The area is fairly open and the day we were there proved to be pretty windy. Visibility was good, but the bottom drops off fairly quickly, limiting the areas that you can snorkel. Still very much worth going.

No matter where I go diving Bonaire is always the standard I compare with. The water is warm and clear and the reefs are generally pretty healthy.

Best coral, best fish, clearest water. We took a cruise ship excursion and sailed to a place to jump off and snorkel. I think we had about an hour to snorkel and it was otherworldly. Thank the Lord that some folks have worked so hard to protect this marine treasure.

Spent a week here with friends diving each day. The diving is exceptional. One of the best diving trips we have made. We visited multiple dive sites throughout the island. Will definitely be returning again.
