The crew of the boat were such professional and welcoming people. We were entertained with stories of Bonaire and their home life in the Netherlands. We were fed excellent hand made sandwiches and other snacks and had a very nice beverage selection as well for enjoying the afternoon on the water. Our snorkeling guide was a young lady that had...

We joined others from our cruise ship to form a party of 14 to take a sailing and snorkeling trip aboard the Compass. The group had been organized by an individual who had sailed before on the Compass via the Cruise Critic web site. We met Captain Wim about 9:00 AM among the group of tour operators gathered under shelters... More

My first attempt at snorkelling and I was slightly nervous but with the help and great patience of the lovely Evelyn this turned out to be a fantastic experience. We saw numerous fish, turtle, octopus fab. We booked the trip on the day in the port, 3 couples. We were offered drinks constantly and plates of delicious snacks kept appearing.... More

Excellent sail and snorkel with the Compass crew out of the Plaza Resort Marian (5 min from cruise terminal). Very clear water and lots of fish. Followed by Dutch treats to eat and soda/beer to drink.

We had a snorkel trip with Compass but ended up going on another sailing vessel as the Compass was full. That turned out nice since there were only 4 of us on board. The crew was very nice and the snacks and drinks were equally nice as well. The water is beautiful but the storm (Matthew) did effect the water... More

On the last night of our dive vacation in Bonaire, we treated ourselves to the Sunset cruise on the Compass sailing vessel. It was a wonderful way to wind down our vacation! The combined hospitality of Captain Wim and hostess Evelyne provided lots of appetizers, wine and good conversation against the backdrop of the scenic coast of the island. With... More

I booked this tour through emails exchanged by the company a few months back. The original snorkel/sailing tour was 3 hours long and my group and I wanted to do 4 hours. The man I spoke was more than happy to give us a four hour long, private sailing/snorkeling tour. I was a little nervous about the authenticity of these... More

We chartered Compass for a sunset snorkel and dinner and it was one of the most memorable and fun events of our trip. Wim and Marcel (sp?) were fantastic hosts. Casual, lots of laughs, excellent food and unhurried snorkeling. I can't recommend Compass highly enough! You can also sign on individually for their sunset BBQ tour. DO NOT MISS IT!!

Wim and his crew were very nice. Easy to find him right when we got off the ship. Took a taxi to his sail boat (it was very hot in the van, but thankfully a short drive) We sailed out to the snorkeling area which was probably about 45 min long and even got to see a tuna fish jumping... More
