I just found this Snorkeling Guide e-Book at http://store.tropicalsnorkeling.com/bonaire-snorkelingguide.html. The idea of carrying a guidebook as a weightless download on the netbook is very attractive. Has anyone used it? Was it useful? Would you recommend it?

I heard about this e-book as well and just purchased it online. I have only looked through it and on the surface, it looks great. It appears to be pretty detailed information (including pictures) about entry/exit, directions, fish-life, the author's recommendations about snorkeling in general, etc. It seems like good value for the relatively cheap price.

As I mentioned in a previous post/thread: "I was lucky enough to get hold a preview copy for our trip in August and found it very helpful and current. Their research trip was just this last spring. I have been a fan of their website for a long time, and was nipping at their heels for detailed information on snorkeling locations when they returned."

Denise, welcome to the forum. You've found a great source of information about Bonaire. Keep us posted as your July trip gets closer. I'm sure you'll have questions

Susan, I just found your other post. Thanks for the recommendation. Since they say they make corrections and updates as needed, I think I'll wait until just before our trip in Feb. before I download it.

My husband and I downloaded this e-book and found it very useful and accurate. You can print just the info (no pictures) from a section formatted just for printing and then take that in the car with you for reminders about where to enter each site. We tried most of the recommended sites and appreciated the tips about what to avoid. Even friendly divers sometimes don't understand why a site they found excellent may not be as enjoyable for a snorkeler.
