Top 10 Bonaire Scuba Diving Sites

Choosing 10 favorite dive sites in Bonaire from the more than 100 available is difficult. First, the vast number of easy beach entries accessible via a rental truck affords divers plenty of excellent options. Second, the sites can have personal attachments for different reasons. Many divers return regularly to the location they saw their first frogfish or nudibranch. Some enjoy wrecks like the Hilma Hooker, while others are drawn to the deeper reefs. Macro photographers (like me) are content spending hours in the shallows hunting for miniscule creatures. For a more comprehensive list and description of sites, be sure to pick up Susan Porter’s Bonaire Shore Diving Made Easy. When Sport Diver asked me to choose 10 of my personal favorites, I had to throw in one bonus site.
