Bob Mallin's Dive Log
Town Pier on 7/10/2003
I was a little disappointed after all of the hype about town pier. I did see some very cool sponges and orange cup coral. There is a lot of macro-life there as well. There were too many divers and saw more buoyancy problems than I care to comment about as well.
Salt Pier on 7/10/2003
We did this dive at about 4 pm and the sun casts very cool shadows across the pilings of the pier. There is not as much encrusted coral etc as there is on Town pier, but there is also less junk on the bottom, and we saw more varieties of fish and other life.
Angel City on 7/10/2003
Enjoyable double reef, with a lot of brain coral formations, in the 10 meters of sand between reefs, lots of fish. Good dive for beginners or intermediate.
Alice In Wonderland on 7/10/2003
This was the best reef dive we had on Bonaire. The reef was very healthy both the inner and outer reef. They say you can see the outer reef from the inner reef, but we could not -- swam a couple hundred feet blind and the reef came into view. There was a beautiful 5ft green Moray that lives here and we were lucky enough to see him swimming in the open.

Nice wreck, visibility was a little disappointing however, 40-50 ft. Reef around wreck was nice, less fish than I would have expected.
