Sea Cow Charters - About us
since January 2013,
we, Henk and Gea are the proud owners of the SEACOW
During a holiday in 2009, we fell in love with the beautiful
island of Bonaire. During this holiday, the plan was brought
forward to realize our dream: to live, work and enjoy the
relaxed atmosphere of this beautiful island.
As Henk worked with the police in the Netherlands, from
there he applied to the Corps Bonaire where he could finally
start in early 2011. Gea had various jobs including hostess
on a catamaran. It was another beautiful dream: our own boat
to show people the beautiful underwater world of Bonaire.
Luck was with us, the Seacow charters was for sale and......
another dream came true.
The Seacow sails for cruise passengers, visiting
tourists and of course for our own residents.
Do you like a cozy, casual atmosphere, then it is definitely worth
to have a moooooving experience with us. Of course you can always
contact us if you have something to celebrate, everything can be
Hope to see you on board,
Greetings Henk & Gea.
The boat is an original Venezuelan fruit vessel, found 20 years ago,
abandoned on the southern tip of Bonaire. There were no signs of
origin on the boat, so the owner could not be traced, and after a
year the boat was declared "island property". The first years the
boat was used as a water taxi and was later introduced for
snorkeling trips for which it is still in use. After a thorough
restoration, the boat is now in excellent condition and sails out
almost daily to Klein Bonaire for great snorkeling trips and
