Transportation from the entrance to Boka Slagbaai is provided at 9:00 AM and 12:00 PM, with a return at 3:00 PM.
Don’t miss the grand opening of the new Save Our Sharks Room, with interactive exhibits.
At 10:00 AM, there will be a very special grand opening of STINAPA’s Save Our Sharks room, located in the park’s museum at the entrance. Within this special room, one can discover the sharks of Bonaire, uncover fossil shark teeth in the Shark Tooth Dig, and learn about the sharks of the past, present, and future! Thanks to the generous support of the Nationale Postcode Loterij in the Netherlands, STINAPA, among others, is able to make a real difference in shark conservation in the Caribbean.
