About
Our mangrove glass bottom kayak & 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. 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. 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!

First time kayaking and will go again soon!
Oct 2021 • Couples
Great opportunity to combine kayaking with snorkeling. We missed our pick up and the guide was gracious enough to circle back for us which we greatly appreciated. We were first time kayakers and it did take a little time to get used to how to maneuver but I think we did pretty awesome! Matt was our guide and he was great. Snorkeling in the mangrove tunnel we saw tons of corals, clams, fish and jellyfish.

Unique kayak experience

We had a great time kayaking and snorkeling in the mangroves. Quite a unique experience. Our guide, Eddy was really funny and knowledgeable. It is obvious he loves his job and it makes the tour more enjoyable.

Amazing guide! Amazing scenery! Had a blast!
Feb 2020 • Friends
Eddie was a fantastic guide and very passionate about protecting the mangroves and the ecosystem. You can tell he loves what he does! He was well versed and I learned a lot about Bonaire!
Good amount of kayaking with some maneuvering involved so I would recommend this trip to people who are more active.
Highly recommend this tour and will definitely do this again when we return to Bonaire!
Thanks again Eddie!

Must do when in Bonaire
My boyfriend and I had a great experience with Royal Tours. Doesn’t matter which provider you choose, Eddy or her, they all work closely together and offer the same tour/experience. We had a lot of fun kayaking through the mangroves, learning a lot about Bonaires nature and snorkeling through a mangrove tunnel at the end. That was definitely my highlight.
I can only recommend this tour when visiting Bonaire.

Great Tour Guide!
Feb 2020
This tour was excellent. We had a large group, and the majority of the group had never kayaked before. Our tour guide Eddie and his partner were very helpful and made sure everyone was safe and had a good time. Eddie was a great guide and made the trip fun and relaxing. Snorkeling through the mangroves was even more interesting than snorkeling the reef. Also, the length of the tour was just right. We got a little exercise and enjoyed the beautiful scenery.

Fun excursion!
Feb 2020 • Couples
We've visited Bonaire many times, but we had never kayaked in the mangroves before. We decided to do this tour! We had a fun time, and both Eddy and Milton are wonderful guides. Eddy knows much information about the island, and Milton is very helpful and hard-working. They picked us up, and stopped along the way for us to take pictures of flamingoes and wild donkeys.

Awesome experience
Feb 2020 • Couples
We went on this tour in Bonaire as we were on a Caribbean cruise holiday. We were a little late but Edward very kindly came back to pick us up. The bus journey there is a bit bumpy in the roads so just be prepared for that. However it is worth the journey. The mangroves are awesome and the experience of kayaking round them and snorkelling there is great. There is water and rum punch included too. Edward really knows his stuff and was a great guide. The only improvement would be to perhaps explain a bit to guests about the island while driving there, just to learn a bit about the place. But we would definitely recommend this tour.
