The water was not as clear as I would have liked the day we were there. However, I did enjoy the colorful coral. Captain Don's Habitat allowed us to use their ladders on the small pier to get into the water. They only would charge...More

We have made numerous trips to Bonaire and always enjoy diving La Machaca. It is an easy dive from Captain Don's and Buddy Dive. In past years we have encountered a huge green moray on the small wreck. No luck this year though.

La Machaca is both a great dive during the day and night. The wreck is very accessible in 45 feet of water and holds a variety of life. At night the Tarpon come out and follow you around the site.
