Welcome to Ocean Frontiers,
the exclusive home of MV BONITA
Introducing MV BONITA, a 37 foot Axopar boat available for private snorkeling/eco-adventure charters in the Turks & Caicos Islands. Our charters run on your schedule and are planned keeping your wishes and current weather conditions in mind to guarantee that you will have the best possible experience with us.
Since 2018, #MVBonita has been the vessel of choice of the selective traveler keen on exploring beyond the popular atractions near Grace Bay. With her modern, sporty, European design and the perfect day-charter deck-layout, she offers you very comfortable seating for up to 7 in the shade plus a generous sun lounger on the bow. Twin, super quiet, 300hp outboard engines and an exceptionally smooth riding hull, propell us swiftly to our spectacular snorkeling spots.
“From snorkeling to cliff jumping, to swimming in caves and walking along deserted beaches, this trip was simply PHENOMENAL.”
You determine what time you want to depart as we only book one charter per day. This also means that you can extend your trip on the go if you wish to do so.

HIGHLY QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED CREW
Your skipper brings over 30 years of experience with him, captaining vessels in both local and international waters.
Ernesto – Captain, Instructor & Co-owner
Born in 1968 in Caracas, Venezuela, he developed a love for the sea as a small child when his parents used to take him to the beach on weekends. At the young age of 14, he got certified as an Open Water Scuba Diver which opened a whole new world for him to explore, and so cemented what would become his future career choice. Over the years, he worked his way up to become a scuba instructor and boat captain. Diving and teaching in many locations around the caribbean, he gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in both Scuba and boat handling skills which later allowed him to step into the luxury Yacht industry captaining Yachts (private, charter & deliveries) throughout the Western Mediterranean Sea. Missing the endless summer in the caribbean, he decided (in 2018) to embark in a new venture which led him here to the beautiful Turks & Caicos Islands, where he enjoys sharing his knowledge and showing visitors the beauty and secrets of the local marine environment.

“The best day of my life” was how our 7 year old son described the day as we pulled back into the marina… Ernesto and Lynn were fantastic and super knowledgable about the local area. They were very open and honest describing the various areas we could visit and what to expect at each during our course setting briefing.”
