          The reef right off the Buddy Dive Resort was one of the worst. The best dive over at the island away from Bonaire. I found the dive masters on the boat, not really helpful. They didn't do our tanks, check our air or point out anything in the water. Compared to Cayman islands, Cozumel, Belize, Costa Rica...they would be at the bottom. The reefs were okay . It was diving, so I did enjoy what I could see. Next time you go diving, maybe you could ask the divemasters for a specific site that you did research on?
