This was our 5th trip to Bonaire and each time we have stayed in Harbour
Village. The accommodations are great as always and the beach is wonderful,
especially if you have kids. Upon our arrival Bonaire was experiencing an
algae bloom and the beach was covered with tiny dead shrimp in the morning
but the staff did a great job in cleaning it by 8 AM. After a couple of
days they were gone. The dive operation has undergone some changes in its
personnel since our last visit 18 months ago but it was still very
professional and well run. We dove strictly from the boat and mostly on
Klein. I was told that Hurricane Omar did some damage to Karpata and Oil
Slick but 1000 Steps was still intact and as beautiful as ever. One morning
we did a drift dive from Just a Nice Dive to Jerry's Sponges and our dive
guide, Alphonse found 5 seahorses and 4 frogfish. We also did another drift
dive from Angel City to Alice in Wonderland which was also very beautiful
and relaxed. While performing our safety stop we were lucky to encounter 6
reef squid that were just hovering around. All in all the diving on Bonaire
was great. We were lucky to come across schools of dolphin on our way to
our dive sites on two separate occasions. It's always a wonder to stand on
the bow and watch them race the boat. The Salt and Town Piers are still off
limits to diving but we did a couple of night dives to Something Special.
On one of the dives we tied a light to the line that leads to the reef and
came across a curious octopus on our way back. Very cool. We did not see
any turtles or rays and the green moray's were scarce. I was told that many
green morays died from some kind of bacteria but they were slowly coming
