Snorkeling Klein Bonaire vs. Marine Park

Have done both.  KB is terrific if you want to do independent [have your own equipment], don't need any amenities [there is absolutely NOTHING on KB, including shade], and like to drift snorkel.  It can be difficult to get in the water at the beach the taxi drops you off at, though I've read that they will sometimes take you to the entry point so you can get in from the boat.

 

We've done several trips with Woodwind and they are FANTASTIC!!  Dee and her crew are very attentive and careful and informative.  They have all the equipment you need, including wetsuits if you want, and it's quality stuff - even masks with corrective lenses.  They do two stops, near KB and it's often a drift snorkel.  Crew is in the water with you to point out various fish, turtles, etc.  Highly recommend them.  They give you a very nice lunch on the way back to shore, as well as drinks.

 

This last time we went with Epic Tours, for various reasons, and it was a nice trip, though the boat itself [not a catamaran] wasn't all that comfortable.  However, we went north from town, rather than south, so we saw some "different" scenes on the beach.  Saw tons of fish, and even had dolphins swimming alongside the boat, which the woman running the tour said she has rarely seen in several years there.  They served beer/punch after the second snorkel stop.
