Fantastic place to dive, especially for new divers. I love the attention to the environment and ensuring that preservation of the reefs is of paramount concern.

This isn't a traditional marine park as literally the entire coast of Bonaire out to a 200ft depth is the marine park, but it's all gorgeous and includes tons of world-class diving/snorkeling that you can often access by just walking out into the water from...More

Best snorkeling in Caribbean.. Use Woodwind tours for a great experience if you are staying for a week in Bonaire or are only there for a day off a cruise ship. We loved it and can't wait to go back.

Congratulations to everyone involved in preserving this area. It looks like it did 20 or more years ago. The world should follow Bonaire's example.
