Gear up at this turn-out-- the entry is very close. Hold on to your buddy's shoulder as you walk to the sandy bottom.

My first trip Bonaire. Amazing. Did shore dives at 23 different sites. This was a solid dive although I do prefer the 'double reef' dives. The surface swim was not bad and it was very easy to align when returning.

One of our new favorite dive sites in the south of Bonaire! The entry is pretty easy over rocks, with a nice swim out over isolated coral patches and some regrowing Staghorn and Elkhorn corals. There is no mooring buoy here, so you must navigate on your own. The reef slopes gradually and is covered with a mix of hard corals, whip corals, and sponges. Several large sand channels make the scenery interesting. We saw tons of damselfish, many types of large parrotfish, 2 barracuda, angelfish, and schools of chromis. Don't forget to watch for cleaner shrimp hiding in anemones. This site is definitely worth the drive down south.

Very Nice. Easier surf conditions than "Alice in Wonderland" caused us to try this site. Swam 30 minutes out and 10 back due to fairly strong current. Saw a juvenile Hawksbill turtle at end of dive.

Pristine and healthy reefs! Look carefully and you'll see the scorpion fish and the frog fish looking back. Mostly smaller fish but many of them. Entrances & exits don't come much easier.
