ShoreTrips says...

Of the ABC Islands, this is the least populated and the least developed. It has special appeal to those devoted to the sea as it is one of the best spots for diving and windsurfing. The south end of Bonaire is the flatest part of the island and is covered with salt pans, sand dunes and mangroves. It is amazing how different one end of the island is from another.

It is an interesting ride from Kralendijk, where the ships dock and most of the hotels are located, to the southern end of the island. No experience is necessary to kayak the mangroves and once you arrive at the location where the quiet waters will allow you a relaxing ride, you will get some instruction in handling your two-person kayak. You will have a little practice if indeed it is your first time kayaking and then, one following another, you will move inside the mangrove canals next to a beautiful bay.

Sometimes the clear water will be exposed to you and, at other times, you will see only a sea of greens. Because the group size will always be small, you can relish in the quiet. With a passionate local as your guide, you will learn about the mangrove sanctuary while gliding through bird habitats and fish spawning areas. You will see many of the hundreds of species of fish and birds that populate the sheltered labyrinths of the mangrove channels

You will have time for an optional snorkel if you wish before heading back to reality. Still, the return ride will have more meaning as you now understand more about the island and how it works.
