What is snorkelling?

Snorkeling is swimming on the surface of the water, with a diving mask on, and a tube specially designed for breathing underwater. Usually you wear swim fins, this enables you to swim greater distance without burning all your energy. While swimming with swim fins, u mainly use your legs and feet, and keep your arms crossed against your body.

This position will help keep you warm and preventing you from touching the corals with your hands, as most of them cannot survive human touch. Whilst snorkelling, the main thing you have to do is, enjoy the mesmerizing sights of the underwater world.

Night snorkel Bonaire

Night snorkeling Bonaire? Be aware that night snorkeling can be very dangerous. This is only advised if you are an experienced snorkeler or scuba diver and familiar with the Bonaire coastline and reefs. If the tide is low, and you are swimming in shallow waters, it is very possible that rocks and or hard corals get above the surface of the water, and are very hard to see. Above water orientation can be challenging while snorkeling at night. If you want to go snorkeling at night, be sure to go on a guided snorkeling tour. Usually provided by a local dive school or watersports center.

“We have visited Bonaire many times, and have been going on snorkeling trips with Blue Bay Bonaire, Seacow Bonaire, Woodwind Bonaire, Epic Tours and the Compass on Bonaire they are all great.
When we took the Melisa Sunset Snorkel Cruise, we were totally amazed by the beauty of this hand build Wooden Turkish Gulet “Melisa”. She is not only different from all the other glass fiber (white)traditional sailing boats but she truly breathes character.
Her large wooden teak decks with nice cushions were so easy to relax on. The way to walk around the whole ship was very convenient and there was no tilting like on other boats. For sure the most beautiful sailing and snorkeling experience we have had in the past 10 years on the beautiful waters of Bonaire.”
