Overview

With 20 years of experience of diving on the East Coast from shore. Bas Tol is the guide to use if you want to explore diving on the East Coast. With the East Coast being the more undived side from Bonaire the reefs and fishlife you find over there is not comparable with the West Coast. If you done it once you want to do it again!
