Just returned from our 4th Christmas trip on the island. Dec 18 through Jan 1. As with every trip, there were things that stay the same and lots of new things...

Was there actually a problem with jet skis during your trip? Ive only seen two in ten years on Bonaire and one of them is on a trailer across from Carib Inn.

just to clarify .. there is no commercial lease of jet skis allowed ..it is against the law .. what you saw were the "grandfathered" jet ski's privately owned when the law was passed - it was the holidays and since a great number of bonairian youth are educated off island ,, they were all home and on the water .. also for your information jet ski's are not available to cruisers as well as someother watersport activities... we have enuf problems with the atv rentals...

Hi everyone - just to clarify - boats were the primary culprits. There were a few of those grandfathered jetskis around Donkey, but not as close to shore. My fault for a generalization.

yes there were a lot of boats but it was holiday time and the people here had the opportunity to be on the water. over the holidays there were 2 serious boating accidents caused by rented boats by careless operation and lack of respect for the BMP regulations .. non of the boats involved were in use by locals...

Pietri, thanks for clarifying about the jet skis. I'm pleased and relieved to hear they are not available for rental.
