Took a boat to Klein. It was nice but no need to get on a boat to go out there. Pretty much the same diving. I think its better for snorkelers or beginner divers that don't want to go on their own or are having a hard time with shore dives.

We drift snorkeled here, the reef is beautiful and we saw many colorful fish. It is amazing how well they take care of the reef. You can easily access this island by water taxi or choose a vendor that are right outside the docks. I wish we had chosen the woodwind, will do so next time.

This was our second time to this beautiful island. Just a wonderfully quiet place. Husband likes to snorkel whilst I enjoy the peace and quiet. The sea is crystal clear - clean and ecologically well managed. We will return! We took the trip via Celebrity cruises. For bird lovers - you will be in for a treat with some beautiful... More

Klein Bonaire is one of the very best places in the world to Snorkel. We came in on a cruise ship, and you see the water glowing as you're pulling into the port. From the cruise terminal it's a short hop on a boat to get to Klein. It's a must do. I've been to the "aquarium" in Bora Bora,... More

We went on a snorkel trip with SeaCow charters and had a great time. The fish and coral at Klein Bonaire are beautiful Klein Bonaire means little Bonaire. The whole island and the area around it are a marine reserve. People running SeaCow are very friendly and knowledgeable.

Although the diving from shore is fantastic on Bonaire, the short boat trip to Klein, just minutes off the coast opens a whole new world. Some of the sites are very similar to that see on shore, but much steeper with more diversity of sea life, coral and colors. Was amazed to see a 20 to 30 pound lobster and... More

Divers paradise. This trip some of the island reefs were covered in sand (rain storms), but others were if very good condition. Rarely have a bad dive on Klein.

We took the downtown water taxi, it was a short 20-25 min boat ride. Take water, snack, and sunshade of some sort. There is no service on the island, which is a good thing as it helps to keep the character of the island. The water is warm and clear, good snorkel.

I love this place. If I could choose one place in the Caribbean to stay forever, it would be on Klein Bonaire. I am not a snorkeler not even much of a swimmer, but the water is so clear and clean and warm a person can't resist getting in. Fish swim into the beach area from the reef and they're... More
