Overview

The Mangrove Information Center is an excursion center. Visitors to the center learn about the mangroves, one of the most unknown and most endangered environments on our planet. The Mangrove Information Center offers guided kayak and solar boat tours through the beautiful mangrove forest of Lac Bay on Bonaire's western coastline. Meet the enthusiastic and knowledgeable crew who will take you out on a guided tour by either kayak or solar boat. The center has single or double "sit-on-top" kayaks, easy to handle, especially for beginners. The solar boat has an electric-driven outboard so there's no noise and no pollution! Elly Albers

Kayaked and snorkeled. The guides were very knowledgeable. The only negative would be that there should have been one or 2 less boats. Was crowded when trying to snorkel. Wear your sunscreen and be prepared to used your arm power but all in all was...More
