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.

We arrived in Bonaire on a cruise and rather than pay the high prices for tours onboard, we opted to take this water taxi across to Klein Bonaire. We bought tickets at the stall on the quay but you can just pay him on the boat also. The cost was $20 return per person. You catch the boat by Karels... More

We did the drift snorkel with Captain Gerry on one of the first days of our stay and we liked it so much that we went back and did it two more times. The pickup location is great - right downtown Kralendijk at Karels Beach Bar. From here he takes you over to Klein Bonaire where you can drop any... More

A rare inexpensive way to see Klein island and the beautiful reef. A short walk from the cruise ship port to pick up point at the waterside bar. Our skipper was friendly and offered to sell us the ferry service.If you are looking for a new lifestyle contact Gerry F. (+599) 788 8501. Klein island has no services so purchase... More

Used this service last week, disembarked Azura and Internally booked forst one that was at the port. Good sized boat (some of the islands you packed in like sardines). Told us we could drop our stuff on beach and he would drop us on the way back slightly offshore and we could drift back with snorkel gear... Loads of fish,... More

I wish I had been dropped off at the drift snorkel site and snorkelled to shore, but was slightly wary about leaving belongings on the beach unattended. This is an amazing little ferry to reach Klein Bonaire - a Caribbean paradise. Completely deserted with no touristy features at all - just powder white sands, azure blue sea and incredible snorkelling,... More

We got this taxi and on the way we were shown the best place to snorkel (which is crucial to get the best out of this island). Whilst we were there we watched snorkel tours from large cruise ships arrive at the beach, snorkel where there was nothing to see and go home again. We saw the best stuff for... More
