Spent an afternoon with Dee & her crew on the Woodwind snorkeling on Klein Bonaire. This is an absolutely great way to spend time in the calm, clear waters of Bonaire getting close to turtles and all sorts of large & small reef fish and other reef critters. Dee and her crew treat every guest exceptionally well, have any snorkeling... More

The crew at Woodwind was very professional and efficient. They have all sorts of snorkeling shirts, suits, etc. for people to borrow, new masks that have the mask and breathing tube as one, and even offer a few prescription masks! There were 12 of us on board and they divided us into two groups to guide around Klein Bonaire's waters.... More

Dee was such a great tour guide. She personally took my daughter (age 5) in inner tube float and helped her snorkel during the entire trip. My daughter loved it! And I didn't have to attend to her, I could enjoy the snorkeling without having to worry about a thing. We all had a Blast!

The highlight of our vacation! The guides make you see so much more then you would see when snorkeling on your own... Thanks for perfect service and awesome experience!

We were on Bonaire so my husband could dive. I don't dive, so I needed something else to do. I'm not big on snorkeling, but I was interested in seeing the coral and fish and in sailing. Woodwind was a perfect choice. The best thing about it is the people--Dee and her crew (Natalie and Emma) were fantastic, as was... More

I can only echo the prior reviews and affirm the high rating. Dee was a total professional as was the rest of the crew. They took exceptional care of everyone for every minute of the trip. We snorkelled three sites, all of Klein Bonaire. They were amazingly beautiful - I saw so much marine life and the coral is magnificent.... More

Dedrie Pedersen with her crew provides their visitors with a superb service. They go out of their way too make you feel comfortable as a visitor. Their knowledge of the Bonairean reef is very profound. Finally they work very good with each other. We will return to snorkel again with Woodwind.

I had snorkeled in the South Pacfic, and thought nothing in the Caribbean could compare, until we snorkeled Bonaire. It was a perfect, nearly windless day in March, and we went to 3 locations to snorkel. The first stop was a place that Dee (as well as other guests on the catamaran who have gone out before) said was not... More

I thoroughly enjoyed this excursion. I am a very experienced snorkeler and led such activities in Hawaii. This guys did great! Excellent briefing for beginners, good gear, very informative and attentive guides in the water. I saw completely different corals than in Hawaii, and many variations on the fishes. I wil do this again!

The host is indeed rude. The boat is totally packed with people sitting butt to butt on top of the cabin. There is no shade. This is a long trip for no shade in the tropics. People were draping their towels over their legs for relief. I believe the good reviews are because the snorkeling in Bonaire is so great... More

You base your review on a phone conversation with one of our booking agents and observation from a distance….! How TripAdvisor let this review pass is a mystery.
