Shore diving at the Salt Pier was one of my favorites! Navigating into the water and underwater were both easy. Over the course of 4 dives at this site, we saw octopus, two scorpion fish fighting, tarpons, turtles, etc.

Salt Pier is a wonderful snorkel & shore dive site. You will find lots of fish underneath the pier and colorful corals on the pilings. This is a good site for exploring to see what lives under the debris. Lot's of juveniles! This is also...More

While the sea life abundance and variation is incredible, everyone seems to over look the over abundance of trash that Cargill has gotten away with dropping in the ocean. Pipes, wires, toilets(?), machinery parts...you name it, it's down there. For all of the protection the...More

To see the process, first-hand, from bringing in the ocean salt water to harvesting the salt is truly amazing. The use windmills to transfer the water to from one holding pond to the next as the salt concentration gets higher. The final holding ponds are...More

No trip to Bonaire is complete without a visit to the salt Pier. Its amazing how they use the ocean water to gain tons of salt. They have huge lakes which the sun dries out and in the end gain large amounts of salt. The...More

This was one of my favorite dive sites on Bonaire. We had a bit of trouble getting in and exiting at the time we went as the surf was pretty rough, but heard that going early in the morning can prevent this. Loads of fish,...More

Colors of Salt Pier and Salt pans are unbelievable . We have never seen these kind of colors in water before . Must say sun shine does important work with brightness , these kind of places earn a second visit .

The huge piles of snow-white salt are impressive, and it was interesting to see the conveyors carrying the salt to the cargo vessel, but other than taking in the view there's not much to do -it's a working salt facility, and not really set up...More

Snorkelling is really nice at salt pier. It is a shallow dive site so you'll see lots that the divers see and every time I went there were young turtles around the sandy shallows . It's well worth the trip .
