When I was younger I did not understand the attraction of frequent return trips to the same place, but, here I am again. Over the years I've seen some changes in the Marine Park. One of the better changes has been the installation of effective...More

Be sure to buy your tag, Bonaire has great snorkeling! We saw many fish, eels and turtles. The tag is your permit and is a nominal fee to protect the reef for our future generations

A great way to see the beautiful nature of the island.you can take your own car and drive through the national park and stop at the many beaches. It also has very beautiful reefs for snorkeling and diving.

After beach diving on a previous visit to Bonaire, we decided to do boat dives. This enabled us to do most of our dives off Klein Bonaire. Visibility was wonderful and, as always, there was so much to see.

The diving off Bonaire is probably the most relaxing, easiest diving I do, my wife’s favorite location. Water temperature was 81-83 degrees. Visibility was generally very good at around 80 feet, sometimes a little less, sometime a little more. There was generally little to no...More

In two short weeks, we were able to dive at several of the dive sites - marked with the cute yellow rocks. All over the reef, there were amazing amounts of healthy fish, vibrant colorful corals and sponges. Bonaire is still unspoiled. Best reef I've...More

There's a sailboat that docks at Devi Bonaire. I don't remember the name of the operator; we didn't go. There are a couple outfits that take people out to Klein. And - there are a number of the marked dive sites that seem... More
