The article begins:
“Fifty miles north of Venezuela, the
113.5-square mile (294km2) Caribbean island of Bonaire has been a sanctuary to divers ever since Captain Don Stewart, a pioneer of diving and reef conservation, arrived in 1962 and named most of the 86 easily accessible sites. One-hundred percent of the waters and over 20% of the island are a protected marine sanctuary and national park, which leads to a continued abundance of 350 recorded fish species and over 250 types of corals in the pristine waters. While many Caribbean dive areas have been decimated by overuse from fishing, recreation water sports and high rise development, Bonaire remains full of life and health making every journey underwater remarkable.

Book a week-long stay, and go straight from the plane to your first dive with VIP Diving. Allow their dive butler service to take you on private excursions with a maximum of four divers to Bonaire’s narrow fringing reef which begins practically at the shoreline making these the 54 best shore dives on the planet with easy access and entry. Head to Salt Pier and see the only Caribbean island with salt mountains like snow. The salt is waiting to be picked up from the pier and when there are no ships alongside, it is some of the island’s best diving where you can see the chain moray eel which is only found underwater in Bonaire. Take a few steps into the water, snorkel out in the clear aquamarine sea and descend near the pylons to visit large schools of fish as well as octopus, turtles, tarpon, barracuda and caribbean reef squid that gather under and around the pylons.”
