Overview

Windows to the Sea Kayaking and Snorkeling is a small, unique tour guide business, who provide kayak tours in Bonaire's marine park. Windows to the Sea Kayaking started in the year 2000 and are using the original clear bottom kayaks. Enjoy a variety of kayaking tours on high quality cushy, lumbar support seats. We offer snorkeling with all of our tours. Special is the mangrove 2 stops snorkel tour, were we kayak and snorkel in the mangroves, were we can see a lot of fish, beautiful coral and sponges and on our second snorkel stop where the turtles swim. Bonaire mangroves are listed on the Ramsar Treaty, an internationally protected area were it is only possible to kayak with a guide. For snorkeling we provide top of the line snorkeling gear. Let us transport you in our 14-person open safari bus while you view Bonaire’s unique landscape, and spot the flamingo's. We also pick up from the cruise ships. Enjoy ice cold beverages, fruit and munchies and our famous, "Dutch Stroopwafel"!

This tour is not on the main tourist circuit, and that's a shame for those who miss it. This nature ecosystem is really unique and so is the whole tour. Highly recommended.
