I am originally from Canada and have lived on the island since 2007. I speak fluent English as well as some Papiamentu - Bonaire's local language. I originally came here to pursue a Scuba career - once here I loved the island and it's people so much I never left. I am constantly learning new information so that you will have an informative and accurate tour of Bonaire.
I spend my free time practicing my underwater photography skills, guiding scuba divers and showing snorkelers the best spots. I enjoy explaining fish identification and behaviors, educating while having fun. Over the years I have met many people and enjoy showing them the diverse beauty of Bonaire. The flora and fauna is immaculate - we even have a few species of flora and fauna that can only be found on this island. Flamingoes, Iguanas and our own sub-species of Yellow-shouldered parrots call Bonaire home.
Our local historians and archaeologists state that the island has been inhabited since 1400 BC. The island is approximately 24 miles long and between 3 to 7 miles wide. When we include our uninhabited island of Klein Bonaire we have a total land mass of approximately 112 square miles. Bonaire is volcanic in origin and has many interesting formations to discover. Bonaire is also fortunate to have 2 national parks; Washington Slagbaai as well as the Bonaire marine park. Bonaire is known as a 'Divers Paradise' - rated number one for shore diving in the Caribbean for many years. This is due in part to the efforts of our National Marine Park organization, who since 1979 has strived to protect our coastal waters and it's marine life.
Come to Bonaire and see for yourself.
