    View the bountiful sea life in Bonaire Marine Park from the comfort of a glass-bottom boat, one of the easiest ways to glimpse the wonders below the water’s surface without the need to get wet!


    Depart from the pier and from the comfort of a 32-foot glass-bottom boat, you will enjoy a spectacular look at the underwater wonders in Bonaire National Marine Park. Just settle into a shaded seat and look through the window that runs down the center of the vessel.


    The waters here are teeming with marine life because the park was one of the first in the Caribbean to ban activities that damage the environment. In the 1960s, legislation was enacted to protect sea turtle eggs and nests. In the 1970s, spearfishing was banned, and it became illegal to remove coral. As a result, Bonaire Marine Park contains spectacular coral reefs that support a huge diversity of fish and other marine species.


    Your window into the wonders below will offer a view that continuously changes, as the boat slowly motors over one spectacular reef after another. While there is no telling what will what come into view, you can expect to see stands of elkhorn and staghorn coral, graceful sea turtles, and a dazzling spectrum of colorful fish that may include grunts, wrasses, goatfish, parrotfish and tangs. If you’re not sure of the exact marine species, just ask the naturalist onboard or refer to the fish identification chart on board.


    After spending approximately 75-minutes navigating the amazing waters of the marine park, you’ll return to the pier.

    Zip through Placencia Lagoon on a wave runner leaving a rooster tail in your wake and the mainland in your rear view mirror. After watching a short orientation video that will help maximize the experience, you will hop aboard a wave runner and tear off across the lagoon. The ride will be exhilarating from start to finish. To ensure that you see all the sights, a guide will lead the way with the wave runners following more or less caravan-style. The numerous mangrove-rimmed islands that you will spot scattered about are well-protected, as their ecologically important trees filter impurities from the water and stabilize the shoreline. The lagoon’s water is typically smooth enough so you can easily carve your way across the surface without encountering any wakes other than your own.

    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Tear across the typically smooth waters of Placencia Lagoon in a wave runner.
    • Enjoy an exhilarating ride and gorgeous natural scenery in every direction.
