This was by far the best snorkeling I saw on Bonaire and I snorkeled at several sites including the National Park. Everyone told us this is THE snorkel boat to take on Bonaire. Dee and the staff are so helpful, even helping adjust your snorkel mask, defogging it and giving you personalized tips. They also show you various fish and other sea life by free-diving and pointing it out. The only word of warning would be if you don't like snorkeling with a group and having to follow a leader, you probably won't enjoy it as much as a tour that leaves you more on your own. However, since this is a drift snorkel, and a long distance, it would undoubtably be really difficult to make sure everyone reached the end point without a guide. My only criticism would be the lunch - I was hoping for something like fish but it was a Surinam dish, noodles with greens and a very greasy egg-roll type thing with sprouts inside that just wasn't appetizing. It surprised me given that most of their clients are probably Dutch and American, why they'd serve such an 'exotic' dish. The plantains and dessert were tasty though.

Sailing and snorkelling on the Woodwind with Dee and her crew was great! Dee is a wonderful source of information about the local underwater environment. She is encouraging and accommodating. Getting on and off, and back on the woodwind after the snorkelling was an intimidating feeling, but Dee and her crew (as well as my friends) were great. They were sensitive, and confident that it could be done safely.
Thanks Dee for a great experience!

I recommend the woodwind excursion to everybody who loves nature, fish and good food. The amazing captain Dee and her crew bring you to 3 wonderful sites for snorkling where you can see different kinds of sea turtles, hundred types of fish and the dreaded barracuda. Drinks and wonderful food is served on the boat by Dee and her crew. One of a kind adventure!

An incredible experience! Starting out with fresh juice as you head through schools of flying fish. And then the snorkel! Incredible coral and fish and the guides are enthusiastic and so helpful! I've been snorkeling many places but Klein Bonaire is the top! Fresh fruit and great customer service by the crew. Highly recommended!

We usually don't book snorkel trips in Bonaire because there are so many good places to snorkel right from the shore. Friends recommended this trip and we are so glad we went. It was terrific. A guide swims with you and they are so knowledgable and enjoy explaining all kinds of things about the fish and coral. There were three snorkel stops and they were all great. At the end of the trip they serve you a delicious lunch. All in all, it was a wonderful experience and well worth the money. We both agreed we would do it again the next time we are in Bonaire.
