Day 1: International flight from the U.S. to Bonaire. Upon arrival, transfer to our resort. In the evening, sunset cocktails and dinner. Includes: (D).
Day 2: Introduction to the program, assistance with snorkeling. Boat snorkeling excursion in the afternoon. Includes: (B), (D).
Day 3: Morning and afternoon are devoted to snorkeling. From our vans and our chartered boat, we visit shallow protected reefs. We have also planned excursions to various regions of the island: Goto Meer Lake, Arawak petroglyphs, Rincon etc. Includes: (B), (D).
Day 4: The Bonaire Marine Park, which protects the marine environment from the high tide line to a depth of 200 feet, has allowed the reef to thrive while also infusing an unmatched environmental sensitivity throughout Bonaire's water-oriented community. While other islands have continued traditional spearfishing activities, on Bonaire, it's been illegal since 1972, and the fish know it. Includes: (B), (D).
Day 5: Bonaire offers the snorkeler opportunities to see more species of fish, in greater numbers, more intimately, than any other Caribbean destination we know. Gold-specked French angelfish will actually approach you. Schools of blue tangs, sergeant majors, chromis, and French grunts are prolific. Includes: (B), (D).
Day 6: Trumpet fish, groupers, peacock flounders, butterfly fish, coneys, chubs, and more, all circulate without fear of human presence. There are more parrotfish on Bonaire than we've seen (or heard!) anywhere else. Bonaire is truly a fish lovers’ paradise. Although not as profuse, we may also encounter hawksbill turtles, sting rays, and harmless nurse sharks. Includes: (B), (D).
Day 7: We plan to rent several large vans for our entire visit so that, as a group, we may independently explore some of Bonaire's best shore snorkeling sites, many of which are off the beaten track. After our days activities, we will use these vans on several occasions, to "explore" some of the island's best restaurants. Includes: (B), (D).
Day 8: After breakfast, we transfer to the airport for our flight home. Includes: (B).
- In case a single participant is willing to share a room and we can match him/her, the single supplement (US$650) does not have to be paid.
