“An informative tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

We took a ride to Lac Bay one day of our vacation in Bonaire. We were interested in taking a glass bottom kayak trip through the mangroves there. We saw the truck for Glass Bottom Tours and within a short amount came the kayakers. We set up a date with Paul the owner, and agreed to meet on the beach a day later. We were the only ones this day and got his "private" tour. A nice paddle. Snorkeling. Lots of information. Upside down jellyfish. Nature at it's best and we're allowed to take a peek at it. Take the trip. You won't be sorry. Paul is a college grad who gave up banking to persue his true passion and it shows. Nice guy. Thanks for the fun Paul.

“The best way for non-divers to discover underwater life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

This is my third time going on this boat tour with Paul. We are going back there for two reasons. One, we introduce there all our friends who travel with us to Bonaire. And two, it's fun to observe sea life, we learn something new every time.
Paul is a great guide, he is never boring. I think the secret of his success is that he loves what he is doing.

“A must-do on Bonaire”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

We went on the three hour glass bottom boat tour with two snorkeling dive stops. The boat was nice, the glass bottom was clean and easy to see marine life. The captain was friendly and knowledgable, though we could have used even more dialog to identify marine life!
The trip went out to Klein Bonaire. We were hoping to get to the south and west side of the island, but the winds were not favorable. So we went along the east and northeast sides of Klein Bonaire, where the ferry boats go.
I'd recommend this as a first trip to Klein Bonaire. If the boat goes to the south and west sides, they you can always take one of the ferry boats back another day to the usual northeast side and do the drift dive drop. Otherwise you might end up doing the same drift dive twice as we did.
The waters along Klein Bonaire are exceptionally clear and there is very heathly coral formations.

“favorite thing all week for my kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

My children were not as excited about the snorkeling as we were. They LOVED this boat ride. We saw sea turtles and Paul knew every kind of fish. He told us funny history about the area. Amazing day. Very affordable.

“a window to the world underwater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

Paul was an exceptional guide in both the kayak and boat tours, we did both activities and loved them equally as much! He is very knowledgeable, well spoken and laid back which is the perfect combination to enjoy during an island stay. each offers a nice amount of time in the water as well as out, snacks and beverages included. highly recommend both tours!! thanks again, Paul .. we're huge fans!
