  At the Hilma Hooker wreck

Scuba diving in Bonaire is almost as good as in Grand Cayman, though I think I have to give Cayman the edge for visibility and reef health. But Bonaire is right up there too. If money is an object, then I'd recommend Bonaire over Cayman, since lodging and food are much more affordable there. There are also more shore diving opportunities in Bonaire.

Equipment: Gloves are not allowed in Bonaire. You may want to wear a full suit to protect against scrapes. Sometimes while getting in & out of the water you can get knocked around by waves or slip on the rocks. I was glad I had the full suit when I compared by legs & arms to Cliff, who only wears a shorty.

Directions: Most shore diving is on the western side of Bonaire.
Theme: Scuba Diving
