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

Very nice and interesting for many of us. I only wish we had more time to see it all. Bring good walking shoes- not flip flops, ground is full of rocks and things that can hurt. Eat at Foodies near by to make it perfect.

We had an amazing trip with our guide Lucky Luke. His enthousiasm for the mangrove forest is contagious. Besides, he shares everything you would like to know about Bonaire. By making the trip you also support the protection of this nursery room for our oceans....More
