SHORE DIVING HEAVEN
Easy shore diving for all levels. Load up your rental truck and hit the road. You just look for the site markers and hop out and go for a dive.
CRYSTAL CLEAR WATER
The water is so clear that you may think you are in a swimming pool, or, an aquarium. It is such a treat to see the beauty of the underwater world without particulate in our photos.
COOL ARTIFICIAL REEFS
Many of the artificial reefs are fun to goof around on. The are also great props for interesting underwater pictures. Of course, it is a reef, so be careful not to touch, so all the living creatures stay safe.
LOVE BONAIRE DIVE WORKOUTS
In scuba diving, it’s important to stay in shape & practice your skills. In a place with such calm waters such as Bonaire, that’s easy to do. The tight wire is not one of the skills you need to practice!
SHARING WITH DIVE BUDDIES
When you see something cool, it’s important to get your buddies attention. Grabbing a fin is one way to do that. It also gives the benefit of making your friend laugh, which makes diving even more fun!
BEAUTIFUL SCHOOL OF FISH
The huge schools of Blue Tangs will awe you and make an excellent photo opportunity. There are many species of fish. It’s fun trying to id them all.
The ambient light is pretty amazing in these clear waters. Having enough a light lets you see the actual colors of the underwater fish and corals.
