to do on
While Bonaire is well known for its diving, there are many other activities available ranging from active programs to more leisurely pursuits. At our Dive and Activity Center we have the information you’ll need to discover the Bonaire activity that is right for you! A member of the Bonaire activity staff is in the center to answer any questions you may have, as well as to assist you with recommendations on where to go and what to do. The center is also where you can sign up for the resort’s weekly activities.
Bonaire may be known as a “divers” paradise, but snorkelers will be happy to know they could spot over 75 different species of fish along the shallow reef terrace alone! Snorkeling is a perfect Bonaire activity for the whole family. But if you haven’t tried it yet, no problem, you can start now!
A dedicated boat to Klein Bonaire is the best way to discover the shallow reefs around this beautiful Island. Here one of our guides will show you around on one of the reefs.
In addition to a weekly boat snorkel trip, Buddy Dive also offers several guided snorkeling tours. One is along the edge of the mangrove forest, which serves as the “nursery” of the ocean. Among the highlights are the three-inch-long Barracuda and the bottom-dwelling upside-down jellyfish. Other tours combine snorkeling with activities such as kayaking or cave exploration. A Bonaire activity you cannot miss!
Slowly but surely Bonaire is starting to become known as a sport-fishing destination. There are several good outfits that can take care of the most spoiled fisherman. Do not expect the seven-story high flying bridge boats, rather somewhat smaller boats, with the crew that is even more eager to catch fish than the paying customer is. Try it and you’ll find out Bonaire has it all: Marlin, Tuna, Wahoo, Dorado, and even great bonefish!
This is one of the most popular Bonaire activities, and there are all sorts of ways to experience it. Take a guided kayak tour through the mangroves or to nearby Klein Bonaire. Combine the Klein trip with a guided walk and exploration of the island, or a snorkel along the island shallow terraces – a perfect place to spot turtles at rest! Or go for a leisurely paddle and explore on your own as you tour the coast in front of the resort.
Miles and miles of trails have been laid on Bonaire specifically for this sport. Literally, around every hilltop there are different vistas to enjoy. With such a wide variety of routes to choose from, we’re sure to be able to put together a tour that best suits your interest and fitness level. And although there’s not much traffic on Bonaire, to begin with, this sport really allows you to get away from it all!
The trade winds on Bonaire are legendary, providing for the most stable winds in the world and making the nearby area of Lac Bay famous as a top-notch windsurf destination. We schedule weekly introductory classes with one of the local outfitters at Lac for those with limited or no experience in the sport. So, if you have ever thought of trying, now is your chance. Don’t miss this Bonaire activity!
Kitesurfing is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world.
