Clear Bottom Kayak

Bonaire is a small island located just 50 miles off the coast of Venezuela and is known for its exquisite diving and snorkeling, and today ranks among the top snorkeling destinations in the world. The island also has one of the best preserved mangrove forests in the Caribbean, which makes it the perfect destination to explore the marine environment through your own clear bottom kayak.

Enjoy a personalized clear bottom kayak tour in Bonaire at the Lac Bay Mangrove Forest, home to three different species of mangrove trees, where you will travel through mangrove shallows and tunnels and across crystal clear waters.

You'll maneuver your kayak with ease in this beautiful and tranquil environment, paddling past bird habitats and fish spawning areas, while you learn of the relationship between the plants and the animals of this part of Bonaire. If you are lucky you may even be accompanied by baby rays, lobster, green turtles, and baby seahorses. Your kayaks are made of the highest quality with cushioned, lumbar support seats.

Follow your kayaking experience with a guided snorkeling tour at Lac Bay, the largest semi-enclosed bay in the Dutch Caribbean. Your helpful guide will provide top-of-the-line snorkeling gear, including fins, a vest, and a mask. Lac Bay is sheltered from pounding seas by a barrier reef. While you snorkel at its mangrove forests, you will see how its seagrass beds are the vital nursery for reef fish. If you are lucky, you may even spot the endangered queen conch, or a green turtle foraging in its grounds. The mangrove area of Lac Bay also provides nesting sites and safe havens for frigate birds, herons, flamingos, pelicans, and endangered ospreys. Book your spot on this unmissable nature tour on Bonaire today!

Great tour and guides

This was a wonderful excursion where we took a guided tour into the mangroves to see some beautiful sights, learn some facts about them, and then snorkel near them to see how much was going on underneath the roots. Great guides, great tour and beautiful island.

This was one of our favorite activities during the cruise. Our tour guide was fantastic. It was just the right mix of active, scenic, fun, and educational. Our entire party, from ages 6-40, LOVED it. Highly recommend!

The Kayak guide was excellent. Had never Kayaked thru mangroves and it was the perfect place to kayak. Ocean kayaking is okay but a lot of work. The mangrove portion is calm, smooth and beautiful.

If you desire an opportunity to snorkel and kayak in clear warm water, this is a fun excursion. The guides were fun, the water for snorkeling was waist deep if you worry about deep water, but I saw tons of fish and got to experience the mangrooves. It really was a highlight of my trip. I got some great pictures too of the village, ancient conch shell hills and enjoyed the drive to our launch area. Even got to brush up on my Dutch!
