Comments Dive shop went above and beyond in making sure tanks were available at all times. Dive operators left at 4:30 but had outside cages that had lock boxes that could be accessed at any time. Tanks were also kept on there private dock also easy access for a early or night dive.Gear room was also secured well with same type lock box. Fish life was better than we have seen in past trips. Lion fish are being hunted are not seen on some dive sites. Small truck from Total car rental showed a lot of rust but ran great and is much more user friendly than a small SUV. According to our dive guides coral was better on Klein Bonaire we did see a Sea horse on an experiment growing stag-horn coral from PVC pipe over at Klein. We only ate out a few times picking up K-fry and taking it back (they charge a 6% tax if you ate at the store). We also had a Pizza at Pasa Bon Pizza almost across from the marina (had a stop light in its sign)it was good. Room (208 Studio apartment) at Den Laman was nice had small kitchen clean and well kept.
