09/15/2006 Maarten (Avg: 2.31 Review) - I believe it was Hurricane Lenny that wiped the coral out of this place some 10 years ago. It looks like a bulldozer has gone over the reef. The coral is coming back slowly. Other point to take into account is the long swim out to the reef, about 500m. The site is very beautiful above water!

05/21/2001 Don Metheny (Avg: 4.24 Review) - We are snorkelers and love Bonaire. Boca Slagbaai is a beautiful site with easy entry both North and South and plenty to see on the shallow bottom. The roads are the main challenge. They are rocky and a bit rough. But the 40 minute trip is worth it.
