We spent two weeks in Bonaire, rented a pickup truck, and drove along the coast taking in as many shore dives as we could. Bari Reef was probably our favourite, followed by Salt Pier and Karpata. Our snorkeling friends enjoyed the shore dives too, and...More

My family loves diving here. The reef and fish life is some of the best we've seen, and the ease of shore diving in Bonaire makes it so much fun. Love the setup Bonaire has to shore dive on your own with most dive shops...More

This is really a must see in bonaire! Everything you could ask for and well worth the money! The tag is good for a year and is 10 per person/ I think 20 for scuba divers.

Beautiful coral, wonderful fish! I even say an spotted eagle ray snorkeling. Please use sunscreen that is coral friendly! We must protect this fabulous underwater wonderland!

The whole island is dreamy. Incredibly healthy coral and shore diving for days. I stayed for an entire month and only scratched the surface.

Definitely not worth repeating on my lifetime. Great spots to snorkel & dive however just hope something doesn’t happen to you out here, it’ll take them hours to find you or to get you help.

What everyone needs to see in Bonaire. You must pay 25 dollars, but it is worth far more than that to see the pristine waters of Bonaire. Whether snorkeling or diving, the reefs of Bonaire are truly remarkable. We have been to reefs all over...More

Bonaire stands out for its excellent protection of its beautiful reefs thanks to Don Stewart's initiative from the early 1960's on onward. Great, easy scuba diving and snorkeling from the shore of the main island and from smaller Klein Bonaire. No anchors. Mooring buoys for...More
