I booked to go with them last Friday but it was canceled at the last I was the only one booked on the trip.

How did you contact them? I can't find a phone or email address. Help!

I am going to try and make another booking with them but I highly recommend the Woodwind as I have had some very enjoyable snorkeling trips with them.

I don't know anything about Compass Sailing but it would be very difficult to be better than the Woodwind. Dee always makes her trips most enjoyable and her skill and knowledge add greatly to the experience.

Woodwind gets my vote!!!

Tried to book with Compass for Friday snorkel but there isn't one. However they did offer me a sunset cruise, which I did not want. So this afternoon I went on the Woodwind and it was fantastic. Turtles everywhere, plus a load of fish. Highly recommended.

Hmmmmmmm --- seven postings in this thread and four of them with glowing mentions of Woodwind. Are these purely spontaneous?

Hi Patricia. What can I say. I have had fantastic trips on the Woodwind. I have tried twice to get on the Compass without success so i cannot comment on the Compass. So I can only comment on experience. Have you been on either of the snorkel trips?

Patricia, book a trip on the Woodwind and you'll figure out why everyone is so enthusiast. If you did already, I don't understand your reaction...

Patrica, do a keyword search on the Woodwind, you will understand.

Patricia, after reading about the Woodwind trips on this board for the last 16 months, we finally booked it 2 weeks ago to see why so many people talk about it. It was an unforgettable trip. Most people on board were returning customers, most had multiple trips that same week booked. That is customer loyalty.

Patricia, I hope you are not trying to imply that there is a conspiracy to support the Woodwind. That would simply be false. We started to sail on the Woodwind 16 years ago when it was owned by Renee. The trips were great then. After Dee and Ulf bought the boat we continued with them and have never been disappointed. Frankly, I have never met nor heard from anyone not pleased with Dee and her trips.

George you said that beautifully! I sail on Woodwind four or five times a trip and can't get enough when I am there. If you snorkel and truly want to see how to experience all that Bonaire offers under water, I would highly suggest Woodwind and also doing guided snorkels with Renee. When you go with Woodwind you see some great spots around Kline and one of them has tons of turtles. When you go with Renee you find some great spots to snorkel all along the shore. Don't forget Dee and Renee are in the water daily and know where all the unusual sitings might be! I have been snorkeling in Bonaire for 21 trips now and I still do Woodwind and guided snorkels with Renee and I am rewarded with many wonderful and unusual sitings of fishlife! I am sure that my husband's and my pictures from our last trip that were just posted will attest to that!
