“I have been snorkeling with Renee for my last seven trips to Bonaire on an almost daily basis during my two-week trips. The guided snorkels were incredible! She has an eye for finding the most elusive little creatures and caters to your requests. If she knows you haven’t seen some specific fish, she will go out of her way to find it for you!!! I have seen Frogfish, Seahorses, among many other fabulous finds while with Renee. Her shore snorkels are like having your own personal snorkel guide at your convenience for a very reasonable rate! She is always very attentive to any special need you may have on land or in the sea.”

“We’ve been going on snorkel trips with Renee for 20 years; the reef environment has changed and evolved, so each outing with her is a new adventure, and we learn and/or see different things. Name what you’d like to see, and if it’s there, Renee will show it to you! In years past it was a frogfish and then the encroaching lionfish; this year it was the first sightings of close-to-shore queen angelfish and queen triggerfish. Schedule time with her early in your Bonaire visit, so that you can apply what you’ve learned in later snorkeling. I especially like that she offers 1-, 2-, or 3-stop trips, which enables the possibility of seeing different types of reef environments.”

Renee’s vast experience and intimate knowledge of Bonaire’s reefs will reward visitors with memorable sightings of some of the island’s most elusive creatures.

If you desire to snorkel a specific location, Renee will take you there.

If you wish to find and photograph a specific marine animal, most likely Renee can show it to you!

If your spouse or significant other is off diving, don’t be left on shore! Call Renee for a customized snorkel tour.

Snorkel locations are chosen based upon your personal preference for corals, fish, and depth, (all excursions are shore snorkels–Bonaire’s north or south leeward coast), as well as upon sea and weather conditions.

I have been snorkeling with Renee’s Snorkel Trips for 26 years and I have nothing but very high praise for the job she does. She knows all the fish, she knows all the best snorkel spots, she can help you in and out of the water and she has a wonderful demeanor. She is reliable, professional and will show you an experience you will want to repeat many times over.”
