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

The colors are amazing, the sand super soft. It can't get better... Go for just a little bit and enjoy the true caribbean vibe. There is nothing in the island though: bring water, snacks, mask and snorkel, your tag and sun screen ;D Don't try to wander off in the island without guidance; you won't be the first one getting...

Just got back from a two week Caribbean cruise, did a lot of snorkeling. My highlight was Klein Bonaire aboard the Sea Cow. Henk and Gea made this a great snorkel experience. The reefs and fish are amazing there, I also got great photos of jellyfish and sea turtles, but their snorkel advice and the care and fun they give... More

Perfect! It's just a short 10 minute water taxi (easy to find and about $20 RT) from the port area of Bonaire over to Klein Bonaire. And couldn't ask for more for your day in paradise. Nothing to do here but soak in the sun on one of the best beaches with softest and whitest sand anywhere.....and absolutely some of... More

Went to Klein on a recent cruise. I have snorkeled many places and this is an excellent place to snorkel. So many fish, coral etc. There are no facilities on Klein, but such a great way to spend the day.

Several dives were done here, as well as the main island. Better or worse? Really about the same clarity-wise, less small fish, more larger fish, including spotted eagle rays. There is a stand of staghorn coral that is spectacular somewhere near "Nearest Point". We never really encountered too many people and while a popular snorkeler spot, it never felt overcrowded....
