Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

What you will visit:
Bonaire National Marine Park
As a result of diligent stewardship of its marine resources, which have been legally protected since 1979, Bonaire has been consistently ranked as the finest scuba diving and snorkeling destination in the Caribbean. This pristine, tropical paradise teems with colorful marine life, including myriad rainbow hued fish (such as tangs, parrotfish, damsel fish, butterfly fish and angel fish), turtles, rays and the healthiest corals in the region.

What you will see along the way:
Prepare yourself for unparalleled beauty and wonder as your glass-bottom boat drifts along several dive sites with names like Nearest Point, Ebo's Reef and Buddy's Reef. These sites (which are all part of the Bonaire National Marine Park) offer up some of the most spectacular views of the delicate fringing coral reefs. Look for elusive moray eels that hide out in crevices and keep a keen eye out for special sightings of sea turtles, and rays. A reef fish ID card is available for purchase on the boat.
