DIVING AND SNORKELING

Whether you are a beginner or more experienced, diving on Bonaire is an experience you will never forget. The island is often declared the best diving destination in the Caribbean.

So be sure to take a look underwater during your vacation. Whether you choose to dive or snorkel, let yourself be swept away by the fascinating underwater world.


85 dive sites

JUST GET INTO THE WATER

The calm and clear waters make Bonaire an ideal diving destination. On the island you will find more than 85 official diving and snorkeling sites. Most are directly accessible from the shore, which makes admiring all the beauty under water very accessible.

Because the west coast is fairly sheltered, the currents are usually mild and visibility is over 20 meters in some places. The Slagbaai National Park is located in the northwest of Bonaire and hosts several places for excellent snorkeling and diving. Inexperienced snorkelers should avoid the east coast because of the stronger currents.

THE UNDERWATER WORLD OF BONAIRE IS ENCHANTING

BONAIRE NATIONAL MARINE PARK

One of Bonaire's main attractions is the Bonaire National Marine Park (BNMP), the oldest marine reserve in the world. This underwater world around Bonaire, Klein Bonaire and Lac Bay covers 2,600 acres of magnificent coral reefs and one of the best-preserved mangrove areas in the Caribbean.

The biological diversity of the coral reefs you find here is extraordinary and comparable to that of a tropical rainforest. The beaches on the north and west sides of Klein Bonaire are the main nesting sites for the sea turtles in this area. Chances are you will encounter one while snorkeling or diving.


SEA TURTLES

3 OUT OF 7 FOUND ON BONAIRE

Worldwide there are seven different species of sea turtles. Of those seven, three live in the waters of Bonaire and Klein Bonaire. Not all of these species eat the same food. Leatherbacks eat jellyfish, loggerheads choose hard shellfish and green sea turtles live mainly on algae. Whichever of these animals you encounter, it always is a highlight during a snorkeling or diving session.
