Are you visiting Bonaire as a cruise ship passenger?


For Cruise passengers, our nearest location is Karel’s Beach Bar, right next to the cruise terminal and in the center of Kralendijk. Our water taxi departs every hour from this location on cruise days. With the German ships we even sail every 30 minutes!

Where to find us:

  1. To find Karel’s Beach Bar, walk from your cruise pier onto the shore, turn left and continue along the boulevard until you reach Karel’s Beach Bar. Here you will find our characteristic yellow counter, with a sign saying “tickets on board” or there is someone from our team who can sell you a ticket.
  2. Once you walk to the end of your cruise pier, turn left onto the boulevard. Along the shore, you will soon find a market where local people sell tours and activities. Look for the sign “Caribe Watertaxi” or a lady with a yellow shirt and possibly our LOGO. This lady will sell you tickets if needed or send you to Karel’s Beach Bar, if you already have tickets.

On Klein Bonaire, you will find the most beautiful beach in Bonaire. The white sand beach is called ‘No Name Beach’ and we will drop you off or pick you up here at a quarter to the hour. No Name Beach is the perfect place to relax, sunbathe and enjoy the still untouched nature on Klein Bonaire. Enjoy swimming, snorkeling and enjoying the crystal clear azure blue water. View the thousands of tropical fish and look for turtles hiding around the coral reef. This walk-in beach makes it simple and easy for you to enter the water for snorkeling and swimming.

Our water taxi departs from Karels Beach bar and is located in the center of Kralendijk on the Kaya J.N. Craane, diagonally opposite the cruise terminal every hour or even every half hour on German cruise boats. This is a 4-minute walk along the boulevard from your cruise ship.

  • Snorkeling gear: you can rent it on our water taxis ($ 5)
  • Bar on board: we offer you water, soft drinks, and beer (2 for $ 5)

Book now for a guaranteed spot on our Water Taxi to Klein Bonaire! Our Water Taxi will always bring you back to the cruise ship on time. 

Please note: Drink enough water on Klein Bonaire and apply yourself well with a modified sun protector. On all our water taxis there is a bar on board where we sell Water, Cola, Sprite, Beer or 2 drinks for $ 5, – Apart from an insanely beautiful beach, various shaded spots and bins, there are no facilities on Klein Bonaire. The lack of facilities is due to the fact that no commercial activity is allowed on the island. We also have garbage bins on board, so relieve the island and bring your waste back on board.
