This was a new site for us this recent trip; we did a day dive, a day snorkel, and a night snorkel on New Year's Eve (complete with fireworks!) here. The site is accessed from Dive Friends Bonaire's operation; the staff was very helpful with a site briefing. Entry is pretty easy by holding onto the left side of the big rock and following the pipe out to the reef. Swimming south takes you along the base of the cliff (it really is vertical) at about 60-70 feet, with lots of plate corals and whips here. Midday and afternoon are best times here so that the wall is lit by the sun. Visibility was typical. Top of the reef is at about 25 feet for your return to the pipe. Snorkeling is very good up in the shallows where there is lots of fire coral. We saw many parrotfish, some small moray eels, and several turtles while snorkeling here.
