Bonaire has amazing snorkeling, but take water shoes if you visit No Name Island! Seriously! (your feet will thank you as you depart the water taxi and step into rocks and bits of coral). You needn't bother snorkeling the reef if you are not an adventure buff. There are more than enough fish to see right off the beach in shallower water. I preferred the beach snorkeling as deep water snorkeling starts the Jaws theme song in my head. And did I mention to take water shoes? We caught Good Return Water Taxi at Karel's Beach Bar and spent the time waiting for the taxi sitting on the dock watching fish swim by in impossibly clear turquoise water. And did I mention to get some water shoes?!

Loved this Island! We rented a car (from Budget Car Rental) and drove all over island - Awesome opportunity & would definitely recommend! We went to Donkey Sanctuary, saw the pink flamingos, slave huts on beach, Lighthouse, Salt flats & beautiful beaches. Ate lunch @ Karel's Beach Bar & Waterport. Tried Iguana Soup, coconut breaded shrimp and cocktail called "Sex with an Alligator!!" Fun, memorial day! Can't wait to return someday . . .

The best of the best! People are very helpful, everywhere on the island. Went to Spice Beach for the day. $2.50 cab ride. $5.00 chairs. Not much of a beach but a nice dock to get in water...incredible displays of aquatic life feet from shore, not a good bathing beach, (you have to swim). Staff is attentive and friendly....good food and drinks, very reasonable. Small pool and a dive shop top the list of amenities. Never had the feeling I was getting fleeced. A great experience!

Gorgeous island. We were told it is the scuba diving capital of the world. We took a taxi to Spice/Eden Beach for $2.50 US per person each way to the beach and rented snorkeling gear when we got there. Plenty of fish to see snorkeling right from beach. There is a hotel/restaurant/pool & bar right there on the beach available for use as well as beach lounge chairs available for rent for $5 per day. We had a great time. This would be a difficult beach to be at for the day if you had small children. Very rocky/coral coast so you are not able to slowly walk into the water or play in any shallow areas. We got in the water from a small dock on the beach which was immediately over our heads when we got in. Although we loved this beach I would not recommend it to anyone with small children.

Took a tour of the island and then went to a resort to swim and snorkel. Make sure you do some snorkeling in Bonaire. Best snorkeling we have ever done. Most fish and most diverse fish we have ever seen snorkeling. Fantastic.

LOVED LOVED LOVED this island. We did a non-ship excursion by Bonaire Cruisers. It is a golf cart rental company. Saw so much on our own time.

We just got back from an 8 day cruise on the Sunshine...went to Aruba, Bonaire and Grand Turk. We did the snorkel excursion at Bonaire. We didn't book through Carnival. We got off the ship and walked to the right, found the water taxi (catamaran) and only paid $20. It was $40 with Carnival. We went to no name beach and it was the best ever place we have ever snorkelled.... lots of brightly colored, beautiful fish and coral!! Loved it!!
