    Traditional Fishing with Local Fisherman

    Kralendijk, Bonaire

    Duration 4 hrs

    Fish with local anglers that know the best spots to catch fish such as mahi mahi, wahoo and all sorts of game fish. The equipment will be provided on board the boat, so you don’t have to do anything but concentrate on reeling in a big one.


    The waters off Bonaire are teeming with snapper, tuna, tarpon and every other imaginable species, so there will be plenty of opportunities. While there is no telling what you might catch, you can be sure to have a great time on the water.


    To enhance the experience, the captain and crew will regale you with local fishing stories and point out some of the more fascinating historical sites along the shore, including clusters of huts constructed in the 1850s for the slaves that worked the salt ponds. The obelisks that you will see along the coast are navigational markers. They are typically painted red, white and blue—the colors of the Dutch flag.

    Twice as Nice Catamaran Sail & Snorkel

    St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands

    Duration 3 1/2 hrs

    Snorkel two reefs that are teeming with marine life and see the wreck of a freighter that has become an artificial reef. A sleek catamaran will bring you to the snorkeling sites, which are both located just off Buck Island, a naturally beautiful oasis that is a national wildlife refuge. Turtle Cove is known for its abundant sea turtles, the most common being green and hawksbill turtles. It’s easy to differentiate between the species, as green sea turtles weigh as much as 500 pounds and are typically twice the size of hawksbills. Countless tropical fish inhabit Turtle Cove and Shipwreck Cove, the second snorkeling venue, which is named for the ship that was scuttled there in 1979. A few years later, Hurricane Hugo broke the ship into three pieces and pushed it into shallower water. While snorkeling in the coves, you can expect to see snapper, blue tangs and parrotfish of every imaginable neon color.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Double your chances of seeing marine life by snorkeling two reefs off Buck Island.
    • Look for sea turtles and brightly colored tropical fish, which are abundant in both locales.
    • See a shipwreck that lies just 25 feet below the surface of the water.
    • Enjoy an open bar and Caribbean music on the return cruise.


    Need to Know:

    Note: Participants must be at least 5 years of age and a maximum weight 260 lbs. Guests must be in good physical condition due to swimming and snorkeling in open waters. Bring a towel, cover-up or t-shirt, camera, non-oil sunscreen and cash to purchase t-shirts if desired. Guests who go ashore do so with the understanding that they will be mixing with members of the general public.
