Here again we went to a beach called Coco Beach which is supposed to be nice for snorkeling. Although we are not snorkeler the beach was small and not convenient for swimming. So we cab back to another beach called Sorobon! Wow, clear and shallow water for 100's of feet. Well worth it. Read Less

Bonaire is a fairly small island that is somewhat new to cruise tourism. It is easy to walk around town and they have a nice local craft plaza a few blocks from the pier.

One of a kind vessel you can go down and see underwater. Came up and had drinks and snacks. Those that wanted to could snorkel later.

Bonaire was a lovely port. We got the yellow water taxi in the line up off folks offering services right off the ship and went on their first run of the day. It wasn't planned that way, it was sheer coincidence on our part. Apparently, on the first run of the day, the water taxi goes off to Spice/Cocoa Beach (it apparently has multiple names) then it head off to Little Bonaire, which is an uninhabited island that has excellent snorkeling. If you want, they will land the folks on the island and then take the folks who want to snorkel about a half mile up the beach and boot them off into the water. We took them up on this option and it was absolutely excellent. You do need to have your own snorkel gear, though, so be sure to pack it with you before you get onto the ship. We drifted with the current and there was loads of different corals to view and fishes to see. It was a lovely experience. The water taxi reappears every hour so one can choose when to leave. We drifted slowly so we weren't ready the first time it came back. We took it back to shore on the second reappearance and it was perfect. The water taxi was $15 for a round trip. After the water taxi drift snorkel, we walked through Bonaire town. As usual, the places further away from the ship had better prices. We picked up some souvenirs at an assortment of craft booths that were towards the middle of town. I suspect they have them there on ship days. Read Less

Visited attractions on our own, hiring a group van (taxi) on the dock for $25. During about 3 hours we enjoyed an informative tour. Visited almost the whole island with interesting stops: The salt flats and the history of the industry, slaves and the huts, actually beautiful, sparkling pink in the sun. Highest point on the island and a popular dive site with tons of iguanas. Stopped at Cactus Distillery for a taste. Learned of the culture of the island and about daily life. An extended drive took us to the flamingo and donkey sanctuary, the oil mixing facility, then drove by the beaches, where you can scuba and relax (if desired). Our driver stopped along roads to allow us to take photos. Baby green iguanas generally do not bite. Iguanas make intelligent, friendly pets. Unlike snakes and many other herps, iguanas can identify their caretakers, and some have remarkable personalities. Read Less

Boat docks right next to kralendijk, a very small capital town. By the docks you will see a line of tents with people offering all kinds of tours and activities and tickets to Klein Bonaire. Booked a half day trip with a local company called Bonaire Vista Tours. Most of Bonaire is Flat and in this area they mine salt. Visit to the Salt Pans was interesting. Tour took in most of the sites including Goto Lake to see Flamingos, Rincon an old inland town with Cactus Distillary, Seru Hill and of course you are driving round the most picturesque coastline. At the end of the tour we spent some time on our own walking around the colourful buildings of Kralendijk before returning to the ship. If you turn right from the ship and walk about 25 mins there is a hotel where you can pay a fee to spend the day on their beach. Read Less
