You’ll board a famous glass-bottomed boat on this trip, as you head out to explore Bonaire’s crystal-clear waters. Once skippered by French explorer Jacques Cousteau, this super-sleek catamaran is purpose-built for underwater viewing. You’ll trace a path out to the island’s National Marine Park – where the sea is teeming with colourful fish and coral reefs – to drop anchor. Look across the water and you’ll see the uninhabited island of Klein Bonaire, then head into the boat’s underbelly for a proper look beneath the waves. Set up like a long gallery, there are floor-to-ceiling glass windows which give you unrivalled views of parrot and butterfly fish. If you’re lucky, you might even see a hawksbill turtle. Drinks and snacks are served on deck, and remember to bring your swimming gear along – there’ll be time for a quick dip when the captain drops anchor.
