Marine Park
To enter the water around Bonaire you need a so-called STINAPA E-Ticket, which was formerly known as Stinapa token. This applies not only to divers, surfers, kite boarders, kayakers, snorkelers and other water sports enthusiasts, but also to those who go swimming in the sea around Bonaire or Klein Bonaire. That’s because this entire area belongs to the protected Bonaire National Marine Park. This national park, together with Washington Slagbaai National Park and Lac, is managed by the National Parks Foundation (STINAPA). This non-profit organization manages, maintains, promotes and protects Bonaire’s national parks. It is not a government agency and they do not receive any subsidy for their work. The source of income consists of the sale of the so-called nature fees with which the residents of Bonaire and visitors jointly contribute to the management of the beautiful nature of Bonaire. 
You can buy the E-ticket worldwide with a credit card online via

When you swim or dive please take very good care of the coral. Don’
