We almost missed diving Klein but the last boat trip of our stay took us to the dive site "Rock Pile" off Klein. One of the best dives ever, felt like I was diving in an aquarium! You have to make at least one dive off Klein while there.

Get the watertaxi from the city center of Kralendijk and in 20 minutes you'll be in a magic place where snorkeling is simply magic. The blue crystal water and the white sandy beach is the perfect place for a good visibility in the water and a perfect relax on the sandy island. The island is inhabited and no services are... More

We stayed on Bonaire for a week last month. The snorkeling on Klein Bonaire was good, but not mind-blowing. To be honest the $30 fare roundtrip for my husband and I hardly seemed worth it when most of the snorkeling could still be done on the mainland for free. Also, we visited during one of the windiest weeks EVER in... More

This is one of the finest snorkel spots in the world. The reef is alive with color and life and you will always see things that blow you away. A trip to Bonaire is not compelete without a day on Klein.

This was our forth trip to Klein and the 2011 hurricane took a toll. We are snorkelers and the shallow reef took a beating. Still lots of fish but lots of dead coral.

Snorkelling at Klein Bonaire is an absolute must. We went with the boat and guide leaving from Eden beach and it was absolutely worth it . The guide was just fantastic, diving in apnea to 15 meters to show us corals and fish, turtles, etc.. Great trip

A short trip from mainland Bonaire (we even saw a couple kayaking back). There are many dive and snorkel sites, so if one is taken there is sure to be another. There is nothing on the island so be sure to take all you need.

Wow! I have to start with wow! We (our party of ten including three grandmothers and five kiddos) took an excursion with the Carnival Valor to Klein. The water taxi ride was pleasant. The staff was friendly and informative. We rented snorkel equipment from them for $5 each. Upon disembarking we walked a short way down the beach to enter... More

Take a water taxi over ($15 R/T) from one of several operators. We spent two hours snorkelling which seemed to be plenty of time. There are no facilities/shops/shade on Klein Bonaire so come prepared. Well worth a visit!

We were in Bonaire on a cruise in early February 2015. We toured with both Woodwind(morning) and the Sea Cow (afternoon). The drift snorkel around Klein was awesome and super relaxed. We loved both tour operations but even more so we loved the fish and coral we saw while here. There were turtles and stingrays swimming by as well. If... More
