Sailing on Bonaire
At Caribe Watersport you can rent different types of sailing boats, for young and old, Caribe Watersport has 5 keelboats (Div. Centaur, Ufo, Skarl). Caribe Watersport is not a large rental company, so maintenance, cleaning, issuing and receiving are carried out personally and with consistent quality.
The strong northeast trade winds or east trade winds together with the strong currents in the rough sea make sailing in the Bonaire region not easy. As long as you remain in the coverage of Bonaire, these elements can be parried well, but if you go sailing outside the coverage of Bonaire, they are formidable opponents and higher demands are made on the experience of the crew and the material used. The west coast of Bonaire near the hotel zone is perfect for a peaceful sailing trip.
