The blow hole was nice, the caves, there were just a lot of places to stop and take in the seanery. A couple of great places swim and snorkel.

We saw a lot of aquatic wildlife in many colours and sizes. Everywhere where we went snorkeling, the corals were dead and I did not enjoy the view of white coral that looks like it is covered in dust.

Diving is amazing around Bonaire! Really good for beginners through advanced. When you shore dive you are touring the island at the same time. Very easy to get around and dive sites are well marked. I have been to Bonaire 7 or 8 times. I recommend purchasing the book Shorediving Made Easy by Susan Porter.

I have been to the island many times through the years and enjoyed every single time. It's important to note however (in my opinion), this is a diver's destination. It's really, really cool with the little numbered rocks along the roadside to identify the dive locations, as well as the plentiful "drive-through" fill stations for diving air. My favorite of...

Loved the reef for scuba diving calm waters and clear visibility. We saw lots of turtles as it was egg laying season.

Each day we dove at least two dives. Warm, clear water, typically 80+ ft. viz. Soft corals and creatures everywhere. Huge tarpon, barracuda, spotted eagle rays, sting rays....diver's heaven.

I dived here whilst on a south caribbean cruise. I did two dives in Klein Bonaire - Epo's special and the Knife. The sites were very similar in species of fish and coral. The water was very warm.
