Ducking and diving a turtle glided through the water. Around him pink and orange corals were scattered across the ocean floor. Rays of sun filtered through the water. Bonaire is beautiful. So who wouldn’t want to go snorkelling?
Apart from the fact you’ll look absolutely fantastic in the goggles, you get to see everything first hand. Once you get used to breathing with the apparatus you can easily float on the surface of the water and swim amongst the fish. From tiny silver ones to huge multi coloured ones there are hundreds of fascinating species to find.
After you’ve tired yourself from all the swimming you can head back onto the boat to relax. Either work on your tan, laze about in the sun, or have a light snack to refuel yourself. Don’t forget to stay hydrated though – the sun can be extremely draining.
For those who want to get up close and personal with the fish but not get wet there’s an alternative… Semi-Subs.
They don’t completely submerge into the water like submarines but they sit just below the surface. After making your way down from the top of the boat you just have to sit back, relax and watch the underwater world from the safety of somewhere dry.
Once you’ve had your fill of the water head back on land and wander round the town. There are quaint little cafes and shops of all sorts.
