Bonaire is well known for its great diving. And rightly so. The diving was among the easiest I've ever done. The variety of sea life is amazing, especially compared to the North Eastern US where I usually dive. Granted, just about all of it is relatively small, but it's still a feast for the eyes. And need I mention the nearly 80F water?
The only thing I didn't particularly enjoy (sort of) about the trip was that during the week that I spent there I didn't get a chance to explore much of the island itself. Main reason for that being the fact that I spent most of my time underwater - 22 dives over 6 days. My last dive prior to this trip was in mid-November, and the next one might not happen until sometime in May, so I was catching up for lost time. But I did see some of the island while driving from one dive site to another. And we also did spend some time exploring Kralendijk. So it wasn't all lost. Guess I'll just have to go back there again one of these years to make up for all the things I missed the 1st time.
Finally, having gotten an underwater housing for my camera just in time for the trip, I was luckily able to take quite a few shots of things I saw underwater. I posted a few of the shots that I took in the travelogues below, so check them out as well! And you can see the rest of the photos I took at
