The Bonaire Marine Park has done an excellent job over the years and has initiated and enforced the regulations that will keep the waters pristine for generations to come

Wow, some of the best diving I have ever done. I cannot wait to go back! The Lake is a great diving spot, as is the salt pier. We wished we would have found them earlier in our trip so we could dive a second,...More

For over 50 years the waters around this island have been protected. While some of the reef areas do show some signs of being over loved, I will have to say that overall, the idea is working. You can enter the water pretty much anywhere,...More

This is the sixth visit for us. The island keeps calling us back! Diving, sailing, kiteboards, wind surfing, ecology, food, etc. Love it!

We spent a week here in early November honing our diving skills and now can not wait to return, Beautiful clear water, lots of colorful corals, sponges and fish. Great place to get in the water

Bonair is a small chill island with the most friendly people! But under water will make your blood move! Amazing unusual fish and lots of them! Get around town in a simple golf cart and feel the air!

We took a tour but you could also take a water taxi to Klein Bonaire and snorkel on your own. This is a beautiful area.

Love the simplicity of shore diving. South west end near the Salt Pier has lots of white sand. North west has fun dives closer to shore with shade to rest after diving. 1000 steps is worth walking, but dive one of the many beautiful sites...More

There's a sailboat that docks at Devi Bonaire. I don't remember the name of the operator; we didn't go. There are a couple outfits that take people out to Klein. And - there are a number of the marked dive sites that seem... More

Yes on the marine park fee. It's worth it; you're supporting good work. The rub with the cruise ship dock and Town Pier is that there isn't any shallow reef right nearby (makes sense; it's a harbor). You can get in the... More
