06/22/2016 Mark2 (Avg: 3.88 Review) - Excellent dive and one of our favorites. The coral is exceptionally healthy and lush. The fish life was relatively standard except that we are pretty sure we saw some sort of cephalopod flashing colors underneath one of the corals.

03/20/2015 Will Neff (Avg: 4.62 Review) - Stunning reef. The soft corals in the shallows are as lush as I have seen anywhere. The thickly decorated wall drops to depths unknown. Life is so dense here the sand chutes are choked with it. This dive is food for the soul.

11/13/2014 Brad Stan (Avg: 4.21 Review) - My first trip Bonaire. Amazing. Did shore dives at 23 different sites. This ended up being one of the better dives of the trip which was a nice surprise, especially given the lackluster reviews I had read. I saw a free swimming spotted eel and a turtle which let me follow him/her around for a bit. This one of my favorites of the north dives and definitely worth a return visit.

06/22/2009 Rlskill1 (Avg: 4.25 Review) - Had a fun dive here. Saw a Golden Chain Moray and some Reef Squid.

03/23/2007 Colleen Haggart (Avg: 4.19 Review) - Good dive site with lots of fish. We saw turtle, puffer fish, eels, flamingo shells and more.

09/30/2004 Anonymous (Avg: 3.00 Review) - Really good!

09/09/2002 Jim Haggart (Avg: 3.93 Review) - Just a little step down to a small beach area for easy entry. Easier than it looks. Saw a large friendly squid.
