Set out on a voyage reminiscent of a time when the seas were plied by sailing ships that were not only transportation, but genuine works of art. The Samur is an authentic Siamese junk -- a hand-built and -carved relic of those days.

Set sail and glide smoothly under the distinctive red sail across the strait to uninhabited island of Klein Bonaire. During the journey, the captain gives information about the reef and its fishy inhabitants and shares with you the history of this Siamese sailing junk.

Drinks are served -- fruit juices and sodas -- and the crew hands out snorkel gear (fins, masks, snorkels and inflatable snorkel vests). After about 45 minutes, you’ll arrive at Klein Bonaire.

Jump into the Zodiac for a ride to the pristine white sandy beach. Snorkel from there or take the Zodiac to the outer edge of Ebo's Reef.

Those comfortable with drift snorkeling will find themselves, courtesy of the gentle current, back at the beach in about 20 minutes.

Time at the beach is about 60 minutes. Re-boarding the junk you’ll relax with a rum punch, fruit juice, soft drinks and platters of tropical fruits en route back to Kralendijk.

Notes:

Wear your swimsuit; bring a towel and sunscreen. Participants must climb a short ladder to enter the inflatable craft.
