PlaceS of Interest Mangrove Kayak Tours Guided snorkeling and kayaking tours of Lac Bay’s pristine mangrove forests are offered from the Mangrove Information Center. In the bay, the clear shallow waters are perfect for both kayaking and snorkeling and offer visitors an opportunity to learn how the plants and animals have uniquely adapted to survive in their environment. The assortment of different sea grass makes the bay a fertile environment for a wide variety of species which include conch, juvenile reef fish, stingrays, lobsters and green turtles. For those less energetic, the center also offers tours on “Solar Boats”. Biking Photo Credit: Thad & Judy B. The island has a network of Cycle trails which include both paved and dirt roads.
