Evaluation

*Average:    4.14
The upper parking area is in the bushes, and we have had items stolen from our pick up, and heard of others with the same bad luck. This is a great snorkel for the day prior to flying with lots of area at less than 15 ft, but remember your protection as the sun will burn your backside snorkeling. Octopus, Tang, Parrots, Burrfish, Trumpetfish, Triggers, Lobster, etc. are here in the shallows... and the beach is ok for Bonaire. The dive itself I would rank towards the middle, or just below, for Bonaire dives, which still ranks higher than most places. Swim straight out 150 ft over the sandy beginning, and go either direction... Andrea II is to the right. Boats are not uncommon here. Note: The conventional wisdom on Bonaire is to leave your car windows open so they are not broken by thieves, which means you really don't want to take anything diving with you that you don't take into the water, or risk losing.
