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!

Diving is one of the main atractions of Bonaire. Diving Paradise?.? Not entirely. The acces of many divespots is to difficult and dangarous . Just remove some rocks , make a ladder , and it can be much safer.

A peaceful, relaxing atmosphere in Bonaire. Beautiful water, beautiful island. Particularly enjoyed visiting at the donkey rescue center. The sweet lady in charge of this fantastic endeavor was full of stories of her beloved donkeys. Beautiful island and I want to return to this paradise

The fact that someone had the vision, as early as they did, to protect the whole reef system of Bonaire is impressive and shows wherever one dives on Bonaire. Be warned, when they say shore entry it means shore, not pretty sandy beach wander in entry. The beaches are dead coral or volcanic entry. Some are ladders, others concrete slabs. Just make sure you have good (really good) footwear for the entries. I wore Keens ( no issues) and unfortunately my wife wore Aqua socks. We clipped them to my BC while we dove. If you have open backed fins make sure you have solid bottom boots. Once in the water the diving is second to none! 1000 steps, oil slick, salt pier, buddy’s reef, Karpata all amazing night or day. We dove forest and one other on Klein; pristine!! No dive is challenging, mild currents, little to no chop, unlimited visibility just too much to look at! We will be back!

You need a truck with good shocks to travel through this park. It is natural and there are many sites to see. The roads are rough, lots of ruts on the main road but that is part of the charm. It is untouched beauty. We saw flamingos and wild donkeys, beautiful hidden beaches, lots of lizards and were able to explore some of the stops throughout the park. You need about 3-4 hours if you want to explore a little. The park closes at about 5 so arrange your time accordingly.
