Mangrove Boating Eco-Adventure
Discover mangrove forests with an experienced guide as you gently glide through the crystal-clear waters of the National Park at Lac Bay. These sheltered mangrove canopies, declared a National Park Preserve by the Bonairean government, can only be visited with a trained guide. These are the nurseries of the coral reefs and create essential breeding grounds for birds. Your boat trip takes you through shallow waters, slipping through narrow canals, making it possible to see a great deal of marine life right from the boat. This is a noise-free experience aboard an electrically powered boat. With room for only eight people, it is an exclusive experience.
Bring a towel, hat, insect repellent and sunscreen. Minimum age is 6 years. Maximum weight is 250 lbs. Guests with mobility limitations, leg injuries, chest injuries and/or recovering from surgery are not allowed to participate. There are steps at the Mangrove Centre. National Park laws prohibit the building of docks and piers; you will step into the boat directly from the water. Wear footwear that you don’t mind getting wet. The boat embarkation area can be wet, muddy and slippery.
