Guided Bonefishing excursions on Bonaire
Bonaire offers one of the best bonefishing locations in the world! In fact, many of Bonaire’s fishing visitors have been coming back for over thirty years, just to bonefish here on Bonaire.
Bonefishing is done under the guidance of a local guide, as the areas where bonefishing takes place are on private property, within the marine park, and has bird nesting areas and the flamingo sanctuary closeby. Trespassing can result in a fine.
Local guide and charter captain Chris Morkos from Piscatur Fishing Charters has been bonefishing for almost 40 years now. He knows all the areas where one can fish, but is always respectful of local laws and regulations. Visitors should be aware that all bonefishing is catch and release.
The Bonaire Marine Park
The fringing reef surrounding Bonaire is a National Marine Park from the high water mark down to a depth of 200 feet/60m. Every diver who has not dived on Bonaire within the last calendar year must attend a diver orientation for the Bonaire Marine Park regulations and information. Additionally, you are required to pay a nature fee, which is necessary to enter Bonaire's waters legally. The nature fee cost is US$40.00 for all water activities, and proceeds help support park management and services. The nature fee can be purchased online.
