About The Diving:
With six days of boat diving, a multitude of shore diving sites on the island and 24/7 diving off the dock at the house reef, you'll have plenty of bottom time to see all the island has to offer. Bonaire's underwater topography consists primarily of easy to navigate fringing reefs interspersed with occasional dramatic walls. The Southern end of the Island features a unique double-reef structure that features shallow and deep reefs and ‘lakes’ of sand where grouper, eagle rays and young turtles are often encountered.
Highlights include pristine sites on the small island of Klein Bonaire, awe inspiring cathedral-like conditions at Salt Pier in the South, and gorgeous deep walls and mountainous star coral off Ledonia’s Leap and Karpata in the North. If you’re interested in macro life, the sites closer to town are excellent for critter hunting. At Bari Reef and Something Special, divers regularly encounter photogenic critters like frogfish, anemone shrimp, juvenile trunkfish, and spotted drums. The Island is also home to an abundant population of all of the major species of Caribbean Moray Eels from the massive Green, to the elegant Chain, and tiny Chestnut. The Divi’s Calabas Reef is home to octopus, juvenile fish, and massive tarpon.
