I booked with Woodwind while on a cruise stop to Bonaire. I emailed the owner, Ulf, with several questions prior to the tour and he quickly answered all of them. I’m not a swimmer and not comfortable in deep water, but Ulf assured me that I would be fine on the tour. Although it’s always best if you can swim, it’s not necessary for this tour because all you have to do is float. Our guide, Isa, held my hand as I jumped into the water and held on until I was comfortable enough to let go. She and the other guide, Ebony, checked on me throughout the trip to make sure I was okay. They took great care to make sure everyone was properly fitted with masks and fins (they have prescription masks if you need them), and they even gave me a wetsuit after I said that I got cold on the first stop. They also have reef-safe sunscreen for you to use if you don’t have your own. Isa was very knowledgeable about all the sea life and gave us information about everything we saw. She even took our camera and dove down to get us some great pictures. After two snorkeling stops, we were served a delicious lunch (I believe they said it was a Surinamese dish), dessert, and all the drinks we wanted, including rum punch. The entire staff was incredibly nice and helpful. I’m really glad I listened to the reviews because this was the best excursion I’ve ever done. If I am ever back in Bonaire, I will definitely book with them again.

Used Woodwind for our snorkeling excursion while we were in Bonaire on a cruise. One of the best snorkeling excursions I’ve been on. Service was 5 stars from the moment we got on the catamaran to the time we got off. Extremely knowledgeable guides. Food and drinks whenever you needed/wanted them. We had a challenging day as it was extremely windy and they adjusted snorkeling spots to make it more enjoyable as the water was pretty choppy. Everything right down to the fact they had prescription goggles for people that have glasses. Always attentive to the experience you are having in and out of the water. Also we had a tight window for our port day in Bonaire and they were right on time and close to the port so no issues making it back on board. Would highly recommend them.

The Woodwind snorkel tour is excellent. They use a catamaran and sail over to Kleine Bonnaire. The entire experience is well done, good food, drinks, amazing sevice, all snorkel gear is proviced, including a wet suit or a skin if you need or want one,. The tour lasts about 5 hours with 3 seperate excursions onto the reefs. This is my forth year on the tour. I love it and it is a great value,

They only allow 18 guests which is great and their service is over the top!! They provide all snorkeling equipment. The goggles are prescription! My husband has never been able to really see when he was snorkeling so that was extremely exciting for him! They have everything you need including rash guards and wet suits if you want to use them. They give us drinks as soon as we set sail including water, soda, beer, wine and rum punch. We had cookies, orange slices and raisin bread (Dutch type) to snack on between our stops. We had 3 stops, each one a little different than the other and each one was about 45 minutes of snorkeling time. We were separated into two groups, each with an amazing guide that pointed stuff out and the boat kind of follows you while you snorkel so that it's easy to get back to it. They had us grab onto a rope to take turns getting back onto the boat and they take your flippers off of you instead of you having to hold on with one hand while taking flippers off! After our last stop they gave us a fantastic lunch followed up with cheesecake! They weren't stingy with the drinks at all either! It was a 5 hour glorious day for $85/person, which is incredible!
