Evaluation

*Average:    3.98
I dived this site 4 times during a recent stay at Den Laman Condos in Bonaire. As others have mentioned, this is an easy site to access. We dove with Bonaire Dive and Adventure, and you can access this site from their pier (it is an easy swim south). Be sure to check the current first, since it runs either north or south depending on the day. The reef is teeming with fish life. We saw a large Midnight Parrotfish here, as well as some very large snapper. You will also see many French Angelfish, Queen Angelfish, trumpetfish and other typical Caribbean reef fish. The coral is abundant from about 30-70 feet. We encountered a beautiful and curious Porcupinefish at 70 feet. Once you get down to about 80 feet, you will see a large sandy field of garden eels. At 90 feet you will find the wreck of the tugboat New York. Behind the wreck at 95 feet you will find a second field of garden eels. If you are lucky, you may spot the large yellow moray who lives under the wreck. There were many spotted morays hanging out around the boat (one found in an old tire). I have posted photo on my website at www.reeftraveler.com
