Comments We have been to Bonaire 5 times. This time we had the priviledge to dive with Bas ( you can get details about him on the Bonaire WEB site. He took us shore diving on the east side which is hard to do on your own since the conditions vary greatly. We saw large stuff ie. turtles, eagle rays, tarpon and had two great dives. Mu husband and sons went with him later in the week and had two really neat dives on other dive sites. There is current on the east side and I wouldn't recommend it for a beginner diver since the shore entries/exits can be complicated. Bas mostly dives the east side and knows his stuff. He likes to do 1 1/2 hour dives. We will dive with him again. Bring your own water and lunch.

On the flip side, on a previous trip we dove with Larry's Wildside and had not good experiences. We had to go to the North side to a spot we could have shore dove ourselves and had to cut a dive short because of current and visibility. He promotes the east side but mainly does one or two dive spots there. He does have a new boat and an assistant but dives are limited to 45 minutes and cost $100 for two dives. We definitely will not dive with him again.

Don't fly Air Jamaica!!!
