Enjoyed many new locations on Bonaire's west side of the NMP. Fish populations seemed to be increasing, so too diveristy. Recovery nursery corals seem to be prolific and repopulating well, and many natural coral starts can be seen throughout this section of the park.

Such a pleasant and relaxing place and amazing overlooked dives. A long bumpy and rocky drive. The blow whole is also amazing if you have never seen one. The dessert and ocean all rolled into one. Romantic little beach about halfway through the park. So...More

I have been coming here for the past 10 years and the diving is always incredible. The best dive bang for your buck as most places have unlimited tanks for diving. A few include free Nitrox especially at Buddy Dive. Buddy's has an amazing reef...More

Bonaire and their National Marine Park are our favorite dive destination. Return visitors for 12 years and counting. The abundance and variety of marine life is amazing. Great for snorkeling too.

Beautiful park with lots to see and do. Must purchase a pass and need to be there in the morning because of the time it takes to do the whole park. I would recommend calling the park or looking on the website for information on...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
