Unlimited Shore Diving: Visibility averages 100 feet, and Bonaire's reefs enjoy the highest diversity of reef fish in the Caribbean.  In addition to over 350 different species of reef fish you may see hawksbill and green sea turtles, sea horses, rays, tarpon, reef sharks, seahorses, frogfish, and even the occasional whale shark. Bonaire's extensive reef system also hosts a prolific number of both soft and hard corals and sponges.

 

Rest in the shade have your drinks brought to you.

The hotel is conveniently located on a sandy beach only a few minutes from town.  The Dive shop and your scuba tanks are only steps away.

Flight  Schedule
Airfare is not included.  The airfare goes up and down.  Please let us know if you find a cheaper flight.

Feeding time at Bonaire Invisibles.  We always see eagle rays on the Southern dive sites. Debbie took several pictures of this one and its mate.

First dive of the week

Bonaire is the Park and Dive Capital of the World, Where you're the Dive Master and the pool is open 24/7. 

Every room gets a truck. Dive with the group or go exploring with your buddy. 

Shore diving here means freedom from dive boats, schedules, crowds and rough seas. The island has the most pristine and healthiest reefs in the world, thanks to the protection afforded by its marine park. You'll find dozens of dive sites, marked by more than 60 highly visible yellow stones along the road.   Load your gear and some tanks in your own truck, and pick a site. Shore diving is what made the island popular among divers more than 30 years ago, and today, it's what keeps divers coming back.

  In March I rented 24 trucks.  This is the first day when all the divers had to complete a buoyancy check, the only day we were all together.  The non-divers sat on the beach or at our hotel pool.  The rest of the week we were spread all over the island.

Dive Van

One of the trucks broke down and had to be replaced with the "Party Van". Everyone wanted to ride in the miniature clown mobile.  We could fit 21 if we kept the doors open.  It was only about 3 feet wide we were afraid the wind would blow it over.

Let me or one of the many Dive Masters show you the best dives sites.

Some of us had to fly thru Jamaica so we got our picture at Margaretville.

 

Congratulations to the New Advanced Divers.

Bonfire Party in Bonaire

We did walk in dives everywhere.  See where the water changes color? That is the reef.

Scuba Tim is a hardcore Parrot Island Diver even at 98 feet in Bonaire.

Bonaire trips are the best Parrot Island Diver trips.  Thank you all who went and made it the most fun group of Parrot Island Divers.

 

Michael's Photography class was a success.  I have thousands of excellent pictures, too many to use all at once.  I'll be rotating them out all year.
       

This is the dive from the hotel. Just walk in and dive anytime you want
