This was our 5th trip to Bonaire, all at Divi Flamingo and with Divi Dive
Bonaire. The food at the resort is superb at breakfast and Ok at lunch and
dinner. Our dive shop had breakfast included in the package, but we were on
our own for lunch and dinner and this is the best way to do it. We were
able to walk 10-15 min. to downtown and ate at some excellent restaurants
(Capreccio's, Crocantino's, and It Rains Fishes are three fine examples).
The dive operation is excellent. Our two divemasters, Laurel and Rofino,
are superb. We have been with them before and will ask for them again. The
boats are fine, nothing fancy, but fine enough. The dive sites were all
within 15 min. and the reefs were healthy with plenty of critters, some
turtles, lots of morays (spotted and golden), frogfish, octopus, seahorses,
juvenile drum, and many others.We did not see any green morays or
sharks.The viz was about 60-80 feet most of the time. Shore diving from the
resort is easy and the reef in front of the resort (Calabas) is excellent
with plenty of aquatic life. We did one night boat dive, but a night dive
off the resort pier is about equal to a boat dive. 
   All in all, Bonaire is a great dive destination, and we'll go back with
our dive shop (Wateree Dive Center in Columbia, SC) and stay at Divi
Flamingo again and dive with Divi Dive Bonaire again also. I hope Air
Jamaica will continue to service Bonaire. We have flown with them twice
down there and no problems. ALM is another story (disaster is a better
term). I can't wait to go again.
