Definitely take a boat to Klein (either a water taxi or a dive boat). The waters around Klein provide some of the best snorkling/diving in Bonaire. You don't want to come to Bonaire and not take the short trip to Klein.

A little deserted taste of paradise, whatever dive site you choose you are sure to see a wealth of marine creatures. A good guide will surely help you enjoy your adventure. Snorkelling or scuba the choice is yours....

Do yourself a favour ....hire a boat from Bonaire Boat Rental and go and explore this place. It is such great fun, your moor up at one of the floating anchor sites, and jump into the water and snorkel away. The water is so crystal clear, the sand is white as snow and there is no one around. What an... More

Wonderful dive! So much to see underwater. Great visibility. There were trunkfish, banded butterfly fish, Four eye butterfly fish, Spotted drummer fish to mention a few. Great for an afternoon dive.

liked the boat trip and reef, tip take two towels one for drying and the other to shield from the sand in the air, because the wind can be hard

Klein is a short boat ride from Bonaire. Very gentle trip across protected waters. Bonaire does a great job of protecting the reefs.Lots to see at any depth.

Small island with diving around the shores. Beyond that, why go over there!!!! More to do on an island drive and sit and watch the Flamingo's stand around on one leg. You pay someone to take you over and for what? Stay on Bonaire and go diving, then more diving and then an evening at Buddy Dive Resorts bar with... More

Our last full day, so NO diving. My Husband and I did the Klein Bonaire drift snorkel. We took the 10:30 water taxi from Eden Beach. They stop at “No Name” Beach, you drop off your stuff (we packed lunch, drinks and towels). Then they taxi you down the island and you get into the water and drift snorkel down... More

Klein Bonaire is the uninhabited island a half-mile from Bonaire, accessible by water taxi, kayak, or other boat. I'll say it again: it's uninhabited. That means no people live there, and that means, in this case, there are no facilities. This suits me just fine - I went there to drift snorkel from one end to the other - but... More

On the land: pristine beach, white sand, and some places to hide from the intense sun In the water: long stretch of reef, some of it sticking out, most in about 5 ft of water, then steeply descending into the Deep Blue. Simply magnificent. Bring a simple underwater camera, or you'll regret that you didn't. Warning: no concession stand, or... More
