Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Weber's Joy

Weber's Joy, also known as Witches Hut, is another easy and worthwhile dive. If the current is favorable, you can even drift dive to 1000 Steps which is about 1 km away. On the stretch of road between Columbia and Karpata, 7 km North of Kralendijk.

An easy kick-out is all it takes. The beach is small with plenty of easy entry and exit points. Carry your gear a few meters from your car to the shore, and suit up. Just like most sites, Bonaire has made a special effort to provide parking and markings for divers. There is parking for three vehicles here, and several more along the road.

My first trip Bonaire. Amazing. Did shore dives at 23 different sites. Good dive but I didn't have much worthy to note in my dive log. The dive itself is very similar to 1000 steps, minus the walk! Again, there were other North dives that I much preferred (Karpata, Ol' Blue, Jeff Davis, Oil Slick).

This was our favorite site during this trip. We dove here 3 times, all with excellent results. Moderately easy entry. Short kick out to reef and excellent conditions. Saw Eels, puffer fish, a large ray and lots of fish.

Previously known as Witch's Hut, we had enjoyed two dives here in 2007 and returned here eagerly. Unfortunately we were quite disappointed to find the reef much less healthy than we remembered. There was a substantial amount of dead and bleached coral, along with relatively little plant life and only modest numbers of fish. The road to the site is fine, although narrow in places. Across from the site is an old building with about six parking spots next to it; this is few spots relative to other dive sites in this area, so the site tends to be less crowded. From a parking spot to the beach is less than 100 yards down a gently sloping ramp with an occasional step. The entry itself is on coral rubble and is somewhat steep, so step carefully. I would recommend donning your fins in chest deep water; trying to walk in with fins on would be very difficult at this site.

Good site, easy dive, generally easy entry. Make sure all your stuff is secured somewhere else other than your car. Someone rummaged thru our stuff while we were diving.

This was a very comfortable dive. The parking space is somehow limited but depending on the time of the day you may be lucky. You don your gear, step down to the shore, and in the water you go, in no time. Easy entry, short swim to the drop off, plenty of aquatic life to keep you busy. This was a very relaxing dive.

This is an easy site to get to, with a small parking lot by the road. There is a short walk and a few steps down to the rubble beach; we had a small step down to the water for a pretty easy shore entry over a rubble bottom. Not much remains in the shallows thanks to Hurricane Omar in October 2008. The reef slope had some nice mounded star and flower corals, plus some large brain corals. We saw many flamingo tongue snails on the sea whips. Typical fish life swims here, including a decent-size porcupine fish.

This northern site is still on the two way road so no worries about having to drive the long way back through Rincon. Only about 5 parking spots here next to the concrete construction that was left to the elements probably some time ago. Easy entry down some concrete stairs and over coral rubble to the water. You can't see your car from the water through the trees. The coral starts quickly after a short swim over a sandy bottom dotted with life on your way to the sloping drop off. Typical Bonaire dive where typical means ALWAYS great no matter where you dive. Very healthy!

A short walk down a few stairs provided us with a very easy entry. We were diving very early in the morning during the "shift change" on the reef because we were flying out the next day and wanted a shallow, final, dive. While not as colorful as some other reefs on the island, the invertebrates were out and the squirrelfishes were not hiding. Came across many Pederson Cleaner Shrimp, all on Corkscrew Anemones. On one anemone there were three waving their antannae and swaying, advertising for business. Definately a nice spot for a shallow dive.

Very easy entry. Saw a Octopus eating and moving around a lot. Better in the morning. Lots of fish and a good variety.

This was the place our instructor from Wanna Dive took us for our Underwater Naturalist class. Lots of coral, sea life and a very healthy reef. The entrance was a little rocky but not too difficult. Visibility was incredible.
