Provisions

There are several good supermarkets in Kralendijk and although the selection might be better in Curaçao, the advantage of shopping in Bonaire is that everything is very conveniently situated. Several shops sell case lots at a reduced price.

Cultimara, is located in downtown Kralendijk, within walking distance of the dinghy dock. The Warehouse (located on the way to the airport from town) is the largest supermarket on Bonaire and delivers free. They receive fresh produce on Thursdays (you may want to call them to confirm 717-8700).

There are also a few more informal ones. In particular, near the Town Pier, Venezuelan produce merchants set up shop in a covered pavillion, and sell fresh product straight from the farm. Practice your Spanish a little before shopping here if you want to get the best price.

Fresh fish is also available on Bonaire, with Wahoo or Dorado being sold for as little as US$2.50 a pound. However, the fish sellers work out of their homes, and don't always have fish available, nor are always in. Ask a local how to find a local fish seller. The best time of the day is usually between 5 and 6pm, because then the fishermen have returned with their catches.

Posted on behalf of Dave Curtis of S/V Dea Latis

I just had my refrigeration compressor serviced by Air Cooling Services. They are a short walk north from Harbour Village Marina at the traffic circle, blue building. The lady in the office does not speak English but will put you on the phone someone who does.
It is summer here and all the AC/refrigeration shops are very busy. It took three days to get a technician to come to our boat.
We're happy with their service.

There are no longer 2 moorings near Customs and Immigration (yellow building with red roof at the end of North Pier). Officials told us it is fine to go to one of the public moorings or marina and then come in. Also, know that the currency is US Dollars. Harbour Village Marina has both 220 service and 110 (30 amp). If you arrive on a Sunday you will not be able to hail the Harbor Master or the marina with regards to birthing or moorings so you have to make some decisions on your own and then contact Harbour Village on 17 on Monday to get all settled up.

It is not possible to reserve moorings, it is strictly first-come-first-served, though there are almost always at least a couple of moorings available. In the unlikely event that all the moorings are occupied, you can usually tie up at the town dock (the north dock), or go into one of the marinas. Moorings on the south end are more convenient to town, but you get to experience loud music on the weekends. Northern moorings are more convenient to the fuel dock at Harbor Village Marina, and also much quieter.

Note that there is only a single immigration officer on duty, and he/she is sometimes at the airport instead of the customs office. They will usually give you a time when the immigration officer will be there. At the moment, they are strictly enforcing a 90-day stay within a 180-day window.

Immigration and customs are now in the same building near the Northpier . They have a small dinghydock at the southside of the Northpier (8/2014) . You can proceed directly to a free mooring ( 2 red/white mooringbuoys with mooringlines) or to the Marinas and go for clearance later by dinghy. Generally they have a lunchbreak from 12.00 till 14.00 h
