I booked this tour through emails exchanged by the company a few months back. The original snorkel/sailing tour was 3 hours long and my group and I wanted to do 4 hours. The man I spoke was more than happy to give us a four hour long, private sailing/snorkeling tour. I was a little nervous about the authenticity of these... More

We chartered Compass for a sunset snorkel and dinner and it was one of the most memorable and fun events of our trip. Wim and Marcel (sp?) were fantastic hosts. Casual, lots of laughs, excellent food and unhurried snorkeling. I can't recommend Compass highly enough! You can also sign on individually for their sunset BBQ tour. DO NOT MISS IT!!

Wim and his crew were very nice. Easy to find him right when we got off the ship. Took a taxi to his sail boat (it was very hot in the van, but thankfully a short drive) We sailed out to the snorkeling area which was probably about 45 min long and even got to see a tuna fish jumping... More

We got lucky and met a couple who had taken a ride on the Compass and went with them for a sail our first full day on the island, snorkeling at Klein Bonaire and then a magnificent meal right on the boat. The crew tended to our every beverage need and provided information about Bonaire and Klein Bonaire. It was... More

We chartered the boat for ourselves and EVERYONE had a wonderful time. Snorkeling with a guide was great because they saw and pointed - we were able to see several sea turtles, and the hugest stingray I have every seen. Timing was perfect, snacks were tasty. Wim and his staff were excellent hosts and I would recommend Compass Sailing to... More

Wim and Emma offer the perfect, relaxing sailing experience. Starting with a nice drink, then on the way to Klein Bonaire for a beautiful snorkelling trip led by Emma while a tasty barbecue meal was prepared by Wim. Wonderful food, nice drinks, good company and a beautiful sunset. I'd recommend this trip to anyone visiting Bonaire!

Wim and his assistant were the most gracious hosts. We found Wim waiting in his shade tent located just outside and to the left of the cruise pier. After a very short ride to sailboat docking area, we were taken on a very relaxing sail to view Bonaire. We stopped at a marine reserve to snorkel. Several, including my wife,... More

Had a great time on this tour. Wim and Emma took great care of us. We sailed to a wonderful snorkeling location and Emma brought her go-pro into the water and took pictures of all the beautiful fish and sea turtles that we saw. The water was so clear. After snorkeling we were treated to a wonderful lunch. Emma also... More

We just returned from a fabulous trip aboard the Compass. Captain Wllm and first mate Emma were wonderful. First we had a very pleasant sail to a snorkel site, saw plenty of beautiful undersea critters and then returned to the sail boat where Captain Wilm had prepared a fabulous meal (we learned and experienced he is a high-quality chef, both...
