Bon Bini Bonaire!

Easter is getting closer, and once again I will visit the Netherlands Antilles island of Bonaire. I'm looking forward to ten days of unlimited diving on some of the best coral reefs in the Caribbean.



Posted on Apr 5, 2006

I'm also very much looking forward to seeing my friends over there again, on what will be my third trip to the island.

This time I'll be staying at the newly opened Bonairefun appartments, which is owned by Tropicana proprietors Bob and Annemieke.

The new appartments look really nice, and each unit is equipped with a kitchen - perfect for self-catering which is good when there is no dive schedule.

The tiger grouper is one of the larger fish that can be encountered at Bonaire. Although rarely seen above half a meter in length, it grows to twice this size.

Divers Paradise

Dive when you want, eat when you want - total diving freedom! No wonder they call Bonaire the Divers Paradise...

Diving is done from shore, and all you need is divegear and a rental pickup to take you to your favorite divesites. No schedule, no stress, no crowds - just do it the way YOU want to.

Bonaire offers close to a hundred divespots, most of which are available from the shore. Boat diving is only necessary if you want to dive the east coast or the spots around the neighboring uninhabited island of Klein Bonaire.

All the divespots on Bonaire are marked with yellow rocks like this one. Just drive along the coast and stop where ever you feel like it!

New camera coming along

I will be diving with my friends at Yellow Submarine as usual, and I'm really looking forward to visiting divespots like 1000 Steps, Invisibles, Sweet Dreams, Salt Pier, Playa Benge, Karpata and Willemstoren Lighthouse again.

Hopefully, my new Nikon D70s will be housed by then - I'm waiting for my new Nexus housing from Japan. I can't wait to try it out and improve my Bonaire portfolio. Bon bini!
