I am originally from Canada and have lived on the island since 2008. I speak fluent English as well as some Papiamentu - Bonaire's local Antillian language.
I spend my free time practicing my photography skills, scuba diving and showing snorkelers the best spots. I enjoy explaining fish identification and behaviors, educating while having fun.
Our local historians and archaeologists state that the island has been inhabited since 1100 BC by the Arawak Indians from South America.
Bonaire is volcanic in origin and has many interesting formations to discover. Bonaire is also 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 strives to protect our coastal waters and it's marine life.
Come and share Bonaire with me and see for yourself.
A Recent Review of this guide
Brenda was AMAZING! I highly, highly recommend her! We only had a short time in port but she was able to get us around the see everything we wanted to. She even went in the water with us as a snorkel guide to point out different fish and marine life. We could not be happier with the excellent service Brenda provided! If I ever get back to Bonaire, Brenda is the first person I am going to get in touch with! Thanks again Brenda you were great!
