Virtual Bonaire
Usage Information


The images contained on this site reflect the scenery of Bonaire at the time the images were taken. Construction, weather, accidents, donkeys, people, iguanas, birds, and other natural and unnatural forces may have altered the areas in question since the images were taken. We therefore take no responsibility for the accuracy of such imagery at any point in time, other than the point in time at which the image was taken. All images containing people were taken in public locations, in full view of those people. Anyone finding themselves in one of our images who prefers not to be seen here on Virtual Bonaire should let us know, however, and we will digitally remove them (from the picture), providing they are right about being in the image and are recognizable.

Technical Stuff

Playing the 360° panoramic images requires either a Java enabled browser or QuickTime Player.

Most Web browsers are Java enabled unless:

  1. You or the person configuring it intentionally disabled Java - use your help system to figure out how to enable it again; or

  2. You have an early version of Windows XP or Internet Explorer 6 which did not include the Java run-time - in which case IE should prompt you to download the Java runtime module so you can use the Java-based BeHere Panoramic Viewer as soon as you request to use said Viewer..

You may obtain the QuickTime Player from Apple Computer Corp. by clicking here.

Please note we will not provide personal technical support for the use of this site. Should you have questions, please go to the Everything Else Bonaire section on BonaireTalk and ask for assistance there.
