A small group of less than 30 people in three groups on a guided snorkeling tour in the channel between Klein Bonaire an Bonaire; drift snorkeling from a small catamaran at two locations. Viewing turtles and many types of fish over reefs up to 50 foot in depth extremely clear water. After the second session we were served a delicious lunch on-board the catamaran while returning to the dock. Read Less

We took a taxi to Sorobon Beach (the local tourist booth recommended it as a beach with easy water entry and they were very accurate. We rented a lounger (and were given a free chair for me) at the beach bar (very pleasant and helpful). Their washrooms were clean. Water entry was flat and easy. There was some broken coral in the shallows near shore (if you have water shoes bring them) but once you got out a bit more out, it was lovely sandy bottom and shallow water that extended far out into the bay. We had a lovely day there. Read Less

This 3 hour tour was great! Was small group and we used a double kayak which was very stable. Going through mangroves was beautiful and also got some good exercise in open water area.

They have an open air tour and gave us an excellent tour even though we were the only 2 people that wanted to go, they still took us over the whole north side which we had not seen before.

Again we brought our snorkeling gear, caught a cab for $5pp one way and went to Sorobon Beach at La Toc, to Jibe City. I rented a windsurfer and my husband enjoyed the nice padded lounge chairs on the water next to the restaurant/bar. You have neve seen a view this incredible! You could walk almost one mile out and it was never more than waist deep in the brightest clear Aqua water you've ever seen! It was $30 to rent a board for one hour but at 55 I only lasted 35 minutes! Great work out for sure! Read Less

We took a taxi to Luc Bay. The water is amazing, you can walk for ages and it's only waist deep. Saw lots of wind surfing lessons. Good local beer.

Typical Caribbean island like St Lucia and St Kitts. No desire to visit again. I saw some really cute clothes at Chez and had Lynn try them on. But the zipper on one shirt and the belt on a pair of shorts broke right off as she was trying them on. I tried on a Cariloha shirt, but had to go to a XXL, which was still tight. Salesman said it’s because they sell them in European sizes, which means kids sizes to Americans. We booked a tour with Luc Bosma (Bonaire Photo Shoot) for the afternoon on our way back to the boat for lunch. $50.00 (includes both of us) for a 1 ½ hour tour of the southern part of the island. The island tour was okay – typical of most Caribbean islands. We saw the salt pools and salt hills where salt is “mined” from seawater. We also saw the slave cabins from the former salt plantations. The slave quarters were very tiny. I could not stand up in one. I had to get on my hands and knees to enter and exit. At least the doorway faced the sea so they could get a breeze. Sorobon Beach Resort was a bar with lots of wind and kite surfing. This is the only beach worth going to on Bonaire and it’s not a good beach. Diving is also very big there, plus hiking the jungle in the northern part of the island. We had some sunburn on our face, so Lynn wanted to buy some aloe. We found a vendor at the pier who sold Bonaire aloe and we bought $100.00 worth. Turns out this was a complete waste of money. The aloe didn’t do anything for our sunburn. We bought some Australian Gold Moisture Block Tan Extender on the boat and it was a miracle worker. It helped keep our tan. The aloe was worthless. Australian Gold is stealing my business away from decades of using Panama Jack products. Bonaire is not worth a visit unless you’re diving or hiking. Read Less

This is my new favorite island. It reminded me of how Aruba used to be 30 years ago. We went to Spice beach where they charge you for a chair or cabana. It wasn't too crowded when we got there and the variety of fish were unbelievable! You walk out ontop of a reef (rocky) and then there is a 6 foot drop off...under where you just jumped off is where the fish are. Easy access and cheap taxi ride ($2.50 each). There is a bar and bathroom. There was a restaurant but wasn't open while we were there. Not alot of hawking of goods that you find on Mexican beaches..if you are looking for easy snorkeling this is your place! Read Less

Called the Tuk Tuk tour. They are open air large electric golf carts driven by a person who narrates as they go. It is only an hour but that is adequate since Bonaire is not developed of an island.

3.5 hours of fun! Love the Segway. Cruised the road along the beach and salt factory and slave home. Relaxing with plenty of pic ops and breaks. You can book this directly and save 1/2 of what we paid w/the ship. Owners are very nice and informative. We just didn't know about them before we booked with the ship. Still had a great time.

While this was another desert island, we did find the locals to be friendlier and a few shops with unique gifts. Went to the little island for some snorkeling.
