This is our 4th trip to Bonaire and we wanted to add to our Scuba trip with something relaxed and off the “beaten path”. Patrick and Linda were very accommodating about our time on their lovely sailboat. We had already been staying on Bonaire for a few days when Patrick picked us up. We chose two nights on the boat, and we sailed north toward Slagbaii National park on day one then south toward Salt Pier day two. After observing the Salt Pier from the land and diving this popular site, it was cool to see the structure from the sailboat. We were joined by dolphins following the boat for several minutes. The sunset was perfect as we enjoyed our charcuterie board with our feet dangling in the water. Bonaire is a beautiful island and to sail the coast, gives you a new feel of the island.
Patrick and Linda are easy to talk with and give you space to think and enjoy the scenery.
The sailboat is spacious, the bed comfortable, bathroom on board. We showered at the marina bathroom which was clean and safe. (Take your toiletries, towels provided)
After the crew left us on their romantic boat in the late afternoon we walked from the marina to LaBalandra Bar & Restaurant. We enjoyed a great meal on the water front. (We had made reservations.). The evenings spent alone together on the boat were peaceful, to chat about the day, and read our books. The marina is quiet with just enough activity for people watching and checking out some beautiful boats. We slept well with the stars clearly visible through the open hatch above the bed, ocean breeze and the gentle movement of the boat.
My husband and I have been on sailboats and are always amazed how the crew works the ropes and sails, Linda and Patrick work perfectly together, and make it look so easy (which I know it is not).
We are so happy that we spent two nights with SoloBon and we would definitely recommend.

Patrick and Linda are very capable sailors! We enjoyed a day sail that included snorkeling, sightseeing of the south end of the island including the Cargill salt works, and gourmet snacks and lunch. SoloBon’s is the perfect monohull sloop for a day sail in Bonaire in the trusty hands of its couple crew who are the owners!

Just a first rate experience from beginning to end. Captains Patrick and Lynda were absolutely fantastic hosts on their beautiful sailboat. My Wife and I were with our 2 boys (11 & 12) who love to snorkel, and knew from the positive reviews that we were with the right outfit.
The boat was conveniently located at the marina about a 2 minute drive from our Chogogo Resort - had we known it was that close, we would have walked (GPS made it look further). We arrived on time, and Captain Patrick was there to warmly greet us with a smile. As we got aboard we met Captain Lynda who let us know she had anything we needed to eat or drink. And, along the cruise, we enjoyed tasty wraps, beers and water for the boys.
The weather unfortunately was not great, with quite a bit of precipitation, but for the time of year was expected as a possibility. We had a most enjoyable day cruising and talking with our hosts, and hit 2 different dive sites around Klein Bonaire.
Overall, a fantastic day with Solobon, and one that I would recommend to anyone - with or without children.
Cheers Patrick and Lynda, it would be great to see you in Marco Island, FL some day!!

I got this amazing Mexican dinner sailing at sunset tour for my boyfriends b'day, and it was amazing! Linda and Patrick are so very kind and made the trip very pleasant. Nice drinks, good food, and of course, an amazing view! So nice to be sailing again and enjoy Bonaire from the water! Highly recommended!

We were very impressed with Captain Norman and his crew. He met us at our cruise ship port and drove us to his beautiful 45ft sailboat. From there our family of 12 enjoyed a 1/2 day sailing excursion with two snorkeling stops. The snorkeling was amazing! They pampered us with food and drinks and were very attentive to our every need. Even our 76 year old folks snorkeled and were comfortable on the boat. It was a very memorable day!

We did a private sail with Captain Norman and First Mate Mark while in Bonaire two weeks ago. A wonderful sail around Klein Bonaire with a beautiful snorkel break. We dodged showers and found the sun in time to snorkel at 1000 Steps. Appetizers, beverages and brisk winds made for a terrific way to spend the morning. We highly recommend SoloBon to all!

What a great, private sailing and snorkeling tour! What a friendly crew! Linda, Daphne, and Marco did a WONDERFUL job showing us around the island, sharing fun facts, and providing snorkeling tours for an age group of 11-70. The heavy snacks throughout the tour were perfect for a day in and out of the water. They had shade on the back of the sailboat for a quick escape from the sun while still enjoying all the sights. Highly recommend!

We had an absolute blast with the SoloBon Crew! It was abnormally windy but they made sure they gave us a great tour of the island with a ton of fun facts about Bonaire. We had 2 children with (7 & 9) and Linda made sure she had eyes on them while snorkeling, making sure to point out and share amazing facts about the fish and animals we saw. The toughest part was getting to their dock, but once we told the cab driver where to go he took us right up to the dock. They provided amazing snacks and drinks after snorkeling. 10/10 rating from all of us on the excursion. If they have an opening, BOOK IT! Very worth it. I should note I messed up in the original booking date, they were kind enough to help me with the fix and was able to reach out via WhatsApp with confirming the changes! Great customer Service and all around experience!

We had an incredible day sailing with Marco and Johan today. We were a group of 10 - two families with 6 kids ages 15 to 9. Marco and Johan were an excellent crew - incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about the area. They briefed us at each snorkel spot and Johan accompanied us spotting beautiful wildlife. We saw dolphins, a seahorse and a turtle. The food and drinks were bountiful and they continuously offered us refills. And important - The food is not a light lunch- Plenty of food from chicken and salmon wraps, to melon wrapped with prosciutto, to caprese skewers. It was and amazing day through and through.
