The benefits of glass-bottom kayaking will be very clear to you as you take in spectacular views of the marine life above and below the crystalline waters surrounding Mystery Island.
Your day of sun and fun starts when you meet an experienced guide and take a moment to go over paddling instructions for your two-person glass-bottom kayak. Before you know it, you're off into the calm, shallow waters gliding effortlessly over a spectacular display of colorful marine life.
Enjoy a 90-minute paddle, suitable for all skill levels, kayaking over the coral reefs that surround Mystery Island. Along the way, your guide will point out local sea life and landmarks and introduce the history of the islands.
Your destination is a secluded stretch of white-sand beach -- an exquisite snorkeling location for snorkelers of all experience levels. If you've never snorkeled before, this area is the perfect spot to introduce yourself to some phenomenal underwater sights.
Pull your kayak right on to the sandy beach, and moments later you will be slipping into the warm water with your snorkel gear and enjoying the breathtaking corals and the rainbow-hued tropical reef fish. This area is a designated Marine Reserve Park; fishing is not allowed, ensuring it stays a real-life aquarium. If you're lucky, you may spot a green turtle.
Afterwards, relax on the beach, take a swim or hand-feed the tropical fish before kayaking back along the scenic route to the pier.
