About
Hi, I’m Captain Jordan! I was born and raised here on Bonaire, and I was fishing and spending my time on boats since I was a child. I learned my skills from seasoned, local fishermen. Worked on a lot of boats first as a deckhand and slowly made a career in commercial sport fishing. This is my first privately owned boat, and I decided to pursue my passion for the ocean. I invite you to join me on this exciting adventure, and I will share my knowledge of the beautiful island of Bonaire with you!

Had the pleasure of Captain Jordan’s company and wealth of knowledge for both fishing and snorkelling trips whilst on family vacation. Whilst the fish didn’t always want to co-operate as planned, Captain Jordan’s knowledge of both fishing and the reefs around Bonaire could not be questioned and meant all trips were both enjoyable and productive. His passion for what he does carries through from his professionalism as Captain, fisherman and guide, right down to the cleanliness and condition of the boat and equipment.
Highly recommended.

I would leave 11 stars if I could! Jordan was amazing! We went fishing for our honeymoon, and it was truly such an incredible experience. The boat was perfect for me to relax on while my husband cranked in fish. Not only was the fishing amazing, the views, sandwiches, food, all of it was incredible and a 5 start experience. It felt like we were back home fishing with one of our good buddies. We even got to take the fish to a local sushi restaurant and have them sashimi it for us! We can’t wait to be back in Bonaire and set up even more trips with Jordan

Fishing with Captain Jordan was fun and relaxing. Jordan and his wife were able to book us on a trip despite us giving them very short notice. They were accommodating and professional. We targeted mainly queen snapper and wahoo. We didn’t catch a ton of fish this trip but were busy enough, in fairly rough seas to have a blast! Jordan is a hard worker and loves what he does.

We took a fishing trip with this lovely couple earlier this year, and we did not regret it! The Captain is a native, and a very skilled fisherman. The boat is nice and spacious, have to say much more spacious than I initially thought. They have all the right gear and also some handmade tools which we found very exciting! We caught some nice tuna, and they were kind enough to fillet it for us and let us have a great dinner! Highly recommend this company—they do it from the heart, and it shows!

We had friends over on island and wanted to do something new and fun together. We choose to book the trip to Washington Slagbaaipark. The Capt (Jordan) is born and raised on Bonaire and knows all there is to know about the Island, the sea and the fishes. This made it more than we expected from such a trip. Fishing, picnic, snorkeling, nice drinks for the ladies and the guys and more picnic. We had a nice sunset tour at the end and where exactly on schedule back for our diner plans. Although there is shade on the boat, don't get fooled... You still sunburn if you don't reapply suntan lotion. We where with 4 couples and had all te space that you needed to walk around, mingle and our personal bags and snorkel stuff. All good, we really enjoyed it and will do it again in autumn.

Oh, my goodness! This day on the water was just what we needed! Jordan and Galina were amazing! We just wanted a nice relaxing day out on the water, and boy, did they deliver! The Valhalla is a beautiful boat. We were super comfortable in the sun, but there was plenty of shade when the sun got a little intense. They made the pick up from our cruise ship as easy as possible - they picked us up literally a 2 minute walk from the boat. Then, they let us direct the day. Jordan and Galina were so easygoing and told us so much about their island. We were able to do a little fishing, some snorkeling, and most of all just relaxing on the boat. It was the best day of our whole vacation.
Thanks again, for such an amazing day!!

Excellent Communication. A good day on the water fishing. Our captain and mate were very helpful and pleasant. We fished like a local! Fish professionally cut for us. Nothing is better than having your own fresh catch as dinner. Love every minute of the trip. Thank you for the wonderful memory!

Mako tours took us on a fishing adventure. Everything from booking to boarding was top notch. The team took great care of us and helped us have an epic fishing trip. They helped us book a restaurant after our fishing trip where the chef cooked the fish we caught earlier that day.

We began super early in the morning and caught a couple of decent sized tuna, then switched to live bait and hooked up a massive Blue Marlin!!! It was a two hour fight filled with excitement and thrills and ended with the catch of a lifetime. Jordan is a great captain and fisherman and he and Galina run a fantastic operation. I would highly recommend Mako Tours for anyone that wants to have a great experience fishing in Bonaire.

Everything from the initial inquiry through cleaning fish for our enjoyment after the trip was smooth and easy. Galina and Jordan run a fantastic operation including all details and opportunities to make the most of your trip. Jordan is very patient and knowledgeable on the trip for anyone who does not have much experience. The day long trip included a great lunch and refreshments. Visiting Bonaire must include fishing and Mako Tours will treat you right!
