I believe officially food is not supposed to be taken off of the ship. However many people do take buns with cold cuts or muffins etc. from the buffet. If you take some ziplock bags, you can bag it...

Coki was completely calm the day I was there. Not hard to avoid the rocks at all as you swim around the rock outcrops to either side of the small bay, not over them. Some people were even standing...

I was there 2 weeks ago (went solo as hubby was laid up with a sore back). We were the only ship in port. Coki was almost deserted and no one hassled me for anything, I put my towel and bags down on...

Champagne Reef is right off shore once you get there. You don't need a guide to snorkel the reef. We did a day tour with Levi of Bumpiing tours and it included Champagne Reef as well as Titou Gorge...

I actually heard from the water taxi operator and others who have snorkeled Klein Bonaire that fins are not needed and actually discouraged in order to avoid damage to the coral.

Thanks Blue Water. I have read most of those reports you refer to including Mitsugirly's photos reviews and the photo reviews on trip advisor. Though St. John looks great, I think I prefer to avoid...

I have heard that the snorkeling at Coki is superior so that is where my destination will be unless I hear something that convinces me that snorkeling is superior elsewhere on the...

Thanks for your report clownfish cruiser. I plan to spend at least half a day at Coki on the beach and snorkeling while my husband likely golfs. When you caught the taxi at port, did the taxi drop...
