This was my first time on a sail boat and I could not have picked a better company to sail with. Wim,Guys and Nonni,did an excellent job of making sure we were comfortable. They always had drinks and light snacks available for the sail out. Once arriving at Klein Bonaire the snorkeling portion was amazing. Once back on board the... More

While planning our trip to Bonaire, we wanted to take the dinner cruise with the Compass and we're looking forward to the experience it offered. We were not let down, Wim and Guss served delicious snacks and dinner. Guss took us snorkeling, pointing out unusual fish, and for dessert we had a school of dolphins swimming with the boat in...

We had a great afternoon with Wim & Guus while sailing (and having dinner on the boat). Maybe the price is a bit high but the atmosphere is cool, the BBQ is tasty and if you’re lucky you have good company from the rest of the guests. We had a very windy and cloudy day, perfect for sailing but less... More

The captain says all snacks and food are home made, but it's NOT home made, everything is pre-made and pre-marinated and bought at a supermarket. If you do only the snorkeling tour(excl. Meal)it will cost you $35. So everybody that does the dinner at sea tour is charged basically $40 for a meal, when in reality 1 person pays for... More

We booked a sunset sail and BBQ with Wim for our 25th anniversary, with three friends. From the moment we walked onto the dock near the Compass we felt welcomed. Wim sailed an hour out, we snorkeled near Klein Bonaire for an hour and then an hour eating a wonderful BBQ meal prepared on board, and an hour back into... More

We actually went sailing with Compass (capain: Wim) twice this summer because it was such a nice experience. The perfect weather+wind and moon, great sea, good snorkeling conditions were of course outside our or Wim's control, but the quality of the trip also dependent very much on other things. For starters the very personal interaction between the captain, his assistant... More

Capt. Wim and crew of one Nonnie (who conversed beautifully with everyone in Dutch, English and Spanish!) were very welcoming and worked to ensure everyone was comfortable....serving a steady stream of drinks and snacks during the sailing. At anchor at Andrea dive spot for some snorkeling and then a delicious dinner....turns out he is former chef from Holland who on... More

My Wife & I have no sailed 4 times with Capt. "Wim" on his "Sunset, Sailing, Snorkling, Dinner Cruise. Fantastic. The sail was relaxing, and the snorkling at Klien Bonaire was OUTSTANDING. 3' Rainbow Parrott Fis, and several Turtles. Fish of all types. All of this in 3'-8- of water. The other outstanding feature is the Bar-B-Que dinner. Variety and... More

We've enjoyed one of the incredible sunsets at Bonaire with this cruise. They charge USD 75 per person for a trip which starts at 3 PM until 7.30 PM. For this amount they serve an open bar and a very good BBQ! They took us to the "Andrea" diving spot for some snorkeling and afterwards served the BBQ. All in... More
