The dive crews and boat captains were great, as well as the staff. Packed
WAY to many clothes! All you need is a couple pair of shorts and a few
tshirts.  Very layed back.. Had such a great time have already rebooked for
Nov 2005! If you are not a diver, then Bonaire is NOT the place for you. 
Easy to get around the island....only driving rule is
really......."just don't hit anything".  Would strongly recommend
to anyone.  Made 17 dives in 5 days, with over 15 hours of bottom time!!!

Capt Don's was hooked up with someone with the airlines (Air Jamacia), they
came by the hotel on Thursday before we left on Saturday. They take your
passport, ticket, departure tax and $20. fee and they get your boarding
pass, which then allows you EARLY check in. We went to the airport at 10am
and checked in our luggage, eventhough our flight was not until 3:10pm!
When we got to the airport at 1:30 that afternoon, the line to check in way
SO LONG!!!! It was WELL worth the $20 fee.
