“Fun sailing and delicious dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

Capt. Wim and crew of one Nonnie (who conversed beautifully with everyone in Dutch, English and Spanish!) were very welcoming and worked to ensure everyone was comfortable....serving a steady stream of drinks and snacks during the sailing. At anchor at Andrea dive spot for some snorkeling and then a delicious dinner....turns out he is former chef from Holland who on a whim bought the sailboat five years ago. Usual friendly blend of cultures (Dutch, German and American this trip) on board!

“Simply The Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

My Wife & I have no sailed 4 times with Capt. "Wim" on his "Sunset, Sailing, Snorkling, Dinner Cruise. Fantastic. The sail was relaxing, and the snorkling at Klien Bonaire was OUTSTANDING. 3' Rainbow Parrott Fis, and several Turtles. Fish of all types. All of this in 3'-8- of water. The other outstanding feature is the Bar-B-Que dinner. Variety and quality might make it "The best food in Kralendijk"
For the price, YOU HAvE TO DO THIS ACTIVITY!!!!!!!

“Great way see the sunset!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

We've enjoyed one of the incredible sunsets at Bonaire with this cruise.

They charge USD 75 per person for a trip which starts at 3 PM until 7.30 PM.

For this amount they serve an open bar and a very good BBQ! They took us to the "Andrea" diving spot for some snorkeling and afterwards served the BBQ.

All in all it was a very pleasant way of spending the afternoon and evening.

“Great trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

Recently visited Bonaire and had nothing planned, as I had snorkelled much and never sailed this trip was perfect for us. Wim sailed us to an area where we were to snorkel and then we were led in the water by the lovely Ester. My wife did not wish to snorkel so stayed on the yacht so we had a perfect few hours completed with a few beers and a couple of sandwiches on board.
Thank you Wim and Ester

“Just the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

This was an excellent trip! 12 of us went with Wim and Esther for a 4.5 hour trip. We were received in a party bus from the cruise terminal to take us to the boat. We were a particular crowd, and had asked for certain beverages and food, and Wim ahd Esther nailed it! The sailboat is very clean, and both captain and helper are there to please you, with security always in mind.
We went snorkeling, and had time to admire the best beaches in Bonaire. Overall, highly recommended!
