxing and we were able to see things during this tour that we've never seen during mangrove trips in other islands. Tina did a great job of explaining about the mangroves and sea life and she made sure everyone felt safe and comfortable. We would highly recommend this tour! And the snacks and drinks at the end were just perfect. I'm still thinking about the fruit kabobs and yummy chocolate oatmeal cookies.
