    Samur Sail, Beach & Snorkel

    Kralendijk, Bonaire

    Duration 3 hrs

    Sail a magnificent Siamese junk to the unblemished oasis Klein Bonaire, an uninhabited island known for its pristine beach and exceptional snorkeling. Cruise directly from the pier in a Zodiac boat and within minutes you’ll arrive at the Samur, an authentic Siamese junk. Modeled after the well-known junks that sail throughout Asia, this 56-foot sailing vessel was hand-built in Thailand with beautiful wood-carved details.


    After boarding the Samur and settling in, you’ll set off for the uninhabited island of Klein Bonaire, which lies due west of Kralendijk, well within sight. As the red sails catch the wind and you cruise the surrounding sea, you may feel that you have been transported back in time where sailing ships ruled the seas. En route, the captain will elaborate on the history of the Siamese Sailing Junk and what you will find at the reef located just off-shore from the island.


    Upon arriving at Klein Bonaire, you’ll tender to the beach, where you’ll have time to snorkel directly off the beach, or head for nearby Ebo’s reef. The waters in both sites are typically calm and offer a spectacular array of marine life. You may see parrotfish, angelfish, sea horses and sea turtles, all gracefully swimming about undisturbed by your presence.


    The beach at Klein Bonaire is just as impressive, as the island is completely undeveloped and the crystal-clear waters are protected as part of the Bonaire National Marine Park. Feel free to relax in whatever way you please. There’s no set schedule or need to rush. After approximately 1-hour, you will re-board the Samur and on the return trip, enjoy tropical fruits and rum punch.


    Need to Know:

    Note: This tour includes a limited amount of walking, mainly at the guests’ discretion at the beach. There will be sandy surfaces to negotiate at the beach and participants must be able to make their way onto and off both the zodiac and the sailing boat with limited assistance.

Swimwear worn under a cover-up; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; a towel from the ship; and flat, comfortable shoes or aqua socks are recommended. Snorkeling equipment is provided. There is a restroom on the boat but none at the beach. A small amount of cash is recommended if guests wish to purchase items such as waterproof cameras, t-shirts or caps on board the boat. Those who participate in any water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility.

    Marine Park Glass Bottom Boat

    Kralendijk, Bonaire

    Duration 1 1/2 hrs

    View the bountiful sea life in Bonaire Marine Park from the comfort of a glass-bottom boat, one of the easiest ways to glimpse the wonders below the water’s surface without the need to get wet!


    Depart from the pier and from the comfort of a 32-foot glass-bottom boat, you will enjoy a spectacular look at the underwater wonders in Bonaire National Marine Park. Just settle into a shaded seat and look through the window that runs down the center of the vessel.


    The waters here are teeming with marine life because the park was one of the first in the Caribbean to ban activities that damage the environment. In the 1960s, legislation was enacted to protect sea turtle eggs and nests. In the 1970s, spearfishing was banned, and it became illegal to remove coral. As a result, Bonaire Marine Park contains spectacular coral reefs that support a huge diversity of fish and other marine species.


    Your window into the wonders below will offer a view that continuously changes, as the boat slowly motors over one spectacular reef after another. While there is no telling what will what come into view, you can expect to see stands of elkhorn and staghorn coral, graceful sea turtles, and a dazzling spectrum of colorful fish that may include grunts, wrasses, goatfish, parrotfish and tangs. If you’re not sure of the exact marine species, just ask the naturalist onboard or refer to the fish identification chart on board.


    After spending approximately 75-minutes navigating the amazing waters of the marine park, you’ll return to the pier.


    Need to Know:

    Note: This tour includes a very limited amount of walking. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Light-weight, comfortable clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; and flat, comfortable shoes with a non-slip sole are recommended. There is no restroom facility on the boat.
