We also wanted high quality boats for an affordable price
In the beginning of 2020 we stayed on Bonaire for vacation, just like you. And we (Pim and Renske) fell in love with this beautiful island. Pim is originally a ship carpenter, and Renske used to sail in the Dutch top team. So there was already a great love for boats.
Someone invited us to go sailing for a day. Wow! How beautiful it was here on the water, for us this was the most beautiful day of our holiday. And then the penny dropped, we are going to live here, and we are starting a boat rental on Bonaire so that we can also provide other people with such a day out.
A dream became reality for us to live on such a beautiful island and to be able to rent out our beautiful boats every day to families and friends who all enthusiastically leave the water with a big smile. What else do you want?
How much fuel do you use per trip?
For half a day you are on average at 10/15 liters and for a whole day you are between 15/25 liters. It really depends on how much you are snorkeling or boating. With the fun tube, the consumption is slightly higher. But during the trip you can keep track of the consumption of the fuel gauge on the dashboard so that you will never be faced with surprises after a pleasant day on the water.
What happens to my reservation if the weather is bad?
Unfortunately, we cannot influence the weather, so if the weather unexpectedly becomes bad due to rain/wind or thunderstorms, we will try everything to reschedule. If this does not work due to the end of the holiday, you will of course receive a refund.
What's the best way to pay it?
You can book online with a credit card, otherwise you can pay at the jetty with a debit card or cash.
Is the boat insured and what to do in case of damages?
Yes, the boat is insured for damage to the boat itself or damage to third parties. We do require a deductible of $500. In the event of reckless sailing behaviour, deliberate sailing damage or alcohol consumption, the insurance will lapse and the damage will be recovered from the main driver.
Is there damage? Call us immediately and sail no further. In case of emergency, call the Coast Guard on 913. This number is also listed on the dashboard.
Can I rent a fun tube or wakeboard?
We have two fun tubes: The Donut and Flat Disc. Renting a wakeboard is also an option. Guaranteed fun on the water for young and old! Pay attention: There needs to be a minimum of 3 people on board to use a fun tube or wakeboard.
