Comments Having done many dives in Bonaire, and having done some recently in other areas, including Florida, Hawaii, and other Caribbean areas, it makes you realize how really special the diving is in Bonaire. In addition to the overall diversity of sea life, and the variance in the diving from north to south, and east and west coasts, Bonaire never disappoints. Carib Inn offers the very best in friendly, personal service, and their boats get out early and quickly to get the best selection of sites. The boats are uncrowded, and you get geared up and briefed when you arrive at the dive site. All of the divers are experienced, with normal dive time running around 70 minutes, and profiles are unrestricted if you are on computer. There are many prolific nursery sites, and turtles and spotted eagle rays are frequently spotted, as well as schools of dolphin, usually on the way to or from the dive. On this trip there were many long strings of pelagic tunicates floating in the water, offering a feast to all of the reef fishes. It was quite a sight. Schools of squid allow you to float right along with them in the shallows, and we saw some squid mating. Frogfish, numerous species of eels, octopus, barracuda, sennets, seahorses, batwing crabs, then the normal tangs, damsels, etc- there is just so much marine life that you cannot list it all. The outer reef on Angel City is one of our favorite sites for fish diversity and its topography. The rooms are great, and Bruce is always doing something to improve them.
