The Aquaspace, a trimaran designed and builded in the beginning of the 80's by a famous french architect, Jacques Rougerie. Friend and co- worker of Jacques Cousteau. This unique vessel has a great history as of being used as center for marine biology studies durind the 80's. After coming to Bonaire it became a charter boat wich gives you a lot of variety. Sailing, snorkling, our sundecks and of course this incredible underwater observation deck.The Aquaspace... A little bit of everything!!

We we fortunate with a small group on our tour. The craft accommodates 22; we had only 10 passengers. Andre and Karen were amazing! After riding the drop off around Klein Bonaire we were taken to a snorkeling spot where only three people got in the water! Boy did the others miss out. Saw a HUGE parrotfish over 4 feet... More

We chose this excursion through royal carribean. We went snorkeling 3 times on our trip, and this was definitely the best snorkeling! The reef was alive with many beautiful fish. This was a very laid back excursion. We went below the ship and took advantage of the clear underwater bottom of the boat. We had a lot of fun even... More

We went on a 3-hour excursion on the Aquaspace, a renovated Jacque Cousteau vessel that sailed easily across the water to nearby snorkeling.The center of the vessel is glass and we could sit below as the fish swam by, or sail above in the light wind. It was easy on and off the vessel, the snacks were yummy, and the... More

Although the weather didn't want to cooperate, the Captain and crew were very accommodating! I understand Jacques Cousteau was a co-designer for this Marine Biologist Vessel. The glass windows below deck are a good options for those who don't snorkel (a bit stuffy down below). But the best part of the ride along the reef was snorkeling in a 'special... More

First one disclaimer , we had horrible weather , it poured for 2 hrs so a lot of the magic of the semi sub was done not to anyone's fault other than Mother Nature. The crew was excellent and knowledgeable and couldn't be any more helpful under the circumstances . My only issue with this tour is that it is... More

Captain Andre accommodated us during a busy cruise ship week when everything was booked. We had a sunset cruise with amazing snorkeling and an absolutely unbelievable dinner! I cannot more highly recommend AquaSpace-you can't beat this crew or experience!

My husband and I had a great experience on this tour! The staff couldn't have been more informative, accommodating, and truly awesome hosts. We had plenty of time to enjoy the submarine portion as well as the opportunity to snorkel. And of course what boat ride in the Caribbean would be complete without refreshments on the return trip! Excellent experience!

We went out on AquaSpace for a breakfast snorkel trip. We sailed along the shoreline of Klein Bonaire, saw lots of beautiful fish and turtles down below in the semi submarine!! Next we sailed to Andrea 1, tied up and snorkeled while the crew prepared breakfast. As we got back on board, the breakfast smelled so good. Nothing like a... More
