EASY entry. Park and it is a short walk to the water. There was a current, so be careful as you head out. There is a private pier attached to the hotel, but you can easily enter & exit from the beach. Lots of fish and easy dive.

ON Bari reef you can see all there is to see on Bonaire in one dive site. The one problem is that you have to get permission to dive there from the property

We descended to find a feeding hawksbill turtle and three queen angelfish. The rest of the dive was relaxing with lots to see. This was the last dive of the day and the ease of entry was definitely welcome.

Easy access to the water. Better for divers than snorkelers but plenty to see if you stay around the old pier.

Very easy entrance and calm dive. There isn't anything special about this spot. It's just a relaxing dive to enjoy if you need an easy dive or don't want to travel up north or down south.

Lots to see handy access and it's free. One diver told us there is as much to see near the pier snorkeling as they saw diving from a boat!

Bari Reef is the house reef for Sand Dollar Condos, Buddy Dive and Captain Don's. It is one of the richest wildlife areas on Bonaire. Frog fish, seahorses and a cloud of moon jellies on a full moon night dive are just a sampling of what we saw the first week of June, 2015.
