“Fine wreckdive”
Review of Hilma Hooker

Ranked #20 of 106 things to do in Bonaire
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 14, 2013

If you forget about the wrecks of the Red Sea (nothing compares to Thistlegorm, so do not start comparing), this i worth the dive! Nice to see how corals take the ship. Can be dived from shore, but the swim is long. If you have a package from your diving centre, this is well worth spending one or two boatdives here.

Being British we just had to dive this wreck and it was as good as any you will find in the red sea. Sitting in nearly 30 meters of water at the deepest point, this offers a perfect wreck profile. 84 meters long, you can swim around this in one dive, admiring the tarpon that swim around it. Finish off with a mooch around the coral garden that it lies next to.

We dive HH every visit. It's an easy wreck dive as she's laying on her side. Usually barracuda, sometimes tarpon, and this trip a ray. Propellers make for a good photo op. Its a short reef swim from either the HH entry or as we did Angel City. There are mooring balls to guide you on your swim out

Easy entry and easy (kind of long) swim out to the wreck. As others had mentioned, it is very cool to see the wreck fade into view.
I will say that--unless you just love wrecks--this one is not really much more than a wreck. Some interesting growth on one side, but it really hasn't quite come to life the way older wrecks have. In about 50 years I'm sure it will be great!
