Kayak tour

The mangrove is also known as the 'nursery'. Unravel the significance during your holiday in Bonaire on a kayak tour through the mangrove. See the areas largely covered in seagrass, which serves as a filter keeping the water clear. Besides providing crystal clear water, eelgrass is an important environment for marine animals such as baby rays, lobsters and baby seahorses. Want to see these animals up close? Then opt for a kayak tour including snorkelling.


Besides kayaking, discover the stunning underwater world while snorkelling. In the mangrove, you stand a good chance of seeing many different tropical fish and even turtles. However, snorkelling with fins is not allowed. This can damage the ecosystem and the mangrove.
