Customer Review – Mark

…my wife and I love Bonaire (visited 20 times) and its underwater world, and many of the friends we have made while going to Bonaire are snorkelers. Your e-book is a great piece of work because it helps snorkelers find where the snorkeling is good, and as you say, that is not necessarily where the diving is good… Thank you for the effort you put into your Bonaire Snorkeling Guide eBook.

Customer Review – Cathy

the Bonaire book saved our trip to Bonaire last year. After a week of checking out site after site and finding nothing but hurricane destruction, I found your book. It saved our trip!

Customer Review – Ken

I downloaded your guide before going to Bonaire in July. Best thing I ever did. Like you, my wife and I snorkel but have never had the desire to scuba. I tried asking around for tips, but divers tend to treat snorkelers as lower class citizens (which may be true, but don’t treat me that way). Anyway, your guide became our bible. So much time is wasted when you don’t know your way around. Whether you’re lost or simply miss out on something you didn’t know about. Took most of your advice and had the best snorkeling ever. Thanks.

I just took a look at the tropical snorkeling eBook and am impressed. My husband and I have done three month long trips to Bonaire, before and after one of the big storms that damaged the shallow corals. This eBook is up to date with information and helpful tips of where to snorkel now

What’s in the Bonaire Snorkeling Book?

39 of the Best Snorkeling Sites

The shore maps in dive guides for Bonaire show about 80 locations you can get in the water. That’s okay for divers, because below 30 feet of depth the corals everywhere are fine. But several storms since 1999 have damaged many shallow areas. So for snorkelers there are only about 26 spots on Bonaire that are still good to great, and another 13 out on Klein Bonaire (the little island offshore). That is enough snorkeling to keep you busy all day long for two weeks, if you know where they are.

Each Spot Includes:

  • At a glance reference chart of the key details about the location
  • Description of what you can expect, above and below water
  • Best water entrance location and what it is like (sandy/rocky)
  • Hazards – currents, swells, exposure, challenging entries
  • Swimming directions to the healthiest reef areas with the most sea life
  • Detailed driving and parking directions
  • Facilities – bathrooms, water, shade, etc.
  • Color pictures of everything – the beach, water entrance, sea life, driving intersections, parking, and facilities

Each Chapter/Section Includes:

  • An overview description of what the area is like, with some notes about beaches to avoid with poor snorkeling.
  • Road maps showing where the spots are, parking areas, trails, etc.

The vast majority of the best snorkeling spots on Bonaire are accessible from shore. That means you don’t have to go on crowded boat tours on their schedule, to spots you can’t control, no matter the weather. Your snorkeling will be better and you will save money in the process. For accessing the great snorkeling out on Klein Bonaire we suggest several options including some boat tours.

Customer Review – Susan

First, your Bonaire Snorkeling Guide is perfect and spot on. Your directions were very understandable as to where to park and where to go in. Loved all the detail. Best snorkel book I have read for being clear, concise but covering a lot of detail and subject matter.
