Usually our first and last dive. Right out front of Den Laman. Easy in, easy out with a pier to dive off of, plenty to see. Lots of tarpon to swim with us on night dives.

Bari Reef is teaming with life. We spent a lot of time diving around this reef as it goes from the shallows, do 50' deep or so. Always something new to see.

Bari Reef has faired better than many since corral bleaching and other issues have impacted caribbean reefs. However we say higher fish number and more diversity & new natural corral starts than any time before.

Bonaire is our home away from home at least once a year. Very laid back, diver and snorkler paradise. Not the place if you want sand beaches, sightseeing excursions and hectic vacation. Go to relax, relax, relax and have good family fund.

This was our second dive location on Bonaire and we really enjoyed it. Easy entry, lots of parking and easy to get to, we really enjoyed the dive. We dove many other locations on Bonaire and this one still held up to the others

degsy7 is right - there's a good-sized parking lot, just off the rotary (traffic roundabout); easy shore entry. There are taxis (no public transportation that I know of), and they're not very expensive - it's not very far... More
