Larry, a former dive master on Bonaire, has opened a very exciting dive
operation, making boat diving to the east coast of Bonaire a daily
adventure. Larry helped to design the 30' rigid hull Zodiac 920, which runs
on (2) 225 Yamaha 4 stroke engines. He runs a very safety concious
operation - unlike any I've ever seen. The day we went was choppy, windy,
and rainy - but the diving was excellent (an easy drift dive). There were 6
of us on this trip, the Marine Park Director joining us on his day off.
Spotted eagle rays, turtles, large rainbow parrots, green morays, and
tarpons too many to count were among the sightings. The coral formations
are unusual, and there are numerous sea fans. Entry back into the boat,
using an unusually tall ladder was as easy for me at 118 lbs., as it was
for a man more than 300 lbs. The operation also does unique dives to wrecks
and to Washington Park. Contact: www.larryswildsidediving.com.
