A day on the Amoray with Rich and Sue is one you won't soon forget! We were seeking the perfect one day adventure with that hard to find mix (at least for a single day on-Island) of 1) something local; 2) that would allow us to connect with the Island and its people as much as possible in a single day; and 3) would allow us to experience Bonaire's legendary snorkeling/diving. I'm not sure we could have asked for a single thing more than we found in our day with Rich and Sue. They are the most gracious hosts and guides, friendly and welcoming, kind and caring, and happy to go the extra mile to make your day magical! We were on island for a single day on our Disney Cruise during the rare Southern Caribbean itinerary. We were ecstatic that Rich and Sue had availability for the day! Rich picked us up, Sue had some fun local breakfast treats waiting upon our arrival. The fully and completely appreciated safety briefing was not only welcomed, but set a fantastic example and provided a great learning opportunity for our kids (and us)! Then we were off! Rich and Sue know just about everything there is to know about Bonaire both on land and in the water. Our kids (age 9 and 11) both had the opportunity to helm the Amoray (which is lovely, accommodating and perfectly comfortable in eery way). We got to visit multiple snorkeling locations, with Sue personally guiding us, pointing out all manner of sea life and keeping us safe. When our son experienced a sudden onset headache, Rich and Sue instantly recognized that it could be result of the full face snorkel setup (that we brought with us) and took immediate action to be sure he was getting fresh air and back to the boat to confirm all was well (it was). Lunch...I could write a review about lunch alone. Between the fresh tuna, the mushrooms (in Ketjap Manis - now a staple in our home!), rice, edamame, and brownies with Bonaire sea salt...it was incredible. With the sunshine and soft breeze...perfect moments all. It was nothing like a "tour," very little like "being on a charter," and was most like spending the day sailing with friends. Rich drove us back to town and we visited a couple of shops he recommended, including Beachvibes Surf Shop, where we got bracelets that were handmade by the owners and which continue to remind us of our day full of perfect moments.

Sailing with Rich and Sue aboard Amoray is a must for us when we visit Bonaire. It's wonderful to get out on the water and dive and snorkel from the boat. Great food, great drinks and great conversation - we were delighted to catch up with them.

Sailing on the Amoray is like sailing with good friends; the scenery is beautiful, the gourmet meals delicious, inventive cocktails pretty tasty. Rich and Sue take you to where the fish and turtles are, along with the occasional octopus and ocean triggerfish. “Go out and find stuff!” Rich exhorts you as you jump off the back of the boat into the beautifully clear water around Klein Bonaire or along the waterfront, with Sue along to help you identify underwater critters. An octopus looks like a piece of coral, as does a scorpionfish, but Sue can find them. The Amoray is wonderfully comfortable, and breezing along under sail so very peaceful. Life aboard is GOOD. We can’t wait to sail with Rich and Sue again next year.

What a wonderful day with Bonaire from the Sea. Richard and Susan are so friendly and helpful. We felt like family. We started the day with a light breakfast (Richards danish are the best) and sailed leisurely to our first dive site. After our first dive we had a tasty lunch. Susan is no doubt good cook! We then dove our second dive and relaxed after that with wonderful tapas and any drink you could think of asking for. Was a top notch day and would not hesitate to bring future guests on this excursion. You won’t be disappointed!

If you are Loki g for quality, you need look no further! If you appreciate gourmet food, this boat is for you. Do you recognize professional, courteous, fun loving and talented crew when you see it... we’ll look no further! Simply said you are a fool, if you don’t go out with Richard and Susan! Thanks for an absolutely amazing time. Will be back next year! PS. The reef has 35 less lion fish on it! Yummy
