Comments My wife and I spent 2 weeks in Bonaire from January 17th to February 2nd. The first week was with a group of friends from Portland, Oregon with whom we travel and dive several times a year in the Pacific NW, Canada and warm water destinations. We were a group of 6 couples and stayed together in a 6 bedroom/6 bath waterfront villa in the Hamlet Oasis complex. We had direct access from our villa right onto the Cliff dive site. We had an outdoor shower, rinse tanks and secure locker storage.

We did our diving through Dive Friends with the 6-day unlimited nitrox package which costs $180 for repeat customers and $200 for first timers. We had 4 trucks that were rented through AB Car Rental. We did one morning of 2 tank boat dives with East Coast Diving and one morning of 2 tank dives to Klein Bonaire with Dive Friends. All other diving was shore based.

The east coast dives were spectacular on Funchi Reef and Turtle City, where we saw dozens of turtles, a pair of spotted eagle rays, a few green morays, lobsters, beautiful sea fans, schooling horse eyed jacks and needle fish and outstanding visibility in 78-degree water. ...
