Easy and relaxed shore diving on the West side or a bit more adventurous diving on the East side. One of the best conservated reef areas in the Carribean. Lion Fish are actively hunted and they are not as present on the reefs as a...More

We have been to the marine park twice. Great dives all around Bonaire. Highly recommended. You won't be disappointed.

Diving in Bonaire is as good as it gets. Crystal clear waters, minimal current, pristine sites with beautiful corals and lots of fish and animals to see.

Great diving and snorkeling from just about anyplace you can walk into the water...which is pretty much anywhere!

Our sixth visit it 15 years. We love and recommend diving here. Please, respect the reef and we have witnessed first hand where the coral is dying. The fish life is improving. Turtles, eels, spotted eagle rays are part of the excitement.

Waters are clear and full of wildlife. So many choices for dive locations by shore or by boat. Wish we had come sooner. Will definitely be back again since we weren't able to do every dive in one short week.

We visited Bonaire 12 years ago, and it has taken us too long to come back. This is shore diving at its best! Every dive was great, with at least one highlight such as spotting an eagle ray, frogfish, schools of barracuda, etc. We have...More

There's a sailboat that docks at Devi Bonaire. I don't remember the name of the operator; we didn't go. There are a couple outfits that take people out to Klein. And - there are a number of the marked dive sites that seem... More

Yes on the marine park fee. It's worth it; you're supporting good work. The rub with the cruise ship dock and Town Pier is that there isn't any shallow reef right nearby (makes sense; it's a harbor). You can get in the... More
