Today I joined Adventuremakers with there Cave Tour. A absolute MUST DO on Bonaire. Marco, 1 of the owners and tourguide for this tour was perfect in every way. He explained the geological history about Bonaire, flora and Fauna. The 3 caves we visited were al different. Everything you do is explained perfectly This tour is possible for all ages, when you are healthy, can walk and not afraid of smaller spaces( not real small) So... 5 stars for this MUST DO ...with adventuremakers. 23-07-2022 Martijn.

We had the intention to visit the National Park on our own and to rent an SUV but due to a shortage of vehicles, we could not rent any. So we decied to make the tour with Advenure Makers. How lucky we were. We would never have had such detailed information about the fauna, flora and geology . There were 3 Landrovers with about 12 tourists on this tour and they often stopped to let us out and tell us about the things to see at that particular spot. I forgot the name of our driver/guide but he made this trip wworth more than the money we paid. At lunchtime they served a simple but varied lunch for us on tables and there was also a stop to do snorkelling at a small but beautiful beach. They provided the snorkelling gear for those who wanted to go for a swim. I have never been so happy that rental cars were not available. On our own this experience would never had been so instructive . I strongly recommend this company

Thursday, 9/23 – BONAIRE An early alarm woke us and we met our friends at 6:45 in the Oceanview for breakfast. With a 7:00 arrival and a 7:30 meeting time with our tour with “Adventure Makers Bonaire” we ended up being the first group off the ship. Our tour guides Nike and Jon were waiting for us and led us to our vehicle for the morning tour, a former German military Mercedes open air truck. Thank goodness it had a canvas top for shade! By the end of the morning it was getting hot, but for the early tour it was a great way to see the southern end of the island. Our tour took us along the coastal road and we stopped to see the salt production facilities. These are huge and the mountains of crystal white salt are impressive. We also saw the White, Blue, Red, and Orange Obelisks along the road. There were signs to ships for the various loading areas in the sailing days. Two sets of “Slave huts” are preserved as well as an automated lighthouse on the southeastern point. We also saw multiple groups of flamingos as well as donkeys. The guides pointed out that the eastern beach is rough as the wind drives the waves there. There is a lot a debris that washes up on these beaches, much of it all the way from Asia due to the currents. Some of the residents gather up debris and turn them into artwork along the way. We made a restroom stop at a resort on a beautiful bay. The guides said we could get our feet wet but none of our group wanted to get sandy feet this early into the day. We cut that stop short and continued on to the Flamingo sanctuary. There we saw White flamingos. Flamingos are born White, after two years of consuming pink shrimp, their skin turns pink. The dirt road to the sanctuary was quite an experience in the German truck! We drove back to Willemstad and our guides pointed out various sites before bringing us to Epic Tours, our snorkeling tour provider to Klein Bonaire. While Epic has a set schedule of taking folks out, for the six of us they took us virtually immediately. A 15 minute boat ride took us to the drop off point for our “Drift snorkeling” outing. They told us to expect to be in the water 60 – 75 minutes and to just let the current take us along to where they had shelters set up on the beach where our towels and gear would be waiting. This was absolutely the best snorkeling experience we have ever had. Never have we seen such an abundance of various types of coral, and the number of fish of all sizes was incredible. I was very pleased with how well my Olympus waterproof camera battery held out as I shot a lot of video clips as well as many stills with the fill in flash operating. We had a great time and a few times I even doubled back to get a second look at a few areas. After about an hour, one of our group somehow had a fin come loose. This regretfully led to them having a bit of a panic attack. DW and I helped him as best as we could, guiding him along towards the beach shelters. At one point, with the shelters in sight (but still some distance off), he said that he simply needed to stand and broke away towards the shore. Part of our group was on shore so I was able to yell that help was needed. One of the Epic representatives, Laura, came running along the beach and came into the water along with one of our group to assist. They sent one of their boats and we helped our friend onto the boat. Not taking any chances, they immediately took him to shore and had an ambulance waiting. The paramedics worked on him and took him to the hospital to be checked out. In the meantime, the Epic crew on Klein Bonaire kept us informed as to what was going on. Needless to say his wife was very concerned. They sent a boat to bring us all back to shore and the captain kept us informed on the 25 minute ride back. The owners of Epic, Michel & Inka were waiting for us on the pier. They brought us to a shady spot to report that Gus was being well cared for at the hospital. Inka took his wife to the hospital while the rest of us spoke with Michel. We then headed back to the ship. Upon arrival at the Equinox, we went directly to guest services to offer any assistance needed should their cabin need to get packed up. Guest services was already aware of the incident. Celebrity sent a representative to the hospital. In the end, everything stabilized with our friend and he was released just in time to return to the ship with the Celebrity representative just before the gangway was brought up. Ship's medical went over everything with them and except for a “No alcohol for two days” medical order they were free to continue the cruise. Great support from both Epic tours Bonaire and Celebrity on this entire incident is acknowledged. Back on board, I enjoyed a short time in the shady pool and hot tub, and then got ready for dinner. It was really great to have our friends at dinner with us. Today was certainly a day that will always be remembered, but despite all that happened, I would love to go back to Bonaire to see the North part of the island and do some more snorkeling.

Yesterday we did the tour in the Washington Slagbaai National Park and it was great! John was our tour guide and he's been so nice, helpful and informative. We were lucky, since we were the only Germans on the tour and got our own private tour in German. But again, John was the best guide we could have wished for, he answered all our questions perfectly and showed us a lot about flora and fauna in the park. Highly recommended tour, we're really glad that we did it and did not just go into the park on our own because we would have missed out on a lot.
