Snorkeling From Shore
You’ll find plenty of spots on Bonaire to gear up, wade in and explore shallow coral gardens hosting a variety of sea life. All one needs is a rental vehicle to access many of the clearly marked and easily accessible sites along Bonaire’s leeward coastline. If you are lucky enough to be staying in oceanfront accommodations, chances are there’s great snorkeling right in your resort’s backyard.
Snorkeling By Boat
Some sites are just easier to reach by boat – especially on Klein Bonaire. Many of Bonaire’s dive operations also have boat trips going to snorkeling sites – just check with the dive shop on what is scheduled. There are several highly rated Bonaire snorkel cruises (both sail and motor vessels) offering daily snorkel excursions to various sites on Klein Bonaire. They provide guides, snacks and equipment for those without their own snorkel gear.
