This was a nice reef but the current was pretty high moving toward the south. When entering on the south end of the reef the strong southerly current was not good so we made another pass entering from the Buddy Dive dock and doing a drift dive that ended perfectly at the entry/exit point of the Sand .Dollar Resort where...

Bari reef was just outside our hotel so we always started and ended out day by diving it. Not only was it super convenient but the scenery was always different. At certain times each day you could spot the same fish identifying it by the markings (especially evident at dusk going into our night dive). Swim about 50 meters out... More

The current here can be strong but the coral heads are incredible, a great variety of fish and, usually a turtle.

Bari Reef is the house reef for Sand-Dollar Condo's. So easy to dive if you are staying there. We did our check out dive here with Dive Friends Bonaire. Nice first dive after arriving on Bonaire.

The reef is easily accessibly by 1) Bonaire Dive & Adventure private pier or 2) by driving your truck up to the vacant land next to Den Laman condo. We saw a school of 4 huge jacks, many snappers, fusiliers, puffers, filefish, flute mouths, coral shrimps, moray eels, turtle, flounders, seahorse.

We stayed at the Sand Dollar and did our first two dives right here. Very easy in and out, two dive operators on site.

The public entrance is about a 20 minute walk from town past the yacht club, and just off the roundabout. There is a structure near here that has lots of coral on it, and is accessible just snorkelling. We stayed at the Sanddollar, so we had access to the their whole ocean front, which had more structures, and lots of... More

Hesitant to expose this spot to the rest of the world...but just a fantastic assortment of fish and critters here. Did this dive at sunset twice, and just loved every minute of it. 3 o'clock on the roundabout when you're heading into town!

My husband and I have working our way through all the dive sites on Bonaire and Klein Bonaire. Our next check off was Bari Reef. It was a great dive! The entry is from a sand beach. We spent some time at the tugboat New York and saw lionfish, thousands of garden eels, a puffer fish (which I haven't ever... More
