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.


Guide Services & Instruction

If you are just getting started, there are courses offered on Bonaire that can teach you snorkeling, equipment use, safety, skills and techniques to help you effortlessly discover Bonaire’s waters. More advanced courses teach free-diving and breathing techniques so you can spend more time below the surface. Guides are available to show you some of Bonaire’s best sites and help with any age and skill level. We can assist with getting you set up with Bonaire’s best guides and instruction including Learn to Snorkel for beginners, Skin Diver Certification courses, Free-Diving courses and more.
