A five minute walk from the Cruise Ship port brought us to the waterside restaurant and bar where the Good Returns water taxi docks. A friendly staff greeted my family and welcomed us aboard. We rented snorkel gear (mask and snorkel only, no fins available) for $5 each and waited for the remaining passengers to board. It was about a... More

Can only say good things about the Good Return ferry service on Bonaire. First thing to say was that having spoken to a very helpful lady at the kiosk on the cruise ship quay, she radioed to the ferry to ask them to wait for us. Helpful and knowledgeable crew told us all about Klein Bonaire and the snorkeling possibilities.... More

I was concerned as we had a very early port day, so I contacted Good Return Bonaire. Monica Promptly emailed me back with the assurance that they start running early they begin their water taxi early. Monica and her husband recently invested in this water taxi. They were a delight and the snorkeling on Klein Bonaire complete exceeded our expectations.... More

Great friendly couple running the water taxi. We went out to Klein Bonaire and they provided good advice on how to do the drift snorkeling, as well as many other tips and ideas. Note, the tourist office incorrectly said all taxi's are booked by the cruise ships when they are in, but Good Return water taxi is always available and... More

This company has been recently taken over by some enthusiastic people who are keen to share local knowledge. We took the Water Taxi to Kleine Bonaire and on the instruction of the owner, walked along the shore, up current and drifted slowly down the external reef edge having crossed the reef crest at a marked gap. The snorkelling was fantastic... More

We took the Good Return water taxi to Klein Bonaire. They had us drop off our things on the island by No Name Beach and then dropped us off for an amazing drift snorkel over the the beautiful reefs of Klein. The snorkeling lasted over a hour and then we enjoyed another three hours on the island basking in the... More

The boat is new, clean and well suited for the task. The captain was kind enough to depart as scheduled with only my wife and I on board. Knowledge of local currents was shared to ensure our snorkel drift was safe. Out of 12 world-class snorkel spots we have visited this had the best views and the lowest boating cost.

Highly recommend Good Return Bonaire, and my sincere appreciation goes to Captain Gerrie F. If you arrive by ship, just a couple of hundred meters on the shore, by Karels Beach Bar, you'll find the Water Taxi that will take you to Klein Bonaire for a unique snorkelling experience and for a very decent price ($20 return ticket - you...

Used this ferry to get to the nature reserve island off Bonaire. 10$ cheaper than the small alternative and a nice proper boat. Captain very helpful . This service deserves custom.
