The Worlds Best Scuba Diving - Bonaire


Bonaire is a Caribbean island with more than 86 designated dive sites, 58 of which can be reached from shore. This great accessibility to a range of stunning dive sites coupled with an enormous variety of fish has contributed to making Bonaire one of the worlds premier scuba diving destinations. The fringing reef which surrounds Bonaire has been a protected marine park for the past 30 years, making it one of the oldest marine parks in the Caribbean. It is not without reason that Bonaire's license plates carry the suggestive logo Diver's Paradise.

"The island's location in the south Caribbean gives it an arid climate with little rain fall; consequently, the waters are exceptionally clear of silt, calm, and diveable year round. It is an ideal destination for underwater photographers. Water temperatures average a warm 78-84°F (25.6-28.9°C), with visibility averaging over 100 feet (30m), and frequently reaching up to 150 feet (50m)." (InfoBonaire.com)
