Comments We go to Bonaire 1-2 a year. As we get older just love the freedom of shore diving and Bonaire is awesome for Macro Photography, the only tough part is cleaning up a couple of thousand pictures. The only bad was the storms running through did mess up the vis but it was still great diving. Dive Friends were great but no boat dives on this trip so we were easy customers. Salt Pier was great, but we decided to wait out a thunderstorm passing through. Lots of underwater life including turtles which my wife just loves. As for our resort, Our condo is a 2 min walk to the dive ladder and when done, the wife can shower off and hang out by the pool. We’ll be going back in March, and have to finally install a ceiling fan in the bedroom.
