Double Dip Snorkel Trip
We provide a 3,5 hours guided drift snorkel trip in a relaxed atmosphere. At Klein Bonaire, we make two magnificent different stops and we snorkel in small groups. In between, you will enjoy the great surroundings and breathtaking views while we serve you our homemade snacks/bites and refreshments.
Sunset-Night Snorkel Tour
We provide a 2,5 hours guided snorkel trip in a relaxed atmosphere and no crowds onboard. Discover the awakening nightlife underwater during Bonaire’s amazing sunsets. A mysterious new world opens up, whatever the ocean wants to reveal to you on any given night is always a gift.
Fun Trip to No Name Beach
During this super fun 2.5 hour fun trip where all drinks are unlimited and while enjoying a snack, we sail to Klein Bonaire to let our guests see and feel the bounty white sand at No Name Beach. An unforgettable experience in the crystal clear water and beautiful snow white sand. You can swim there and also snorkel.
If you think freediving is like snorkeling (but very deep), you’re wrong. Freediving is a totally different way to experience the underwater world. You dive deeper, stay underwater longer and feel part of the ocean itself.
We will teach you the basics and focus on breathing techniques in this discovery.
Here's what we have in store for you!
Whether you are a first-time snorkeler or very experienced, we believe more personal attention results in more fun and better snorkeling. Together we create lasting memories and stories to tell. Our selection of Tours offers something for everyone……….
We, Arno and Joyce, can call ourselves the proud owners of this great company.
In 2020 we packed our things and came to Bonaire with our 2 teenagers and dog. Because we had lived in the same village all our lives we were ready for something totally different. And we went for it.
Living on Bonaire immediately felt very good. The openness of the people, the nature, the relaxed life and of course the beautiful sea so close by every day.
After 2 years of working for a boss, our “entrepreneurial heart” started beating again and we wanted a business for ourselves. What we always had in the Netherlands.
We got to know the previous owners of the Sea Cow and that is how we learned that they wanted to sell their company. Our hearts beat faster when we saw what a beautiful company it was. And still is. For years at #1 on Tripadvisor.
Joyce has preferred being underwater to above water in the sea all her life. And Arno loved nothing more than cruising in the Netherlands. Also from a young age.
This fits PERFECT into our lives. So you can’t make us happier.
The Sea Cow is in excellent condition, equipped with spacious comfortable seats and 2 wide vertical stairs so everyone can easily get in and out of the water.
We and our team assure you that you will have an unforgettable and enjoyable experience with us on the Sea Cow.
Safety is our top priority and we are equipped with all the necessary safety equipment and requirements. We are also all trained first aid, AED, and oxygen first aiders.
Love our reef!
Oxybenzone is the main active ingredient in most sunscreens. But the same mechanism that makes it filter out ultraviolet light and prevent sunburns in humans makes it lethal to baby coral. Basically, the sunscreen ingredient is shoving coral reefs off the ledge on which they’re already teetering. Learn more in this video!
Lovely snorkeltour not to be missed
Perfect tour to do snorkel with Joyce and her team at Klein Bonaire. Marvellous experience as they give you a lot of tips for the snorkeling itself. Even if you did snorkel before, there is always something to learn.
Amazing day and operator
I can't over express how pleased we were with our snorkeling tour. The staff was friendly, professional, gracious and very aware of participants' abilities and safety. The guides were very courteous and knowledgeable. Top notch, #1 outfit. Not to be missed.
Great boat, great food, graet drinks. These guys understand it. You get to see beautifull underwater life, the guide provides great information and points out all the specials. Love it. Already did two tours with them!
