Went out of my way to rent a pickup and take some friends diving. We all found it rough entry and exit at all sights. This experience has changed since the last time I dove due to loss of sand from hurricanes. Be forewarned and be careful. You no longer can find the book with the dive sight info and... More

What a wonderful experience to dive in the Bonaire National Marine Park! The diversity of marine life, coral, animals and fish was astounding. Each dive had it's own characteristics and interests. Highly recommend for shore diving!

Accessible shore diving, though can be an adventure entering and exiting. Boat dives are useful, but wouldn't pay for a package of more than 6 on a week stay. More than enough shore diving if have a truck rental.

Bonaire offers the healthiest, most beautiful reefs in the Carribbean. Even diving three times a day, you can never get enough of the beauty.

Having dove every island in the Caribbean except three, Bonaire is without a doubt the top dive destination. Marine life is plentiful and reefs are healthy, Most dives need not exceed 60 feet with many being shallower. There are some lionfish but not to the extent of other Caribbean islands. Shore dive locations are plentiful but boat dives to Klein... More

Pristine, varied around the island, so easy to find a site and dive from shore. Also night diving is also easy
