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.
