Boats had one rinse tank for cameras.  Pier had one large rinse tank also. 
No shelves, no rooms dedicated to cameras. Everything had to be done in
your room.

Very nice large resort spanning a large area of beach or rock.  Several
restaurants and bars available. Close to town which of course is small.
Accomodations were bare-bones nice.  A/C would freeze us every time we were
in the room and management would not let us turn it off. DM's were OK.  We
had one that remembered us from Capt. Don's and he was good.  Fish life is
missing!  Very few schools of fish, no large morays, fewer lobsters, 3-5
frogfish. Lionfish were killed on every dive.  Coral seemed very healthy.
Salt pier is closed theoretically but we we still dove it one night.   Our
third trip to Bonaire over the past 10 years and probably our last due to
the decrease in fish.  Seems like the entire Caribean is being fished out!
