Just a fine afternoon on the water. A family delight, with four of us from age 10 to 85 aboard. The boat was in excellent condition: motor ran like a top, boat hook was the right size, the ladder had lots of depth which made boarding from the snorkel easy, we could get around relatively quickly (from the harbor to Punt Verikant, to Klein Bonaire for a snorkel, then on to the Oil Slick, and back along the shoreline. Just a delightful three and a half hours on the water. Brought lunch and had it on a mooring off Klein Bonaire.

Owner was right there to get the two of us 85 year olds aboard without any fuss. Fine outing, and lovely views of the villas along the shoreline. Impressive houses.

Had a great day of boating with Bonaire Boat Rental! They accommodated us last minute which was great, since this was a last minute addition to our Bonaire trip. The boats were clean and all equipment worked perfectly. The owner met us and gave us a briefing on operations and safety. There was already an ice chest with ice on board. We spent 3 hours cruising at high speed up and down Bonaire. Be aware, these boats come equipped with Yamaha 115 engines and are fast and will consume a lot of gas if you are not mindful. We blew through 110 liters of gas and had fun doing it. But you can definitely go slower if you want to. Such a great time! Highly recommend!

Highly recommend this boat rental. The equipment is new and well-maintained, great value for money, super attentive staff. Due to our own ignorance, we got stranded far from the coast, luckily we had a free of charge wireless provided with the boat and could reach the office, they came to help within 10-15 min.

We were visiting Bonaire on a cruise ship and rented a boat for the morning to go snorkeling. Johnson met us at the marina and took us to a nearby store to buy some cold drinks and snacks and ice, and then stopped to let a couple of people in our party rent snorkel gear.

The boat was in good shape and worked out well for us. The first spot was at Klein Bonaire where we picked up a mooring at No Name Beach. The best snorkeling was south of where we moored. We would swim into shore and walk down the beach and then get in the water and snorkel back to the boat. The wind picked up later in the morning so we moved to the site just off the Airport. The snorkeling wasn't quite as good there, but was calmer.

After we were done and he got his afternoon rental situated, he drove us into town and dropped us off at a nice spot for lunch.

If I had a suggestion for Johnson it would be to have better pictures of the boats on his web site. He has two different boats and they are a little different and I always like to know as much as possible when making arrangements from so far away and when we don't have a lot of time lin port when coming in on a cruise ship.

Overall we had a great experience thanks to the great service provided and the great time on the water.

We rented a motorboat for an afternoon and had a great time swimming at klein Bonaire. The staff at Bonaire Boat Rental was very reactive and the reservation was easy via Whatsapp. They immediately replied and sent pictures and videos of their boats. When we arrived at the Marina they were already there and gave us all the necessary explanations. When we came back a bit earlier than expected we called and they were there within 5 minutes. Great service, good price quality, I can definitely recommend them!

We personally went to hire a boat to take us to Klein Bonaire. Set up a date and time as there are very few options on weekdays when the cruise ships are in port. Johnson Hart who runs this small boat agreed that it is not fair that those tourists who stay on the island and pour in large sums of money are not able to enjoy the island on weekdays. He called an hour before we were to meet in the harbour to say he could not take us out. This leaves us with no options for the day other than do our own thing on the bigger island. It comes down to money. This booking was only made less than 18 hours ago. I guess the expression “Money Talks” and “All talk, NO ACTION!”
Thanks...Johnson Hart!

What a great day on the boat with Bonaire Boat rental. The boat was clean, powerful and ran like a top. We did a full day and went up the coast to 1000 Steps them back to Klein. Since the boat rental was from 8-3, we were the first to arrive on the island and had it to ourselves for most of the morning. Around 2 we left and cruised down to Bachelor Beach before heading back to meet at the marina. In the morning you can drop you supplies off at the marina and park across the street. We will definitely do this again the next time we are in Bonaire!

During our visit in Bonaire I wanted to rent a nice boat for the day. Through colleagues I ended up with Bonaire boat rental so through recommendation already. I send Johnson a message through Whatsapp and it was reserved right away. He picked us up from our resort and drove to the harbor where his boats are. After an excellent explanation about where to go and where not we checked the propeller together and took pictures. No hidden things at all. If you follow his instructions you won’t be penalized in the end. We had an amazing day on the water visited great snorkel spots and at the end of the day Johnson drove us back to our hotel. Absolute recommendation!

Called to rent a boat and the owner was very friendly and helpful to arrange it all.
The boat is really nice, spacious, we got a cool tube behind it and also got a cool box for drinks. Good way to go to Klein Bonaire and snorkel sites.
We had an amazing time and we'll be back!
