Who has the best dive sites in the ABC's? What did you enjoy

We are going to the ABC's n November and plan on diving several sites. We haven't been to the ABC's but have dove much of the Caribbean. What was your favorite dive and why? Thank you in advance.

I love diving in Aruba! I have heard that diving in Bonaire is divine, but mostly shore diving.

Aruba has an airplane wreck you can penetrate, a few gorgeous wrecks (Jane C, Star Gerren, Debbie II, Antilla), and the marine life is top notch. I've seen Slipper Crabs, Sting Rays, Spotted Eagle Rays, Nurse Shark, Nudibranchs, Seahorses, Cuttlefish, and the usual turtles, pufferfish, eels, barracuda...

Fly N Dive has the most bottom time and the best DM and DI. if you arr diving multiple days, sometimes they will adjust the sites according to what you're looking for :)

Come to Aruba! You will love it! I keep trying other places to dive, but I keep returning to Aruba.

Our favorite dive in Aruba (that is open to the public) was a drift dive of the Fingers.

In general, in the ABC's, diving and snorkeling are best in Bonaire, then Curacao and, lastly, in Aruba. What you see in B+C is much nicer than what you see in A.

I have been to all 3 islands and find Bonaire the best , boat dives 2 times a day, yes Dive does have walk in dives . I thought the marine flora was the best and had very good marine life. I will be in Aruba Sept 15th thru Oct. 1 and have had some interesting dives there. Bonaire is mainly a dive Island, my wife does not dive. She is a gambler and Bonaire only has 1 casino, Aruba has many and Curacao has some of the most out dated casinos I have seen in years .

have a good time

I know this is the Aruba forum, but Aruba and Curacao SCUBA cannot hold a candle to Bonaire.

I love Aruba and love diving and snorkeling Mangel Halto and diving Jane Sea.

Lots of marine life and usually great visibility.

I did a few dives in Bonaire and Karpata was the BEST imaginable.

We'll be in Aruba in 8 weeks and plan on snorkeling at Catalina Cove and Mangel Halto.
