Kayaking on Bonaire

Kayaking on Bonaire is a great experience. The Caribbean Sea on the west coast is calm and ensures a safe and pleasant kayak trip. You can rent a kayak yourself and go out. Single and double kayaks can be rented at the water sports centers.

You can also participate in an organized tour. The organizations that offer these tours will take you to the most beautiful places and provide you with extra information and explanations. Sometimes kayak trips are combined with snorkelling trips.

The tours in the mangrove forest are very impressive, but sea kayaking is also very popular. Especially at the Washington Slagbaai National Park in the north of Bonaire there are fascinating locations at the coast for sea kayaking.

Mangrove forest

The mangrove vegetation of Lac Bay in the southeast of Bonaire is the breeding ground for maritime life in the Caribbean Sea near Bonaire. This protected nature reserve is unique in the region and is also an important breeding ground for many exotic birds. The mangrove forest therefore represents a very high ecological value.

It is only possible to explore the area with a kayak under expert guidance. These kayak tours are offered on a limited basis in order to minimize the pressure on the vulnerable ecosystem of the mangrove forest.

Around Bonaire with a kayak

Some people go for the big adventure and sail with a canoe around Bonaire. This is not easy to do and certainly not suitable for inexperienced kayakers. Especially on the east side of Bonaire the Caribbean Sea is particularly wild and dangerous.

In 2012, two European Dutch boys dared to embark on the adventure. Robert Verspui and Joost Bienenmann sailed around the diving island in 3 days. On average, they were sailing 12 hours a day. The young adventurers have seen hundreds of different species of reef fish swim under their canoes, watch sea turtles gasp, see birds diving for fish, see iguanas diving from the rocks into the sea, etcetera. In beautiful places they also left their canoes to go snorkeling or to go freediving to the bottom of the ocean.

Type of kayaks

There are two types of kayaks: the sit-in type and the sit-on-top type. Experienced kayakers use the sit-in type, but beginners can better go on with the sit-on-top type. In both categories you also have single or double kayaks.
